How syntax highlighting works

This article was written 1 year ago. I finally found the time to translate it to English

If you are a programmer, you spend a significant amount of your time coding. It doesn’t matter how many buttons or menus or IDE or editor has, the core is a code editor component. Do you know how it works?
This article explains how syntax highlighting in Qutepart (and katepart) works. The article is not about UI, but about the architecture. If you are interested, lets go..

Qutepart - new code editor component for Enki

What is the most important part of a car? I guess an engine. And what is the most important part of text editor or IDE?
I guess a text editor component.

For many years Monkey Studio had been using QScintilla. Enki, derived from MkS, also used to use QScintilla in the first release. And we never have been happy with it. In fact, we have been hating it, but, there are no alternatives for Qt.

Now this problem is resolved for Enki. I created own code editor component - Qutepart

Windows Python/PyQt support improved

After many users reporting python on windows did not worked fine I take the time to improve its support inside Monkey Studio.
I have commited some code in the svn / dev branch (svn://, which now auto detect python/pyqt installations reading the windows registry.
The default commands have been updated too, and these changes affect all operating systems.
You can checkout and build the branch using these commands:

  • svn co svn:// mksdev
  • cd mks dev
  • qmake -r
  • make -j6

The first public release of Enki

I started mksv3 project 2 years ago. It those time, it was not clear if it will be next version of MkS or separate project.
You can read about it here

Now the project got it's own name: Enki, and it's own website:

During 2 years I've made few releases. But, project was mentioned only here and in few mailing lists. I didn’t do any public announcements. Because the project was not ready. Not better, than other text editors. But, now I think it is right time. This is already not a prototype, but really useful software.

10 August 2012. Enki birthday!

Official Ubuntu PPA moved

Hi everyone,

you might not know me, but if you are using Monkey Studio on Debian, Ubuntu or some derivative distribution, I am the guy to blame if something does not work as it should ;)
And today I broke something intentionally. I moved the PPA with the latest Ubuntu packages from my personal Launchpad account to the Monkey Studio group. That gives my fellow developers the possibility to change stuff on their own without waiting for me coming back from vacation, be awake etc.
