Subject [jira] [Commented] (BUILDR-72) Consolidate and improve IDE tasks
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2011 10:50:47 GMT


Peter Donald commented on BUILDR-72:

Since this issue was added, the idea plugin has been completely rewritten and significant
changes made to the eclipse plugin. Both have acquired more testing as part of this but more
tests would not hurt.

There is not a lot of "common" code that can be abstracted out of them as the extensions tend
to be very specific to the IDE. The common code that is useful across extensions has already
been introduced as part of buildr or as external libraries. As such I don't think that there
is any value in pursuing this further at this stage.

> Right now we have separate tasks for each IDE, which results in a lot of code duplication,
inconsistent behavior, not to mention total and absolute lack of testing.
> What we need:
> - A framework for writing IDE tasks that handles all the common behavior, so improvements
are rolled to all IDEs simultaneously.
> - A way to extend IDE tasks to modify generated files from code, so you don't have to
manually edit those after running Buildr.
> - Re-generate files whenever a build file (buildfile, build.yaml, etc) changes.
> - Tests, tests and more tests.
