Talk:Script Editor

From K-3D

I'm not in love with writing Yet Another Text Editor. There are a few reasons to do our own script editor. First, having a "Play" button to run the script as you develop it is incrediblyl useful. Second, in the long term I hope to see most scripts embedded in the document, because they're internal (behavior) rather than external (utility scripts). So we can't assume that scripts are external files. Third, in the case of embedded scripts, we *could* store some external metadata alongside each script to specify the scripting language. That would be a "nice-to-have" instead of our magic-tokens approach to script identification, and a builtin editor can take advantage of it. If we can work-around these issues, I will be happy to get out of the script-editing business. Tshead 19:51, 20 May 2007 (MDT)
