Configuring a Sublime Text project to notify LiveCode IDE about updates to script only stacks

Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi List,

I added a screencast showing how to configure a Sublime Text project to a
notify a Levure application running in the IDE about updates to script only
stacks. This allows you to edit script only stacks in Sublime Text and have
the stack script updated in the IDE.

Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Nice. Thanks for all this work Trevor. I am looking forward to using Sublime Text as my defacto script editor. I hesitate to install a web server only because I don't feel comfortable exposing another web server to the internet from my employer's network. I would eventually have to explain why I did it, which would not make the least bit of sense to the owners.

Otherwise I will have to set this up at home.

You're welcome Bob.

The "server" is running locally. It is a stack in the LiveCode IDE
listening for requests from Sublime Text (of any other editor I suppose).
The stack is included in the Levure framework source files. Some
enterprising soul could create a plugin for LiveCode that performs the same
function more generally.

Your are probably thinking about the linter which checks your code for
errors while you type. The  LC server executable is installed locally if
you want Sublime Text to check your code for errors The linter that uses
the server executable is available here:

Thanks Trevor. Just one more question. Do I copy JUST the executable, or the whole folder including Drivers folder etc.

Script Editor fixable? (was: Configuring a Sublime Text project to notify LiveCode IDE about updates to script only stacks)

Rick Harrison via use-livecode
It's always exciting to see new ground explored with inter-app
communications, but with script editors I find myself wondering:

Why not use LC's?

If it's not on par with alternatives and for some reason can't be made
to be on par, why don't we just ship LC with an appropriately-licensed
editor, allow hooks like the ones discussed here for any other editor
folks might want, and spend the development time we used to spend on
LC's editor on other things?

I'm not what you would call a power user, nor do I need an editor that
handles multiple languages and syntax coloring variations.  I like the
truly integrated LC editor just fine.  It is great to see users providing
options for those who need more than that.

Great. You will see the error message in the horizontal pane along the
bottom of the window. You can use CMD + CONTROL + A  to navigate to the
next error in the script.

Richard,

Like Roger I think both solutions are useful depending on user preference.
I would guess that a large number of LiveCode users are happy with the
current editor. Iterating on the one that ships with LC is probably in the
best interest for those users. Keeping everything within LC is definitely a
smoother new user experience.

Personally I don’t expect the LC team to create a script editor that meets
all of my needs. They don’t have enough resources to create an editor that
matches a product like Sublime Text. Sublime Text is an app dedicated
entirely to editing. There are thousands of people contributing tools to
Sublime Text. In addition to the general feature, there is the added bonus
that I can work on my company apps that are created using Ruby on Rails,
Ember, Salesforce, etc. For me using the same editor for all projects is a
big productivity boost.

Options are good.  I'm wondering if perhaps we could embrace that more
fully.

The SE is a very expensive component to maintain.  If we could replace
it with a third-party editor, and put a fraction of the time we used to
spend maintaining and enhancing the SE into providing a mechanism to use
any editor the user prefers, we'd have a better editor in the box and
vast options for using other editors, and save development expense along
the way.

I'm fine with a different editor, as long as it is "in the box".  I don't
want to be forced into adding components from other sites unless I choose
to, like plugins, etc.  The IDE should install as a complete thing (editor
included).

2 cents.

Re: Script Editor fixable? (was: Configuring a Sublime Text project to notify LiveCode IDE about updates to script only stacks)

Rick Harrison via use-livecode
I agree with Roger,
There needs to be a useful script editor bundled with livecode. I'm suspecting that a lot of the impetus for sublime text and other external editors has to do with professional developers' need to use github with script only stacks. For entry level users, the built in editor would be their first exposure and perhaps sufficient.

I also suspect that folks new to programming, or non-professionals might be a target too good to "not" keep on our good side.

Best,
Bill

Absolutely.  No development environment could claim to be integrated
without including such an essential components.

I'm not suggesting we make people hunt for their own components.  I'm
wondering if it makes sense to officially embrace external editors, for
both utility and cost savings.

Apologies that I didn't wrote more clearly.

In all my communications on this I've tried to stress that a good editor
be bundled with the LC install.

But if that editor were external, then the IDE needs only one interface
for managing not only the included editor, but any other editor anyone
might want to use.

Out of the box there's an experience at least as good as what we have
now, and with the click of a Prefs button users could also choose any
other editor they prefer.

Richard,
That makes good sense. A mothership sanctioned powerful external editor, with detailed install instructions, would be very nice and would better support those with higher professional aspirations for livecode.

From what little I know, the levoure framework is designed to allow multiple devs on a single project. This is almost undoable from within the IDE. If however it's just text files getting worked on, then they can be checked out and in to whatever system you are working with, like Github for example. That is my understanding anyway.

I believe if you are editing a script only stack script in the IDE then
saving the script will update the script only stack file on disk. So the
file will remain a text file. Integrating with github is more about using
script only stacks than which editor you choose.

That means scripts in a Levure app can be edited with the IDE editor. I
just find it takes me less time to add features and fix bugs in a large
project when working in Sublime Text which is why I use it.

Re: Script Editor fixable? (was: Configuring a Sublime Text project to notify LiveCode IDE about updates to script only stacks)

going a bit OT here… I've dabbled withj Atom, Visual Studio and also long time ago Sublime… any reason you prefer Sublime?

I still keep dropping out back to BBEdit.. but if I could find a nother editor that had comparable tools I would use it. So far, atom and Visual Studio keep falling short…
