Questions about SciTE

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello all,

It's been a while since I don't code anything in AutoIt...

I've cleaned the dust off SciTe and I realize I wasn't using half of its features before.

I see the AutoIt Edition comes with some Lua support, but I don't know what Lua can do for SciTE. Is it a macro language for the editor? (Not interested in WoW bots! :shocked: ) Could anyone explain briefly?

Also, I'm thinking about making SciTE my main dev tool, but as I recall, AutoIt Edition is a customized version of SciTE. Can I extend that one to be equally functional for other languages? I'm mainly thinking about Python and PHP here, but maybe it'd also be good for Javascript, HMTL...? If so, where can I grab more syntax files?

I'm fed up of having a hundred different editors, really.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this question...

Regards,

Guillermo

LUA is an tool which allows you to make custom SciTE functions, like we did for AutoIt3... see the helpfile for the available LUA macros.

I am including the same version of SciTE as Neil Hodgson releases in the SciTE4AutoIt3 installer including all Lexer.properties files.

I have only added a load of tools and LUA function especially for use with AutoIt3 development in SciTE.
