So I have the notepad app working sufficiently today for thinking about the next steps in its expansion beyond some simple idiot proofing of the git handling. It should be very easy to add more views, and a view handler for abstract views of data processing of the text which is in the main view.
The stylesheet needs work, but it’s still a matter of following the default themes (at least on Linux), and then that should be fine. The mimetype handling perhaps needs some alteration, as .v files also seem to be text.
Now it’s on to making the view list work so as to generate alternate computed views from the input notepad. And yes a blank view is available but accessed via when saved state is changed and sets available calculations.
