Re: Emendo text editor

Hi Unia, have you tried Emendo? It is written as fun experiment and to get some experience in Vala, you can suggest improvements if you want big_smile

Re: Emendo text editor

Well, it looks a bit barebones and search etc are not implemented. Also, have you considered proper tabs?

What other features are on the todo list?

Re: Emendo text editor

Really great small thing!! Just the way all programs should be - clean, small, fast and nice looking smile
One question - how to define own source view styles? eg. for highlighting PKGBUILD

Re: Emendo text editor

Thanks, nbvcxz smile

You can install gtksourceview3-pkgbuild from AUR to get PKGBUILD highlighting.

To set different style open file /etc/emendo/emendo.ini,

and change style=kate

to some of those from /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles

Re: Emendo text editor

Sweet - this is what I need. Thumbs up !! One "bug" I noticed - but probably not in emendo but gtksourceview3: it can't display MicroDVD text files (subtitles)

Re: Emendo text editor

* 2.0.3 *
- Added Preferences dialog
- use ColorSelectionDialog instead of ColorChooserDialog

for comparison
http://valadoc.org/#!api=gtk+-3.0/Gtk.C … tionDialog
http://valadoc.org/#!api=gtk+-3.0/Gtk.C … oserDialog

If you had Emendo already installed, before starting new version remove configuration directory $HOME/.config/emendo.

Re: Emendo text editor

I can see that you still improve this little thing which is very very nice. My ask (because I don't know how to add request at bitbucket) - please add configuration for 'tab' and 'half-tab' working (lets say as in mcedit). Now the tab is 2 x space and is not configurable. Thumbs up for great project!

Re: Emendo text editor

I've recently update my version of your editor and be surprised it switch from gtk3 to gtk2, why you have taken this decision?
I used to love your perfect designed gtk3 gui, so in gtk2 it loose all his acctractive to me :-/
