Hi, I was looking at DroidEdit which can provide syntax highlighting for many different types of code, sadly not GML. I was wondering if there is an editor available on android which knows GML?

 

Would be cool to be able to write short pieces of code on the move. I could do it without syntax highlighting I suppose, but would be really cool to have something like DroidEdit which works with GML.

Thanks.

Most code editors allow you to add custom language files in the form of an XML file. If DroidEdit supports it, you can use the Gamemaker Studio Language File found here:https://dl.dropboxus...npp-gml-gms.xml

 

I imported it into Notepad++ on the PC. Looking at DroidEdit reviews, it looks like it supports multiple languages but I've never used it so this is as far as I'm able to help.

Ok thanks for the reply!

 

If DroidEdit doesn't support custom languages, I'm sure I will be able to find one that does!

Thanks again!

 

EDIT: Seems that DroidEdit does not support custom syntax using an XML, worse than that, there doesn't seem to be any android code editors which do!

 

Seems a shame, I'm sure if YoYo made an external android code editor it would be well recieved and found useful by lots of people, not least me!

I think it's been suggested before and denied. I think it went along the lines of they don't have the time and resources to make one. Or they just don't care to.

Hopefully things like Undertale will get GameMaker the exposure it needs to get to the point where YoYo will consider it again. Although I don't use Android, I imagine they would have an iOS port too.
