SyntaxChecker 0.1-betaReleased Dec 20, 2011 by everettg_99
This plugin performs validation checks on your Resources, Templates, Chunks, and Template Variables as they are saved and alerts you to any errors via a pop-up modal window.
How many times have you spent hours debugging a snippet only to discover that you had forgotten a back-tick? This plugin ensures that your pages parse the way they're supposed to.
Put an end to syntax madness!!!

This is a BETA release! If this plugin errantly prevents you from saving your content, then please accept my apologies! Disable the plugin and report a bug with the tag that caused it to choke! Thanks! I'm using it on my own projects, but if you download this beta version, please consider yourself a tester who is willing to help improve this plugin and the MODX experience.
NOTE: this version doesn't do any checks on TVs.
This is a simple installation: after downloading the package, install it. This should create and activate the SyntaxChecker plugin. The plugin is fired on the following events:
You can customize the plugin behavior by removing any of those events (edit the plugin, then uncheck the events under the System Events tab).
Once you've installed the plugin, every time you save a Page, Template, or Chunk, the tag syntax will be checked and you will be alerted to any errors. (See the screenshots). Error messages will also be sent to the MODX error log (Reports --> Error Log).
