Ndf IDE

Postby Gronank » Thu 20 Apr 2017 17:22

Excited for the new modding functionality, I've spent the last several hours rummaging through the mod text files. I found that it is not enirely simple to keep track of all the references pointing to different files in different folders and I was wondering if there's a recomended editor that let users easily traverse the files and maybe throw in neat stuff like keyword highlighting.

If there isn't a good editor somewhere, I'm going to have to learn how to create Eclipse extensions...

well, using sublime text + Python syntax highlighting is okay to work with so far

Just need to add specific highlighting + some snippets + definition finding + maybe something to manage files and solutions. No need to bring the heavy and cumbersome machine.

My initial idea was to use my, limited, knowledge which was to code a little tool in python with reg exp and tkinter for the UI.
Just my 2 cents.

Hello,

There is no official NDF editor, but we will soon provide syntax files to enable syntaxic coloration in a few widespread editors. With these you will probably be able to use IDE features/plugins like "Go to definition" (that's what some of us use internally). I'll keep you informed.

That is excellent! I finally followed D-M's advice and is now using sublime with some python scripting to get the editing capabilities I want.
