digitalmars.D - Settings in CodeBlocks -- D Language

Dear all,

The CodeBlocks IDE supports DMD compiler and I've described the proper
settings for Codeblocks using in D Language.

Please visit the WiKi page here:

http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Installing_a_supported_compiler


BTW, the "Code Completion for D" isn't quite good now, and in future it will
be improved.



Best regards.
David.

My understanding is that Code::Blocks only supports code completion for D because their fuzzy C++ parser can sometimes parse D successfully, and that they don't plan to support D directly. Has this changed?

Acturally everytime when CodeBlocks parses D will be failed.  :(

And for there is no code developer of CodeBlocks using and familar
with D Language, so the support for D will stop here and there's
no further plan in a time.

(CodeBlocks was written in C++ with wxWidgets libraries.)

So, I made a personal decision that I'll start to learn C++
language (I only knows a littel bit C Language :) ), and when I
achive the providing patches level, I'll try to submit patches to
Codeblocks core develop team to improve the D Language support.

I think the biggest problem in CodeBlocks for D Language now is
the 'Code Completion' problem.

I've communicated with them, and I got the feedback as bellow:

**********
There are two major parts of CC(Code Completion), the first part
(we say part A) was collecting tags. we use the parser class and
other helper classes(all the code was under parser- subfolder as
you said) to analyze all the source code, then we store all the
tags(some times, we call Tokens).

The second part( we say Part B) was doing the completion and other
UI tips( eg, when the mouse hover on some ids, there is a function
tip or when you enter some text, then there is a completion list
prompt below your caret), it need to resolve the current code
statement syntax.

Currently CC's code is quite mixing. So, if you want to implement
a D language, you need to implement a part A for D language, and
only modify some code in Part B.
**********

So, if someone be kindly and have the ability to modify the
CodeBlocks source code (svn checkout
http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/codeblocks/trunk), will be a
great help in extending D's IDE for cross-platform area.
(CodeBlocks supports Linux, Windows, OS X, FreeBSD, etc.)



Best reagards.
David.

This was discussed earlier on the Code::Blocks forum, too: http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,12246.0.html It should still "work" with D and GDC, but will need to be developed and extended further to better support D2 and DMD.

Basically the first step is to introduce a "D" language, since it currently only knows C/C++... (The D support is treating itself like a "strange variant of a C++ compiler") Then write lexing/codecompletion/wizard code to handle it. --anders

Really cool, if someone could improve CodeBlocks in this direction. We would have a good crossplatform IDE. BTW: Would be good, if you also can keep our wiki for CodeBlocks up to date. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?EditorSupport/CodeBlocks ┬░Matthias

Because I have a user ID in codeblocks.forum, so I can add the
settings for D into codeblocks's WiKi page.

I don't have a wiki4d ID, so I think the better way is to copy the
corresponding sections os codeblocks's WiKi page into the wiki4d
page by yourself or someone whom has an ID of wiki4d.

There is no ID needed for wiki4d. Just enter your name as CamelCase (e.g.: DavidWang) without any password. ┬░Matthias
