Like a good deal of work.
- Adding a menu, and a form in a new package are trivial.
- Storing your settings
- Make an encrypted connection
- The main bit of work:
SourceEditorInteface allows you to be notified of changes. You need:
-- text changes (not just keypress). You may need to add a self
written plugin to synedit to get senrEditAction (not sure, there may be
-- change of caret and selection. Those are in the StatusChange event
When a change occurs you need to send it.
Textchanges must be sent with some context, so they can be rejected if
the line was change on the remote (rejection then needs to be handled
locally, or merge to be performed)
For selection you can write a SynEditMarkup that shows the selection of
the other person.
The Markup can also create an additional caret object, to show the other
On top the markup can keep a list of remote changes and highlight them.
Then you want to add handling if the active editor changes on either
side, and what that should do on the remote.
Same for new/closed editors.
Note this is text only.
I don't know how to deal with the form designer.
