Maybe some of the assembly language experts can add Vampire specific features and support.

there is someone already adding AGA support

some of the todos:
  Add AGA 24 bits color support in copper list
- Add AGA 24 bits color support in load IFF / IFF Anim system
- Add support to change sprites color palette index.
- Update demo to use SCREEN HIDE/SHOW to now display IFF/ILBM loading times.
- Add internal checking to avoid loading/writing outside of memory banks (Load Frame, etc.)
- (WIP) I plan to add in next update a "Use Screen Palette" to switch AGA Palette between screen own aga palette.

- Screen open resolution up to 4096x4096 pixels (Vampire users)

so I think Vampire will benefit from it ;)

Yes, I know that.  I read the README.MD and even supplied the link to it in my first post and visited github before posting, so the SAGA support being added is more than obvious.  What about some assembly experts adding AMMX support?  That was the point I was driving at.

@Olaf : I'm in the place ...
I'm about to try to get informations about SAGA chipsets to see what may be possible to insert inside Amos Professional concerning SAGA chipets ;)
Nothing official at this time/point...

What im after is the ability to edit AMOS programs using an external editor. Could be something useful there .

I believe you can export the code to ascii but you have to import it again .. I dont think there is any current mechanic to allow for an external IDE

I think the main issue is that the "source code" is actually tokenised. Figuring out how to implement things so code could be edited externally would require investigating how the AMOS editor translates text into tokens I presume and replicating that somehow.

Even a commandline converter would doe  the trick if you could put it into the build script in VSCode . Someone has created language support for AMOS EXTERNAL LINK 
So we just need the ability to tokenize it for AMOS.

Amos2ascii is EXTERNAL LINK and Ascii2Amos is EXTERNAL LINK which are both part of the Amos Kittens interpreter project.

Amos2 is now known as AOZ and runs in a browser.

Ok wowzers - with those tools it should be possible to integrate into some sort of build script . Thanks for this.

You're welcome!  There's just one thing more to consider:  Amos Professional v2.0 isn't upwardly compatible to AOZ aka Amos2 v1.0 so your plugin will need some work.

So is the Amos PRO lexicon a subset of AOZ ? or will there be stuff missing ?

It is a subset and extensions won't work on it.  AOZ was never designed to run on Amiga.  I don't know what else to tell you.
