Version 89 (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, CPAN6, Rakudo, Parrot, Mod_parrot, DBDI, git/svn, MySQL/PostgreSQL, FreeBSD
which is the toolchain I will keep an eye on, helping me to build web applications in perl6.


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 and get output to the output window
? wish the output window supported input prompt as if the code were run in a shell
? wish use v6; or perl6 specific syntax in file was enough to have status bar reflect: application/x-perl6 mime
? wish the sidescrollbar in the edit area is set to auto, so it only displays if the content is wide enough to require

Plugin Ideas (these projects I should do myself and not expect anyone else to do them
? wish: file explorer panel and VCS integration and project management via plugin
? wish: visual memory manager in the gui for debugging and understanding memory usage
? wish: cpan integration - gui for core and extras module management and dependency relations and install log
? wish: integrated parrot/rakudo/perl5 upgrade/downgrade/activator/deactivator mechanism
? wish: additional languages come as plugins
? wish: GUI designer - wxwidgets especially
? wish: SQL database designer/manager
? wish: UML designer with stub code generator
? wish: application starter guide(gui, script, daemon, systray app, webapp)
? wish: application mode, the gui becomes context aware
? wish: gui app, module, distribution deployment manager
? wish: lightweight web&database server with mod_parrot support for testing
? wish: padre developer community, for support services

. the language specific module, will sit on top of a shared mod_parrot, using a shared parrot, on a shared apache


? when can & will CPAN5 module owners begin to create CPAN6 counterparts?
. This needs to take off we all know that, but is there anyone driving this initiative?
