Coding Color
« on: February 13, 2017, 02:00:08 am »
Just for fun:
What EditorCodeColor do you use ???

I use BLUEGREEN or NEBULA or BLUEBLUE  :D
I like to play around with colors...

In Windows it's easy to import *.xml ColorSchemes, just in case someone never tried this:
Just copy the *.xml files to "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\lazarus\userschemes"...
And if there is no "userschemes" folder then create one.
After that start or restart LAZARUS and check the dropdown menu (EDITOR: PREFERENCES). Should be visible between the default presets... (DEFAULT, DELPHI, OCEAN ...)

And yes, I like big bold fonts... this is TERMINAL Size 13... probably not the best font in the world, but I can't help myself I like the look... it looks somewhat heavy on a big monitor... :)

I just use the defaults, but with font size 9 instead of 10, and a margin width of 130 instead of the default 80 (because it's not 1983 anymore, you know.)

Good Tip... :) I just googled it's 2017, but I guess Google tricked me...

I like 80 if possible... could be useful on older Notebooks with 1280x800 or something like that...  :)

1280x800? I don't think that's a thing. Also a pixel width of 1280 could easily handle far more than a margin width of 80.

Have you tried this font http://sourcefoundry.org/hack/. It's best for coding. Never mix up O and 0 again.

@Pascal
Thanks for the tip.

In my case I can't because "o" or "O" looks totally different in comparsion to "0" and the color is different.

When code compiles but I don't really want to look at it:

Err, yeahah, I'm currently using it right now:
Code: [Select]
$ xrandr | head -n3
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1280 x 1520, maximum 32767 x 32767
LVDS1 connected 1280x800+0+720 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm
   1280x800      60.05*+
[search and insert sketch of that incredibly tall CRT here]

However, I do not use Lazaraus. My projects are quite small so vim(1), a screen(1) session and manually invoking fpc(1) as needed is sufficient for me.

[…] (because it's not 1983 anymore, you know.)
Touché.
Yours Sincerely

@DL7BJ: Thanks for the tip...
Inside Lazarus it looks weird... maybe I installed the wrong font or the font really needs AA.
