I'm working on a new text editor (from scratch) that will do syntax highlighting on Lua code. I have a proper lexer all ready to go and I'm ready to start on the actual application, but I don't want to skimp on one of the best features: syntax highlighting! I'm looking for a quick and efficient way of drawing syntax highlighting, aka multicolored text. I'm not sure if there's anything more efficient than gpu.setForeground then gpu.set repeatedly, but if there is, I'd like to know! And if there isn't, I'd also like to know.
I decided to make an editor with syntax highlighting, just for the fun of it. The name stands for "syntax highlighting editor", it's very unoriginal, but I'm bad at names To use it, run this command on OpenOS: pastebin get ZnwyunqL /bin/shedit.lua The color scheme was (sorta, I redid it later) copied from this paste. Features: Syntax highlighting! Indent on enter Line numbers Jump to line Hex colors are highlighted with the color they refer to (example: ) And probably more in the future if I need them.. Screenshot: Any recommendations or comments are appreciated!
I prefer working with tabs. Tab character support is on my to-do list. It'll (probably....) be implemented soon. For now, I just use Atom, an unlisted pastebin, and pastebin run to develop ShEdit
