I don’t know that you should be “worried, a lot” about the Pythonscript plugin being last published in 2014. Perhaps that just means it is very stable and has few bugs in need of fixing. :-)
What does “search for a replacement” mean??
@Dave-Brotherstone is the author of the Pythonscript plugin, as well as the PluginManager plugin. He has recently been working a lot on updating the PluginManager and finding a new good site for hosting the plugins it manages. I think this work also includes heading toward a build of a 64-bit version…so he is busy, but I’m guessing that when that work is complete he will also strive to achieve a 64-bit build of Pythonscript, as well. So I think it is far from dead, even though it hasn’t been updated since 2014. Just guesses, but maybe educated guesses?
I can think of a few pieces of software that I use that haven’t had new releases since 2007-2009, so to me 2014 is relatively recent!

For me it often means that project is simply abandoned. Abandoned and not maintained for a long time, which means that:
- the amount of bugs increased exponentially since then
- new features haven’t been implemented for a long time too, whereas technologies are moving forward.
- not to mention that in most cases those projects have poor community where it’s impossible to resolve any issue.
But this is a common case and maybe Pythonscipt is another thing.
P.S. Considering that author of Plugin Manager and author of Pythonscript is a same person, and he’s been working a lot on updating the PluginManager, it is especially strange to face issues while installing PS from Manager. I was unable to do it, and not only I.
It IS rather strange that the Pythonscript plugin has trouble installing via PluginManager, given a common author, I’ll grant you that.
I don’t know the full explanation of the Pythonscript + PluginManager problems, but I haven’t let that discourage me. As you have discovered, installing Pythonscript another way works. I have been using Pythonscript deeply since my very first day of using Notepad++, and I can say I’ve found bugs, but not many. Workarounds are the mainstay of Notepad++ (power) users. Bugs exist in software. Features are lacking. These are just facts.

@Dustin-Cook BTw, the script from Dustin doesn’t work for me (as well as the first ones), it just cleans the screen with the test data. Maybe I’m doing smth wrong?

It appears Dave may be @bruderstein on this forum…maybe if he sees this he could comment on the status of Pythonscript…I’m curious about the state of even the 32-bit version as I just got bit again by the notepad.getFiles() bug. :(
That bug is detailed here: https://github.com/bruderstein/PythonScript/issues/22
I’d fix the bug in a local build as a temporary measure, but thus far I have been unable to build Pythonscript from source (okay, I haven’t worked extensively on getting it to build, but Notepad++ is an easy one to build, and I was hoping for the same from Pythonscript).
Scott, what is the error you get? In the past I compiled it a couple of times
and can’t remember that there was some trouble doing it.
Since we’re already way off topic, can we take a discussion of building Pythonscript offline to email? If an offline discussion turns up something really interesting, I can post back here (under a new topic) to share with the Community.

No problem : I’ve just sent your e-mail address to Scott !
Good Python discussions, with Scott ;-)
@guy038 - Thank you very much.
