How to compile¶
To compile NppSnippets you can use Visual Studio. Project files for VS2019 are provided and actively used. The free Visual Studio Community gets the job done. Obviously the paid versions work as well. To compile with another versions of Visual Studio you can convert an existing project file.
There is also a MinGW-w64 makefile, using their 64-bit compilers. It can be used from Cygwin, MSYS2 and various Linux distributions including WSL. It compiles, but the resulting dll is not recognized by Notepad++.
Building the documentation¶
To build on Windows you need Python Sphinx. When using Cygwin you can install
make html in the
docs directory to generate the documentation.
Other forms of output are not used, but might work.
If you want the local docs the look like Read The Docs:
- Clone the Sphinx RTD Theme.
- Create a directory named
- There you need to create a symlink to the
sphinx_rtd_themesubdirectory in the cloned repo.
