I'm afraid we need to remove the Webkit-related plugins (Webhelper,
Markdown Preview) from the Windows installer.
This is because Webkit itself is going to be removed from MSYS2:
For the upcoming release we could ship the previous version of Webkit
along with the locally cached old version of ICU (i.e. we will ship ICU
61 *and* 62 in the installer).
But I personally would prefer removing the plugins from the Windows
installer immediately for the reasons mentioned in
and to prevent us from shipping two ICU versions which bloats the
Windows installer even more.
If there are no objections, I will remove all Webkit-related settings
from the Windows installer next week.
first, I would like to introduce myself: I am an IT teacher and long
time IT consultant from Germany who has been using geany as an IDE for
Java and Markdown on (X)Ubuntu for some time.
My experience with respect to geany developing is mostly in file formats
(plus some C++ knowledge - coming from Java, Python, and plain C). So, I
think I'll be more active on the lexer (-> Scintilla) side than on the
geany GUI side.
Now, I created a custom config file that I'd like to share for the RDF
Turtle description language (https://www.w3.org/TR/turtle/), which is
being used in the context of the Semantic Web. The config is based on
the Scintilla Python lexer which does most things correctly.
I added custom compile and link commands for syntax check and creating a
GraphViz input employing two external packages (Can anybody bring light
into how the error regex is supposed to work?). I'm including this
filetype.RDF-Turtle.conf for someone to put it on the geany wiki (I
would be willing to do so if I knew how). I called it RDF-Turtle in
order not to create confusion with the Turtle beginner's programming
The attachment rdf-turtle-example.ttf is an example file to show the
kind of syntax Turtle uses. (It does not make any practical sense in
terms of its contents but it shows the relevant Turtle features.)
I also added some Turtle support to snippets.conf see attached
There is a variant (with respect to syntax highlighting and editing) of
RDF Turtle that is called N-Triples (https://www.w3.org/TR/n-triples/)
which uses another mimetype so IMHO needs an other
filetypes.RDF-NTriples.conf which I also include. The Turtle snippets
can be used for N-Triples as well.
