For scripting languages and especially their DSL ability, a principle called DSLD (Domain Specific Language Descriptor) exists. Basically, it's just a file in a project (or a directory) which enumerates the default imports for some language's scripts in that project (directory).

See e.g.

This is very useful for projects which use DSLs, as the IDE can provide the same default imports as the project provides for the scripts execution, making code completion and code highlighting work properly.

Thanks for considering.
