Hi QtC devs.
I'm a C++ developer that 3 years ago started a job with Ruby/Web, so to
not loss my C++ skills and to continue to use the IDE I love I started
RubyCreator, a plugin to QtC that add support to Ruby on QtC.
I use it on my daily work since then and add features when I have time
and motivation to do so, Orgad Shaneh help me with patches adapting my
plugin to the frequent QtC API changes (since I usually only catch
these changes when ArchLinux updates QtC), so he also gave me the
suggestion to try to push my plugin upstream, this would:
- Reduce the headaches of adapt my code to the frequent QtC API changes.
- Solve the problem of windows/mac compilation/distribution.
- Have more users :-), some friends of mine use mac and refuse to waste
time compiling things.
Ok, so I ask you guys if the QtC devs have some interest in accept this
plugin upstream, if so, some things need to be adjusted beforehand.
- Convert file naming code style to QtC one.
- Convert general code style to QtC one (I think it's already done).
- Review all the code before let it merged (of course), since I
probably missused some QtC API.
If there is not interest, I'm fine too, and I'll just keep the
development as it is now.
