Re: Adding D Editor Support
Along those lines, here's one I use all the time:

  import std.stdio;

  int main(string[] args)
  {
    return 0;
  }

A lot of DWT (SWT) JFace snippets are in my mind, but it depends on how 
flexible your snippet editor is.
For instance :
JFSF =
class SimpleForm : ApplicationWindow {
.........
}
should become :
class {1} : ApplicationWindow {
.........
}
so typing JFSF should open a popup asking for the the classname.

In case that your IDE is that flexible, a couple a DWT, JFace snippets, 
 are possible... Otherwise take it as enhancement suggestion :)

Here are the snippets used by Descent:

http://dsource.org/projects/descent/browser/trunk/descent.ui/templates/default-templates.xml

There should probably be more, because we didn't spend much time with 
that file.

And occasionally they have the right line but wrong file, and sometimes, 
_sometimes_ they have nothing at all.

But those aren't intended ;)

Re: Adding D Editor Support
Hi Bjoern,

Yes, this is possible. You just use a macro in the source snippet, e.g. ${CLASS}, and then when you insert it, it places the caret at the first macro: filling it in replaces all instances of the macro, and hitting Enter takes you to the next one. No pop up dialogs, but it accomplishes the same thing (with less invasiveness and annoyance).

Where do DWT and JFace fit into the grand scheme of things? That is, are they as ubiquitous in D as Swing and SWT are in the Java community?

Regards,

John

Crap.

Now it's easy enough to support a new style of error reporting, if the format is consistent, but not so easy when it's hard to break things down into a small number of patterns. Multiline errors are particularly difficult because it's often not apparent when they end, or what is the most important part of the message.

Without documentation on the format, the best I can do is to experiment with the compiler and try to elicit all possible errors/warnings. And hope they fall into a small number of consistent patterns (which seems likely given that all the errors I encountered so far matched the above patterns).

Anyone having inside knowledge of the format care to save me some time here? (Walter, you listening? :-)

John

Hi Ary,

Nice! Thank you so much. I'd be happy to send you our template file when it's finished.

That is pretty cool!

DWT is "per se" the standard GUI library for D. Means: Walter (the D 
language creator) declared SWT/DWT as standard GUI. DWT is ATM en pair 
with SWT 3.4M7, in other words bleeding edge.
So yes, DWT/JFace/Forms is for D what SWT etc. means for Eclipse/Java.

(It was allmost Frank Benoit, who made that hercules work) further 
information at : http://www.dsource.org/projects/dwt

You'll also find links to DWT/JFace/Forms snippets on this page which 
are most probabely usefull as snippet templates..

OFF TOPIC
Since about 3 years I am working on a realtime developer collaboration 
IDE. (slightly different in that I am using a C/S RDBMS as SCM) Would be 
interesting to exchange some ideas ...
