SciTE

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

SciTE

#1 Post by phpayday » Mon Apr 09, 2007 3:35 pm

SciTE is the IDE included as part of AutoIT http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=50,
however it too is portable (win version).

from http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html
SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate
Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for
building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple
configurations...

Some nice features to check out:
tabbed views (with unsaved change indicators)
trace parenthetical marks
multiple file search
foldable code
configurable property sheets
load previously saved sessions

Versions available: Windows, Linux (Debian and Fedora Core5 officially)

A Search of the Database yields:
+ Rejected apps matching your query (click to view)

* SciTE - Not a very Window-ish app. Requires editing property files to make user settings permanent, instead of offering a "Options" dialog box.
Sc1, "a single standalone version of SciTE" however, is in the Database, here.

Is this an inconsistency?

By George, you're right. There is an inconsistency.

I have moved Sc1 to the reject list with the same reason as well.

Thanks!

sorry for the impromptu bump, but what is wrong with SciTE?
it's portable, but not sure if it is stealth.

it's a very configurable editor and is quite light.

I agree with freakazoid. SciTE is my primary coding editor. I like the default syntax highlighting, especially for SQL scripts. I find myself using it more than Notepad++ these days. I just wanted people to know I have used it on several machines including linux under wine portably without issue.

According to the quote above that lists the reason for rejection, the issue wasn't portability, but rather the clumsy method for customizing settings.

also you should note scite saves it's settings in the SCITE_HOME Variable so it will save to the user data directory not with in the app. not very portable at all. I could however probably modify the source and eliminate the problem. It won't be supported by the original authors of Scite though.

There's also Sc1, as noted by usdcs, a single file executable that does not need any DLL or properties files.

I think if you have the various property files in the same directory as Sc1.exe or SciTE.exe that it will automatically use the same directory to write settings?

I'm not absolutely sure about this... correct me if I'm wrong.

If it doesn't write to the same directory, this sounds like a job for JauntePE or thibeaz!

it will always try to write to SCITE_HOME variable so yes jauntepe coud be used for windows xp and earlier but for Vista and windows 7 users would be in the dark so I suggest let me rewrite that part ;)
