First of all, I must apologize for any ignorance. I am not a python developer. I'm simply trying to pick the brains of those who know more than me to help me determine the best way forward with a project I envision.
I use sublime to program PHP, and love it. I'm wondering if the plugin/package system is robust enough to make sublime into something it was not intended for, an editor which parses English specifically geared toward the writing of poetry. The general text editor and line numbers are good, but the ability to parse lines of text using dictionaries or the nltk to count syllables, separate words into syllables, lookup dictionary/thesaurus/rhymes then sort these rhymes into metrical feet (ie. iamb, trochee, dactyl, etc.) by comparing them to word lists, is what I'm looking to add. Would something like this be possible in a plugin, or would it require being written as its own application? I'm trying to get some input before I go off the deep end and learn python, or hire a developer, only to find out its not possible. Thank you for any input you can give.
