.irev code editor?

Notepad ?? blech.

There is an On-Rev editor stack available to those that subscribe to the
On-Rev service, which includes a nice debugging feature. This stack is not
made available to use who bought the Livecode server executable for our own
choice of web hosts however, but you said you got On-Rev in a package.

A quick web search located several Windows-based editors, like this one:


Make sure that the "Syntax Highlighting" is customizable. Then you can
either find a plugin or make your own that will make your Livecode text
indent and colorize like you want (including 'chalkboard' ).

On the mac side there is a plethora of great text editors that will 'just
work' , including Textmate <http://macromates.com/> (using a good language
plugin written by Ralf Bitter, creator of RevIgniter, available at the
RevIgniter website.)

There is also Coda <http://www.panic.com/coda/> on the mac, and there
is a SubEthaEdit
plugin <http://www.codingmonkeys.de/subethaedit/modes.html> that I hacked
from a Director plugin that should do the code highlighting, but it needs
some work and a keyword update. Scroll down to "Runtime Revolution"

All of the editors on the Mac have a feature where you can click on a chosen
document in your favorite FTP program, launch your favorite editor for that
file type with that document, edit that document and SAVE it back to the
server. A real short round trip, much faster than the "comparing files with
a local shadow file and upload" method.

I don't know if that feature is available on Windows.
