I think this is a valuable project, but without a mentor we can't take if off the ground. Who is interested?

Thanks,

I might be up for this. Can anybody fill me in on what is involved in being a mentor? I've never done it before, but I have some project management experience and I am really interested in seeing improved IDE integrations for D.

Great! For details on the application process, refer to http://dlang.org/gsoc2012.html.

For details on what mentors are expected to do, see http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2012/faqs and the excellent mentor manual at http://en.flossmanuals.net/GSoCMentoring/.


Thanks,

Thanks for the offer!

'Unfortunately' there already is one who wants to be a mentor -
but anyway: Thanks for being willed to do this!

Oops, small mistake happened - didn't know that he was called "LightBender"

A bit of a side note, but is there any way that some of this work could be made more standalone, even if somebody else has to take up the work to finish it and make it truly standalone. I personally can't stand fully integrated environments, but I do like things like code completion and the like, so it would be nice to be able to use these features in, for example, vim. I don't know how feasible this is, but it's worth mentioning.

I use this script called supertab.vim that maps tab
to vim's control+p and control+n completition.

I find it works really well, and for virtually
everything too, not just code.

Yes!! I want a standalone version too.
I like Mono-D very much, however, not being able to type the "~" key in MonoDevelog is really annoying.

I can't really agree here. Lets take the GSOC-List as the list of crucial points about the D language ecosystem which need to be fixed asap. All other stuff is extra and not even close as important. (Don't forget the mono-D plugin is written in C#, hence porting would be required with the implications of having to keep D and C# code in sync). Please don't let us lose focus here again...

1. We need a proper IDE
2. We need the GC problems/issues get fixed
(3. an official gc-less runtime)

At least I consider those points crucial for the success of D. CTFE etc. are (very) nice things, but don't make the very core of D any stable now.
