You can find the plugin here:
<http://michelf.com/projects/d-for-xcode/>

Basically, it does the following:

*   It adds to Xcode the GDC D compiler and the appropriate build rules
    so that D source files are recognised and are as easy to compile as
    C, C++, and Objective-C ones. Once you've added a D source file to a
    project or target, options specific to the D compiler will apear in
    the build settings.

*   It allows Xcode to track dependencies between files (by looking for
    `import` declarations) and automatically recompile files when a
    dependency has been modified.

*   It allows the Xcode debugger to work with D files: setting breakpoints
    and stepping thru the code works as you'd expect it.

*   It provides "perfect" syntax highlighting using the lexer from
    Digital Mars' D front end.

*   It populates the Code Sense editor function popup with functions,
    classes, and some other constructs the D front end parser can find
    in your D source file.

The plugin works on Mac OS X 10.4.10, with Xcode 2.4.1. I have no idea 
how it performs on the very-soon-to-be-released Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard 
(which has Xcode 3). I do not expect it to work unmodified though.

Great work! Is is possible to relicense it under "GPL v2 or later", so that I can include it with the gdcmac package once it's stable ? --anders

I'll do that. -- Michel Fortin michel.fortin michelf.com http://michelf.com/

I gave it a quick test and it seems to work wonderfully. Debugging, code sense and everything else. Great job! -- Oskar

It looks like you're trying to link against the Mac OS X 10.4 Universal SDK and that the compiler is searching for the library within the SDK instead of looking at the standard system path. Assuming building against the 10.4 SDK is what you want, here's my solution: add libgphobos.a to the SDK using a symlink, like this: cd /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr/lib/gcc/darwin sudo mkdir default sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgphobos.a default/libgphobos.a I'll see if I can arrange things better. Handling this from inside the the plugin would be ideal. -- Michel Fortin michel.fortin michelf.com http://michelf.com/
