Thanks. Right now it seems to be complicated for the end user, but I can
see the benefit of the current solution. The problem will be if you
someone will write 3rd party plugins, for the end user of that plugin
it will be not so easy to install.
Now back to the Projectviews plugin. My tests shown that it works with
- when you save a new view (save as), it will warn that the view already
exists, altough it is not.
- if there was no view saved yet, the save as should simply overwrite
the first view, otherwise you'll get an empty view in the Projectviews
- the real problem is with restoring the view on startup/loading of the
project. This interferes with the current behavior that files that were
opened when a project was closed are restored on startup. So if I have
a default view with files A and B, and meantime I open files C and D,
close the project, reopen the project I get A, B, C, D opened instead
of A and B. The ugly solution would be to close all files before
opening the default view, the better solution would be to disable the
autoloading of last closed files. When dealing with BR #89400 I get
the following idea:
"Quanta opens the files saved in the default project view when
opens the webprj file.
It might make sense to create a special project view which is updated on
every project closing and if the user sets this view as the default
one, it will behave as you ask. But we cannot just automatically save
and restore what was last opened as it would work against the project
Right now KDevelop works against the project views. ;-) So I suggest
always having a view that cannot be deleted by the user (should show up
only in the config dialog) called "Last opened files". This view is
updated every time the project is closed and if this is the one
selected as a default view, the last opened files are restored.
KDevelop itself (the project manager or who does it) should not bother
with restoring opened files.
What is missing from project views is that it doesn't save/restore
information about the opened non-text documents (help pages or so),
while currently KDevelop restores them as well.
All in all I suggest to put the plugin in CVS. I'd say it can already go
to kdevelop as it will be a platform specific plugin and it will not
hurt if people can test in 3.5. ;-)
