ID: 25734, Readme Project Expert

by Liz Kimber Email: Anonymous

Nearly all projects come with a readme file, but how many get read? Now if your project has one defined, this expert will open it for you, you can use it to remind you of things to do, dependancies or just to remind you what you last did..

The readme expert was formed after a large amount of projects and beginning to go code blind, the number of projects I opened and had no idea what to look for, and then went off to read the readme file.

Now all your projects can have it auto open the readme file each time you open the project. With current file extensions supported of rtf, doc, htm, html and txt, simple changes will allow you to open other file extensions.

You could use it just to open a file about what the project does, or what dependancies it uses. As a lone developer you could use it as a things to do list or to remind you of the project dependancies, or anything that takes your fancy.

All you need to add is a line such as
{%readme 'readme.txt'}

I hope you find it as helpful as I do and in case you're just interested in how I did it, the full source is included. You are welcome to make changes to suit your needs, all I ask is you keep my name as original author.
