    Info WordBuilder 1.0

    Ok, I think I'm ready to release 1.0 of WordBuilder.

    Fixes since 0.9:

    • Drop command now works, dropping from the end of the word.
    • Translate command now supports begin and end markers:
      Code:
      Translate {
        # a a => a
        a a # => a
      }
      Only removes double a's at the beginning and end of the word.
    • The generate dialog now supports any number of starting rules.
    • The new Column directive allows you to show marks and branches as columns in the list view.
      Code:
      Column Title1 Branch1
      Column Title2 !Mark1
      Column Title3 Branch1.!Mark2
    • The new Leave command takes tokens off the word until the requested number of tokens are left.
      Code:
      Leave 2
    • WordBuilder now has an icon. Anyone want to make a better one?
    • The installer now asks where to install. Uninstall 0.9 before installing the new one.
    • New example project at http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/prach_eboch.wordo
    • Detail view now shows details for all selected words as preview of what you'll copy with Copy details to clipboard.


    Download at http://whee.dk/wordbuilder/WordBuilder.msi - and please, please give me some feedback?

    Thank you!

    Of course, I'm curious as to what you're doing with it - and what you'd like to be able to do

    For line 71, 72 and 73 of prach_eboch.wordo the command 'column' was not recognized.

    I'm sorry, this is because of a bad update. Entirely my fault.

    I just tested a bit, and I was not able to upgrade the 0.9 to 1.0 using the installer. I could uninstall and then install a new one, though. I'm rather new at making installers, so I must've done something wrong there.

    I've made a new installer, and updated the version number to reflect the added icons.
    Could you try that one, see if it updates the app better? You should see a change in icon to the main application, and prach_eboch.wordo should work.

    I'm on it. Having great fun with this little gem so far.

    EDIT: Got it. Looking good. Would it be possible to put up a more complete list of commands with their expected effects?

    Would love to see what you're getting out of it (and how you're getting it)

    WordBuilder 0.9: Release often, release early holds a brief description of commands in 0.9 - combined with the first post in this thread, you have a complete list of commands.

    I'm trying to write some documentation on http://whee.dk/?page_id=65 as well, and I hope to expand that enough to call it a manual eventually. What format would you prefer? Cheat sheet or more in-depth one-page-per-command?

    Well, I've updated the documentation quite a bit, and added a forum to my site, so questions and such about Wordbuilder can go there.

    I'll try to make a help file for the application. Some syntax highlighting and such (auto-complete) would be useful too, I guess.

    Any opinions? Results and/or .wordo files you can share?

    I need to snag me a copy of this and give it a test-drive. I'm curious if it might be a better word generator for helping me in creating languages... especially once I've created all the rules for how nounds, verbs, etc. are structured. I look forward to test-driving.
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.
