digitalmars.D.dwt - DWT and all those projects

reply Frank Benoit <keinfarbton googlemail.com> writes:
Now there are 5 dwt projects on dsource.org.
The purpose of those is this:

DWT:
This is the known dwt project from Shawn Liu, based on SWT 3.0.2.
The repository is hosted as subversion repository.
The library is phobos compatible.
This project is not really related to the other 4 projects.

DWT-...:
All other DWT projects are hosted as Mercurial repositories.
They are primarily compatible to Tango. (Tangobos?)

DWT-Win, DWT-Linux:
The SWT ports for windows and linux-gtk.

DWT-Samples:
DWT examples and snippets. Perhaps additional tutorial sources. A wild 
growing examples collection.

DWT-Addons:
Ports of JFace functionality and other high-level stuff building on top 
of dwt.

All those DWT-... projects are in fact one project. And they only exist, 
to have separated repositories. Perhaps sometime in future, there will 
be a way to host those repositories in one dsource-project.

For questions please use this newsgroup instead of the dsource forum, or 
use the IRC channel #dwt on freenode.

Ty Tower, If you have mercurial installed http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/BinaryPackages then you just have to run: hg clone http://hg.dsource.org/projects/dwt-linux in the console(run cmd in windows) at the location you wish to have dwt source files. The files then need to be compiled and installed, I would suggest DSSS for this: http://dsource.org/projects/dsss

What plattform are you on? Windows: the dwt-win is not yet runnable. We are working on it. Linux: dwt-linux is runnable. Problem may occur and testing is needed. I encourage ppl to use it and report problems. So we can fix bugs. For install and use of Mercurial, please see http://www.dsource.org/projects/dwt-win/wiki#AccessingtheRepository

For documentation you can use the SWT documentation http://www.eclipse.org/swt/ Differences: drop org.eclipse. in the module names and change to dwt. For example: org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Button becomes dwt.widgets.Button and org.eclipse.swt.SWT becomes dwt.DWT
