README for building of Scintilla on Qt
There are three different Scintilla libraries that can be produced:
A basic widget callable from C++ which is small and can be used just as is
or with higher level functionality added.
A more complete C++ widget with a method for every Scintilla API and a
secondary API allowing direct access to document objects.
A Python callable version of ScintillaEdit using the PySide bindings.
Building a library
ScintillaEditBase can be built without performing any generation steps.
The ScintillaEditBase/ScintillaEditBase.pro project can be loaded into
Qt Creator and the "Build All" command performed.
Alternatively, run "qmake" to build make files and then use the platform
make to build. Most commonly, use "make" on Unix and "nmake"
ScintillaEdit requires a generation command be run first. From the
After the generation command has run, the ScintillaEdit.h and
ScintillaEdit.cpp files will have been populated with the Scintilla API
To build, use Qt Creator or qmake and make as for ScintillaEditBase.
ScintillaEditPy is more complex and instructions are found in
