The ancestor thing is fabulous, allowing the Notepad++ editor to be used in place of the marginal OpenScad editor. That thing includes an autocomplete file, which I have expanded here a little bit. Depending upon your preferences you may or may not like it, but I have included some additional keywords, and included the opening brackets for most functions. It works for me, YMMV. To do this I had to remove the calltip functions, but there were only a few of those.
Updated 10/3/13 to add additional autocomplete keywords, including colors and combinations of keywords that I use often, e.g:
"translate ([0, 0, 0]) cylinder (h = "
If you haven't done so, first you must go to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:15363 and install the language file. Then you can add this autocomplete file.
Just like the ancestor thing, copy this .xml file into c:/Program Files/Notepad++/plugins/APIs (Windows 32bit) or C:/Program Files x86)/Notepad++/plugins/APIs (Windows 64bit).
To enable, go to settings, preferences, and select the backup/auto-completion tab, and set the options there.
