[edit] Welcome

Hi Griba, and welcome; I'm Deco, the site creator. I see that you're someone with extensive experience, particularly in Javascript, which is great. I hope you'll contribute some programs in some of your areas of expertise. I hope you're not offended that I moved your article with the Javascript links - they look like good links but I want to reserve the main article space for programs only (they could be added to a program which they are relevant to though). If you're not sure what to write programs for, try taking a look at LiteratePrograms:Categories_requiring_expansion, or write some of the classic Javascript examples that aren't so common in other programming languages, like basic cookie stuff and tricks with right-click and alert boxes. If you have any questions, please just ask me or visit the public forum. Welcome again! Deco 04:31, 5 April 2006 (PDT)

[edit] Userboxes

Hope you don't mind, but I've edited your userpage to add a bunch of userboxes for the various languages you are familiar with. This automatically adds you to the appropriate categories as well. --Allan McInnes (talk) 18:51, 5 April 2006 (PDT)

Thanks for it. Gabriel.

[edit] You're an admin

Hi Gabriel. I went ahead and made you an admin, as you've done some good work and I think you seem trustworthy. This will allow you to protect and delete pages, ban users, and other handy things like that. Please ask if you have any questions. Deco 14:48, 30 May 2006 (PDT)

Congratulations! --Allan McInnes (talk) 16:47, 30 May 2006 (PDT)
Thanks for your confidence. I have been trying to bring code on new languages or some ideas on others in order to show the tools I have found to do a better job. My theory background is not high so you may have to correct my work if I am not precise enough. Thank you again.
Don't worry about your theory background - I want LP to be accessible to the average programmer, so the more real-world developers we have the better. I'll keep an eye out though. Deco 13:41, 31 May 2006 (PDT)
  • One thing I would like to do is to add some syntax highlighting to the new languages (Scala to begin). I have seen the syntax page. I can do the regexp stuff (I have done syntax highlighting for the JEdit editor) although with Scala is not that easy because you can have XML literals within the code. Is there a syntax highlighting help or guidelines page? Is there a protocol to follow to add highlighting, or should I simply edit the syntax page and insert the xml lines for the new language? (If this latter I will check the xml correctness with the Jedit editor before adding anything). G. Riba 22:20, 31 May 2006 (CET)
    • There's a little info on the talk page of that page, but that's it. You might be able to create it as a child of the rule set for XML using "<language name="scala" inherit="xml">", or if that doesn't work, you might be able to just reuse the rules in the XML section.

    • The instructions for adding synatx highlighting are, as you've noticed, pretty sparse. Your best bet is probably to take a look at how some of the other language highlighting definitions have been done, and replicate with suitable adjustmetns for the new language. At least, that's the approach that's worked for me so far. --Allan McInnes (talk) 13:56, 31 May 2006 (PDT)
