I'm working on this around the clock. If everything goes ok I might have the wxc wrapper done by the end of the week, but I'm not making any promises.

I'm not having much difficulty, there are some edge-cases here and there but it's fine. PS: Yes, however I'm now basing the wxc generated code around the existing wxc binding, and not wxPhp. wxPhp uses some 3rd party library that has to do a lot of magic to interact with a C library, so it's code generators are not that useful to me. The existing wxc bindings already have memory management in place which I can reuse. PPS: I'm parsing the xml files fine, there's no need to use tango at this point.

I'm not publishing any code yet since I don't want people to do duplicate work and make pulls, we'll end up stepping on each other's toes. And work can't be done in parallel since you need wxc before you can generate wxd wrappers.

I'd ask for a little bit of patience! Thanks. :)

I think the answer to a question such as "What's the alternative to Qt in D?" should not be "Qt bindings" but maybe a library which imitates the implementation and/or interface of Qt UI widgets in native D.

To be taken with a pinch of salt.  I raised an eyebrow or two when looking at the estimated cost for GDC. ;-)

A C++ to D autoporter? That's an interesting idea.

Thank you very much for your efforts!!

No problem. We've all the patience of the world. ;)

Just a small update:

542 classes are successfully generated (and buildable). 132+ are left to go.

I've ran into a few issues where the interface files (from which the xml is built) are not in sync with the code. So there might be missing types definitions, or wrong types in methods, etc. But these can be worked around by adding extra type definitions in the generator (IOW there's no need to manually touch the .cpp files by hand).

So wxc won't be done by this week, but it's progressing pretty good so far. Stay tuned..

Sorry, when I said "classes" I meant wxc class wrappers. The D classes are not yet generated until I get wxc done, but wxc is 95% of the source of difficulty. Generating wxd should be easy after that.

Chapeau Andrej !

Silly Question .. did you try to  to use regen (or however it is named) script to re-create the doxygen xml files ?

Another question regarding wxC. Will there be an option to generate a shared library so/dll ?

Thanks (and please keep us informed.)

Great!

I saw your messages in wx-dev and wonder what will be the way to keep those files in sync or, at least, detect there are inconsistencies?

All the best!!

That's what I do, yes. The wxPhp xml files were a little outdated anyway.

For wxc I'll have to provide both static and shared library support.

win32-only: I've tried statically linking 2.9.3 via optlink but it couldn't handle the vast amount of symbol names. Even if that was resolved (it won't be) I can't use optlink anymore since wxWidgets has basically dropped support for DMC, and I have to use either g++ or MSC to build wxWidgets. Remember that Optlink can't link to COFF. The alternatives that I know of are DMD+Unilink + static/dynamic library, DMD+Optlink + dynamic library, or GDC + static/dynamic library. There's also LDC but I haven't used it for D2 yet.
