Considering that most of the Portable Apps application suites use NSIS to compile the portable application wrapper, would it make sense to make HM NIS Edit portable...

I just discovered that SciTE does have NSIS syntax highlighting abilities, but I'm having troubles enabling them.
Just use Notepad
Or use PSPad and make your own syntax highlighting thing
"If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate."
I use eclipse with the NSIS plugin! Try it it great, big though.
But is Eclipse portable?
Yes, it comes in one nicely contained zip, you do however need an install of Java on the PC. I could be wrong (I havent checked very much) but I think is fine for portability. I'm sure there was a thread on it once even.
Developer Profile Sync & PortaLog
Look for user highliter NullSoft
Thanks a lot, I figured it out. I also enabled compiling abilities with the syntax highlighting....
I made a NSIS page about PSPad which contains the steps I took for the integration:
There's a problem with relative paths to makesnsis.exe for the compiler properties.... Does anyone know how to fix this?
Notepad++ has NSIS syntax highlighting built in. Open up the file in Notepad++ and everything is working fine with it.

Portable Software: Just the beginning.
I use Notepad++ as well. Its lightweight, and higlights syntax for not just NSIS but many other languages as well.
The thing is that Notepad++ doesn't have compiling support like PSPad has. Directly from PSPad you can compile the file your currently editing. To enable compiler support with PSPad, check this out. See it in action (notice the log window).
That looks cool, but i dont need a compiler at every computer i go to, so i dont think i'll switch. But that does look like it could come in handy.
One thing I run into again and again with pspad is the inability of recorded macros to use the find/find again commands. I just downloaded Notepad++ and that was the first thing I checked for. I'm happ to report that find in macros work fine.
it is possible to use Autohotkey to "integrate" macro-functionality (and much more) into nearly every software.
