[MonoDevelop] Scintilla over GtkSourceView
Wed, 28 Jan 2004 15:47:02 +0100
One advantage of Scintilla is that it HAS folding and many other
features and it could be used inside #Develop too (GtkSourceView would
be a step backward for the windows version) this will enhance the future
compatibility of #Develop and MonoDevelop if we choose to do
it this way. I don't know if you have seen this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scide/ this is the beginning of a
wrapper for scintilla ... I don't know
if there are more out there.
