Camouflage plugin

This is my favorite plugin, but has not been updated in over a year. Is
it very hard to make the changes to make it compatible with the current
API? I know nothing about IntelliJ plugins, but I would be more than
happy to give it a try if you wanted to walk me through it.

Do you fancy speleo?
:)


I haven't touched IDEA in months, so I was dragging my feet about
upgrading the plugin to the new openAPI. I also need to relearn IDEA on
MacOS - my PC died -, where it's much less user-friendly (no Alt-..
shortcuts: ouch).

Anyway, on Saturday I restarted the project, tested launching a 2nd
instance under MacOS, installed Clover, etc... I made a promise to
myself to work on it at least 1 minute every week day, till it's published.
I still wonder if I shouldn't restart from scratch!?

Alain,

Courage! As I promise you before, I will put out a version of the TDD plugin if you do your part ;)
Before that I need to release the multi-pattern support of the JUnit plugin (so you can use it...) and clean up the clearcase plugin so people can start contributing towards it to, than I can work on...

You get the point: you are not alone in that situation ;-P

How much work does it take to convert to the new API?

Hard to say.
It started with failing tests, then it wouldn't compile anymore...

I'm first trying to make the tests pass, with an old version of the
openAPI.
Then, I'll move to the current one.
Then I'll make a decision, this week, to fix, or start from scratch.

The first version was trivially simple.
Then I added options, to cover more ground.
Then I added an automatic mode - unpublished-, to work in a smoother way.
(That's when the shit started moving in the direction of the fan :) )
Then bugs started poping up, and the PsiViewer started crashing on my
using it.
Then..

Starting from scratch could be a good idea..
(I still have the tests - 500+ -, and the testing framework extension I
built.)


If I don't meet a truck in an inappropriate way, this project is back on
tracks.
