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
- Color your code manually
- Use any fonts
- Use any text size
- Use any word processor
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!
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
