What's your favorite tool for Rebol coding under MacOSX ?

 [1/25] from: Karim::elfounas::easybraine::com at: 15-Nov-2007 16:17


Hello, I have a Mac since some years (Mac Mini) but it was a complementary computer (at start for testing a MacOSX version of rebol which never came out in final release). Now I completely switched (for other reasons than REBOL ;-) )and my main computer is a brand new MacBook Pro with Leopard instead of my Acer TravelMate with WinXP. I have a license of TextMate and I use Eclipse for other developments. I mainly used Crimson Editor with WinXP but TextMate is very different and has no Rebol syntax highlight by default. I discovered also other text editors (Textwrangler, Jedit,...) I want to ask to other Mac users... What tool do you use to code Rebol code and why do you prefer this one ? Is somebody already made a Textmate bundle for Rebol ?

Hello, I'm not a MAC user (sorry), but if you can run java, then try JEDIT. It is a powerful (free) editor, and natively supports Rebol ;-) I think it is a great choice! On Nov 15, 2007 4:17 PM, Karim El Founas <Karim.elfounas-easybraine.com> wrote:

Hi Karim, KEF> Is somebody already made a Textmate bundle for Rebol ? Yes! Will Arp did one, and Chris Ross-Gill added to it (or the other way around, can't remember). I haven't been able to make the switch yet, but may in the near future. I tinkered a bit with extending the bundle the others created, and I'm very impressed with TextMate so far. I would like to see the bundle improved, if others want to collaborate on that. -- Gregg

Hello I'm using Rebol on Mac OSX and my favorite text editor is Textwrangler from Bare Bones Software because this editor can directly execute Rebol code in the terminal.

I go back and forth between windows and Linux. I use Crimson Editor on Windows and have been happy enough but I have not been able to find an editor on Linux that I like. I just found wscite which seems ok and runs on both win and linux. I quick look at JEdit looks positive. Is there a simple way to launch the script from the editor? Alan Macleod

Any idea where we can get the bundle from? Is this the type of thing that could be added to DevBase when it goes public? Ged.

Hi Ged, GB> Any idea where we can get the bundle from? If Chris or Will don't jump in, I'll see if I can find their links. I could email you mine as well. I don't know how, or if, people want to collaborate on it, but I'm happy to host it on my site, so it's readily available. I'm just short of time at the moment to do much with it.

I think it would be great to have a way to collect highlighters and other support tool files. -- Gregg

Is it not possible to add these files to the Rebol.org library? This seems to be the best place other than at the text editors site. I know Textpad provides links to all of the syntax files that have been uploaded by users... Don't all of these tools do this?

 [10/25] from: pwawood:g:mail at: 15-Nov-2007 17:12


Hi Karim I tend to use JEdit because I can use it on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. It's not the best editor in the world but I do find it works pretty well. Regards Peter On 15/11/2007, Gregg Irwin <gregg-pointillistic.com> wrote:

Hopefully with R3 this kind of question will become redundant - in that REBOL text handling will be good enough to write a decent text-editor in REBOL! -- Carl Read. On Thursday, 15-Novenber-2007 at 16:17:37 Karim El Founas wrote,

Oh yes. Just imagine a text editor that provides access to REBOL the same way TextMate provides access to the console. It would be much lighter, and could port easily to many platforms. Lets hope. Ged.

Gregg, Thanks. I'd be grateful if you could email what you have to me. Regards, Ged.

A text editor written on rebol can search into system/words for color coding and even code insight (objects, function parameters and refinements,...). No need to upgrade the editor if a newer version of rebol is released. Just execute it with the new interpreter. It could be great ! Thanks for your comments. I'll go deeper inside Textmate (and insight regular expressions) et I'll try also Jedit. As I still working a lot on Windows, the fact that the same editor is available in both OS is a good point for me. -- Karim EL FOUNAS EasyBraine SA Campagne des Rites, 8 - 1421 Ophain Bois-Seigneur-Isaac Tel: +32 (0)2 387 32 34 - Mobile: +32 (0)495 57 32 34 karim.elfounas-easybraine.com - www.easybraine.com

Peter, When you use JEdit is there a way to launch a script from the editor? Alan Macleod

 [16/25] from: pwawood:gma:il at: 17-Nov-2007 4:10


Alan There is a console plugin for JEdit which gives access to the command line. I tend to use the GUI terminal application in both Mac OS X and Linux (Ubuntu) myself. The JEdit console plugin does have a mechanism for running scripts directly (Commando), it comes pre-configured to run python and perl but not Rebol. I haven't looked into what it takes to configure it to run Rebol. Regards Peter On 16/11/2007, Alan <fergus4-bellatlantic.net> wrote:

Thanks, I had downloaded the console plug in and saw what you are talking about. I'll have to look at it again. Alan Macleod Cell# 347--886-7055 Xpeditus inc. 26 Railroad Avenue, #330 Babylon, NY 11702 631-649-4200

For those who use jEdit under Linux, which JVM do you use? The feature list looks very impressive, but the first experience was that it was extremely slow on my computer. It's not the most modern, but I think it's fast for other tasks. It's a AMD AthlonXP 2200+ with 512 Mbyte memory. I have tested both sun-java5-jre and sun-java6-jre under Debian. Would it be better to use kaffe with JIT. Or is it possible to precompile jEdit for my system? Best regards, Peter Carlsson

It seems to run okay under Java 5 under Ubuntu on a Pentium 4 1.8ghz with 768Mbyte. In fact it seems quite a bit slower on my iBook G3 900mhz with 384Mbyte under Java 1.4. I'm not sure if that's due ot the processor, the memory size or the JVM. Probably all three. Peter

My link is here: http://www.ross-gill.com/r/textmate/ I based mine on Will's bundle. Note: not only can you run Rebol code from TextMate, you can use it to develop features within the editor -- check the 'Help on Word' and 'Compute Value' commands in the Bundle Editor, for example. You could quite easily develop a Make-Doc bundle that will convert your document within the editor at the touch of a hot key. - Chris On Nov 15, 2007, at 10:59 AM, Gregg Irwin wrote:

Gregg. Do you have cygwin installed? Ged. On Nov 29, 2007 9:09 PM, Gregg Irwin <gregg-pointillistic.com> wrote:

Hi Ged, GB> Do you have cygwin installed? Yes. At first it didn't show up at all, then it was in the bundle list with no name, and missing the unsupported bundle bits (like templates), then E crashed a couple times as I tinkered with the bundle stuff, then it was gone again. I'll tinker more when I have time. -- Gregg

I just put Chris' bundle in with the others. And it seemed to work fine until I tried to run my script. Then I got: C:\Documents and Settings\jfallie\Application Data\e\tmcmd: line 4: rebol: command not found I gess it can't find Rebol, but I have no idea what to do to help it. jf 2007/11/29, Gregg Irwin <gregg-pointillistic.com>:
