Hi all,

LDT is a mature project. Of course it is no bug free, but it is usable.

Unfortunately, the team behind LDT vaporized itself. The company which held up it, does not affect any resource on it anymore.

I personally try to spend little time to continue to fix small bug and contribute LDT to eclipse simultaneous release. But this is not so good for the project especially as I don't use it anymore. (I even don't code in Lua anymore)

What does it means ? LDT works but it will not evolve anymore, unless community (companies or users which like to use it) begins to contribute or maybe even take the lead on this project.

If you are interested or you have any questions, this topic is done for that :)

Simon
LDT project lead.

I would like to contribute Simon.

I have coded a lot in lua and i think I have become very knowledgeable on the subject in a lot of things regarding lua.
Pls let me know if such would be a good idea ...

Hi Simon,
What is the status of the project? Is it still in need of contributors? I'm really interested in this project as it matches other projects that I work on.

@Paulo,
Sry for the delay response but I missed your post.
There is no backlog but we have a bugzilla : https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?component=LuaDevelopmentTools&product=LDT&resolution=---

Maybe a good thing to help contribution could be to move to github. I will see, if I found time to do that ...
There is also lot of information in : https://wiki.eclipse.org/LDT

It seems there is other users which are interested :
@Jaroslav OvtsynFriend : https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=1085435&goto=1778797&#msg_1778797
@FlightControl https://github.com/LuaDevelopmentTools/luadocumentor/pull/4#pullrequestreview-122327309

Maybe you could see together how to revive the project ?

Hello everyone!

I was using eclipse for 1.5 years and the whole platform seems to degrade, more and more bugs I face each release. I think that LSP (language server protocol) is the future for this project. This will allow for this project to be used in IDEA, vscode, atom and of course Eclipse.
