A small promotion video that shows several aspects of my IDE through a short hack of DMD. The hack consists of a warning on partial static array initialization.



1/ Custom tools

DMD is build with a user defined tool[1]. A shell script that builds DMD and Phobos is launched.

2/ Completion

DMD is a makefile project. It's not supported as a Coedit project so to get DCD completion, the path to the sources must be added to the libman[2].
Also i use the integrated file explorer since the project inspector is useless here.

3/ Compiler Paths

The hack is tested directly in the IDE. This is possible thanks to the feature allowing to define several D compilers[3] and to select which one is used in a particular context. The context here is the "runnable modules" [4]. I can test the hack in a module that's even not saved.
