I did it! Built a simple graphical text editor in 500 lines of ANSI C. Just added the missing mouse picking stuff, will move on find/replace things next.
This is what I'll be using from now on to work on my stuff :D
@neauoire rejigged an existing charset I made last year, which was trying to make most characters fit 6x6 (except extenders and descenders).
might be a bit much though... I'll keep playing around tomorrow.
Left is outputting blurry text on OS X, I'll see if I can figure that out too.
@neauoire I think this set works well as uppercase, but it's too hard to make lowercase work with it.
I will never give up that 4 though.
@neauoire quickly testing out the speccy one, it's nice but there are a few quirky characters in there. I'll finish this off tomorrow too, might do a variant spectrum one as well.
spectrum is here:
I'll keep iterating on this one and maybe some others.
why aren't you using the ASCII ordering?
@neauoire OK I'm trying the new version. :) I had to double the zoom on both nasu and left... must be because of retina monitor
@neauoire yeah, I posted before reading the source fully. :) two comments though - what is the last brush doing? it seems to be squaring things up into either lines or blocks? and second, there's no tiling features anymore - I will probably keep using old nasu for tile sets.
@whtrbt It looks great, my only issue is that the dot(.) and perc(%) use 4px square that looks too bold, so I'll make the dot a single pixel and make the 2 circles of the % into a sort of star
@neauoire go for it!
the full stop in the spectrum font is big like that, even though the comma and semicolon aren't. same with the percentage.
@neauoire it's got lots of breathing room, it's one of my favourites as well. stay tuned for my remix. :)
@neauoire would help if it rebuilt the page before uploading it hey? try without www
@neauoire at this stage, no need - it's barely different from the spectrum. :)
I might fill in the rest of the 256 characters so you have a full ascii set though. if you decide to include that 256 version with the left source, maybe a link to my site?
@mario_afk Nothing, it's still a great editor. it's what I used to build this, but I wanted a graphical editor that wasn't terminal based. Personal challenge.
@mgrondin I have the source up but it's very incomplete at this point, gimme a few days to put the find/replace stuff in and I'll share it :)
