Hi,

I want to outline which methods are generated in my generated code. I read there is a tool called Mint that colors the methods in the Outline view accordingly, but cant find it or enable it in recent version of EMF(tools). Any ideas?

Kind regards,
Ewoud

Sorry, that project was archived long ago.

Ah, thanks. That explains why I couldn't find it.
Is there an alternative, as the filter outline function cannot filter on javadoc annotations (such as @generated) as far as I know?

Sorry, I don't know of anything that could be done in this regard without installing some type of extension... I thought there was some way to at least showing markers in the ruler, but I couldn't find anything like that in the preferences.

Hi

The termination Bugzilla for MINT lists its archive: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=394852

My initial recollection of MINT was that it appeared on my machine by accident and my JDT EMF experience was unexpectedly different; I'm not fond of unexpected change.

However I came to quite like the coloring that distinguished autogenerated functionality and so when MINT vanished I was disappointed.

Unfortunately MINT was a one project and one man projects are often short lived. I just took a quick look at the archive to see how resurrectable it might be. The archived sources are all CVS *,v files so those may be increasingly difficult to resurrect. However the downloads\drops\0.9.0\S201006092349\emft-mint-All-incubation-0.9.0RC4.zip appears to have clean *.java files.

As it stands I think MINT aspired to too many EMF added value functionalities that overlap with Modisco. If the MINT code was rescued and trimmed to just the functionality that colors the outline view, the result might be small enough and simple enough to contribute to another project such as EMF itself. However Java 8 and @NonNull have happened since MINT was archived and so a bit of modernisation is almost certainly needed before before a mini-MINT could be folded into emf.edit.ui

Any volunteers?

Regards

Ed Willink
