If you use Viz Script as much as we do you'll probably find Viz Artist's script editor less than ideal. So at Idonix we developed some basic tooling to allow us to use Notepad++ in our Viz scripting workflow.
There are a number of aspects to this tooling: around Notepad++ we have a Viz Script "user defined language file" to give syntax highlighting, and use of the SourceCookifier plugin to allow easier navigation around your files. And in the Viz world we have a script plugin that allows us to transfer our scripts backwards and forwards between the Viz scene and Notepad++, and to use the KDiff tool to compare script versions. You'll also get the added advantage of being to able to use your favourite source control system (GIT in our case) to manage your scripts.
There's nothing particularly fancy or clever involved here - but we thought it useful enough to make us think it worth offering to the wider community. Enjoy!
No fancy automated installations here I'm afraid - you'll have to follow these steps:
Add the plugin to your container (you'll find it in "Built Ins... ScriptPlugins... Container Plugins"), and it will present this GUI.
Here's what it does:
