Re: [gedit-list] gtide - gedit to IDEs (and beyond)

Hi Sébastien,

I have some specific answers to other parts of your mail, but I think those are secondary and can be addressed later

Absolutely. I 100% agree and this was my main point in my previous mail. What I am trying to say is to not worry right now if this is going to be a library that is going to be called gtide or gtef, do not worry on whether we should use ABI bumps and make it parallel installable, do not worry about porting gedit plugins, do not worry about porting gedit at all and do not worry about forking gedit under the name gnotepad.

Just try to factor out the code you want to factor out and once we have a better idea of what it contains we can discuss about the next steps. Once you have a prototype, my suggestion would be: 1) try to make a proof of concept gnotepad (not a gedit fork, just a proof of concept mininal editor that uses the lib) 2) try to port the gedit core (no plugins) 3) try to port some other app (latexila, csvedit etc).

Once that is done we will have more clear ideas on how to move forward.
