emacs keybindings for Padre [Nov. 17th, 2008|10:06 pm]

I've been meaning to play with Padre (An Editor/IDE written in Perl) as it has perl extensions and therefore I can do with it, what lisp gurus can do with emacs, without the use of mind-altering drugs or lambda calculus.

This evening, in the space of 90 minutes I was able to add some very basic emacs keybindings, only a handful, and some of them work, while some still have their original bindings, despite using "$self->CmdKeyClear(ord('w'),Wx::wxMOD_ALT());" which should unbind them. Bah.

Anyway, that's enough for now, but it has encouraged me to hack on it some more when I get the chance and to start integrating autodia based tools for generating and creating documentation and code at the click of a mouse.

You need to hack Padre itself to call setup_emacs_mode - look for vi_mode in v0.17 and change vi to emacs.
