PIMP YOUR EDITOR! - Mental a dark theme for Webuilder

Postby tomsolo » Fri Aug 15, 2008 12:41 pm

Hi all,

i just played a newest Webuilder version, and i making a new dark colored theme, call: Mental.


Support parsers highlighting and screenshots:
HTML - http://3276.hu/project/wb/html.png
PHP - http://3276.hu/project/wb/php.png
ASP(Vb too) - http://3276.hu/project/wb/asp.png
CSS - http://3276.hu/project/wb/css.png
Perl - http://3276.hu/project/wb/perl.png
JS - http://3276.hu/project/wb/js.png
XML - http://3276.hu/project/wb/xml.png
SQL - http://3276.hu/project/wb/sql.png
Ruby - http://3276.hu/project/wb/ruby.png
CS - http://3276.hu/project/wb/cs.png

If like it, read below how-to.

1. Close Webuilder. (important!)
2. First backup your editor settings: go to regedit find Karlis Blumentals (eg. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Karlis Blumentals\WeBuilder\) then export .reg.
3. Download file here: http://3276.hu/project/wb/mental.reg
4. Install: simply double click to mental.reg (Add registry yes).
5. Uninstall: Close Webuilder. Go to regedit find Webuilder/Parsers and delete, then double click to backuped settings. Start Webuilder.


I use a free monospaced fonts - called Share-TechMono - if u like it, download here: http://typo3.org/teams/design/style-gui ... ypo3-font/
install and go Webuilder Preferences-Editor-General and select it.
Other free monospaced fonts:
Dejavu Sans Mono - http://dejavu.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
Liberation Mono - https://fedorahosted.org/releases/l/i/liberation-fonts/

Few highlight settings buggy and cant configured (eg highlight bookmarked line selecting (all black), caret highlighting color etc).

I tested under Webuilder 9.1 and XP, but - i think - possible using this setting other blumentals products (eg RapidPhp). Just replace in mental.reg "Webuilder" text to "Rapid PHP".

Any Comments are wellcome. Cheers

Rather than support, I think (maybe...?) this should live in the 'self help' section.

Thanks for posting this though - I'm sure it'll be useful for someone!
