I would like to add GeanyHighlightSelectedWords, to Geany Plugins.Would it be okay that I do a git pull-request for doing this? I
am the mgnt user on sourceforge, and last week there was a ticketadded to GeanyHighlightSelectedWords, ticket #2, and in thisticket was a question: why not make a pull-request to Geany Plugins.
I know there would be some things I would need to do before, likereplace the Makefile with Makefile.am, the autotools, automake way,and write a README file using restructured text content so that thatREADME file can be converted to html. Maybe there is more thatshould be done.
I hope my question is okay.
Have a great day,Marius Ioan Buzea
I just made a test build of Geany Plugins 1.22 for Windows.
A little surprisingly for me, it all worked fine on the first attempt :).
I only had problems loading the Geany-Lua plugin with some strange error
message which I didn't investigate yet:
The error message occurs on plugin loading. I'm not sure whether it is
caused by my system or something else.
If anyone wants to test it, any feedback is appreciated.
... requires an existing Geany 1.22 installation.

I've successfully managed to build Geany on MSYS2, against both gtk2 and
gtk3. I've started to describe the steps on the wiki:
https://wiki.geany.org/howtos/win32/msys2, however the page is not
complete yet (but complete enough to produce a running geany).
Short introduction, see the wiki page for more details:
Msys2 is a successor to msys which offers a unix-like environment on
Windows combined with a pacman-based package manager. It's purpose is to
simplify win32 compilations, and it's doing great at that for GTK+ stack
and related projects. In fact, it's so good it should become the default
method of compiling Geany on Windows.
See http://sourceforge.net/projects/msys2/ and http://msys2.github.io/
For me, as regular Arch Linux user, this is by far the most easiest
method to compile Geany on Windows. And it has the *huge* advantage of
providing up-to-date binaries of the GTK+ stack, in contrast to the
obsolete gtk bundles. I heard the GTK guys plan on removing the bundles
and instead rely solely on MSYS2 for all of their win32 efforts.
I don't use my Windows VM very often, but I realized today that the
completion popups were broken there during the 1.25 cycle .
Could everyone using a development version of Geany under Windows tell
me whether it works for them or not, and their Windows and GTK versions?
I myself tried on XP SP3 with GTK 2.24.10.
I found a way to fix the issue, and although it doesn't make any sense,
it seem to fix it reliably. Unfortunately it has a small side effect
that completion popup will have a minimal height that might be taller
than necessary when there is only one item in the list. But this
cosmetic detail is probably less problematic than a blank popup, right? :)
But I'd like to know if the problem happens to everyone or not, and
whether the attached patch fixes the problem for everyone with the issue.
Thanks in advance!

If you have any questions, notice bugs, or have ideas about API
improvements, do not hesitate to [fill a bug and] drop me a note.

Thanks to b4n, elextr, techee, and the others who helped.
The final spawn was improved quite a bit compared to 1.01.
