6 - The Editor in Boa Constructor, Part I [ID:1043] (6/9)

in series: Introduction to Boa Constructor

video tutorial by cmpython, added 02/09

(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

The Editor has tons of interesting features, both for code editing and generally manipulating your wxPython projects. I've broken the videos into two parts. This is part I, in which I mainly discuss the code editing features (the IDE aspect of Boa Constructor), such as code folding, cut/copy/paste, code transformation, code completion, call tips, context help, browse to, indent/dedent, and comment/uncomment.

Although I did not mention it in the video, of course the source code in Boa uses syntax highlighting.

Someone took the time to make a Boa Constructor screencast tutorial.

This application had been lying installed in my computer for the last four years or more. I wan't able to make headway with the tutorial that came with it.


The only thing that i want to add is PLEASE KEEP ADDING MORE when ever you get the time. Boa constructor is the only open source IDE that we have. I don't think I have found any other one like it.

By the way 4010080.flv is missing.

Thank you very much. You made it very good.

Thanks for the comment. I will keep it in mind for future beginner's videos. In the meantime, I suggest pausing the video from time to time to help digest the ideas presented, or "rewinding" as needed.

Good tutorial, bat you must go more slowly for beginners as me

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for cmpython
