Some thoughts on Padre

[ #38222 ]
Yesterday I went to an meeting at Tel Aviv University to hear a lecture by Gabor Szabo on Padre.

Other than meeting Gabor and Shlomi Fish in person and a few other mongers (all really nice people), I did not hear a lot of new things about Padre (since I already dabbled with it a bit) but some things were very interesting. Basically at some point, Gabor suggested that Padre could be used as a instrument for small GUI applications. That caught my attention.

Imagine having a CVS/SVN/git interface that helps you update your repository from within Padre. Imagine having a plugin that creates a textual graph of your program, imagine a plugin that creates a visual graph of your program.

Now, recall Firefox extensions. This is what Padre allows you.

  • .. or planning plugins for Autodia, nytprof and Devel::Cover. .. and I'm working on an emacs mode plugin tonight - once I've got that done I'll be using Padre more and have a good excuse for working on the other plugins.

    Even if I don't find myself switching from emacs I *do* plan to use it to point/click handle the many many perl dev tools and modules available in a nice GUI.
