Burton Radons has included dedit with his dig library. If I recall
correctly, someone integrated D in Visual C++, but that's everything I can
remember. Once I made a configuration file for jEdit, but it was quite a
while ago, and I haven't updated it. Someone else also made a file for
another editor, but I don't remember exactly which editor was.
But I think that what we most use are notepad-like programs (unless someone
has something else).

You can post it to the D Wiki's editor page at http://dlanguage.netunify.com/38. On that page, click the "Files" link at the top to see where to upload the file, then you can link to it on the wiki page like Burton did with the other syntax configurations. Dan

Personally, I use Jens' File Editor (JFE) on Windows. (http://home.t-online.de/home/Jens.Altmann/jfe_eng.htm) It has customizable syntax highlighting and find/replace -- pretty standard stuff. I came up with my own settings file for D. Of course, there's a large number of good code syntax editors out there (CodeGenie, SynEdit, etc.). I like JFE because I've found it pretty light-weight. I attached the syntax file I made for JFE for an example. (I haven't done much with Linux yet, so I wouldn't know which ones are the good ones.) Justin

I've started a page on the D Wiki (http://dlanguage.netunify.com/38) for handling this recurring, developing topic. I'd appreciate being sent configuration files (to loth users.sourceforge.net) and a description of how to install them so that I can put them in there.

netunify.com seems to be painfully slow to access. Is this a temporary problem, or perhaps we should find a faster site?

I could set up the wiki on a different host fairly easily. Netunify.com does seem a bit slow, and it is a completely free site. If anyone else has a place to host the wiki that is fast, permanent, and can do CGI or virtually any other server side execution just say the word and I'll migrate it on over. We could derive some side benefits from a new wiki system; like having real links (rather than dlanguage.netunify.com/<number>) and customizable wiki editting to do things like automatic source code formatting to html. I originally started to set up the wiki at the "SeedWiki", here at http://www.seedwiki.com/page.cfm?wikiid=1710&doc=DeeLanguageDesign. However the format at that site wasn't very good. Dan

Well, I can offer a free wiki based on my ProWiki software which I have been developing since Dez 1999. I think it is quite fast (it's written in Perl and we are using high bandwidth virtual servers from VERIO and we will soon migrate to dedicated servers). It's permanant because I do wikis professionally and intend to do so for the foreseeable future. Beside providing wikis I run a number of open wiki communities as well as a host. It's not quite clear to me what "virtually any other server side execution" means, so you would have to explain...

BTW I just stumbled over this forum a few days ago. I'm programming in C since 1983 (and a few other languages since 1974) and I always felt a need for a "D" and I agree with most of Walters design decisions. It might even be interesting to tranlate the current ProWiki software (which is 10000+ lines of Perl) to D and perhaps make an Open Source version available to the public. -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

That's pretty nice. I like how it has a page preview option, and its code handling is certainly better. Some questions: - How hard would it be to implement some basic syntax coloring on the [[code] .. ] blocks? Maybe specify it with [[code:d] ... ]? - Is it easy to configure the fonts and colors? Its a personal preference of course, but I find sans serif text hard to read in large quantities, and the headers are quite large. I'll try migrating a few pages later on. Anybody else have any thoughts on the matter? Walter? Dan

It shouldn't be too hard. The coloring features are in place, I would just have to write the logic.
 - Is it easy to configure the fonts and colors?  

Yes, everything is configurable. A wiki having more design is <http://www.thetolkienwiki.org/wiki.cgi> <http://www.wikiservice.at/tolkien/wiki.cgi> Using a classic layout (without CSS, simple), the user may define his own preferred font. E. g. the German DseWiki: <http://www.wikiservice.at/dse/wiki.cgi>
 Its a personal preference of
 course, but I find sans serif text hard to read in large quantities, and the

They may be exactly specified in the CSS code or based on HTML size. -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

Sorry, I've been swamped at work. I'd be in favor of migrating over if only to get an additional person in a admin role. Its really up to Walter and the others, though. Keep the test page around and I'll try to get to testing it out soon. Dan

I've been trying crimsoneditor (free). Haven't got around to making a D syntax file, but it's entirely possible to create one. So far it seems like a very nice editor. Hopefully I can get a syntax file made up for it soon and send it in.
