Re: [tlaplus] Toolbox Plugin development
The JSON is auto-generated. The files you're looking for are grammar.js and src/scanner.cc for the context-sensitive parts of the language.
You can find the language spec for TLA+2 on this page: http://lamport.azurewebsites.net/tla/tla2.html

As a languages geek, I had heard of tree-sitter, but had never actually looked at it.
Wow... It just totally freaks me out that someone who has the ability and desire to build a parser generator sees fit to use JSON as the input syntax.
I just cannot get that level of insanity into my head. I mean, I can understand XML folk abusing XML like that, but this is a *parser* person using *JSON*.
Is there a more readable syntax for TLA+ somewhere?
