I'm experimenting with gtkDialog shell scripts and found that I can get Geany to auto-close the XML-like tags found in a typical gtkDialog script.... if,
(1) Editor>Preferences>Editor>Completions>HTML/XML tag auto-closing is checked
(2) *.sh; is added to the end of the HTML line in /usr/share/geany/filetype_extensions.conf
(3) #!/bin/bash is NOT present at the top of the script.
It seems to be working ok, but I’m new here. Is there down-side to this? How do people normally edit shell scripts intended to be used to generate gtkDialog boxes?
Nowadays im using vim, but back on the days when I used up Geany, I set sparkup for HTML (tedious) coding.
It should work just fine for "XML needs" too...
I did a silly quick test, see the attached pic.
