Dwarf Fortress eclipse plugin, wip
« on: March 15, 2010, 10:51:53 am »

Hello,

I have started "Eclipse for Dwarf Fortress" project. So far, results are enouraging:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

As you can see, I have basic syntaxt-highlighted text editor running along with outline display and syntax check (along with code completion even).

So far supported raws are:
* All OBJECT:ITEM raws

So far whole "project" consists of xtext definition of grammar for raws:

Here at google code

Features:

* Code completion
* Crosslinking of resources and code completition on user defined objects
* Validation
* Other nifty features like code folding, outline

How-To:

So far, project is in baby-mode, so it takes extra effort to get running, here are few steps:

1) Download xtext ide, you want "Eclipse 3.6M6 (Helios) + TMF Xtext 1.0.0M6"
2) Unpack and run eclipse, create new worskpace, create new Xtext project
3) In wizzard, only important thing is that you select extension "txt"
4) Project gets created along with sample definition file, "Raw.xtext", replace contents of this with whatever you download
5) run GenerateRaw.mwe2, this will actually create plugion from grammar
6) run project as "eclipse application", this launches new eclipse that has our raw plugin installed
7) Create new untyped project
8) Create new direction ans select advanced options: link to existing filesystem directory.
9) You are done. or not, this is not exactly good explanation of what you need to do.
7)

Except that, you know, the term is MATGLOSS...

I'm also fairly certain there's no [ANNOYING] tag :P

And, there is aparently issue with comments (they are hard to parse as their delimiters - ] for start and [ for end are part of tag definition), any ideas about defining them?

Could you do something with the fact that anything not enclosed in brackets is technically a comment?

Halfway throught MATGLOSS.

As you can see, crosslinking materials and metals works perfectly: editor now "knows" that METAL tag refers to existing metal raw and that ENVIROMENT_SPEC prefers to stone raw and does apropriate checks as well as code assists. Yay!

Went ahead and switched to xtext 1.0 experimental branch to get new juicy features:

ctrl+shift+g to find refencences to selected object

ctrl+o to bring up quick outline for find-as-you type objects

f3 to jump to object definition

Er . . . what does this do, for those less-computer savvy of us?
