Making your coding less productive :)
« on: December 17, 2005, 11:26:45 pm »
Nah, it'sn't off-topic :D

The idea is to make an IRC plugin for Code::Blocks, so you can code and be in your favorite IRC channel at the same time.

I just remember the old days when I used the Allegro library and hung in the #allegro channel. It wasn't really productive sometimes, but when I needed help I had the ppl in there handy, to help me :)

Code::Blocks got an un-official channel in IRC and the few times I've been there it's really lonely. I dunno how helpful it could really be, but it's just an idea.

What do you think? :P

Using gaim with MSN and AOL, and never lonely 8)

There is probably no good reason against an IRC plugin, but it still strikes me as strange. Personally, I prefer a messenger tool to chat, and a programming tool to program, but that is just me.

Hello,

Interesting plugin, indeed :). Personally, I do not use too much chat tools (may be because no one would like to speak with me :)), but in case of need (bugs, crashes, etc.) they can be useful (rather better than emails).

I have nothing against such a plugin, but i just wonder if the users will begin to ask for MSN, AOL, etc. plugins :D.

Why would I want a chat plugin in an IDE? Let it be the best IDE, and not a 'jack of all trades, master of non' pile of bloat ware.

I used to use allegro too before I moved on.

Well if we're about being less productive, how about a FreeCell plugin?

instead of having hearts, and spades, etc, we'll have arrays :P

The FreeCell plugin sounds good too, or a Solitaire one.

A Poker plugin! Nice way to be less productive and lose money at the same time :)

For what I'm seeing it's no being really accepted. Less work for me, I guess :)

What I like to have is an OS plugin :P A replacement for windows ;)
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring

Why don't you modify cbEditor to support text-mode Quake? Or nethack... :)

Hello,

May be we can do something similar to Eclipse:

C::B comes with a set of standard plugins that add specific functonalities, code formatting, code completion and so on. These standard plugins are selected on the basis of usefulness, quality, etc.

From the other side, all the other plugins are listed in a separate website (e.g., Announcement for plugins/patches) and can be downloaded as the user wishes. May be later we can provide a specific website that collect plugins as the one for Eclipse plugins

So, you can develop and provide whichever plugin you want without having to fight (not too much :)) to have it directly added to C::B.

Best wishes,
Michael
