Even though I'm using a Windows laptop (for my internship) these days, I seriously can't wait to see this enter a usable state. :D

As of 0.2, you'll be able to open/save script/plain text files (in progress), it'll have syntax highlighting (mostly done) and tabs.

Yes I know it looks like crap for the time being, but while I'm still working out the kinks, QSI has basic theme support now.

Finally, syntax highlighting (mostly) works, at least for Javascript. You can open and save files, and it checks to see if any open files have been modified.

You should probably focus on things like maps/spritesets/fonts first - that's the real pain of Sphere on other platforms. I can't work with Sphere on Mac because I can't create maps or sprites, but I can use any editor for JS.

I just figured I'd work on Javascript/text because I'm new to Qt and C++ and wanted to get something relatively simple out of the way. I'm working on map editing now.

Hey Eggbert, are you still working on this? It was looking rather promising. :)

I am, and I apologize for its inactivity. I have a bad tendency to get involved with too many projects at once. On two of them, a couple more people are being added to the team, and another is being set aside until QSI is at a usable state for more than just text/code editing.

Well, it's good to know the project is still very much alive!

Oh, I know this feeling all too well.  ;D

And now it has syntax highlighting and line numbering via QScintilla!

Blegh, variable width font for code :P  otherwise looks nice though. :D

I kinda got sick of  Windows' library dependency bullsh** and by that point, I just wanted to get that part of it finished. Changing the font will take all of...two lines of code.

Oh, also, when I get some more work on it done, you'll be able to set that in a stylesheet file. Qt uses qss files, which have an almost identical syntax to CSS.

Edit: I just booted into Windows and it won't build, because of dumb linking errors :/

Nice example project. :P (I need to learn not to pollute the global scope like that...)

A style sheet file, huh? I like that. Makes me think of how Sublime Text (or VS Code, or Atom...) stores its editor configuration. You just open and edit a file and see any changes made immediately.

Do you have a Github repo set up for this yet? I'm getting kinda eager to check it out, even if it's still in a very primitive state.

What do you mean by global scope? And yes, Visual Studio Code is my favorite text editor/IDE, so QSI takes some influence from that. It doesn't store regular config stuff there though, that goes in a json file (also like VS Code). Since QSI is much more simple though, most configuration is done through a built-in dialogue box.
there's a link to the repo in my signature.
