I am new to the beam community and currently start making myself
familiar with the code. I quickly found the contribution guide and was
able to clone the code and build beam using maven.
The first obstacle I faced was getting the code build in eclipse. I
naively imported as existing maven projects but got lots of compile
errors. After talking to Dan Kulp we found that this is due to the apt
annotation processing for auto value types. Dan explained me how I need
to setup eclipse to make it work.
I still got 5 compile errors (Some bound mismatch at Read.bounded, and
one ambiguous method empty). These errors seem to be present for
everyone using eclipse and Dan works on it. So I think this is not a
To make it easier for new people I would like to write a documentation
about the IDE setup. I can cover the eclipse part but I think intellij
should also be described.
I already started with it and placed it in /contribute/ide-setup. Does
that make sense?
I currently did not link to it from anywhere. I think it should be
linked in the contribute/index and in the Contribute menu.
