Hi blenderheads !
Here’s my new addon for Blender Text Editor
While working on the cathide v1 and v2, i wrote a lot of code using blender builtin text editor. It’s not the best one, but it gives ability to quickly test your code in situation !
But one thing bothered me a lot, no way of jumping from an operator to another, and when your text is long, having to scroll to the wanted part of the text can be a pain !
So i made TextMarker
TextMarker is a simple addon to store per text block markers with line and quickly jump from one to another
Storing of Markers per text block, the markers are stored in the project
Text marker updating : find new line for existing markers. This feature uses block of 10 lines before and after current marker line. It analyses all possibilities in the text block (if line is redundant) and find the most consistent. This technique could lead to error in finding the line, but very rarely. The update operator also find erased lines, and tag them. You can also choose to ignore indentation while updating
Create automatic markers with search for a particular theme. For example, all lines containing ### would be marked. It allow to add “chapters” by starting specific lines with specific terms
Move quickly from a marker to another, simply by selecting a marker in the list with auto jump function, or manually, without it
Here’s the Github page, download the script from here and install as any blender addons
Here’s a quick video demonstration :
As usual C&C and bug report are more than welcome !
