The ability to export to a Syntax Coloured HTML file (or RTF) would be great to insert source code (edited with Geany) into documentation files.

    Added in SVN r1811. Use the export plugin to export files as LaTeX or HTML.

     
  • Good improvement. I realized that possibility today, 3 years later.

    Also, exporting to RTF on clipboard, as Notepad++ and SciTe do, would be a huge timesaver when destination of those sources is a word processor.

    Exporting to rtf has not been added yet. If I'm wrong, please help me how to export to rtf.

    You could try printing to file, most documentation tools will import SVG
    for example.

    Since there are a number of good open source syntax colouring applications
    that can be used outside Geany (eg GNU highlight, or pygments) I don't
    think anyone sees this as a high priority feature.

    Thanks for your prompt answer. As a geany user and lover, I appreciate your work. I love geany because of its simplicity, portability, and more importantly its light wighting.
    However, anyone who wants to write a notebook or book by means of an office (Libreoffice on linux as my choice) needs highlighting code(bolding keywords and data types, etc.). Actually exporting to rtf isn't my primary concern. Any tools that helps me to copy and past the code to the libreoffice by preserving color and other attributes of code is helpful. Yes there are a lot of other solution to this problem such as coooder plugin in Libreoffice, notepad++ (running on Wine), and several other solutions but I hope the beautiful geany would has a simple solution as always that users don't need to use another editor.
    It seems there is a simple solution to this problem in geany because of existence of export to html. Kate (depending on kde) have an useful solution. It has the "Copy as HTML" in "Edit" menu. After selecting the code and copying it with this method and past it to Libreoffice attributes of code will be preserved. It perhaps, may be applicable to geany without extra work.
    I understood that there are a lot of more important and necessary features . I apology if my comment seemed as an complain.

    I made this little plugin for GeanyPy that does it:

    Note: I only spend 15-20 minutes writing it, so it might need some touch-ups.

    Documentations of geany pluging have been described in geany.org are based on C programming language. Please send link(s) about how to use and write plugin in python.

    Supporting python as a based for writing plugin, that's fantastic.
    Thank you very much.
