I've been happily using Geany for a little while now, coding mostly in
Python. I have a couple questions:
1. For a dark color scheme, eg Vibrant Ink, how do i get the active
line to not be highlighted. White text + white highlighting =
invisible text on the line I'm trying to edit. Arrgh!
2. Any debugger advice for python? I am finding winpdb is pretty slow
and actually crashes on my machine a fair amount.
I'm on a windows 7 64 bit installation.

in the last couple of weeks I've been playing with Geany on OS X and got it
to the state where Geany is fully functional, integrated with OS X and have
a self-contained app bundle so Geany can be distributed without any
additional external dependencies. Apart from the few limitations listed
below I'm not aware of any problems.
This is where I would find it very useful if the brave souls among you who
are not scared of running unknown binaries from the Internet and who use OS
X could try out the binaries I uploaded here:
Any feedback is welcome.
* Integrated menubar
* Opening files from Finder using Open With
* Opening files using drag and drop to Geany icon
* Double-click on project file in Finder opens the project
* Retina font rendering
* All basic plugins (without extra dependencies) and themes included by
* The VTE terminal is missing (VTE doesn't work, seems to be a problem in
* Scrolling the editor window is somewhat slow using the mouse
* OS X 10.7 or higher (I have tested just with Yosemite)
* x64 processor
I will try to get all the necessary patches into Geany mainline (some are
already being reviewed, some - the integration ones - I haven't published
yet) and will make a github project with the app bundle creation
instructions + all the necessary config files, themes, icons, etc. I also
plan to provide OS X binaries for all the future Geany releases.
Sorry for my late reply -- I just turned on Digest mode so it took a
while to see your message.
1. I have Geany 1.23, Ubuntu 12.04. Yes, my file is .py
I went into Geany and did these extra things: Turn off "Tab key indents"
in Indentation, Turn on "Snippet completion" in Completions.
Still, when I hit a tab key, it just inserts white spaces (sometimes 1,
2. What's the best way to raise interest in a feature like Code minimap?
I looked at the Feature Request page on SourceForge and they seem to
request mainly support for miscellaneous language. Whereas some of the
slick Sublime-like features (minimap, multiple cursors, put both quotes
around a highlighted word) would seem to be universally appealing.

When using the komodo ide for php I could interact with my program, putting
in data and using checkboxes and other HTML controls while debugging the
code in the IDE.
I would like to do the same thing for a C project. Geany uses GTK+ which has
controls. Can I interact in some terminal while debugging in the geany ide?
Can I use other libraries like allegro to get controls that I can interact with?
