I'm just asking if the development of the great plugin had been stopped ?
last version released of the plugin over a year ago
Is there new versions of the plugin ?!
what's next for "python script"?
That's a great question. Short answer: no, just paused.
There's definitely a number of things I'd really like to do, besides fixing
a few bugs that I know people get bitten by, but time is always an issue
for me. The proportion of free time I have for n++ stuff is limited, and
recently the time has gone into the regex stuff, partially the tidy2
plugin, and partially a proper c++ template and helper library to aid
building plugins. Neither of those are finished. Going through a big change
in technology for the day job has also meant I'm spending a lot of time
reading about stuff I really should know more about. This isn't excuses,
just justification for why I've not been able to put more time into python
script - even though it's one of the few plugins I use everyday.
The things that are definitely on the list are:
Better search and replace - now that the native n++ regex is as good as
Python's (as far as I know - let me know if python does something n++
can't), I'd really like to integrate it better, so you can do fast replaces
with a python function to compute the replace text (kinda what you can do
now with pyreplace, but building it in to rereplace, which should be faster
and more reliable.
GUI integration - embedding a GUI library to allow you to do full GUI stuff
(probably excluding docked windows) all from inside python. Adding menus
programmatically to n++ would also be nice, but I'm not sure if that might
create more issues as I believe n++ sometimes uses menu positions.
That's aside from all the little improvements I'd like to make with respect
to bugs, unit tests for the generated functions, updating the scintilla
functions to the latest scintilla, better console parsing, and who knows
what else when I get started.
As for when, I can't say. Unlikely before the summer, would be my guess.
I hope that answers your question, and isn't too disappointing.
Thank you for your effort
you really had great thing going here
Just waiting for these great features
and i really appreciate your effort and hard working
