run bash script on save?
Submitted by jbrave on Thursday, 28 April, 2011 - 18:26
Don't know if the Macro forum is the right place for this question, but, I would like to call make install automatically when I save a file, from the parent directory of the file directory. Is there a way to do this automatically, and have a button or something to turn the feature off? If this is the wrong forum, please point me to the correct one.

Thanks,

- Joel

Action Hooks

Install the Action Hooks plugin. Then You're able to run a macro at several events.

Regarding quick en-/disabling: Let the macro test for a boolean jEdit property (i.e. prop = jEdit.getBooleanProperty("macro.jbrave.reallyRun", false)) to decide if it should do anything. Maybe another macro (bound to a toolbar button) could toggle this property.
