Would you like a dockable interface for Val(a)ide?

GDL is the Gnome Development Library. This library include dock widgets for create an interface like Anjuta, Eclipse or Monodevelop.

I don't like specialy this kind of interface, but I think it might be interesting for users to be able to modify the interface as it wishes.

Thank you to vote so that I know your preferences (the poll is on the left).

You can also discuss about advantages and disadvantages of the dockable interfaces.

Thank's in advance for your participation.

Fullscreen mode

After completed the API documentation (with my poor english, but it's better than nothing...), I just commited a new fullscreen mode (from gedit 2.26).

This mode allow to hide all ui components (menu, toolbar and statur bar) for get a maximizing working area, and you can show the toolbar in approaching the mouse at the top of the screen.

Goto definition and calltips

With the autocompletion, Val(a)IDE has a vala parser. With this parser, it's simple to add some helper functions.

Today I added the goto definition feature and calltips that displays the signature of a function when you open a parenthesis.

Autocompletion

Val(a)IDE have already a very simple autocompletion plugin (it just list all word in the current file), I added a better parser (based on vala parser and ctags annalyse) to list the methods, properties, signals, ... of the current object.



It's a first step, this plugin still needs some improvements (speed, completion for local variables, ...) but that allow add other features like go to the definition or help tooltips.

Note: press the Control+Enter keys to show the completion popup.

New plugin : file browser

I added a new plugin for fast access to files:



You can open a project directly in the file browser.

I have planned some improvements for this plugin: issue #13

Start page

I have added a start page for access rapidly to recent files/projects.

This feature was an opportunity to improve the abstraction of documents to include glade in the interface.
