First of all I want to thank you for this great editor. However, I have
a little problem that I can't seem to resolve. In Python mode I want to
use the snippets auto completion to write a class. I type class and hit
tab and I get :
%""" Class doc """
%def __init__ (self):
% %""" Class initialiser """
What I want is almost the same thing but without the % signs :
""" Class doc """
def __init__ (self):
""" Class initialiser """
How can I do that ??
Thanks a lot,
Hi translators and friends of Geany,
I'm glad to announce our string freeze for Geany 0.16 which is planned
for being released not far in future.
I'd be very happy if you could send a patch or complete file with
translation to either the geany-i18n mailing list or direct to me
within the next week so we can include it to the next release
(around February, 11).
To make it more easy for you I've already uploaded updated versions of
the po files to svn with r3537. You can access them from
or by checking out the svn tree of Geany by using e.g.
svn co https://geany.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/geany/trunk geany
Fans of git can also use the interface provided by http://git.geany.org
git clone http://git.geany.org/git/geany
Also on http://www.geany.org/i18n/ are statistics and daily updated
Because of I had a couple of requests in past, together with Alex we
uploaded translation files to launchpad for testing purpose. Since
testing is still in progress without any final decision, I'd like to
ask you to using sending patches and/or complete po files direct to me
or to list.
We are trying to have all translations complete by 2009-02-11.
If your language was translated by two or more in past, please double
check directly with them or by pinging me, so we don't need to translate
same things two or three times. Also please feel to ping me for every
question or if you like to start a new translation for an unsupported
Thanks and happy translating ;)
