syntax highlighting

@serk

I don't use syntax coloring. I find it distracting and sometimes switch it off, or reduce the number of colors. But most people seem to like it.

Iirc the PortablE calls are made to be system independant, so I suppose a specialized text editor would not necessarily need to use Zune directly. I think there may be some examples that show the PortablE rapid design features.

But instead of starting another editor, there are some alternatives:

ShInKurO might be interested in adding syntax coloring to NoWinEd.

Annotate already has syntax coloring. Perhaps the latest version can be ported to Aros.

Simple Ed or Jano Ed code could be used as the base for an updated editor. The source is available. (Actually the source is available for all Aros editors, although I'm not sure about the licence conditions).

Surely it would be more problematic to start a new editor from scratch (unless you want to use the PortablE editor on different platforms).

Either way, a new or updated editor would be most welcome.

GoldEd was nice and stormC had one and user friendly and mos got one and as aros user we have no pro editors when you look back to os3 68k amigas and i like "Jano Ed code could be used as the base for an updated editor. The source is available"

Hi serk118uk,

[quote]is it possible to program a text editor in PortableIE which has syntax coloring for gcc c/c++ than going the hard zune/mui way.[/quote]

I know it probably isn't really your cup of tea but it could in general give an answer to your question _if_ it is possible at all.

So if that should work in freepascal for aros then it most definitly would be possible to do something similar with PortablE. ;)

Or did i completely missed the point of your question here ?

no you have not matey......would be nice to have something like this for aros..

@serk118uk

Good :-)

Then i can tell that the fpGUI project is a GUI layer (for easyness call it a mui for pascal) for the freepascal compiler (a lot smaller then the LCL codebase) that can also be implemented in freepascal as LCL (in which case it's codebase becomes bigger). When not using as LCL (so in it's pure form), fpGUI has its own uidesigner and it's own editor (called maximus -> that was the picture i showed earlier).

More about the project on it's home page ([url]http://fpgui.sourceforge.net/)[/url], a wikipedia article ([url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FpGUI[/url]) and the sourcecode on git ([url]https://github.com/graemeg/fpGUI[/url]).

Current status for aros -> it shows fpGUI is just starting to be implemented for aros ;). ALB just started implementing it, but it already shows the gui. Not all functionality is implemented at the moment. That's what we (or rather ALB42) is working on.

If you are a bit adventures, you could try (freepascal) for yourself if you want to. If you do try and need help because you get stuck or something then please ask. If you know your way around the fpc compiler a little then things are pretty easy to setup.

Perhaps fpGUI's code can inspire to make something similar for E ?
I honestly do not know if there are other widgetset-support available for portablE. I do not want to distract you from using E, it's perhaps just worth something to look at ?
