Just my thoughts.
Before getting into the large scale IDE I would rethink the initial
simplistic view and why wrappers like eclipse fail for this.
Basically for an nice GUI IDE you would like to be able to draw from a set
of widgets and place them inside another container. The problem with eclipse
(and others) are multiple: 1) You need to deploy the application to the
laszlo server to compile and return you your widget. This (obviously) takes
time. 2) How do you present the widget ? You cannot really provide and drop
target on a flash object. A possible solution would be to extract the
compiler out of tomcat so the widget can be compiled but then you have to
also provide a runtime target that supports the drag & drop. Html may be
getting close but it isnt there yet. A different approach is needed...
Might it be possible to build an IDE using laszlo AS the IDE ?
