And here one from me, both with Consolas and Monokai Themes (although these differ for the two editors as is obvious):

Same conclusion as Shades.

Textadept has moved on since the review as it seems. 7.2 which I'm running right now has tabs for example.

Found a pros/cons review comparing Textadept with Sublime/VIM/Emacs here:

http://yfl.bahmanm.com/Me...-reviews/textadept-review

Current version is 7.2 by the way.

I don't know why, but I really enjoy reading about why people choose the text editors they use.
 Wink

I think it has partly to do with the fact that it's just a text editor, lol.  It's supposed to be this very plain thing, yet there are so many complex options and features, etc. to consider and we get all passionate about them.  Same goes for other software, I suppose, but I really have fun with the text editors.

I think it's also due to the fact that editing text is one of a few key activities in many professions (at least of DC people). It's also one where it seems to be very apparent how it could be improved (although the specifics seem to be quite individual).

The one improvement important to me would be efficient navigation and selection within text. Home/End and Ctrl+Left/Right just doesn't cut it. It's also the main reason why I'm experimenting with VIM again.

I've read an interesting rant about text editors in general here and specifically about atom here yesterday, which makes some valid points to think about (it's in German, but I'm sure google translate can handle it). It made me check out the textadept web site which ewemoa had alread posted about but I had forgotten. After what I have read so far about atom I think checking out textadept or lime (a Sublime clone) would currently be a better time investment for me than trying to build atom (which I still haven't succeeded with).

Funny and sad at the same time!

Indeed. It seems like using git not only serves the purpose of versioning your files, but also to excercise your brain.

Found this one

Supposed to run on Android and Desktop (it's Java after all), which could be interesting. Did not try it yet though.

While the topic of this thread perhaps slightly misrepresents the scope of the article ...

Yes, sorry about that. Fixed.
88  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: May 07, 2014, 05:00:20 AM
Encryption is the important part here: it means that all your notes (or information to make it more general) are encrypted and decrypted directly on your devices (aka client side encryption).

WorkFlowy doesn't seem to do that.

Thanks for this list ewemoa, will have a look. Looking for something like this is on my todo list as well. Although I'd like to have something for both Android and iOS and it should sync to dropbox (which seems to be the de-facto standard cloud service on iOS). Markdown capability would be a plus.

0.14 should fix both those problems. Hope it works for you now!
93  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 05, 2014, 06:04:12 AM
I guess I'm not all that sure what the argument is for using Vim in the Windows world - if Windows is the only OS you ever anticipate using.

...

Vim certainly wouldn't be my first choice if I needed an editor. Nor my second. Or even my third...

I'm afraid I have come to the same conclusion. I've uninstalled VIM on the same day I started this AVE Sad

What I have done instead is to install VsVim in Visual Studio and Vintageous in Sublime Text 3 to make this a two step process:

1. Learn vi commands in an environment which is familiar (and fully configured)
2. Look into VIM configuration at a later time, after I have learned using VIM (well, the editing parts of it anyway)

I have since found that VsVim is superior to Vintageous (which itself is superior to Sublime's own Vintage mode). But both are actually quite usable.

The one cheat sheet I've consulted most often was this one: http://www.fprintf.net/vimCheatSheet.html
although I've started my own with the commands I use most (so I can look them up faster).

I'm using C# string.Split() which doesn't offer ignoring case

How does the following look?

  http://stackoverflow.com/a/1436101

Thanks for the suggestion Thmbsup

I think it would be a good option except that it might be annoying when trying to split with a string which is a regex but you want it to be taken literally (well, not a problem if you know about regexes).

I think the most needed feature would currently be storing parameters between sessions and when changing between individual text manipulations.

That was a note to self by the way.

Another issue for TIMU 0.12.0.0. When I paste a list in the input box in Split:

Quote
"A Kiss Before Frying" OR "Bittersweet" OR "Brain Doe" OR "Code Blue Plate Special" OR "Crime After Crime" OR "CSI Down" OR "CSI Unplugged" OR "Dead Air" OR "Dead Or Alive" OR "Double Fault" OR "Exile" OR "Forget Me Not" OR "Ghosts of the Past" OR "House of Hoarders" OR "In Vino Veritas" OR "It Was a Very Good Year" OR "Kitty" OR "Last Woman Standing" OR "Lost and Found"

and put " OR " (space+OR+space) as the separator string, it does not split "Dead Or Alive" regardless of the Ignore Case toggle. It does not split it if i put " or " either regardless of the toggle. It always splits "Dead Or Alive" (and only that one) if i put " Or " regardless of the Ignore Case toggle.

As absurd as it sounds: I'm afraid it's not easy to fix and I have to postpone it to some other time. I'm using C# string.Split() which doesn't offer ignoring case, so I'd have to implement my own algorithm to fix that.

New release:

0.13
  • Added Search & Replace - Highlight word multiplication
  • Added Web - Twitter
  • Added List - Trim to size

Just saw that the line trimming is not quite correct though. I think my algorithm that calculates the line length takes the space after the word into account for the line length check (although the space is removed later before the append-text is appended). Will have to fix this some other time Sad

You want the rest in one piece, or would this be desirable:?

Despite what it says on their web site, VistaSwitcher seems to run well on Windows 8. Problems might be related to Metro and Apps (which I don't use). There's a nice review here:
