[MonoDevelop] Scintilla over GtkSourceView
Tue, 27 Jan 2004 11:16:03 -0500
Yes we know about this and have made the choice to not go this path for
a few reasons:
* Scintilla does not do rendering as nicely as GtkSourceView; no
pango use, it looks horrible.
* Code folding should really get into GtkSourceView. I have heard
that adding support for it is in their plans.
* Scintilla would be a dependency that is not in the GNOME
As well, I am going to be making the buffer very plugable. Please feel
free to maintain your own Scintilla bindings, if you feel you need it.
We would probably be happy to host them on svn as an optional plugin.
