First, make sure to use the search functionality of this wiki: there could be other tips for your language in other places.

Secondly, take a look at the Packages page to see if there's a comprehensive collection of scripts/clippings/languages modules for your language/framework. You can also check out the Clippings page, or the Codeless_Language_Modules page - there could be more support for your language than you realize!
