So, today I will start telling you about a very simple text editor I am making just for the fun of it. The thought appeared to me while I was extremely bored just “stumbling” sites. I thought – “Hey, instead of wasting your time doing nthing why don’t you make a simple text editor and log the whole proccess in your blog?”. And that is basically it. I wrote up some code. The main window and stuff and that was it.
Anyway, some thing I want to achieve during this “session”:
- Tabbed documents
- Support for large documents
- Windows context integration (like Noepad++ does)
- Code highlighting
- Code folding
- Code structure
- Autocomplete for functions and variables
And maybe something will be added later. This is a very minimalistic feature list for me right now. Next time I’ll show you what I’ve done so far.
