You need an editor with syntax highlighting.

Let me know thx Josh
thanks lj, getting a little more familiar with git is definitely on my radar. conceptually it makes perfect sense, but from the little poking around i've done with it, i need to get a little smarter for sure

totally agree with you there. on the windows side, i always use notepad++, but i haven't found a good equivalent on ubuntu yet. i'm using kate(?), or whatever the default editor is that comes with the KDE desktop. it serves it purpose, but it doesn't seem that robust. i have to keep digging around

You might like "geany" with this addition: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2607485

Many Linux/Unix pros use vim or emacs, which are as powerful as they are hard to learn.

Thanks, I'll check that one out too. I put Sublime 3 on this morning, it's a step up for sure and i don't think the learning curve on it is too step

Sublime looks nice, but I'm not going to pay for a text editor.

and after getting crombi to boot on external, i swapped sd cards and my build of CM11 actually booted! now the real learning process begins as i figure out how to customize it.

Thanks again to both you and @_that, you guys are the best
I will tell you after 8 months of mess about with this stuff, I too am still in the learning phase, I have a feeling it will never end

The learning that is LOL

Thx Josh
