GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 154080
Close Tag plugin
Last modified: 2019-03-23 20:58:19 UTC
I have recently reviewed an application you might have heard of called "GTK2
despite the authors ill received overly ambitious statements that it could
replace Gedit (and the equally unfair hostile reactions to his attempts to earn
money in return for producing windows binaries)
GTK 2 Editor is not yet as good as Gedit
(nowhere near as HIG compliant)
however it did have one particularly clever thin I liked which was a "Close Tag"
feature, which with a simple keyboard shortcut will automatically create a close
tag for whatever tag you last opened.
If you had typed <blockquote>you could then with a quick keypress have
</blockquote> added automatically
i think a similar feature could make a good useful plugin for gedit
(as GTK2 Text Editor is licensed under the GPL it might even be possible to
reuse the code)
I like the idea.
It shouldn't be to difficult to implement even for a new gnome lover?
Should we post a reference to this RFE on gnome-love ML?
Here a reference to the GTK2 Text Editor code that implemets this feature:
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 163170 ***
ops... wrong duplicated.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 163014 ***
Why is an older bug report being marked a duplicate of a later report?
Surely who ever files later is the true Duplicate?
In general it is true, but in this case the newer bug has a patch attached and
some bit of discussion which we would prefer not to loose.
Okay, makes sense, I'll accept and verify this.
Wish you'd explained it when marking it though.
