    Python Gedit style editor

    I've been working on a gtksourceview2 style editor based on mike_g's C version here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5790705

    By the way, Gedit uses gtksourceview2 to hilight it's code. This will create universal styles that can be used in Gedit and any others that use it as well.

    I just finished 0.3 and would like to share it with anyone who wants it. It supports the main styles and diff: styles. The only gotcha is that it always saves using the File>Save menu and always saves to it's own dir as out.xml. This should be okay for now. Let me know what you think. Edit, View, and Help menus are there for looks right now. Only File>Save and File>Quit work. Try it and let me know.

    P.S.
    You'll have to hand-edit the xml file after it's saved with your own author and title information, then copy it to ~/.gnome2/gedit/styles/ and rename it.

    What else I want to do with it:
    Be able to set all background colors at once.
    Automatically install to ~/.gnome2/gedit/styles/
    Be able to install universally with gksu
    Save as... menu
    Open... menu

    Probably others

    Update: Version 0.4
    * Save and Save As work properly now.

    Almost a year later, I've picked this back up. Hooray! Updated to 0.4.

    You don't really. Just extract it all and run the main python file. In the future I'll come 'round to doing more to it and I'll add installers, etc.

    Re: Python Gedit style editor

    I really like what you have done. I have been using the Gedit style editor for a short time.

    I have two questions:

    -- How do you change the font for the sample text?

    -- What would one change to make the color outputs
    be only 6 digits instead of 12?

    Can this be used in other Linux distributions?

    It can be used with any Linux distribution provided you install the proper dependencies.
