Why I Wrote a JS module for BBEdit

Seth Dillingham tells how he got started writing BBEdit language modules. (Don’t miss the Steve Yegge article that he links to.) I don’t do much with JavaScript, but I use his Python and Strings modules every day. The Python one is a huge improvement over the previous version. I’d like to see a module for reStructuredText.

So is this Python module part of BBedit, or is it downloadable from somewhere? Will it work with TextWrangler? I can't seem to find anything about it from his website.

The module's built-into BBEdit. I'm not sure whether TextWrangler still has the old one. It doesn't seem to be documented, but the Python module supports "#mark" to add entries to the function pop-up.
