I'd previously written a sorta clumsy tool for setting up Geany with a dark colorscheme, and posted about it here in case it was of interest to anyone. It involved copying some files around, and wasn't very flexible. I've since updated/rewritten it. Improvements are:
* Now it's just one simple python script.
* It's interactive. It'll ask you before it clobbers your existing ~/.geany/filedefs/filetypes.foo files -- if you answer 'y', it *will* of course clobber them.
* Aside from the dark colorscheme, it now comes with a lovely light colorscheme. Nice low contrast, as usual B^). It's also flexible enough to add more colorschemes too.
Dunno if it'll run on anything but a Gnuish OS (since it looks up $HOME and writes files to $HOME/.geany/filedefs). Anyhow, here it is:
Oh, also, seems like it would be useful if there was some easy way to reload those filetypes.foo files. Currently, every time I change them, I've got to quit and restart Geany to see the changes.
And, as long as I'm here, a feature request: when I select something like "0xffddee" and open the color chooser, it's great that it starts off showing me that color. But it really could use a palette where I can save colors while I'm picking and choosing. Also, when I hit ok, seems like it should go ahead and replace the original string I selected with the new one, right?
