Blue World Releases Lasso Syntax Module For Adobe Golive Cs

October 30, 2003


Syntax coloring and code completion within Adobe GoLive CS to
simplify Lasso development

Bellevue, WA–October 30, 2003–Blue World Communications,
Inc.–pioneers of the Web Data Engine(tm)–today released the Lasso
Syntax Module for Adobe(r) GoLive(r) CS. The Lasso Syntax Module
makes it easier for developers to build and maintain sites based on
Lasso Dynamic Markup Language (LDML). The Lasso Syntax Module is
immediately available at no charge to users of Adobe GoLive CS, the
latest version of Adobe’s authoring tool for Web professionals which
recently shipped.

“Lasso developers have yearned for Lasso syntax coloring and code
completion and now they can get it for free, right within Adobe
GoLive CS,” said Bill Doerrfeld, CEO of Blue World. “It’s never been
easier to begin coding projects based on Lasso.”

Adobe GoLive CS is a component of the Adobe Creative Suite, a
complete design solution that gives creative professionals the tools
they need to create and publish content to print and the Web.

Lasso Syntax Module Features

The Lasso Syntax Module delivers two key features essential to
speeding the process of coding and troubleshooting, namely, syntax
coloring and code completion.

Syntax coloring allows Lasso developers to more easily view their
Lasso code. LDML tags, parameters, and values are each designated by
differently colored text when editing within source view. This makes
it easier to distinguish Lasso code from HTML.

Code completion makes it very easy to input LDML. As you begin typing
the beginning letters of a tag or parameter, a window pops up
alongside your code which contains an alphabetized listing of
relevant LDML tag names. Simply scroll to or select the full name,
press return and the entire construct is inserted. Given the
logically grouped naming conventions established for LDML, code
completion makes it especially easy to view all tags of a particular
LDML tag group just by typing the first part of the group name. For
example, typing “Str” will show all tags in the “String” group.

Additional features include automatic parentheses balancing and
parentheses selection. When entering parenthetical expressions,
typing the closing parentheses will cause the open parentheses to be
highlighted briefly so that you can confirm that the opening and
closing parentheses match. This is useful when dealing with complex
nested expressions to ensure your parenthetical expressions are
properly grouped. Also, double-clicking on either parentheses will
highlight the entire expression.


The Lasso Syntax Module is immediately available at no charge via the
Adobe Studio Exchange Web site at (
To locate and download the module, perform a search for “Lasso
Syntax.” Versions are available to download as either Mac .sit or
Windows .zip archives.
