Re: NVDA Developer Guide: Question about how to make addons using standard NotePad
There is nothing really special about a .py file, it is just a text file with a different extension (not .txt).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The nice thing about Notepad++, is that it has auto-indentation, and re-opens last open files, and so on. But other than that, it is editing in text just like Notepad.
It might also be easier to change character encodings in Notepad++, but I haven't really explored that.
So, all of that is to say, there really is no special procedure.
You can open a notepad session, write your code, and save it with a .py extension. You will have to do your own indenting, but if you're used to writing Python that should be no problem.
Any text editor which does not wrap lines should be fine for this.
