Writing autocomplete plugin for IDE's

Post by sandeepkumar » Mon Oct 22, 2018 9:58 am

Hi,As of now , other than visual studio , and netbeans , very few IDE's have given me satisfactory auto complete(or code suggestion?) features. Yeah they do perform to an extent , but i would atleast like to try my hand at making one , that suits to my taste. I have experience in java , c , C++ , C# and have learnt the basics of wxwidgets(with the intention of writing a plugin for Code::Blocks) . But , where do i start with the basics of creating and writing plugins?
Thank You.

Hi,

The generic answer is probably that the details will vary a lot between IDEs, so look at your target IDE.

However, have you looked at CodeLite? It was started as an IDE specialising in code-completion, and I'd be surprised if you were unhappy with it. And if you are, the owner, eranif, cares immensely about code-completion and is quick to fix bugs/accept patches related to it.

Regards,

David
