BooLangStudio: Boo in Visual Studio

time to read 1 min | 97 words

A few days ago, the BooLangStudio was announced in the Boo mailing list, bringing Boo support into Visual Studio.

Below you can see several screen shots. And you can find out more about it here.

This is a very promising move, especially since I soon have to write my tooling chapter :-)

Of course, this is still very early in the game, but it is good to see progress in this area again.

Now all we need is R# support!

Stefan Lieser

VS support for boo is great news, but as Bill said we need R# support too. I would contribute to this. Since boo is open source maybe we can use the parser so that a minimum plugin that resolves references may be possible. As I know from my NHibernate plugin the main problem is missing documentation of the R# open api.

Ayende Rahien

That would be absolutely great!

James Gregory

Thanks for the promo Ayende :)

One of my goals for BooLangStudio is to eventually get R# support, but we're getting the basics down first.

Shawn Neal

Does this work with Brail?

Krzysztof Koźmic

How would Boo plugin for ReSharper be called? BooSh? ;)
