Coding Period (May 27 - Aug 19)

Week 1 (May 27 - June 2)

May 27

Discussed about possibility and various method of integration of Simple and QScintilla Editor with multi-tab editor.

May 28

Implemented the code for integration of pre-available editor features with multi tab. There are some issues that need to be handled like checking the undo state, highlighting of error in multiple files.

Removed support for legacy editor and corrected the keyboard mapping for zoom in/out. Pushed commits cfa32da and 1ad0f53 to pr #2955.

May 30

Corrected the updation of undoState and windowModified. Now these states behave correctly for multi-tab environment. Realised that stl exports and enable status of parameterWidget are not behaving correctly.

May 31

Corrected the behaviour of stl exports and enable status of parameterWidget. Running some basic tests to check the correctness of work done till now.

June 1

Discussed with mentor about behaviour of Customizer widget and animation on changing tabs. Implemented those behaviour in codebase of openscad. Pushed the commits to pr #2955

June 2

Run basic tests on gui implemented so far. Discovered that Find, Find and Replace are not behaving correctly for multi-tab.

Week 2 (June 3 - June 9)

June 3

Correcting the behaviour of Find, Find and Replace for multi-tab

June 4

Implemented the correct behaviour of Find, Find and Replace for multi-tab. Pushed commit 23129ba to pr #2955. Found a bug related to previous implementation of Find. Raised issue #2962.

June 5

Studying the openscad codebase for implementation of save features in multi-tab.

June 6

Working on implementing the open feature for multi-tab.

June 7

Removed the option for single file QScintilla Editor. Instead now multi-tab editor will not show tabs in case of single tab, effectively giving the feeling of single file QScintilla Editor. Implemented this feature in multi-tab editor. Pushed commit d594980 to pr #2955

June 8

Continuing the work to implement open feature in multi-tab.
