Thank you for the copy and linking shaosean, I was just looking at all the previous ways this was attempted to be tackled, not for my own use
For my own use, I was looking at just creating a stack that sends what the script editor will be looking for for colors (the front script mentioned above). While the background doesn't bother me, I'd like to create some layouts similar to colors and styles I used in previous IDEs, like pascal, delphi, and so forth.
My own take on all this was that delphi's editor was the cat's meow
but it is nice to see it gave Andy ideas. Hopefully, all this will benefit people like our friend here sooner, rather than later. There was a line I came across in one of the previous threads that really stood out for me -
The bad news is that all of us talk a good fight, but none of us have really put in the time and effort to fix things like font, syntax coloring, etc. I have a big list of script editor things I want done, and when I'm frustrated I actually look at, but I still haven't done, yet.
I keep thinking to myself how many times I see something asked for that has already been done by any number of people, but seems to wind up lost or ignored or even unknown by so many of the people asking about it.
Since we're now talking about an Oss IDE, so many of these solutions (as many past ones have been) could be easily introduced back into the IDE itself, either by integrating them directly, or, as a less permanent thing that can be changed easily edition to edition, like Andy mentioned as a plug in.
Oh my have I gone on too far, have a great day all
