Thumbs Up  [RELEASE] Notepad (Program) Plugin - Text Editor
Post: #1
A program plugin that will allow you to edit files directly from your XBMC.
I wrote it as a replacement for the old Notepad script, which wasn't HD ready and had some issues with the file browse dialog.

Note: Since this is the first release, make sure you keep copies of the original files and test it properly, especially if you are going to use it to modify important files like say x2config.ini, as that would prevent you from booting XBMC properly on Xbox.

Download:
Screenshots:
Changelog:
  • v1.3 (Saturday, 3 April 2010)
    - Display message if the file doesn't exist;
    - Show progress dialog (might be useful for larger files, although slower);
    - Add editor scrollbars;
    - Do not append new-line at the end of the file;
  • v1.2 (Friday, 26 February 2010):
    - Remember recent files;
    - MediaStream Redux skin;
    - Add description.xml (used by SVN Repo Installer);
  • v1.1 (Friday, 22 January 2010):
    - Rapier skin;

Yep would be great to use as an nfo viewer as well, even better if it could be called from the movie details screen Tongue

You can probably view the .nfo files as it is, but on the fonts side it's using the fonts available with the skin, no terminal or any other fixed width fonts as far as I know. If you find a skin that has them, let me know and I'll try to change it.
