Hi Bertl, Is there any good code editor that you use for writing vhdls :)
14:22
felix_
is quite happy with this tool http://vide-software.at/ it's windows-only though
14:23
vup
Emacs is good :)
14:23
felix_
there's also sigasi, which is much more expensive, and the vhdl mode of emacs, which is said be really good; haven't tried that though, because i don't get along with emacs
14:24
vup
Sigasi is free for students
14:24
vup
Atleast used to be
14:27
Bertl
apurvanandan[m]: typically vim
14:27
apurvanandan[m]
Yeah Sigasi is free. I tried it today, it didn't seem intersting to me ^^'
14:28
Bertl
similar to emacs, vim can do all the indentation and highlighting
14:30
apurvanandan[m]
I face difficulty navigating through in such large amount of code. Is vim helpful for this?
14:31
Bertl
vim has of course search functionality and similar, you can even fold code blocks, although I never use that
14:31
Bertl
i.e. you can expand and collaps portions of code
14:32
apurvanandan[m]
I will need to spend lot of time configuring vim then ^^'
14:32
vup
I mean emacs does a whole lot more than just indentation or highlighting
14:33
Bertl
yes, emacs and vim does a ton of stuff and both are very flexible
14:33

Bertl
apurvanandan[m]: you might want to look for existing setups and/or plugins/configs and try them out first
14:34
apurvanandan[m]
That means it is configuration time^^'
14:35
vup
(I meant specifically the vhdt mode, but yes)
14:36
apurvanandan[m]
Also, I havn't used Vivado 2018 till now, so is its code editor good?
14:36
Bertl
I don't know, never used it :)
14:36
apurvanandan[m]
lol, ok
14:37
vup
Imho the code editor of vivado sucks
14:38
apurvanandan[m]
As expected XD
14:38
felix_
the editor in vivado is rather horrible
14:38
vup
It doesn't even manage to do antialiasing for the text
14:39
felix_
buggy, no tab-completion and that sort of things
14:39
vup
And it doesn't get better from there
14:39
apurvanandan[m]
tch tch
14:39
Bertl
there you go, good that somebody tested it ;-)
14:40
felix_
iirc at least some time ago they had the editor licensed from some other company and so they couldn't really fix bugs themself
14:40
apurvanandan[m]
XD, yeah and saved me :)
14:40
apurvanandan[m]
Ok thanks
14:42
felix_
using an external editor/ide works well in both project and non-project mode; even when vivado runs in a vm with shared folders or in WSL and the ide on the (vm)host

vscode is also nice as editor and has plenty of plugins, or atom.io for MS haters

finally vscode appeared ^_^
16:38
aSobhy
I was feeling I'm the only one here using it
16:40
Bertl
whatever one uses (for editing code) is fine, as long as it doesn't force somebody else to use it :)
17:01
BAndiT1983
and both editors are from MS, forgot that they have acquired github
17:40
Bertl
just because AMS acquired CMOSIS, the sensors we use 'are' not 'suddenly' from AMS :)
17:45
BAndiT1983
of course, as the brand is already there and known, had same case in one of my former companies, devices still had the name of the original company (which was re-acquired several times previously) for quite some time
