SciTE-WOWInterface  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.8
by: Cladhaire [More]
This is a re-package of the popular ScITE editor (based on the scintilla editing component). You can find more information about SciTE at http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html. Some of the customization is from the package at http://gisdeveloper.tripod.com/scite.html , but those just amount to some configuration files that have been altered. 've adjusted some of the preferences and added the bulk of the WoW API with prototypes and descriptions as pop-up calltips (you can see a few examples in the attached screenshots).

One thing you will want to adjust is the window placement and size. Unfortunately SciTE does not save window positions (it was originally designed for GTK+, where the window manager saves the position). You can do this by opening the global properties file:

Open SciTE
Select the Options Menu
Select "Open Global Options File"

You'll want to edit the following options (0,0 is in the top left of the screen)
  • position.left
  • position.top
  • position.height
  • position.width

CHANGELOG
=================================
* Re-compiled lua, luac and bitlib so they should all work and operate together with no license restrictions
* Added the bitlib functions to the lua calltips
* Re-packaged the entire distribution from scratch to be a bit more efficient and easier to make quick packages
* Updated SciTE to version 1.70 (the latest version)
* Compile action will compile to FileName.luc
* Build action will do a no-output compile testing for errors
* Go action will execute the LUA using the interpreter

Something I just noticed. The original lua.exe module is 197K in size. The lua5.1.exe module that came from lua5_1_1_Win32_bin.zip is only 20K.

Recap of actions:

Before I started doing anything the bin folder had these files;
bitlib.dll
lua.exe
luac.exe

I download and unzipped lua5_1_1_Win32_bin.zip which had these files;
bin2c5.1.exe
lua5.1.exe
lua5.1.dll
luac5.1.exe

I deleted the original lua.exe and luac.exe files from the bin folder, renamed the lua5.1.exe and luac5.1.exe to lua.exe and luac.exe and moved them into the bin folder. I moved the lua5.1.dll file into the bin folder without renaming it.

The bin folder now has in it;
lua5.1.dll
lua.exe
luac.exe
bitlib.dll

The error messages when doing a Tools/Go were:

>bin\lua.exe -l "C:\SciTE\lib\wow.lua" "MyTest.lua"
bin\lua.exe: module 'C:\SciTE\lib\wow.lua' not found:
no field package.preload['C:\SciTE\lib\wow.lua']
no file '.\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua.lua'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\lua\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua.lua'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\lua\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua\init.lua'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua.lua'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua\init.lua'
no file '.\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua.dll'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\C:\SciTE\lib\wow\lua.dll'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\loadall.dll'
no file '.\C:\SciTE\lib\wow.dll'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\C:\SciTE\lib\wow.dll'
no file 'C:\SciTE\bin\loadall.dll'
>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.234

I hope this helps you.

What error message, out of curiosity? Its hard for me to maintain this software now that I no longer have access to a windows machine.

What and where do I put them and do I have to rename them?
Take the .dll and put it in the bin directory as is.
Take the lua5.1 and rename it to lua.exe in that same directroy
Take the luac5.1 and rename it to luac.exe in the bin directory.

That should work.

I went to http://luabinaries.luaforge.net/download.html and selected lua5_1_3_Win32_bin.zip. After unzipping I copied lua5.1 and luac5.1 into the bin folder and it now works. Thanks for the help!

edit: Ooops, another problem. I will look into it more. I obviously don't understand all this PC stuff.

Hrm.. I would suggest downloading the new Lua binaries.. i may not have updated them to 5.1 when it came out. You can find these at LuaBinaries, or via cogwheel's Lua511wow distribution on sourceforge.

SciTE that is packaged here is Lua 5.1. There would be another issue. Can you post the code on pastey.net or something so we can look?

You just need to add the wow.api file, and then load it in the Lua properties file. It's just a matter of getting that file, which is out of date, and I no longer have an easy way to access.

I only recommend Lua version 5.1.1 compiled for this specific purpose:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...a5.1.1WoW.html

You are using a different Lua package (probably the official one) if you have files with those names.

Take Lua.exe and Luac.exe from the correct package (in lua511wow-1.7.zip\lua511wow\msvc\release) and use those files to replace the 2 files with the same names which are present in the directory "SciTE-WOWInterface\bin".

If you are "zomg keylogger" worried you can compile the binaries yourself using Visual Studio (and check the source code too).

These are free tools developed for a very limited project and take a little bit of effort to work with rather than your copies of VS.net and Eclipse which have a huge number of contributors. The hard work doesn't end here as SciTE doesn't provide many autocompletion features.

FWIW i'll be updating this in the next few months, and I rebuild the API documentation.
