It seems extremely unlikely that this will happen. The closest thing you will probably get is the Eclipse plugin. This is a decent start, but could use some help (*hint* *hint*)... Dave

What do you mean by "could use some help"? Regards, Ary

Ary is doing well with the descent plugin. I've found it to be the best editor among all of the available editors.

FWIW the Zeus for Windows IDE has support the D language: http://www.zeusedit.com It does things like D syntax highlighting, code folding, integrated version control, project/workspace, class browsing etc. It can also be configured to integrated with Ddbg to give basic debugging support: http://www.zeusedit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1070 Jussi Jumppanen Author: Zeus for Windows IDE

I mean, if you compare it to the Java plugin, it doesn't do Ddoc integration from what I can tell, it doesn't integrate with the Eclipse run system (as a D application or a set of DUnit tests or the debugger), it doesn't integrate with the Eclipse notion of source folders and packages, etc. etc. Then there's the little things like the fact that the D editor uses the Java editor icon, doesn't work with the Hierarchy viewer (though the Outline viewer works great), doesn't integrate with the D build tools, etc. These aren't show stoppers by any means, but many of them are things that people take for granted when they say "commercial IDE", so I was just letting the OP know that the Eclipse plugin is mostly a text editor and not really a full IDE. I think it's a great start, and I might be willing to get my hands dirty and lend a hand on some of those features, but I think we can all agree that the D plugin has a ways to go to achieve parity with the JDT.

I know of a company that's developing a plug-in for a fairly popular commercial IDE. I've tested the product and I can tell you that you'll love it once it's finished in a couple of months. They want to keep things under warps so I can tell you much more right now.

Nice. Be sure to post something about it when it's done.

Zeus has code completion, workspace management, class/field/function navigator, debugging -- a great IDE once you take some time to learn it.

Zeus will definitely require the user take some time to learn use it. With regard to the class browsing feature, Zeus uses the ctags utility as it source of program information. Quite some time ago I made changes to ctags to support the D languages and posted my code changes here: http://www.zeusedit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=613 Since then I come across another patch for ctags which appears to be based on my original changes, which claims to offer better support for the D language: http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?ReferenceForTools/ExuberantCtags But when I tried to apply the patch to the ctags 5.6 code base using this GNU Patch Version 2.5.9 it failed :( If anyone has managed to apply this patch, could you please let me know which patch utility and version of ctags source code you used, as I am keen to see if Zeus will work correctly with this improved version of the ctags.exe utility.

I managed to answer my own question :) For anyone else who might be interested, if you use this version of the exuberant ctags source code: ec56w32.zip and run this GNU Patch Version 2.5.9 command line: PATCH < ctags-5.6-d.patch.txt it will correctly patch the c.c and parsers.h files. It failed for me the first time because I was stupidly trying to apply the patch to the 5.5 version of the ctags source code. To use the new ctags with Zeus just rename the file to xtags.exe and put the executable in the Zeus install directory. Cheers Jussi Author: Zeus for Windows IDE
