digitalmars.D - [GSOC] ANTLR and Java based D parser for IDE usage

Hello,

since  my previous thread title "GSOC 2011" was not so specific I created a
new one. Please refer to the previous posts.

I would like to know if this ANTLR idea could be useful or not for the
D community and if eventually somebody is interested to be my mentor.

Please feel free to discuss about this topic.

Thank you

Hi Luca. Yes, I am interested in being a mentor for proposals such as these: anything related to Eclipse-based D IDE stuff (and accordingly I have contacted Andrei and Walter to apply). But to make a successful proposal it helps (perhaps even is essential) to be familiar and well aware of how the GSoC project would be used and how it would be useful in conjunction with existing tools. And again it help that some of these things (at least the basic stuff) are figured out and explored out of the initiative of the student himself. So, first of all, which D IDEs have you tried so far? -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

Hi,

thank you for your reply and your interest in being a mentor.
I was reading the GSoC Student Guide to understand how to structure my proposal.
By tomorrow evening (San Francisco Time) I'll post a draft of my proposal.
I need some time to explore the existing D IDEs and to illustrate how
this GSoC idea
can be useful for the community.
I would like to present in the proposal a timeline of the objectives
of this project in order
to make the best use of these three months of work.

I'm familiar with Eclipse and I have played a bit with your DDT plugin.
Given the overall quality of Eclipse I have found that it is more reasonable to
go with a plugin approach to build an IDE, rather than to build one
from scratch.
I still have to investigate the other IDEs available for D but since ANTLR
produces a high quality Java parser I assume that DDT would be the IDE
that will
benefit the most from this GSoc idea.

Thank you

Luca Boasso
