[MonoDevelop] Scintilla over GtkSourceView
Wed, 28 Jan 2004 10:01:34 -0500
I actually use SciTE for my editor right now :-).
Folding is in the plans for SourceView, so I would rather push this then
rely on Scintilla.
The problem with Scintilla is that it is not very well integrated with
GNOME. The idea here is to make an editor that, as I stated on my blog,
feels as native to Linux as VS.net does on Windows.
If I wanted 5000 editor features, we would be binding vim or emacs,
If someone *really* wants folding, I am sure the gtksourceview team
would love and be happy to check in any patch. Ditto for any other
