digitalmars.D - Just a suggestion: Integration of D in Eclipse

Hi,

I believe that to integrate the programming language D in a free development
environment like Eclipse www.eclipse.org (syntax highlighting, compile from
editor, automatic error detection, etc) can impulse a lot the use of this
language.  


For when a stable version is stable/ standard that not admit drastic changes?  

Thanks for all!

There've been efforts to do just that: http://www.dsource.org/projects/eclipseD/ Plus, there's a separate IDE project that uses DWT ( a D port of Java's SWT ) and it's likely going to become a very good development environment :) It's far from being mature, but you'll be able to get the idea: http://www.dsource.org/projects/poseidon/ -- -----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- Version: 3.1 GCS/M d-pu s+: a-->----- C+++$>++++ UL P+ L+ E--- W++ N++ o?

I also agree.  I know there has been some work to get D working in CodeBlocks (
if you haven't tried it, check it out - http://www.codeblocks.org/ )  With
something like D in such a refined (and open source) environment, it would make
a very powerful, cross platform development environment, (integrated debugging,
multiple build targets, XML syntax highlighting, code profiling, and project
templates) and make it very accesible if it was distributed in the main release.

Yeah .. there have been several attempts, including one of mine, which failed miserably (it only worked for me!). Like Tom S pointed out, there is a project on dsource http://www.dsource.org/projects/eclipseD If you feel you can help, why don't you give it a try?

There have been multiple projects to this end. I think each new one has been extending on the previous ones, but I'm not sure of the "genealogy" of all of the code, so I'll just point you to some wiki pages. All kinds of editors are mentioned here: http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport Eclipse-related plugins: http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport/EclipseEditor http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport/EclipseD http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport/BlackbirdForEclipse http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport/DDTForEclipse I think that DDT is the newest plugin. jcc7
