My tool isn't meant to be serious, it's not even an editor/builder, it's a generator. (Although, it has helped a few people)
How I decided to start it:
Tons of people say GUIs are hard to make. Many people, myself included, find them pretty easy (the docs explain well and many examples). My very first script was gui with a listview. Learned 90% of it myself (garry and probably someone else helped).

So I decided to make this after a flood of "guis are hard. do it for me" things on IRC. 1-click generated GUIs with vVars, gLabels and their associated labels. With relative positioning (many people complain aligning controls is hard since they need exact x/y/w/h, yet ahk has all these auto-align features) and docs explaining the basics.
Another common issue is named GUIs. This has been a MAJOR issue since gui,new was added. Nobody understands it. most of the time I tell them to remove that 1 line and it works. This uses the proper/best/old (IMO) naming method.

So it's a trolly educational script. "Buildeer" to irritate people over the 'typo', "Deluxe" to lure people in. 1-click guis with no effort for the lazy and/or people who cannot comprehend the (IMO) good docs. Speak to further nail it into their heads. Center justified code for lols. The docs are full of fun comments too.

The code could be much smaller, I had plans to use some array stuff to let me easily track back and find controls of X type and generate code based off of it. But once it went 5D, it got too messy, decided not to. Now it only has a really simple code sample gen system (as of 1.3).
rawr. fear me.

Also, people hate working together :P
Whose ideas to add? how to add them? what code style? "I don't like your idea, mine is better". "I don't get what you mean". "that could be done 14x better". etc.
Ask for help/ideas/feedback, sure. But I'm no team player :D (when it comes to co-op coding).

Which reminds me of a minor peeve... if things are stored with tab spacing different from that used by default in the editor I happen to be using, it can mess up the formatting badly. Especially for things arranged in neat columns.

Which in turn makes me want to de-tab anything with such columns before posting, and wish that others would also.

Which all makes me think spaces should be the default for repository storage, so things are more likely to look the way intended

But I much prefer tabs when actually editing something.

How do others deal with this? Am I missing some simple trick or technique? Am I the only one bothered?

I'm thinking of writing some simple commands to replace tabs with spaces and vice versa... probably not original, but also probably quicker to code than to find.

github is annoying and too much extra work.
but it still doesn't affect the issues like:
Whose ideas to add? how to add them? what code style? "I don't like your idea, mine is better". "I don't get what you mean". "that could be done 14x better". etc.

it just makes it easier to combine peoples changes/additions, if the master decides to do so. aswell as discuss stuff (but irc/forums are still better for that).

i don't think so... :b
I used to use quite a lot...
now i just manually make them, or what i do is... i use it for making the most of the gui (more or less) then I manually fine tune it...

Game Prototype Development: Card Battle RPG - developing a prototype game in GML (gamemaker language).

This is probably my favorite Youtube creator. I especially like his Dark Souls videos (ex: Let's Play Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 (ENB)), which is mostly why I know about him. But this most recent series is a bit of a departure from his usual stuff and looks like it is going to be very good.
