New release of fmWorkMate & fmCheckMate XSLT

Posted by Russell Watson on 13 June, 2014 at 11:25

This release of fmWorkMate has a whole bunch of new stuff including support for fm13 themes!

 

Here is a summary of the recent improvements:


2 brand new tools!

 

  • fmClipboardViewer - lets you browse the contents of your clipboard
  • fmTextDiff - compares two files using an online service - for those of us who don't use TextMate ;-)

 

fmCheckMate now supports Themes!

 

  • 4 new XSLT Transformations let you inspect, analyse and compare your themes.
  • The XSLT Chooser has been REALLY simplified:



  • With XSLTs categorized into AnalysisChange Transformation, it is MUCH easier to find and identify the transformation you need.
  • The object types are now named in plain english, and the function names are clearer (instead of CamelCase).
  • You can also create your own XSLT Library! (or someone you know who knows a little XSLT 1.0)

    • Just create a neighboring folder called "fmChekMate.YourNamespace.com", 
    • add an xsl folder to it, 
    • copy an XSLT over from fmCheckMate and 
    • rename the file using the following format:

                           {InputType}_{OutputType}_NameOfTheFunctionUsingCamelCase.xslt

      You can see the existing xslt files for examples

    • modify the XSLT // good luck ;-)
    • Save the XSLT file
    • In fmCheckMate open the XSLT Chooser and reimport the XSLT.
    • For example:

      The file: ~/Documents/fmCheckMate.mrwatson.de/xsl/XMSS_Text.List_UnusedVariables.xslt

      Would display as:    Analyse   |   Scriptstep   |   Unused variables   |   mrwatson.de

 

 

fmSyntaxColorizer has had a major overhaul, is more dynamic and now has quick-switching between palettes. Enter f: to check out the function list!


And and handfull of other small improvements:

 

  • fmTextConverter has a button to swap the Search and Replace fields
  • fmPluginMate (fmp12) displays the plugin data more clearly & has clearer menus and shortcut-keys
  • Simple Calculator has some new functions (UTF-conversion and (q:)oute function to convert an FM-calculation into a string)

 

To read about ALL the changes: please read the fmWorkMate_Changes.txt file when you download fmWorkMate


One more thing ...


All tools now have a built in online help function (at last!) - now I just have to fill out the help pages ;-)

 


Happy File-Making :-)

P.S. I've at last published my blog article "fmLogAnalyser - never miss another bug!" (from January) - Don't miss it!
