2. Arbeitsablauf

2.1. Schreiben

Die Sprache ist »Englisch (USA)«.

To edit XML files, use your preferred text editor (this guide's author prefers the free editor Kate). You must set the editor for:

  • US-Englisch.

  • Rücken Sie um 2 Leerzeichen ein (die Tabulatortaste muss den Zeiger um zwei Leerzeichen verschieben).

  • Replace tabs with spaces (for compatibility with all text editors and web browsers).

  • 80 Zeichen pro Zeile.

  • Automatische Rechtschreibprüfung mit »Englisch (USA)« als Standardsprache.

Source files are written in the XML language according to the DocBook DTD. DocBook specifications can be found at https://tdg.docbook.org/tdg/4.5/docbook.html.

Don't be afraid. We don't use all these items and you will learn XML progressively reading existing XML files. For new files, please use the templates you can find in the gimp-help/docs/templates folder.

[Anmerkung] Anmerkung

If you write a new file, you must add it in the src/gimp.xml file, or in the XML file that calls it (for example, the src/menus/edit.xml file calls undo.xml, redo.xml, fade.xml, and so on).
