WordIDE

Have you ever wondered: How would it feel like to write code in a word processor? Me neither. But after monthsminutes of planning, I present to you (drum rolls)… WordIDE!

Write your code in any word processor, and WordIDE will convert it to plain text, so that your dumb compiler understands it. It’s as simple as

$ wide compile test.odt

Advantages

  • Color your code manually
  • Use any fonts
  • Use any text size
  • Use any word processor

Disadvantages

  • None

Note that this was a weekend project, so the code is… less than perfect. Still, it does the job. I plan on making it better in the future, and if you feel like fixing it yourself, submit a pull request!

Building

Just make sure you have a Go compiler installed, then run make. If you don’t have make installed, you can also do it with go build, but make sure to supply another output binary with -o binary, because the default one conflicts with the package name wordide.
