digitalmars.D - Eclipse

Well, according to DDJ I've missed the boat and Eclipse is the best thing since
burnt toast.  I know that there is a D plugin for Eclipse but I tried it and it
crashes on loading a file.  I just downloaded Eclipse for the first time
yesterday, but it seems like it may be the best shot at getting a full-featured
(and cross-platform) IDE for D quickly... including source-level debugging if
folks are ambitious enough.  Is this even worth pursuing?  Would it be a
tremendous amount of work?

Sooner or later we will have it. I didn't do it because eclipse is too slow on my machine, I don't know why (linux 2.6 - I didn't try it with java 1.5 yet).
 Would it be a tremendous amount of work?

Hi.  I'm currently the eclipseD developer (Andy Freisen started the
project.) I don't have much time for development these days, however I do
have big plans for eclipseD. Any help is welcomed and appreciated.

Currently, eclipseD only has syntax highlighting and an outline view,
however the outline modeler is designed such that building a code assist
on top of it makes such a feature much easier to write.  The other
big feature I'm planning is having eclipseD interface with DMD to compile
the source, and highlight errors like Eclipse does.  This, I feel, will be
a very useful feature, but again, I haven't had much time to develop it.

Eclipse provides a really useful environment for programming apps such as
eclipseD, and it eases development a lot.

As for the crashing, please post bug reports on the eclipseD forum on
dsource.org.  If you post the specifics (the VM you're using, your Eclipse
log, operating system, etc..) I'm sure we can get you running.
