    Hi,
    I started to write a little IDE for Bukkit Plugins. I wanted that you can do lots oft things without coding, but if you want to add own code, you can do that. If you like my idea, please support me on GitHub:

    You can download it here or compile it yourself, but there aren't many working features...
    Bye!

    I feel like this would be better off as an IntelliJ plugin or something to that effect.

    Not to be rude or anything, but I doubt your IDE will ever be as good as one being produced by a large company, and, as such, it doesn't really serve a purpose.

    Garris0n Maybe i don't have to call it IDE but Plugin Maker ?

    This. IntelliJ offers really good tools for writing code, and it would be a waste of effort to try and get close to that on your own. However, if you write a plugin for an existing IDE, you could add very specific functionality. For example, you could have plugin templates, maybe some auto-generated code etc. This way your plugin (for intelliJ/eclipse/netbeans/...) will ease development for others, while you don't have to reinvent the wheel on the subject of syntax highlighting etc :)

    Bertware Why don't you do it? I don't have the knowledge to write a eclipse Plugin (for example)... I would use it...

    I would assume because he doesn't want to. He is just pointing out that it would be a waste of time to write yet another Java IDE for a few extra features instead of adding those features onto an existing IDE.

    Also, you could learn how to write plugins for IDEs ;)

    nobiths I hope you're keeping a few things in mind; being:
    1) Actual error detection on runtime/when writing the code
    2) Compilation of the program, what compiler are you going to use? Javac or your own implementation?
    3) GUI-programming can be hard.
    4) Threading/concurrency
    5) People are not going to use this, if an IDE like Intellij or Eclipse can and probably will provide more features.

    If I were you I'd rather write a plugin for each IDE (being Eclipse, Intellij and NetBeans) and make that as nice as possible. That way people are enjoying both their favourite IDE and your tool. :)

    Writing an IDE is harder than you may think. I'd suggest you to open up your IDE and start writing down it's features. (Buttons, actual features like code completion etc, debug tools, redeployment, maven integration, git integration, gradle, groovy...)

    Anyways, good luck with your project, I hope it really becomes something :)

    CaptainBern 1. I think i will use javac 2. The Main GUI is nearly finished... 3. I think you guys didn't really understand what i try to programm.... Its a tool, where you can create plugins without coding but if the features are not enough, you can add code vor eddit the generated one... I will never try to write an IDE like eclipse or netbeans without a developer Team... Look at this: mcreator.pylo.si

    nobiths I don't give a star unless the project is something I am either really interested in, or it's either something that inspires me or contains extremely high quality code. In it's current state your projects meets neither of my "prerequisites" so I won't star it (yet).

    CaptainBern OK i totally understand this but at the the moment i dont have time (school :( ) but maybe I will upload New code tomorrow?! Did you look at the code? Why don‘t you help me with the development (if the layout is ready)?

    This is a pretty cool idea! So it will be a tool for someone who wouldn't know Java and Bukkit's API. But then someone who does know it can edit to actual source of it?

    nobiths I'm glad someone is actually trying to do this, I once had this same idea but have no idea where to get started...

    DJSkepter I understand you, i said already i didn't upload new code for a long time... Wait a month, then e-mail me if you are interested in helping me ;)

    nobiths Well, I did not exactly say that I wanted to work alongside with you. Since then when I first had the idea and now, I have grown in Java knowledge greatly and I believe I may be able to pull it off - a way to get people with very limited programming knowledge to create their own plugins.

    Worry not, I do not plan to steal the idea from you - continue with what you are doing. The things we are creating may seem similar but they are very different in a sense. By the way, I used something called the 'jsyntaxpane' to create the thing where you add (code) text.

    Looks like fun in the first place, thoug... what can one do with this? What type of plugins can you create without knowing much of java? I did not brainstorm too much this time on purpose...

    One thing i couldn't resist... one could trigger teleports by something and have a nice interface to set commands or actions to trigger it, also to alter the teleport locations including the data-management, including "highest block", relative, world spawn, ...
