Even if we don’t blog too much about gedit or gtksourceview, we indeed make some pretty cool things for it. This time I’m going to write about the latest things that we added.
- First of all I’d like to point out gtksourcecompletion, the framework that it was added to gtksourceview to provide some completion features. As you can see in the screenshot above, there we have a plugin using the devhelp api. We also have a plugin in gedit-plugins to provide words completion (completion from the words you already written in the opened files). And for that php lovers we have a completion plugin for it.
- Apart from completion features, jesse added a really cool plugin in gedit-plugins to provide multi editing features. Here you can see a screencast that he made. And a link to his blog post about this feature.
- In the win32 world I finally managed to make python work, the main problem is still pygtk, for some reason the pygtk in the gnome ftp is missing several symbols that I need to make work most plugins, so until we have a working pygtk I can’t really make anything about that. I’ve been investigating about this issue and it seems that right now pycairo is blocking people to be able to build it in visual studio. I hope this will be fixed soon.
- Apart from this, say that we are working in a bunch of things that makes and will make gedit and gtksourceview rock on!! like always.
