gedit Integration

We now have gedit integration for JS++. The gedit plugin provides full syntax highlighting support, including support for highlighting invalid keywords. The JS++ plugin for gedit is more accurate than the default JavaScript plugin that ships with gedit for highlighting JavaScript (especially for regular expression syntax highlighting).


The feature for highlighting invalid keywords is useful if you come from a background like Java and expect the exact same syntax and aren’t quite aware of the subtle differences. For instance, class inheritance in JS++ uses a syntax similar to C++ and C#:

class Foo : Bar {}

If you accidentally use extends, you’ll be notified immediately:

gedit error

The gedit plugin will be distributed with the next version of JS++. If you want to download the gedit plugin early, you can download it from GitHub.
