I worked on using QtCreator IDE for LibreOffice : https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/15804
Thanks to Arnaud who finalized the gerrit validation, and endlessly motivated me to develop for LibreOffice.
Here is an album of screenshots (similar to Bjoern’s video with KDevelop) :
1 : Opening QtCreator with ‘sw’ project file
2 : In the locator (ctrl+k), you can search classes
3 : After choosing « SwInsertBookmarDlg » in locator
4 : There are others way to view code, here is the Class View (but I still don’t know how to open the ClassView on a specific class from the source code panel)
5 : Here are the predefined build settings
6 : To debug, just add a breakpoint in the code
7 : Then start the debugger (the green triangle with a bug) : QtCreator launches LibreOffice
8 : As soon as the breakpoint is reached, QtCreator is back to front with all graphical tools to debug
Tip : the default behavior for the green triangle buttons (run /debug) is to execute ‘make’ before ‘run’ or ‘debug’. But there are menus items ‘run without deploy’ and ‘debug without deploy’ that allows to run/debug last compiled version if you have already modified source code.
