HE Lite Version
« on: April 21, 2009, 07:57:31 PM »
Because HE comes with such wonderful command line switches/options it makes sense to provide with a HE light edition/version.
The lite version would look like the Windows Notepad.
I would use that for example to invoke HE Lite to bring up a specific line and/or a letter in a sentence/code.

In this case it would be HippoEditLite.exe -i "test.txt" -l 32 , right?

You can already use HE with --workspace=viewer, this would bring HE in minimalistic layout.

Yes, but you can also skip -i. This also works:
HippoEdit.exe --workspace=viewer test.txt -l 32

I have also found a small bag. Once more +1 for line position. Would fix.

Also found a bug if I use
HippoEdit.exe --workspace=viewer d:\scripts.vbs -l +32
I get VS Debugger prompting to debug

The minimalistic is not so minimal I think. Perhaps you can create a cheaper/free breed of HE too by doing that? AptEdit has it for example. That works as a lure. Say HippoCalf?

I have already evaluated this.
The effort for maintaining two products would be 1.5 higher then for one. And what this give me or users?
Also what you want to throw away from HippoEDIT? What from your opinion is minimal?

Will come w/o the menus and panes, (HE already has the switch to turn 'em off). The effort therefore should be minimal. Also the minimalist version can stay behind the mainstream HE.

You can hide panes, toolbars and menu and saved state as bew workspace, and then call HippoEDIT with this workspace as parameter.
So there would be not difference to Lite version.
