Hi,

I know there was a port of the opie-tinykate project to the Sharp ROM knocking around a while ago and I know what happened to it. That was just a plain shame but let's not get into that now.

Does anyone know if the opie-tinykate supported the section collapse features and split window (with multiple source) that Kate does on the desktop ?

If so I may have a look at re-patching it to work with a Sharp ROM as these are just the sort of features that would be great on my SL-C860 with the dev image.

If nobody has seen it then I may dig out an old IPAQ to put OPIE on and take a look but it might save some time if somebody has seen it.

If it doesn't do this then I don't really think that I have time to do a fuller port from Kate to get those features so any Qt based suggestions would be good as an alternative (not tkcEditor please)

Regards,

Andy

TinyKate doesn't feature code folding. You could look if you can build up an editor around QScintilla (the Qt port of the famous source code editor component Scintilla) with Qt/Embedded 2.3.x

Actually just done a quick search based on QScintilla and Zaurus and it seems VisiScript uses the QScintilla stuff and provides the editor.

Going to check this out now, thanks for the pointer Mickeyl

Thanks to you - I wasn't aware of VisiScript. I just added it to OpenEmbedded hence it will be part of the next OpenZaurus feed.

For a while now, I have been rooting around trying to find a decent programming editor for the Zaurus. Sharp ROM. I have an old version of TinyKate that appeared a while back and then was taken down which I think was fantastic, althouy

Later there was another one in the Opie feed for the Sharp ROM, but there were a couple of libraries missing so it wouldn't run, therefore it was taken down.

When I saw this post I tried VisiScript, which as an editor I think it is pretty good, but it is not really great if you are not running scripts. I am doing some Java development that requires for me to make some changes on the fly (I am using jikes on the zaurus to compile), and the TKCEditor is pretty slow.

All this just to ask:

a) Do you know if there are any plans to recompile the missing libraries in Opie?
cool.gif Do you know of any implementations of QScintilla for Zaurus apart from VisiScript, or whether VisiScript can be used in "editor mode" only?

Thanks

I'm using Visiscript for perl so it fits the bill for me.

If you take a look at the source you will find that the QScintilla libraries are seperate so I suppose you could have a go at producing a version of Scite.

I'm sure the community would appreciate it.

To my knowledge, not. There was just one person interested in (doing something for) Opie on the SharpROM and it doesn't seem like he is interested in working on 1.1.x.

I think no one hinders you from using VisiScript just as an editor. It may be oversized for that purpose but it will work pretty nice.
