jEdit Remote Control application for Android (RemoteControl.zip 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.

The Android application currently does not provide any visual feedback when it connects to jEdit - so after clicking the Connect button, do not expect anything to happen. It will only provide some indication if the connection fails. This is something that I'll change in the future.
Also, the application does not listen to edit bus messages so it doesn't know when new buffers are opened. You need to press 'Collect info' each time you want to refresh the buffer list. However, the gestures for "close-buffer", "next-buffer" and "prev-buffer" always work, even if you don't get the buffer list.
