hi there. i recently discovered a win-based text editor Programmer's Notepad
which i've been using for certain "touch-up" jobs in which i need to modify a lot of HTML elements.
i found it very easy to create my own Custom code-snippets, so i seek a Linux FC5 app
which might perform similarly.
my snippets are saved, and reusable via an XML file. note, i created these from scratch, realizing that the "horizontal bar" indicates the "cursor position", or "insertion point". if i highlight a line, and 'double-click' my snippet (see below) named "span-class" for example, the result has span elements around the line of text.
the code looks like this:
<clips name="My Custom Clips">
<clip name="CLASS"><![CDATA[ class="|"]]></clip>
<clip name="STYLE"><![CDATA[ style="|"]]></clip>
<clip name="span-class"><![CDATA[<span class="">|</span>]]></clip>
<clip name="li-class-eq"><![CDATA[<li class="">|</li>]]></clip>
<clip name="dt-class"><![CDATA[<dt class="">|</dt>]]></clip>
<clip name="dd-class"><![CDATA[<dd class="">|</dd>]]></clip>
i figured it out just by looking at the "default" snippets. it was simple.
how might i get something like that going in Kate? or gphpedit? or any of the hundreds of other Text Editors-- does anyone use something which might be so "easy to customize" as the XML shown above?
