Re: Potential GNOME IDE

I understand we need a IDE build on top of gtk, and I also want to see that personally.

However building a usable IDE is very hard and complex: live parsing and indexing accurately takes significant amount of effort.Especially indexing and parsing complex language like C++ (which I believe a lot of developers would want this IDE to support) . Also, core features such as code completion will be even hard for language like Python. I guess that's why there are users perfer to use "ugly" IDE like netbeans rather than a good looking Anjuta.

We want an IDE built with GTK+. Not only does Netbeans look bad in
GNOME, it looks bad in every other platform, as well. Something like
Geany or Anjuta would be a better starting point.
