When is the IDE?

Although you are making progress in R#, I still missing the functionalities in IDEA. When will be the EAP for IDEA# :)? Have you already start using it or it is still a story?

They've said elsewhere that there is currently no plan for an IDE at this
time.

... which is a shame. Creating an IDE for C# does not seem to be an impossible task at all, see SharpDevelop. They could even modify IntelliJ (I don't mind writing C# applications in a Java IDE) or provide plugins for it.

After all, compiling .NET assemblies is extremely easy.

Hello Lars,

if IDE was only about compiling .NET assemblies, we would have released it
a while ago. But actually compiling
support is probably the simplest part of a full-fledged IDE. There are also
debugger, GUI designer, database support etc. -
all this requires a large amount of resources which we simply don't have.
And also the IDE should offer a big advantage over
Visual Studio in some of its functionality and provide at least the same
level of support in others, otherwise nobody will
need it.

Concerning SharpDevelop, I doubt that many people do use it for production.
I may be wrong, of course.

Hello Lars,

If it were only about compiling assemblies... There is a lot of into IDE
than just converting C# code into assemblies. Debugger, generators (e.g.
XSD), designers (WinForms, ASP.NET), IIS integration (ASP.NET), DBMS integration
(at least MS SQL Server) and much more.

As for SharpDevelop, they are developing for about 6 (SIX) years (see http://www.sharpdevelop.com/OpenSource/SD/Changes.aspx)
and yet it is not something even close to VS + ReSharper.

It's really a bad news. Previosly I learnt they were working on it. As a previous java developer, I really miss the days of developing with pleasure using idea...

Actually I don't mind using the express version of VS to draw UI's, and using a good IDE to write my codes. After all coding might take 80% of my time.

Ok...

So what is it about VS that you don't like ?


Personally... I think M$ have done a dam good job of VS2005.

Add in a program like R# (doesn't cost much for the benefits it offers) or even one of jetbrains competitors solutions.. and you have a winning solution.... not forgetting that Vs has a very extensible plug-in architecture !!!

That's just my 0.02p worth though :)

It's hard to put it in words. If you have used IDEA, you will know what I'm saying, though vs2005 is a big step from 2003, it's still far from java ide.
