Povray Commando File (povray.xml v0.58 by monkstone)
Submitted by monkstone on Tuesday, 14 September, 2010 - 18:16
A beta version of a commando file to execute povray from jEdit. Supports the choice of different output types including png and jpeg. Also supports toggling of anti-aliasing, and easy setting of size by width and height values. Now supports several different quality settings, which can easily be tuned to suit your needs. New!! ability to control in memory buffer (povray-3.7) see povray beta documentation. Add other options to suit your own needs, one thing you must do is set the path to povray. Create a little povray.bsh macro, to automate the loading of the commando file.

Qmake Edit Mode (qmake.xml v1.0 by flyer-explorer)
Submitted by flyer-explorer on Friday, 16 December, 2011 - 05:17
This is my first stab at an edit mode for qmake's .pro and .pri build files. It has:
  • All the official documented variables
  • Some extra "use the source luke" variables from qmake's sources.
  • All the current (as of QT 4.7)'s buildspecs with shortcuts
To activate the edit mode, you will need to add this to your catalog:

<MODE NAME="qmake" FILE="qmake.xml" FILE_NAME_GLOB="*.{pro,pri}" />

Yes, I know .pro conflicts with prolog, but .pro is the default for qmake as well. If you run into any problems. comments, or suggestions, email me at n-p-o-t-t-s u-c-a-r[dot]edu. Add the circle a where it seems appropriate.

jEdit Remote Control application for Android ( v0.2 - new by Shlomy Reinstein)
Submitted by shlomy on Friday, 16 September, 2011 - 03:23
This is a jEdit remote control application for Android. This application can connect to jEdit using the RemoteControl plugin (courtesy of Matthieu Casanova), and then you can use it to select and close buffers.
To install it, open the attached zip file. It contains:
  1. The RemoteControl plugin for jEdit - RemoteControl.jar - which you should copy to ~/.jedit/jars (or %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\.jedit\jars on Windows).
  2. The Android application - AndroidRemoteControl.apk - which you should install on your Android device (adb install ...).
To use it:
  1. Configure the ip, tcp port and pincode (from the RemoteControl plugin option pane), then click Connect.
  2. You can now use the following gestures: drag right => next buffer, drag left => prev buffer, draw an 'x' (without lifting the finger) => close buffer.
  3. You can click any of the buffer names to make it the current buffer.
Please ignore the 2nd line of components, showing two combo-boxes. They are currently not implemented.
Any ideas for extending this app? Feel free to suggest.

This is a version of SideKick that has a "stop parsing" button next to the mode options button in the dockable. The "stop parsing" button is meant for very large files, whose parsing may take a lot of resources and may cause performance problems in jEdit.

Macro for searching an identifier within the current SideKick asset (updated) (Search Asset Exact.bsh v0.2 by Shlomy Reinstein)
Submitted by shlomy on Monday, 11 April, 2011 - 12:39
This macro searches for a selected string (or the identifier under the caret) within the scope of the current SideKick asset. This macro can be useful for locating all occurrences of a variable inside a function - if the function is a SideKick asset. When using CtagsSideKick with C/C++/Java code, for example, putting the caret on a local variable (in a function) and invoking this macro will search the variable (whole word) inside the current function. This is a small update from the previous macro that I submitted, which also takes care of selecting the result that belongs to the current caret line in the hypersearch results.
