Setting autocomplete to work in Windows gedit

Filed Under: GEdit, Plugins, Python, Windows


Today a friend told me that my gedit autocomplete plugin wasn't working under his Windows box. So I decided to check why and learned a lot of things. Basically the plugin doesn't work because the binary version made for windows brings a custom python.dll which doesn't come with the python json library. So, in order to make it work, you need a working version of the json package and copy it to the place where gedit python.dll is expecting it to be and change the places of some files XD

gEdit AutoComplete 0.10.0

Filed Under: ASP, GEdit, Plugins, Ubuntu

I'm very glad to announce today that I'm releasing gEdit AutoComplete plugin version 0.10.0. Now the plugin has features that I was really missing and it just cost me a little of time between Xmas and new year, so it's my first gift for the programmers in 2010. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Important Notes

This is probably my last iteration of the gEdit AutoComplete plugin using the current architecture, 'cause the gEdit core team (pbor, jessevdk, nacho and others) are working on a native GTKSourceCompletion engine that should be the basis for the next version of this or the gEdit official one. Meanwhile, I'm inviting anyone interested to make additional language libraries to make the plugin better while the stable official version isn't available.

UPDATE: a new version has been released! Please check gedit-plugin-autocomplete in my github repository.

Better late than never! From now on, all my recent open-source contributions will be available at my github.com account. The current projects are:

  • ASP Xtreme Evolution (my ASP framework)
  • Exuberant-ctags (updates to make it's ASP parsing better)
  • Gedit-* (a lot of good things for gedit)
  • GTKSourceView-2.0 (updates to add/enhance language.specs)
  • jquery-vs-mootools (this one is an interesting article I translated)

Although this blog isn't being informative and updated as I think it should be, I'm currently very active and developing a lot of things but not writing much about it. Watching my git account will help you to keep the track of the latest updates in my software development. Enjoy!

GeekHeroComic in iGoogle

Today's geekherocomic.com strip came with an interesting news. It's Salvatore Iovene birthday! And the post was about the book his fiancée built with the last entire year strips archive. I really like this guy work, it's a funny part of my day and to celebrate this special occasion I created a gadget to all GeekHeroComic readers to monitor the latest strip directly from iGoogle homepage.

You can add it using: "Add to Google"

Happy birthday @siovene! Keep doing this amazing work!

Quick Highlight Mode gedit plugin

Filed Under: Application, GEdit, Plugins, Python, Ubuntu

Quick Highlight Mode - Screenshot

This plugin provides a faster and easier way to select the current document highlighting mode in gedit. Just press Ctrl+Shift+H, type the language and press Enter.

It's written in Python, so you don't have to compile anything or get any binary. The source is there for inspection and installation.
