To keep an overview of what has been done for the New Map Editor, I decided to extract features/ideas from this other post: #2805 and split them in several issues.

  • an embedded .yaml file viewer (and editor ?) #2438
  • there could also be an embedded web browser to load documentation from the OpenRA wiki

New Map Editor : summary of ideas #2805

1 of 12 tasks complete

Mailaender commented Mar 23, 2013

We also ship a HTML file compiled from MarkDown syntax since #2808. I suggest to load that one because it is about the traits of the current release you are currently on, not the very latest playtest.

The trait information is sweet, should be included yes. The most wanted thing here is one that can help finding bad tabbing. If its too long tabbed, or just one space wrong, I really hope this editor could help us fix that. Then we do not need to get other editors working not correctly...


Mailaender commented Mar 23, 2013

Basic syntax and tab/space high-lighting should be mandatory indeed
This is a screenshot from I use.

One might argue that you can already use every programmers editor or even Wordpad on Windows (as our tutorial currently suggests), but it seems to be troublesome to set things up for Joe Average #2310.

I might go with RTF converted from Markdown with pandoc and display that across platforms as in-line help. HTML won't work because libgluezilla for Mono is outdated, unmaintained and broken. This however depends on #2862 to get resolved first.


Mailaender commented Apr 9, 2013 even has a Markdown viewer widget.

Closing because of the future ingame co-op map editor (#3377).
