Thanks to Frank we have a dedicated section for Kate Highlighting files on kde-files.org now. We encourage everyone to publish their .xml files there. The Kate team agreed to add more highlighting files to the official Kate releases, though, as long as they are of general use. For KDE4 we plan to have a section for Kate Indentation scripts, too. But that’s content for another blog, which will follow later
Two years ago we had the KDE conference in Ludwigsburg, Germany. At that time, Martijn Klingens committed a patch to show trailing spaces in Kate. I just change the visualization a bit, the change is in for KDE4 Tabs are marked with a ‘»’ character, and spaces with a dot. On the left you can see the old and on the right the new version; Here is a screenshot:
…and this time it turns out that I am going to akademy. Dublin I’m coming, wheee!
Since KDE 3.5.4 Kate Part supports “smart end“. Right now it behaves like this when pressing “end”:
- go to last non-space character
- go to the last character (i.e. hit end twice)
I’m writing this blog to get feedback about what’s the right/expected behaviour. Is it as described above, or should we first go to the very last character, and to the last non-space only when hitting then end-key twice?
Feedback along with why you prefer solution A or B is welcome!
