Summary0002101: Improve the Scripter console
DescriptionI'm rewritting the scripter console. I know that the console is only for quick pythoning by is's very annoying to me.
It'll have Tora/Kate/... layout with some features - run only selection, save, open, etc...
It looks it'll be simpler and smaller than the old one!

I've tried out the new console. It should turn out pretty cool, and a lot easier to use. I *love* the syntax highlighting (wonder if we can add auto-indent and tab->space conversion, too?). In my view right now it does need some more work. Specificially:

- F9 is used by the system on Mac OS X. It's also a bit of a pain to reach. A different key might be better.

- There needs to be the option to run the command in the window and clear it for the next command, while printing the command and its output to the log window like:

>>> command

(much like the interactive console). I personally find it really hard to just type a series of commands with the new console, and that would solve the issue.

Control-return and the keypad enter key would be two keys that would be good to bind to this. "run" and "run and clear" buttons would also rock (and I'll add a QTimer driven "stop" button for runaway scripts when I get the chance, too).

- If there is more than one command in the console, only the first one gets run. That's pretty confusing.

- Need the option of keeping the log back x lines instead of clearing it with every command.

I'll have a go at these suggestions myself if I get the chance. In the mean time I thought I'd document them here, and see what you thought about them.

ad auto-indenting/space conversion: it's easy (I mean I think it's easy ;))

ad F9: This is a habbit I have from "interactive consoles" of the Tora or SQLnavigator. I remember that some borland IDE had it too. But to change it is only one word replacement - any suggestions?

ad >>> output: Personally I'm using the console for debugging and ad hoc changing some frames so I'm finding not clearig commands wery useful. Yes, "run and clear" should solve this issue.

ad more commands execution: this is a bug. I''l fix it asap.

ad log history: will think about it. It needs some "usability study" ;)

so - I'll continue with it today or tomorrow then I let you know.
