Hi everyone,

I agree with this, it would be a shame not to have better IDE support for Scala in Netbeans.

We all know Caoyuan has done an awesome job and we are really grateful, but he is just one person. It would be great if more people would step up and seriously work on it. Be it Scala community, Oracle, Netbeans people or whoever is up to the task.

I'm not kidding when I say I would pay for this. How many people are interested? Wouldn't it be possible to create a www.kickstarter.com project where everybody chips in some cash and gather enough to pay someone to work on it for 6 months?

Is anyone interested? Am I crazy?

Thanks
Tomás

It's been a while since any news about the plugin for NetBeans came out, so I was wondering if it is still alive? I mean, will it be further developed?
There are some bugs in the current release, but I don't mean just fixing them with "further developed", but improving, adding things like refactor through projects,
better content-assistance (eg: type ctrl+space in any context and visible variables should be offered, not just the parameters to the method, this applies also
for visible methods: most of the time, to see the methods available  for "this" I have to input this.<ctrl+space> and then delete de "this." because I don't want it),
code completion for constructors so that when writing :

new java.io.File<ctrl+space>

I should see all its available constructors in order to choose one.

Other desirable features would be: Insert Code... -> Implement Method.., Insert Code... -> Override Method.., Insert Code... -> Delegate Method..


If the plugin wont be further developed (due to whatever reason), maybe its time to move onto another IDE?, it would be a shame since NetBeans is the IDE of
choise to many of us.

Cheers.

Sounds like a cool idea, I would definitely chip in.
