Hi Sven

What is the relationship between Xtext 2.11 and the Simultaneous Release?

Presumably it's not going to be in Oxygen M5, will it be in M6?

Regards

Ed Willink

Hi Ed,
we are about to add Xtext 2.11.0 to the aggregation repository.
Unfortunately there is at least one version constraint which prevents us adding 2.11.x version to the M5 common repository.

I'm afraid we will be able to add 2.11 only in M6

Regards,
Dennis.

Hi Sven,

great news and congratulations for the new release.

When, do think, will the intellij plugins v 2.11.0 be available? As of now, there's no release on the xtend-idea repo on github.

Regards,
Andreas

Hi Andreas,

unfortunately, there is little interest in the intellij idea support of Xtext and high maintenance effort on the other side.
So we didn't come around to update them as part of this release. That said it would still be possible to update and publish them, but someone has to do it.
Contributions are very welcome!

Regards,
Sven

Hi Sven,

oh, that's bad news. But when I create a new plugin with eclipse, it offers to generate IDEA plugins. Does this work already? Does it assemble installable IDEA plugins?

I'm about to propose xtend (for tests) and xtext based languages (to generate java code and sql scripts) on a big jee project and it would really be an asset to provide support for the IDEA users too.

Cheers,
Andreas

Yes, I know it is bad news and I am sorry about it.
We went for a deep native integration with IDEA, but unfortunately they break us on a regular basis (I don't blame them, as we also use internal APIs especially in the tests).
It turned out to require relatively high effort and very few contributors willing to work on it. Still there are some contributors and I am all open for more contributions in this area, of course! Wink
Personally, I think a more practical solution would be LSP support in IDEA, which would be not as native and deep but much less maintenance. (please vote here, if you agree: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEABKL-7409)

Building an Xtext language for idea should work, though, and in case there are compatibility issues it should be possible to fix them through dependency injection.
But we haven't updated the plugins in the jetbrains repo, yet.

Hi Sven,

yes, it works in general. I was able to build xtext-idea based on the 2.11 maintenance branch from github and successfully launch intellij with the entities example language (smoketest with IDEA 2016.1). Added the entities facet and I was able to write an entities source file and generate the code.

Unfortunately, and that's something you might want to have a look at: If I create a xtext 2.11 project from eclipse and tick the 'idea' checkbox, then it creates a idea plugin project with a broken gradle build, because gradle tries to get plugins from a non-existent plugins repository. Still looking for a workaround, but I'm not a gradle expert. Right now I have a working xtext-idea plugin on my disk and no idea on how to make the build use that instead of one from a remote plugin site.

And I upvoted on the jetbrains ticket!

Andreas,

you could try to replace the URL with http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/tmf/xtext/idea/2.10.0/ in your Gradle build file. As I see, no repository is available for 2.11 yet. Hope this helps a bit.
