This extension provides language features for GameMaker Language (GML), among other helpers for GameMaker project development.
⚠️ IN EARLY DEVELOPMENT, EXPECT BUGS AND INSTABILITY ⚠️
Stitch and its logo are Trademarks of Butterscotch Shenanigans (a.k.a. "Bscotch"). Stitch and Bscotch are unaffiliated with GameMaker.
Stitch: New GameMaker Project command available via the file explorer context menu for folders. This command clones a template GameMaker project into that folder. A very basic built-in template is used by default, but can be overridden with the stitch.template.path configuration option.
Stitch: Open in GameMaker command available via the palette while editing .yyp, .yy, or .gml files, and via the file explorer context menu for the same file types. This command opens the project in the GameMaker IDE version last used by the same project, automatically installing that IDE version if necessary.
GML syntax highlighting
Autocomplete for built-in GameMaker functions and constants
Editor support for a project's global symbols (macros, script functions, script enums, and globalvars)
Find all references
Autocomplete for a project's resources ( sprite IDs, object IDs, ...)
Format and validate .yy/.yyp project files. (To use it, set it as your default formatter for those filetypes.)
Add dynamic syntax highlighting for the different resource types so they can be color-coded in the theme
Add tree for project resources, including object events
Organized based on the same in-game folder view
Add ability to create, delete, and rename resources (sprites, etc)
Improve autocomplete for global enums (the . trigger should check to the left to see what we're dotting into)
Add resource-specific built-in autocompletes (e.g. x in objects)
Differentiate the different types and scopes of variables during parsing
Add go-to-definition and find-references for non-global identifiers
Add commands for running projects directly through the Runtime
Add commands for changing the target IDE & runtime version
Rename project-specific globals
Add mechanism to dynamically load syntax definitions that match the project's runtime version
⚙️ Supported GameMaker versions
Different GameMaker versions may have different features and built-in functions, constants, etc. This extension will still work with many other GameMaker project versions, but it might give you incorrect autocompletes or surprising command outcomes!
This extension uses the GameMaker syntax definitions provided by the GmlSpec.xml file from GameMaker Runtime 2023.200.0.312. You can configure this extension to use a different spec file.
