    From Martigan@VERT to All on Wed May 15 06:56:00 2002
    hello,

    Does BAJA has a coding IDE such as wcbasic for wildcat, mde for mystic and Powerppl for pcboard. Used to run Pcboard since 1993 and i moved
    yesterday to synchronet. I discovered it is not easy to get coding in
    baja as in other bbs packages. I believe if there comes a good baja GUI releases for synchronet mods will increase heavily. I member in two modding groups called dementia and food, both released hundreds of mods but no synchronet stuff... we can make a differents..

    Hoping someone with the skills wanted to code the GUI for Baja (ide), I can help whereever possible (making the help topics or something)...

    Ok please let me know,
    Regards Martigan (COD Leader/Dementia/f00d)

    IMHO JavaScript is the future of synchronet modding... there are several editors that do syntax highlighting for .js files, and syntax tabbing.. a free one that I like is Crimson Editor... a very good text editor for multiple text files, basic syntax highlighting is there.. some other things... for some reason an older version cap'd "system" to "System" I got around this by defining var System = eval("s" + "ystem");

    Hoping someone with the skills wanted to code the GUI for Baja (ide), I can help whereever possible (making the help topics or something)...

    This isn't saying that Baja will be removed, simply that moving forward, in my opinion, javascript will become the format of choice for modders.. drop in for a visit here, the login matrix, the oneliners, the ctrl-p/ctrl-u are all in javascript.. once I get the last parts of ctrl-p done, will proceed with a completely lightbar menu set in js..

    Ok please let me know,

    :) need any modders for synchro, would be happy to participate.
    got any urls for those groups?

    I don't think the time to create one would be warranted. Javascript is probably the future of Synchronet mod'ing, and BAJA has some limitations that make it more of a legacy language.

    There is already plenty of JS editors out there, so I would start thinking about looking into doing some JS mod'ing.

    BAJA is surprisingly simple and fairly powerful, but the scope of Synchronet today has introduced a need for a more powerful language like JS.

    I'm new to JS... (but know my way around C++ pretty well, it looks similar).. what editor (free / share) do you recommend?

    Damn.. I was starting to love baja :) (save for the fact that I kept forgetting NOT to place a ; at eol :)

    I use one called ConTEXT, and it's freeware. Pretty decent and supports tons of languages with syntax highlighting. JS and C++ are very similar.

    thanks, but no thanks. i think i'll stick with baja for all of my modding needs. while i think its great and all that synchronet supports javascript, i have absolutely no interest in going there.

    Well, I've managed to do quite a bit with JS so far, that I wouldn't
    even begin to try with Baja...
