Adventurer – an open source Scott Adams Adventure International Game interpreter written in C#

Adventurer is rather neat GitHub project and is a A C# Intrepreter for Scott Adams adventure games encoded in the ScottFree format and you can find it here:

https://github.com/TheTextAdventurer/Adventurer

Currently, it doesn't support Brian Howarth's mysterious advenures (according to the README.MD) but has plans to do so.

Notepad++ Emmet jQuery Template

Here's a little addition I've made for the excellent Notepad++ plugin Emmet. It's a shortcut that creates a HTML5 template with a link to jQuery "jquery-2.1.3.min.js" and a "$(document).ready" function, as shown below.

emmet

It's straightforwards to do, and requires three additions to Emmet's "snippets.json" file, that is located in the Notepad++ direction "\plugins\EmmetNPP\emmet\".

Addition 1, to?the section "snippets", a child of "html":

"jqdocready": "\\$(document).ready(function() {\n\n});"

Additions 2 and 3, to?the section "abbreviations", a child of "html":

"docjq2":"html>(head>meta[charset=UTF-8]+title{${1:Document}}+script[src=http://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.3.min.js]+script[type=text/javascript]>jqdocready)+body",

"html:5jq2":"!!!+docjq2[lang=${lang}]",

In situ, the three additions look like this:

emmet1

emmet2

 

Obviously, make changes at your own risk, but if done correctly, this will work. Cheers m'dears,

Simple C# colour picker

Here's a simple C# colour picker I've created. It's derived from a combobox with a simple override on the OnDrawItem() method. It looks like this:

ColourPicker

And you can find it over on my GitHub page.

This contains no error handling, and is simple as it can be, so use it and your own peril. It's not going to make your computer explode, but you know what I mean. Any problems, feed etc drop me a line.
