digitalmars.D.ide - Best IDE

Just curious who thinks what IDE is best?

I don't think any IDE is perfect, and I've been using Eclipse 
with DDT and have been having a good time with it. However I 
don't particularly like Eclipse much, and was wondering what 
others though?

I don't use Windows myself so I couldn't use VisualD or anything 
like that or try it out.

I really like Jetbrains products (IntellijIDEA, Phpstorm, CLion ...), unfortunatly there is no full support for D in any of them :(. So I use DDT and MonoD, however I am not big fan of eclipse and MonoDevelop neither.

I was really hopeful about an IntellijIDEA plugin https://github.com/kingsleyh/DLanguage but then he updated the readme with "PLEASE NOTE - This project is not being actively maintained at the moment - I am taking a break - not sure when I will return." There are also two other attempts that are also abandoned.

If someone will volunteer to help me write the D parser in intellij I will continue with the plugin. The reason the project stalled is because I was using the DDT parser and the way its hooked into intellij caused massive performance problems. I think the only way to have acceptable speed is to implement the D parser in the intellij supported way. Which does not support left recursion. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to convert the current D grammar into the format intellij wants - I have even tried to pay people to help me - but with no success. I love using intellij - but you have to do it their way if you want to create plugins for it - which unfortunately sucks. When I say volunteer to help - I mean contribute hours, weeks and months of sustained effort on a regular and constant basis until the basic parsing is done. Once the grammar is parsable I can add all the other stuff that makes working in intellij awesome.

Have you reconsidered going my original way of using a D tool to produce the AST? Like DScanner.

yeah but it's integrating an external parser that causes the performance issues - no matter if that parser is written in D or Java or whatever. The only way to not kill the performance is to write the parser using intellij's infrastructure.

How integrated is that infrastructure in the parser? Can you use an existing external parser and add the integration on top? -- /Jacob Carlborg

Unfortunately not - there is no performant way to use an external parser. Even using an external parser is not possible without major hackery - which is the main source of the performance issues.

Which D IDEs support the following refactoring features:

Which IDEs have autocomplete in the textbox of the dialog "Add

I think that we should make wiki page with tables, which show 
current progress on refactoring features, debugging features and 
so on of the different IDEs. The common list of refactoring 
features can be added from mature tools like IntelliJ IDEA, 
Visual AssistX, Resharper.
Also we could vote for some features in this common table. IDE 
maintainers could consider such common feature request list.

What's the news on this? I applaud your efforts as D needs a good ide that contributes to the programmers productivity. Is the D grammar implementation still the issue? I saw someone mention JFlex and someone at http://forum.dlang.org/post/rgaqfhccifjfgncvrunx forum.dlang.org is working on a JFlex parser. Can someone who is just starting to use this toolchain easily fix problems or does it require a lot of compiling, waiting, restarting, etc? If I can easily apply changes to the grammar under discussion and see the changes near instantaneous(not > minutes) I would be willing to help on that end.

I personally like it when my code looks beautiful an pretty, so I use Atom text editor on Ubuntu. It can compile D source code using the "script" packages. I looks great for my taste although it is not an IDE, but has most of the functionality I usually need.

I use QtCreator for my daily C++ stuff and I really got used to it because it has a very good code editor, project management and version control integration. If you learn all its shortcuts you don't need to leave your fingers from the keyboard anymore. And there is a D plugin using DCD for code completion: https://github.com/Groterik/qtcreator-dlangeditor And this plugin (by the same author) enables DUB project integration: https://github.com/Groterik/qtcreator-dubmanager. I am using both plugins with QtCreator on a D project and I am very satisfied with that solution.. Cheers, André

I bounce back and forth from windows to linux. What I use is sublime text, it's a very versatile cross-platform IDE. It has support for third party plugins, and very customize-able build system (even though I normally just use it to call build.sh / build.bat). the out-put of the build system can be configured to open the file and jump to the line number when you double click on a warning or error. Links- http://sublimetext.com/3 https://github.com/yazd/DKit -- Package/plugin for sublime https://github.com/Hackerpilot/DCD -- Auto-complete util used by DKit, has a few bugs but works most of the time. -Dave

I use Atom Text Editor on Ubuntu. Atom has a nice syntax coloring functionality as well as many packages you can install to give you more. In fact, packages can be written in Atom to do almost any task(D programming related tasks). Some of the interesting packages I use include: 1. language-d - D support and auto-completion 2. d-struct - Running dub projects, etc. 3. term - using terminal within the editor (great when u want to run code using both dub and manual 4. atom-clang and language-c - support and linting c code with clang installed 5. atom-dlang - also D support, but I use it and language-d 6. tested - code testing, unittest, profiling, mmHH I guess. Any way try it. 7. script - For running D code with Ctrl + Shift + B (Auto detects the programming language and does compilation and linking automatically). Also displays result in the editors' terminal. 8. tool-bar - provides a toolbar in the editor for click and execute (used by some packages to present icons buttons). Required for "tested" package 9. linter-dscanner - works in conjunction with Dscanner (I haven't figured how to get it to work yet. These will also give you some extra convenience: 1. minimap - Gives you side minimap like you find in sublime text editor 2. atom-beautify - code beatification :) I also use "consolas" font which makes my code look like ice cream. There are tones of packages for almost every programming language as well as themes. If you like sublime, I think you will love Atom. Check it out at atom.io. (linux, windows, mac, etc.)

There are not so much specialized tools: DUB, DCD, Dscanner, Dfmt, Digger and they are not only solo projects. There are more GUIs and they are more sparse so here you're a bit right but all of them use the same tools ;)

Lol, start your solo project then or get involved in the one that exists now. ______________________________________________________________________ My own experience is that I can use a particular D IDE during many hours (for me it's coedit) and I forget about the IDE existence itself, which is a good thing. Sometimes however there's small problems and I have to restart a session but I've experienced the same with others, more mature, OSS or commercial, older than 15 years, IDEs.

That's about being productive, having great toolset to help me develop things with confidence, fast, and without having to worry about external stuff, typo, or missing using statements If you want stay a niche product, then don't need to worry about mass adoption If you want to attract new developers, then work on essential tools for setting up a productive workflow without frustration for people who just want to learn That's how mainstream industry work, they do everything to charm new users, once charmed, they'll stay, new user don't care about behind the scene stuff, they just look at what is offered I'm a "newbie" in programming in general, i first learnt java, then C#, i wanted to go native with C++ but i found it too difficult, despite having great IDEs, i decided to learn something else, i found D, beautiful language, but it really needs a major IDE, (Visual Studio for C#, Eclipse for Java, CodeBlocks for C++, HaxeDevelop for Haxe, XCode for Swift, etc..) This is just my opinion, i might be wrong, too young (18yo) but that's how i think it should be

[...] It is difficult to make the right decision, the page: https://wiki.dlang.org/IDEs is not updated automatically, so for example:
Dlang IDE 	Cross platform (Dlang UI) 	IDE itself is written in D 
and can be installed by cloning from github and running dub.
It has DUB support, code completion, debugging support with GDB
 0.5.23 	2015-12-29
Now is at: 0.6.10 (2016-Jun-06) It would be very useful, having more up to date information, what is the best IDE for getting started. In the moment I am using good old emacs only missing a jade (diet-template editor mode....) It would be very cool to have D starter packages for all major OS, which offer the different compilers, IDE and direct access to interesting code examples from a learning D-tour or "the" D books.

Thx, but I don't think CE will "win". A few monthes ago I was frustrated because it's not as popular as i'd wished, at point that i've even insulted several people here (like Vadim and Kingsley) but fortunately I've landed back on earth. Actually the fact that CE is a bit at the margin is a plus: I can really do what i want. I always thought that Mono-D would "win" but since MS has acquired the Mono platform I don't know where Xamarin will go. Eventually Dlang IDE could also "win" but not in the near future.

Visual D has that feature. It works very well ( although it won't differentiate between functions overloads )

Not all of them do, I tried a bunch yesterday and none of them had it. I was able to get vs code working with code-d, which I had to add the stdlib path to manually. I did want to use Atom though, looking at the plugins there though it seems none of them are maintained anymore.

Not all of them do, I tried a bunch yesterday and none of them had it. I was able to get vs code working with code-d, which I had to add the stdlib path to manually. I did want to use Atom though, looking at the plugins there though it seems none of them are maintained anymore.
Yeah...most of the time you must add the path to the libraries somwhere and also sometimes RTFM ;) But essentially Visual-D has, Mono-D has, Coedit has, code-d has, dlang-ide has, etc...

Try Geany (geany.org), it's a best code editor I've ever used. Tweak some of its interface like place "Message window" in the bottom (in Preferences/Interface/Notebook tabs) to use Terminal comfortable.

 I don't think any IDE is perfect, and I've been using Eclipse 
 with DDT and have been having a good time with it. However I 
 don't particularly like Eclipse much, and was wondering what 
 others though?

 I don't use Windows myself so I couldn't use VisualD or 
 anything like that or try it out.

I use Emacs with D mode and ansi-term, as well as completion.

I'm using Intellij IDEA with Kingsley's D plugin. On a slightly 
related note has anyone read about Language Server Protocol 
(https://github.com/Microsoft/language-server-protocol)?

Currently planned to be supported by Visual Studio Code and 
Eclipse Che. It's intended to be independent of any IDE so if D 
support is implemented then it'll be available to any IDE/test 
editor that can understand the protocol.
