Copy As HTML JDeveloper Extension
While reading an entry in Duncan Mills blog, I saw that he was interested in a JDeveloper extension that would make it easier for him to cut and paste code from JDeveloper into his blog. Although my main blog isn't intended for technical readers, I could see how this would be useful, so I've put together an extension that will hopefully make life a little easier for Duncan (and others).
The extension, once installed through the Help -> Check for Updates... menu option, provides a preference page for the user to specify the format of the HTML produced:
An Edit menu option is available, once text is selected within the editor, that will format the selected text based upon your preference and place it in the clipboard:
You can then paste this content into your editor of choice, or directly into a blog entry etc.
and its appearance within your preferred browser should be similar to that within the JDeveloper editor.
The source code for this extension can now be accessed via http://code.google.com/p/jdev-copyashtml/.
