Portable NSIS Editor

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...

SciTE

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

Yes, it comes in one nicely

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.

Found It

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:

  1. In the menu, select Settings -> Highlighter Settings.
  2. Select a free "" item.
  3. Under "User Highlighters", select Nullsoft Install System.
  4. In the "Compiler" tab, set the compiler property to makensis.exe in the NSIS directory (you can browse for it).
  5. Set the Parameters property to "%File%", with the quotes.
  6. Check on Save All Files Before Compilation.
  7. Check on Capture Program Output Window.
  8. Check on Hide Output Window.
  9. In LOG Parser, enter the following: Error in script "%F" on line %L*
  10. Hit OK.
  11. Now beable to open *.nsi files and see the NSIS syntax highlighting. You can also hit compile (CTRL-F9) and it will compile the application from PSPad itself, displaying the output in the Log window. You can double click on errors to be taken to the error's line number.

There's a problem with relative paths to makesnsis.exe for the compiler properties.... Does anyone know how to fix this?

Notepad++

Notepad++ has NSIS syntax highlighting built in. Open up the file in Notepad++ and everything is working fine with it.

Ditto

I use Notepad++ as well. Its lightweight, and higlights syntax for not just NSIS but many other languages as well.

Compiling Support

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).

Nice,

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.

limits in macros

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.

Autohotkey as Macro-Upgrade (and more)

Hi,

it is possible to use Autohotkey to "integrate" macro-functionality (and much more) into nearly every software.
