...or less, actually.
It'd be nice to have a *simple* script editor in Ardour.
I expect most devs will use their favorite editor on their favorite
platform, but for something simple e.g change a number here and there,
it'd be useful to have a very basic text editor that works cross
platform and comes with Ardour.
The API is simple:
/** open a dialog editor window, return the edited script
* when the user presses OK, the original script on Cancel
std:string editor_dialog (const std::string& script);
This project is orthogonal to Ardour development in general and requires
no direct knowledge of the Ardour codebase (safe for ArdourDialog which
is GTK dialog).
Any suggestions for a simple GTK text editor? Any takers?
Bonus points for syntax highlighting and checking the code with
bool ARDOUR::LuaScripting::try_compile (const std::string& script)
