Thread of the message « Nice editor »  
[Subject] Posted 11/17/2004 at 13:28 by Rembrand Down

This is a nice editor. Really is and certainly for freeware!!! I use it for PHP 5 now (although PHP5 code completion works only as long as code for PHP4 is entered).


I think it matches other shareware editors or commercial ones without any doubt. I use it for some days now and I have to say that I like it for at least:

- small footprint
- clean and easy to install
- stable (did NOT crash at all so far while commercial ones did)
- nice configuration options because of font settings, colors on keywords, strings, vars, reserved words, symbols and other syntax related stuff.
- Very nice and goodworking var/classes/function tree (left tree pane)
- easy to integrate with PHP
- code completion
- code hints
- debug results of the PHP compiler/interpreter
- easy non-clutered windows when editing and switching between multiple PHP programs. I do like that tab stuff, it switches much more convenient than MDI windows.

Man o man..... to program all this takes a lot of time.

If you have spare time left (I hardly can imagine) you would have the BEST editor if code completion is based on a text/ascii file (now it is internal I believe). If additionaly one could also add self made code hints/examples (say up to 12 rows of small text) based on your lng files, then it is PERFECT!!!!

Keep up this very good work. I think that you should sell this software as it is right now.

And I'm only using it for PHP!!!! ..... not even HTML...... but I will do so within the next few weeks

Regards Rembrand

Hi Rembrand,

Thanks

Yes all PHP functions are not in code completion, such as "experimental" functions.
If you think I forgot an important block or simple function, please let me know.

I don't understand what you mean.

> - clean and easy to install

Yes, the famous "Unzip&Run". And also it doesn't touch the register to work.

> - stable (did NOT crash at all so far while commercial ones did)

Yes it is stable; but the truth is there is an "anti-crash" feature within HAPedit, and this feature is working at 99,9%

> - nice configuration options because of font settings, colors on keywords,

You are speaking about PHP syntax highlighting. Yes I made a big effort there and a lot of users are considering that is the best one. Some others found what is missing

> - Very nice and goodworking var/classes/function tree (left tree pane)

Not yet fully optimized, but it is working fast and right (for my very personnal point of view)

> - easy to integrate with PHP

Yes for a standard usage. In the future, I will do more:
- no more settings changement to allow to work with HAPedit
- different PHP versions
- PHP installed over the local network

It should be one of the main things of release 3.2

> - code completion

As I said in HAPedit French Forum, PHP classes detection should be integrated in 3.2
Stay tuned

I started this project by nov. 1999, precisely 5 years!
Happy birthday HAPedit

To be fast, data are formated into a specific format. Any format error in this file and this is the "anti-crash"
Anyway, I will remind your feedback about that.

Please, could you be more precise; I don't understand.

This is your opinion and I'm very happy to know it
In a few words, HAPedit is my own editor for my own needs and I share it with anyone. At same the time users send me their feedback and I learn things (for my own needs) and I integrate these things in HAPedit. This is a loop, and I think a business will break this very benefit loop.
Furthermore, ..., no, too much things to say

All the Best.
Thanks for your feedback.

I have to agree, I've been using it for editing ASP files and I'm amazed at how fast and stable it is. Excellent work sir!

I think he means it's great that it only takes 2.7 megs of drive space. At least that's how I took it.

Another wonderful thing, and something I wish all Win apps had.

Please, keep up the great work!

You are welcome.

Oh yes; it doesn't use a lot of space on disk. The size will increase if you donwload many country languages and the add-onds.
