Code completion with DCD in VS Code

Hello,

can anybody please help me get code completion in either VS Code (CodeD) or IntelliJ IDEA (IntelliJ D Language 1.15.4) to work under Ubuntu x86-64?

For IntelliJ, I installed DCD 0.9.1-Q from d-apt, configured the installation path under "D Tools" in the IntelliJ configuration (path is detected automatically) and added a configuration file dcd.conf under ~/.config/dcd, which looks like this:

/usr/include/dmd/druntime/import/
/usr/include/dmd/phobos/

Unforunately when I press the dot after an object name in the editor, I get a random list of suggestions instead of the correct method names, please see

https://picload.org/view/ddldidri/dcd.png.html

VS Code installs it's own version of DCD. The suggestions are simply a list of all keywords in the current file, please see

https://picload.org/view/ddldioga/dcd2.png.html

Can anybody please tell me how to fix this?

Best regards and thanks in advance,
Timo

From your second snapshot, try with "import std.datetime" instead of "std.datetime.systime"

For me, on Ubuntu, i have to restart manually dcd (ctrl+P + kill DCD server or restart DCD server) AND reload import Path (ctrl+P + Reload import path).
Apart that it works very well (again for me).

Maybe that works for you also ...

Waiting patiently for serve-d, the next iteration of Webfreak's code-d to be ready...
or you can try directly serve-d, (didn't work for me last time i checked)

Cheers

Thanks for your answer. No change unfortunately.

Thanks a lot! Now it does. :-)

Just one correction for the archives: The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl-Shift-P. I even didn't need to reload the import path. Just "restart DCD Server" did the trick.

There are several interesting things in the making concerning IDEs. DlangIDE for example has nicely working code completion and is very lightweight and easy to use, but unfortunately lacks some debugging features like custom watches.

Let's see what 2018 will bring to the D community.

Thanks again and best regards,
Timo

I'm one of the core devs for the intellij plugin.
Make sure that the following are setup:

1. You have a D project sdk, under File > Project Structure

2. If your project is a dub project make sure you have added your dependencies to the intellij project. This can be done automatically via Tools > Process D Libraries. In future releases this will be done automatically whenever dub.json/sdl is changed.

3.Dcd server and client executable paths are configured under Settings > Other Settings > D Tools. In future releases this is moving to Languages & Frameworks. The next release will also add an option to disable builtin completion, which you will probably want to do.

Please note that because of the way intellij handles saving files certain dcd operations are be done synchronously which can create performance issues.We are working on this. Code completion is currently a mix of intellij code completion and dcd, symbols from dcd have a d logo next too them.
