Handy tips for running scripts:

  • Ctrl+Enter and Ctrl+R are both shortcut keys for "Run Script".
  • If you highight just part of the text in the input area, then Groovy runs just that text.
  • The result of a script is the the value of the last expression executed.
  • You can turn the System.out capture on and off by selecting "Capture System.out" from the "Actions" menu

Editing Files

You can open any text file, edit it, run it (as a Groovy Script) and then save it again when you are finished.

  • Select File -> Open (shortcut key ctrl+O) to open a file
  • Select File -> Save (shortcut key ctrl+S) to save a file
  • Select File -> New File (shortcut key ctrl+Q) to start again with a blank
    input area

History and results

  • You can pop-up a gui inspector on the last (non-null) result by selecting "Inspect Last" from the "Actions" menu. The inspector is a convenient way to view lists and maps.
  • The console remembers the last ten script runs. You can scroll back and forth through the history by selecting "Next" and "Previous" from the "Edit" menu. Ctrl-N and ctrl-P are convenient shortcut keys.
  • The last (non-null) result is bound to a variable named '_' (an underscore).
  • The last result (null and non-null) for every run in the history is bound into a list variable named '__' (two underscores). The result of the last run is _[-1], the result of the second to last run is ___[-2] and so forth.
