clubfan has written a new gtksourceview based editor for anjuta reusing gedit code. I am really happy to see this work and I’ll try it out soon. All the hard work done in the last months to make the gedit code clean and nicely split in GObjects pays off since apparently reusing it for anjuta has been pretty easy. Obviously all the cut&pasting is a subotimal solution since makes sharing fixes harder, but as a first step I am happy that at least we avoided to reinvent the wheel once again.
I also noticed that every object was renamed to the use the “anjuta” prefix… while in general properly namespacing the code is a good thing I would have preferred if the “gedit” prefix was kept: it would be one less problem when it comes to merging bugfixes.
I also suggest to keep a file in cvs with the date of the gedit “snapshot” you used so that you can see more easily what needs updating.
In the future we should really split things in a real library and push some of the bits in lower part of the stack like gtksourceview and gtk itself.
PS: Johannes, the comments are not in spanish, they are in italian and are just a few leftovers from developement discussions we had and that we plan to cleanup as soon as possible :)
