Run shell scripts in gedit

Running scripts in gedit with the plugin external tools.

With the plugin External Tools you can comfortably run the script while you write it in gedit. After installing the plugin, go to Tools > Manage External Tools and create your own entrys and keyboard shortcuts.

For running a shell script I simply added:

#!/bin/bash
/bin/bash

and chose the Current Document as input. You’ll see the output in the bottom panel (Ctrl+F9).

For running an R script you simply add

#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/R --no-save

and chose the Current Document as input. The output is as well shown in the bottom panel.
