Automatically close brackets, parens, braces, and quotes with SciTE

In this short tutorial I walk through how I configured SciTE to automatically close: brackets, parens, braces, and quotes with SciTE.

 

Here’s what you need to do to try this:1) Export these¬†lua files¬†into your SciTE home directory
2) Open your UserLuaScript.lua script and add the following lines (in this order)

--***AutoClose Begin***
dofile(props['SciteUserHome'].."/Class.lua") 
dofile(props['SciteUserHome'].."/Common.lua")
dofile(props['SciteUserHome'].."/AutoCloseBraces.lua")
  
EventClass:BeginEvents() -- Start up the events (Calls onstartup()).
-- ***AutoClose END

Then just restart SciTE and you’ll be able to have SciTE close brackets, parens, quotes on its own!
