* What is it?
DCD is a client and server program that work together to provide
autocomplete suggestions and function call tips to almost any
text editor that supports scripting or plugins.
* Who is it for?
People who would like autocomplete, but don't want to give up
their favorite editor for an IDE.
* Where is it?
* What does it look like?
There's a short demo video on Youtube:
* What editors does it work with?
Textadept, Kate/KDevelop, Vim, and Emacs. The Textadept
integration script is the reference implementation.
* This sounds a lot like GoCode
It does, doesn't it?
* Does it work?
Yes and no. DCD is fairly new, and not all of the features you'd
expect from a D autocompletion engine are present. I do feel that
it's enough of an improvement over not having autocomplete to
make this alpha announcement.
* Should I file bug reports in this announcement thread?
No. Add them here:
