Hello Eclipse! The name is Sunku and I have been an on and off member of Eclipse for a long time. The first time I visited the site was back when EE and Eclipse Stable along with the whole old script system. I officially joined when EO 2.0 was released or around that time. I have watched time and time again as I see the idea of an Eclipse coded completely in Java and I feel like this is a great idea, but most people end up tossing the idea aside for one reason or another.
I have been practicing my programming skills over the years and feel confident in creating a whole engine, as I have prototypes sitting around on my computer. But the reason I come here with this information is I was wondering if you guys would like to see a Java ‘overhaul’ of Eclipse? I would use EO 2.0 as my base Eclipse feature wise, and work from there. I would be 100% dedicated to the engine and look into any thread I create for it for ideas and criticism. My vision for this, is to make it fairly noob friendly whether it’s for those that don’t know any programming or someone that wants to get a little dirty in the code so there would be a fair amount of code documentation and all that.
I appreciate all responses.
