GSoC 2011 – Kate Code Folding – week 3 (Folding algorithm started)

Hello guys!

I’m writing my weekly article today because I have already started working on something else. I didn’t have time to finish the previous stage because I started the next phase of the project.

I had a talk with my GSoC mentor and a couple of Kate developers and we all concluded that I should start working on the folding algorithm as soon as possible because this is the main (and most important) part. For this part, I built a small new project that will help me implement the algorithm and test it independently from Kate project. You can find this project (and my Kate clone) at this address. There are not so many methods implemented, but you can figure out how things will be developed.

Fortunately, I don’t have to build this algorithm from scratch. I made some research and had some results by the time I was working on my proposal. Here is the paper I wrote based on that research and here is my GSoC proposal, too (it is public now, so anyone can see it).

If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to leave a comment here or to send an e-mail on Kate’s mailing list.

I’ll keep you in touch with my progress,

Adrian

  1. I’m glad to learn that Kate is getting a new code-folding algorithm. Kate is by far my favourite editor, but the current code-folding can get confused very easily, and it’s difficult to reset. Looking forward to this!
