Magicle

Magicle is the Magic Line Editor and it is here to provide in a somewhat magical approach of editing text (in your favorite text-editor).

You can automatically edit certain lines based on context. The editing actions are defined in functions and the action to perform is selected by matching with a prioritized list of regexp rules, one for each function. Magicle can perform various tasks, but is only executed with a single (key)command.

Press Enter to edit

Because you can easily define your own rules and functions (in any programming language (coming soon)), magicle allows you to do many cool things, like:

  • Running any of the default build-in tasks:
    • Bumping the year in copyright headers
    • Create reStructuredText headers
    • Wrap lines to a miximum length
  • Creating powerful macros

  • Creating templates

  • Creating snippets

Roadmap

Magicle is in very early stages of development right now. These are the things that most probably will be added soon.

Initial release:

  • Add documentation
  • Add more build-in functions

Later releases:

  • Add a "plugin" system where a Magicle function can be defined as any (prefixed) executable (script) in the PATH as long as it can return exit codes. This allows for a user to extend the functions list very comfortably.
  • Add a configfile to define the functions regexp match list
