Some of you may have seen that Ink is actually included in OneOS, but I've had a number of requests to release it as a standalone program. So, here it is!

There hasn't really been a standard word processor for ComputerCraft yet. There's things like edit and LuaIDE, but they're more for code. I thought it'd be cool to make a program like Microsoft Word/Apple's Pages that allows for easy writing up of a document and, best of all, printing.

Features
  • Easy to use 'New Document' and 'Open Document' windows.
  • An easy to use printing feature that allows the selection of printer as well as printing multiple copies.
  • Text selection (it works just as it does in Word or Pages, simply drag)
  • Text colouring (doesn't print in colour though)
  • Cut, Copying and Pasting
  • Closing unsaved work will prompt the user if they want to save
  • And more

Installation
Simply run this on your computer, then type in 'ink' to run.

pastebin get JxzXPv03 ink


Including in your OS

If you're wanting to use Ink in your OS you're most welcome to, you don't need to ask. As long as you don't modify the code and keep the name I'm fine with it. If you do want to modify it for some reason (even for OS API integration) please PM me.

License

You are permitted to use Ink provided that:
- You do not modify the code without permission. (PM me)
- You do not rename it.

Full license:

It's about time you released this separately!

Just tested it now, yes, it does. In fact, it fits perfectly. Pages are 25 characters wide, the pocket computer screens are 26 wide, so combined with the scroll bar it fits perfectly.

*sigh* Sorry, but I don't know where to start with the bugs :wacko:

Bug 1:

Bug 2

There are some other bugs I noticed, e.g. the cursor also not blinking if you click too far right of the text etc..
The bad thing is: These bugs are not really consistent and most of the time they happen, but sometimes not.

All in all I think this is a nice program with certainly a lot of effort in it, keep up the good work :)

Yea, those sort of bugs are very hard to fix. I'll give it at shot though.

If i may be so prudent to ask, what about the possibility of themes (Ala. Firewolf) to customize the look of the program? Might be good if someone wants the colour scheme to better fit with their OS, or if they just want to switch it up a bit.

Hmmm, maybe.

Although there's not a ton to change really.

Sorry, I should've added the license earlier.

You can modify the code as long as you don't share/distribute that code. If you made a change please PM me and I'll let you know if it's ok.

If you use it on a pocket computer, the open/save menu is cut off on the left and the right.
