Antw.: Re: [desktop-devel-list] Potential GNOME IDE


I'm from the NetBeans team and, as others have stated, NetBeans looks great on any operating system, just use 
Nimbus (that's what I and others use all the time) if you don't like the native appearance.

Since NetBeans and other IDEs are open source, why not contribute to these existing IDEs instead of making 
your own from scratch?

I'm one of the developer of Anjuta, so this discussion looks a bit 
strange. I think Anjuta is already quite mature as a GNOME IDE. It 
supports smart indentation, debugger, git, code completion, automatic 
generation of GObject boilder plate code...

Contrary to Netbeans or even Geany which uses only Gtk+ 2, it uses Gtk+ 
3, GtkSourceView, Glade, Devhelp.

What is missing?

Compared to the mockup that I have seen the current interface is more 
complex but it has lots of functions so I'm not sure it's possible to 
make it really simple.

Anyway, the architecture is very flexible because every function is 
provided by plugins communicating with each other through GObject 
interfaces. So it's possible to add new features rather easily or have a 
quite difference appearance (GtkPod is using it).

For the current status, it's now possible to restrict the loaded 
plugins. You can have a JavaScript profile and a C profile using a 
completely different set of plugins. As a test, I have added a profile 
to keep only the editor plugin.

Then for JavaScript, the support is pretty basic, but we will be happy 
to get any contribution to improve it. I think the debugger is not 
working currently.
