Syntax-highlighting TI-BASIC editor
« on: May 25, 2012, 05:56:22 pm »
Yeah, I know we have a lot of computer-based TI-BASIC editors already, but in my defense, I had an assignment to make something in C# and I decided to make an editor with a themable, extensible, and more efficient syntax highlighting.

It currently doesn't do any converting to or from 8XPs yet (so the Open and Save buttons don't actually work), but it does have a complete highlighting engine that I can easily add more themes (color schemes) and modes (language syntaxes) to. The TI-BASIC rulesheet is also automatically updated when the editor starts up (it's that UTR thing I'd been working on), so it always keeps up-to-date in case there are new additions or bugfixes.

Cool

If the conversion systems work, could you pm me the code? It would be handy if i could convert 8xp files to text files on my ipod, i know there would still be some things to adjust but it could be nice

Nice! You could make that it detects if it is a Axe program/Grammer program and change the highlighter. :)

Yeah that would be nice, then you don't need 3 different convertors

Maybe a option to turn auto-detect on. When tokenizing be also sure that Axe and grammer have token hooks :)

Holy sheet, looks amazing dude.

I always hated how none of the IDEs had syntax highlighting

Thanks :D

And what I'm personally proud of is that it only updates the text that actually got changed, so the editor won't slow down at all no matter how long your program is.

That's good. But loading times could take a while >:D
BTW, could you make then files that are to large to fit into the RAM of that calc? xD

About two seconds for a 20 KB program, which is about as large as possible in practical terms. (That's nothing compared to, say, gedit :P)

Of course—you can do that with any editor. Theoretically the largest program that can fit in an 8XP file is 65,518 bytes long

O.o two seconds! That's pretty fast! Cool!
Be sure that it'll be linux compatible :P

Oh wait, I got two seconds after disabling the highlighter :P

It's actually more like five minutes ... so yeah, it is slow. Whoops.

@ Deep Thought: do you have the nescessary skills to make this (not nescecerally (spelled weong) with the highlighter but it can be if you want) for ipod touch? (has to be cydia) i'll pay the costs, and should it then be possible to have a compiler and decompiler for the .8xp files?

You can always only highlight the visible lines, then make the editor usable while the rest of the lines are highlighted in a separate process. When the user scrolls, then continue to highlight from the new position, if that hasn't been highlighted yet.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Or maybe it first highlits the visible lines and then continues highlight in some other routine where you can also edit while it does all the other lines.
