BOO! For Visual Studio 2010… (Alpha, but still a Boo!’able VS)

Visual Studio Gallery - Visual Studio Boo plugin


LAST UPDATED Friday, October 15, 2010

This is an alpha version with many gaps yet to fill. Here is a list of what you can do:

  • Create new/Open existing projects with Boo as programing language. Included are 2 project templates - Class Library and Console Program
  • Add new files to Boo projects. Included are templates for boo code file and a text file
  • Edit Boo code with standard VS Code Editor
  • Compile/Run/Debug solutions with a mix of Boo and non-Boo projects, including breaking execution, examining the variables, etc.

Here is what is missing and has to be added:

  • No intellisense support of any kind (code completion, quickinfo, etc)
  • Syntax colorization is incomplete and sometimes inaccurate
  • No breakpoint validation
  • ShowAll button in Solution Explorer does nothing
  • No support for Auto window
  • Matching braces is not supported

In other words you can do development, but productivity tools are not there yet. …


Just in time for Halloween! :P
