CodeAssistor - version 8 final released

It's taken me like 8 months, but the codeassistor now has tabs.

Why did it take me so long, because things are crazy at work (good crazy, QNX is awesome to work with).

CodeAssistor on Windows - Tab version now beta

Ok, so a few more tweaks and we have a feature complete tabbed editor:) yay

Two features you'll notice I left out of the windows version
1) tear out a tab into a new window
2) tear a tab and place it in an already existing window

These two things are more effort than they are worth, so I wont be implementing them any time soon.

Get your binary here and let the bughunt begin!

Tabbing on windows, damn that was a lot of work :(

I've been working, since my last post, on getting some sort of tabbing for CodeAssistor on windows... my god was it a lot of work, and my codebase has become absolutely spaghetti :( oh well.

I got something that works... Alpha quality, as there are many more interactions that I simply cannot test yet, but anyways, if you want to give it a spin


And dont forget the Mac-Beta quality (I haven't found any serious bugs from regular usage yet)

OMG Seriously? Yes Seriously

If any of you have done mac programming, you've probably pondered this one question "how do I get tabs like firefox/safari/chrome without doing much heavy lifting"

If you haven't, heres a user exercise. Go to xcode and see what you can get done with an NSTabView... go head, I'll wait.

If you want a hint, here is what you can do.
But finally, some smart guy has come to rescue us from our misery.

Rasmus Andersson

you are my new hero.

Rasmus is the primary developer for Kod - a Mac based programmers editor. As part of Kod, he has developed a project called Chromium-Tabs, which basically gives programmers a nice - easy to use - API for creating beautiful browser like tabs (some say they look like Chrome).

So, I've promptly made a makefile so I dont have to deal with that nasty xCode IDE (yuck!), and integrated the Chromium-Tabs framework into my CodeAssistor project. Now I have a nice beautiful looking TABBED editor :)

All in all, the makefile took me 5 hours, and learing-integrating chromium tabs into codeassistor took 14/15 more.

If you want to play with the Alpha release of 0.0.8 (Mac Only so far), here you go
