New PC Project: Blitz Source Converter

Hi Guys,


I am going to take a short break from my SwosEditor in light of the Swos2020 release.. so I have decided I might look into writing a blitz source converter and maybe even a PC editor (pipedream haha).


I have not started anything yet, but I hope to have a GUI and hopefully using QT make it cross platform.


The purpose of this thread.. Ideas and suggestions to start, and also as much info about the blitz library system as possible.


I will chuck a mock gui together shortly


Edit: I am aware of this >> https://github.com/grovdata/pyblitz2 but it hasn't been updated in a while

Edit2: I am also considering an Amiga version

Post for suggestions and ideas:
  • Load BB2 source and as best as possible match the blitz tokens to libraries
  • For unrecognised "???" tokens we will give a list of all possible commands matching the token from each library, user then selects which they think it is
  • Code highlighting

Hey guys,

Apologies for the lack of updates but sadly I have had a lot of personal problems (12 year relationship ended, effectively breaking me). I will get back to this at some point. Today is literally the first day I have been on my PC since June 21st..

I'll be back in due course

Been there. Like vulture said, you'll bounce back Take your time.

I code with Blitz Basic, I use Notepad ++ on PC , save file and open it on Winuae for testing.

It would be great to have a way to male Notepad ++ save the file already on tokenized mode or, like you suggested, having some kind of IDE on PC that would that, so when I opened the file on Amiga I wouldn't waste time while it tokenizes the file. Even on Winuae with very fast CPU settings it still takes a while when the code is big.
