In case you doubt of dexed stability and D's GC

apparently an IDE not programmed in D but that uses a dll made in D and that uses the D garbage collector can run for more than one week without problems:

---
[basile@pc-12 styx]$ ps -p $(pidof "dexed") -o etime
    ELAPSED
 7-10:59:25
[basile@pc-12 styx]$
---

from https://c.gmx.com/@558129942915716568/ol2I2YbTSZ2K5IOYvEfffg.

Only 8 Gb DRam installed, average use is 250Mb although previously, when what does the dll was made by processes, it was more like 40Mb... but well that's not too crazy as long as it's stabilized.

So during one week, it's about 100+ files opened closed scanned for their AST etc..., on each tab switch too. The diff for what's been done during this 7 days is like -2500 +2000. I don't count the "runnables" created when I test an issue or a snipset posted in .Learn.

Dont't be afraid of the GC. Even if it uses more memory than ARC.
That just works.

Is dexed actively developed?

Hi Imperatorn

Did you ever get an answer to this question?  I'm also curious
to know the state of dexed.  I'm usually working on Linux but
sometimes on Windows and would find a cross-platform IDE to be
handy.

Thanks,

Hi,

No, but there seems to be some activity https://gitlab.com/basile.b/dexed/-/commits/master

Have you (also) tried DlangIDE btw?

Actually I haven't.  But since you mentioned it I'll give it a try after some immediate fires are put out.  Do you use DlangIDE, at least occasionally?

I want to. We have tried to reach out to the author to take over development but unfortunately haven't gotten any response 😞
