GitHub repo: https://github.com/idanarye/vim-dutyl
The main problem with my Vim plugin for DCD(placed inside
the DCD repo) is the need to set the import paths manually.
It was a manual task that the user had to do: DCD doesn't
know the import path the current project is using. Vim
doesn't know either.
Luckily - DUB knows. So instead of separate Vim plugins for
different tools, each operating it's own tool alone, I
wanted to create one plugin that'll operate both DUB and
DCD - one that can get the list of import modules from DUB
and send it to DCD. That's how Dutyl was born.
Currently, Dutyl's only features are using DCD for
autocompletion and for DDocs, but it has a module system
that allows it to add other tools, either to get more
functionality or to get backup for features that some tools
can't support for specific projects. Like dependency
injection but with a real usecase: for projects that don't
use DUB, Dutyl can back up to a manually written list of
import paths saved in a hidden file in the project's dir.
I'm open for suggestions for other tools and features to
add to Dutyl(write them here, or preferably open GitHub
issues with them)
How does dutyl know where to look for dub.json? It doesn't
seem to find it on my system.
It looks for a file named "dub.json" in the current folder.
If it can not find it, it looks for "package.json".
Ah, ok. Is it feasible to have it check up the directory tree
as well, like git does? I often find myself in this situation:
|- source <- vim pwd here
and so Dutyl misses myProject/dub.json
Seems a little weird to do so, considering that DUB itself does
not look up in the directory tree...
True, but it does make auto-complete work properly when you open
a single source file in a project, without having to manually set
the current directory. Vim's current directory (either global or
per-window) isn't part of my workflow*.
It could be an optional feature (a flag in .vimrc would be fine)
with an override (temporarily manually specify the location of
dub.json), but I think it makes a significant usability
I'm trying to think of a pathological case where it would be a
bad idea, but I can't think of anything realistic.
*Am I doing something very wrong here? If using (l)cd in vim is
part of almost everyone's workflow I should probably just start
using it more and stop complaining :)
