Generating C functional wrappers is already pretty cool, but the

Holy crap.

Does SWIG D support static linking by now?

I don't think so. I use swig for d, c#, php, python but it always build
shared libraries.

From the docs 20.10 Work in progress and planned features There are a couple of features which are not implemented yet, but would be very useful and might be added in the near future: Static linking: Currently, the C wrapper code is compiled into a dynamic library, out of which the symbol addresses are looked up at runtime by the D part. If statically linking the different languages into one binary was supported, a tool-chain capable of performing IPO at link time could inline the wrapping code, effectively reducing the overhead for simple calls to zero. Maybe someone should send David some cookies :)

Random thoughts. I think the challege will be to create a reasonable message system. The old WxD projects mimics the MESSAGEMAP() thing. I think a better solution would be to use wxWidgets connect() and to design a D-ish NET like message system. The cleanest D implementation I have seen so far is part of the DGUI project. SWIG : I think we have to modify : https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/blob/master/docs/doxygen/s ripts/swig_tools.py a bit, in order to enable SWIG to generate D2 code. Which wxWidget Version ? IMO at least 2.9x to avoid the UNICODE - non UNICODE stress. Probably 2.9.4 is the best choice (doxygen wise) which will arrive AFAIK in February. How to setup the project ? just the modified Python scripts and some docs? Dunno. Thoughts ?

All files in that folder are dated July 2009. Is there some newer script you were referring to? Btw, wxPhp uses doxygen to generate its bindings but it has its own set of parser scripts. They seem to be up to date compared to these python scripts from 2009.

Wish I am able to send you more recent code :( I have been a bit confused due to the "last changes information" on GIT. Inspiration comes from The wxDesigner Blog "Documentation in Doxygen" http://www.wxdesigner-software.de/WoWoW30.html 2.9.3 changes.txt - Documentation for wxWidgets has been converted from LaTex to C++ headers with Doxygen comments and significantly improved in the process. SORRY !!!
 Btw, wxPhp uses doxygen to generate its bindings but it has its own

Unti version 2.8 x wxPHP is using GCCXML Output. The author is THINKING about using Doxygen's XML ouput. Except a small PHP script there is nothing concrete atm. *Update*---- Just had a look at http://wxphp.org/wxphp/blog/commit-of-new-version. This means wxWidgets doxygen xml output is reality. And the old Python scripts are sill useful. Again, sorry for being not careful enough. Bjoern

 actually read the method call and figure out what is going on.

It's also a great benefit to be able to rely on wxWidgets' available examples and documentation, which might outweigh most benefits you can get by improving or D-ifying the API. Adding more convenient ways of doing things on top of the existing API should be fine, though. DWT doesn't add much on top of SWT, but if I recall correctly, the SWT API is already a lot nicer than wxWidgets.

Hello Andrej,

 I'm porting the JSON scripts first. There are already JSON dumps that
 the php script makes, so I'd like to take advantage of that. Making a
 1to1 port is crucial so I don't introduce any bugs (that php scripts
 creates 500_000 lines of php!). Then I could start tweaking with the
 code generator functions to see how D code can be generated instead of
 php code.

What do you think or feel, in general, is this approach doable and can produce good-quality wxD bindings? Using Doxygen output, probably takes care of wrapping C API only, while there would still be work to produce higher-level bindings in the sporit of D language, right?

The php generator creates a C API that's built into a DLL and a php OOP wrapper. This is what some sample php code looks like: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/538858/

I believe it's possible to D-ify C++ API so that it's still easy to consult original wx docs as well as have nice higher-level API. At least, it is possible in e.g. wxhaskell...
