I think OpenModelica has a very bad editor. Specially when you want to edit the code and it is not complete, OpenModelica doesn't allow saving! I usually have to use a different editor to write the code incrementally and open it in OpenModelica for simulation.

What is the best editor (including plugins) for Modelica Language? Features I want to have are:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Auto Code Completion
  • Cross Platform
  • Open Source

I would appreciate if you could share your experience.

  • I can suggest to make an plugin for CudaText (cross-platform, open source) and its Python API. It has Modelica lexer. Current editor SimForge is in Java, it's not easy to change. – RProgram Nov 27 '17 at 6:13
  • @RProgram how about the existing plugins for Vim or Atom? – Foad Nov 27 '17 at 8:50
  • It's good alternative, but CudaText is faster than Atom. – RProgram Nov 27 '17 at 13:10
