    This would be an awesome IDE. The kickstarter goal was met and they have released an alpha build of Light-table. Since languages are enabled through plugins, why couldn't this couldn't be supported?

    To get a good integration is actually quite a lot of work - particularly if you want it to be deeply embedded with the tools. SKILL is a bit different from many other languages because you really want to ensure that you can interact with the running tool, rather than the more conventional code/compile/debug loop you have with many other languages. So for example, we have added specific plugins to the new SKILL IDE to do things like Pcell debugging, abutment debugging, and CDF debugging. Of course none of this is impossible with a groovy tool like light table, so maybe for the future!

    Andrew.
