Version 46 (modified by Casan, 7 years ago) (diff)



This page stores my ideas and thoughts and other stuff related to my use of Padre.
I will be commenting on releases and connect wishes/comments to tickets when possible.
I will be making comments on: Padre, Rakudo, Parrot, Mod_parrot, DBDI, git, MySQL/PostgreSQL, FreeBSD
which is the toolchain I will keep an eye on, helping me to build web applications in perl6.

PADRE on Windows Vista

padre-Standalone-5.10.0-alpha-1.exe released: 2009.01.18
. Installed on Windows Vista
. Created a shortcut C:\padre\perl\bin\padre.bat (with start in: c:\padre\perl\bin)
+ installer works
+ editor works
+ uninstall works

  • wish the console window temporarily necessary for starting padre will die soon
  • uninstaller does not remove c:\padre\cpan\histfile
  • wish the installation could be to any destination
  • wish the installation included parrot/rakudo released: 2009.01.16
. Installed on Windows Vista
. Created a shortcut C:\portable\perl\bin\portablepadre.bat (with start in: c:\padre\perl\bin)
+ editor works
+ comes with parrot 0.8.2
+ uninstalls easily, simply delete the c:\portable directory
+ files saved with .p6 extension is recognized in the status bare with : application/x-perl6 mime
+ RUN ctrl-F5 c:\portable\parrot\parrot.exe c:\portable\parrot\languages\perl6\perl6.pbc c:\lab\p6p6ext.p6 runs perl6 code

  • wish the console window temporarily necessary for starting padre will die soon
  • use v6; in file is not enough to have status bar reflect: application/x-perl6 mime
  • RUN F5 does not have an execution mode defined for files with .p6 extention

? wish F5 would autorecognize perl6 code and run it with the proper interpreter

Feature Requests These have not been targeted any milestones
? wish I don't have to save a file for running some fast test code in the editor
? wish there is an easy possibly integrated update mechanism
? wish padre come with parrot/rakudo and perl5
? wish padre is portable
? wish padre has file explorer panel and VCS integration and project management via plugin
