digitalmars.D.announce - Funding for code-d/serve-d

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
This morning at the Hackathon I announced that the D Foundation 
is raising money for code-d/serve-d, the plugin for Visual Studio 
Code and its companion Microsoft Language Server Protocol 
implementation for D.

We've set up a goal of $3000 at our Open Collective page:

https://opencollective.com/dlang#

At the top of the page, you'll see our current balance, the 
projected balance at the end of the year based on the current 
level of monthly donations, and the goal of $3000 on the far 
right.

We're sitting at just over $1100 as I write this, which means 
we're almost halfway there already. We encourage those of you who 
use Webfreak's VS Code plugin to contribute whatever you can in 
order to fund its development, especially if you want to see it 
improve.

An important point is that development on serve-d can ultimately 
benefit not just code-d, but other IDE and editor plugins where 
it may be used.

If we reach $2700 within 30 days, the D Foundation will throw in 
the remaining $300 and we'll let Webfreak get to work.

If this proves successful, we hope to use future goals to fund 
development across the D ecosystem. Some of our targets will be 
driven by the results of the recent State of D Survey and others 
will be driven by other concerns. If you are interested in 
helping to move the state of D development forward, please 
consider contributing!

This is great! I'll donate at some point this month (probably near the endsame)

Any roadmap for what improvements will be made? It seems like it might have been a better choice to support dcd/dscanner/dfix. Most of the functionality is provided by those utilities for pretty much every IDE toolset out there, including code-d/serve-d.

We'll work out the details with Webfreak. DCD and friends will surely get a goal at some point.

I'm a little unclear how OpenCollective works. Do you have to specifically donate to this goal, or does every donation made just go to that? Furthermore, I don't really want to create an OpenCollective account just to donate; I'd prefer to do it directly with my Paypal. Is that possible? Also, does anyone have an image of the supporter t-shirts? If possible I want to donate an amount to get one of those.

Please, I'm considering it as well. Also, though I use WebFreak's extension for VS code, I never really got it to work 100% (never really invested more than a couple minutes either, to be fair). Thinks like syntax highlighting and symbol lookup are really welcome, but I'd like completion support out of the box. Is it only me that has an issue with this?

You are not the only one. I'll stick to VisualD for the moment on Windows, especially for debugging experience.

All donations at OpenCollective go toward the current goal. At the moment, we have no way to automatically link donations at PayPal with the OC goal. Going forward, we'll investigate how to tie this all together, but for now if the OC account is a blocker for you a PayPal donation with a note that it's for the VS Code Plugin is sufficient. I'll keep track manually until we have a better system.

I'll throw the images on a web page before the weekend is out.

There! I went ahead and made a monthly subscription of $25! :)
