Another DLTK Mini-HOWTO coming soon [message #8546] Thu, 19 July 2007 10:32 Go to next message

Hi folks,

We are sorry again about lack of attention to the newsgroup and mailing
list. We are working on this our problem and from now I hope we'll
answer on your questions in time.

As you can see there are really a lot of questions like "how to
implement <feature-name-here> with a DLTK". The best answer to such
questions would be a documentation, but unfortunately we don't have
such. So, I decided to write not a big, but I think useful in practice,
document with a name like "Mini-HOWTO: Implement modern IDE features
with a DLTK". I plan to consider main DLTK features like completion,
navigation, search etc. and write in short about main classes and
extension points related to this. I think, it should take not more than
a couple of days, so in the nearest future I promise to publish it.

Thanks for your interest in DLTK,
Mikhail Kalugin

Please have a look at http://www.eclipse.org/articles to learn how minimal,
but concise documentation by examples can be written. Besides pretty
pictures and code fragments you should explain, WHY steps are necessary and
HOW they can by generalized so that one can understand how to do things
that do not exactly copy your python/whatever interpreter.

Does the title "Another DLTK Mini-HOWTO" imply that some HOWTO already
exists? If yes, where?

Please consider to document the main classes and extension points that are
needed to get started, before documenting those related to implementing
modern features.

Is a couple of day more like O(7) or O(365)? I'm asking because in the
meantime I think that I can more efficiently implement all features myself
than waiting for documentation. Usually you spend less time coding software
yourself than understanding undocumented code.
