Gobby functionality
« on: August 09, 2007, 11:14:43 pm »
First, sorry for my bad english ;)

Yes... my idea for a new feature of Code::Blocks is to implent a gobby-like-functionality, or even a plugin to work with Gobby from inside Code::Blocks.

I think that would make development in groups much easier.

Gobby is an Open-Source texteditor where multiple persons can work at a document at the same time.

Hi !

Well, I'm not sure I really understand Gobby...
How do you compile a file being edited by anyone else ?

I think it should be possible for every user to save and compile the file at every time, but only on his computer.

Actually I gave Gobby a try a month ago and thought it would be nice to have a collaborative plugin for Code::Blocks, but I still think SVN is a better choice.

The concept is interesting, but I found it quite problematic for source code.

If you feel like writing the plugin, go ahead. A really good open-source collaborative editor is still missing (Gobby needs more development and the plugin for jEdit was really problematic to get working).
