  1. Is the HOCON support planned only as part of the Play plugin? typesafe-config can be used as a standalone library, so why require having the Play plugin if I want nice HOCON highlighting. :-)

      I agree. I first saw HOCON in akka and later learned it was also used in Play. I since started using the typesafe-config standalone library for config files whether akka/play was part of the project or not. HOCON isn’t part of Play; I think the community would rather see this in the Scala plugin. Thanks :)

      As JSON support is not part of IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition, HOCON most probably will not be available in Community Edition as well.
