NppToR: R in Notepad++ / News: Recent posts

Version 2.3.0 adds international and 64-bit

Great news. NppToR 2.3.0 was just released. There two noticeable improvements. First NppToR now handles passing Unicode strings for international characters. Since Notepad++ is Unicode now, NppToR supports it now as well.

Second there was a problem with reading the registry for 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. That has now been fixed and the R-home and Notepad++ directories are read from the registry as they should be when running NppToR on a 64-bit system.... read more

NppToR-1.9.3 is feature complete

Version 1.9.3 was just released. I did a lot more tweeking with the syntax generator that should make it a lot more friendly for both install and updates afterwords. There is even a front end now, accessible through the menu. Which brings me to the point. This is now feature complete for my plans for version 2.0. From here I only plan on bug fixes if any come in.

I have a few things in mind for Version 3 that I'm not even sure are possible, but for now enjoy, and happy coding. If there are any suggestions please post a feature request I would love to hear how you think it could be better.

Minor bug fixes in NppToR-1.9.1

I've fixed a few bugs with from the 1.9.0. The syntax generation is still really slow. I'll be working on that next in my spare time.

Version 1.9.0 make major improvements

Version 1.9.0 has just been released. This makes some major improvements over the previous 1.5. The version jump to 1.9 is to reflect that this is one step away from my planned version 2. All the functionality that I had planned to have in version 2 is there, but some of it could do with some improvement. A few people have been wanting me to get out a new version with these improvements.

The biggest improvement is the dynamic syntax highlighting. The highlighting is no longer fixed but generated at install time depending on the packages present in the R library. There is also a new menu command to regenerate the files after a new package is installed and your looking to highlight the new function names. Along with this is a slightly modified color scheme. Red is for builtin keywords as before, but fuchsia is used for keywords from base packages, blue for those from recommended packages, these were both blue before. The user packages are bolded. I would appreciate some comments on how to improve the color scheme. Let me know what color scheme you use.... read more
