GEDCOM file language support for VS Code. This extension is a work in progress aiming at providing parsing and syntax highlighting and support for GEDCOM 5.5.1.
This project was borne as a curiosity for the development of VSCode language extension and as a starting point to create tooling usable by family members to help them in their search for familial truth. As such it should be considered an experiment at this stage.
Currently basic syntax highligthing is supported. Note this is a nascent work and the complete list of supported feature is not known. Feel free to suggest by filing up an issue.
You can install the plugin by searching for GEDCOM Language extension in the extensions market place, or by entering
ext install gedcom language
in to the command palette.
GEDCOM was developed by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints (LDS Church) to provide a flexible, uniform format for exchanging computerized genealogical data. GEDCOM is an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication. Its purpose is to foster the sharing of genealogical information and the development of a wide range of inter-operable software products to assist genealogists, historians, and other researchers.
