    Hi, so I wanted to update you on the Code Editor.

    I’ve got a working Code Editor, which by brother Nathan ‘made look nice’(styled it with css) but it is now officially discontinued.

    Basically, I haven’t done it for ages and I can’t work out how to do syntax highlighting.

    This is still on github, so you can go and check it out from there!

  • Version 1.0 Completed

    I have officially completed version 1.0! I have put more detail on github on my repo,  but I have a working code editor and basic terminal. You can edit, save and write code, and also run it. As of yet there is no syntax highlighting, so I need to fix that. Also, the UI looks pretty bad, so I've asked my brother to mess with (ie. pretty much write) the CSS and make it look good. I don't really care what it looks like, so long as it looks modern. I'll come in later and add syntax highlighting that fits the theme, and I'll also implement the ability to change all the colours and to reset to default too. I'll do that by specifying all the colours in a .txt file that the javascript reads each time the page is loaded. I'll allow the JavaScript to also change the data in the .txt file to change the colours.

    Anyway, that's all for now!

  • Partially finished first part

    I have finished about 90% of the core functionality of the IDE. You can use a very rudimentary terminal to open files, which you can then edit. Now, I need to use CSS to style the IDE and implement syntax highlighting. That is not one of my strengths, so my brother has kindly offered to help me. I don’t really know how long it will take, but I thought the last part would take about a week and it took a day.

    I’ll let you know when I have done it
