The class browser is located in the side pane and lists functions,

Python, HTML, XML/Mallard/DocBook, Diff, Ruby and Markdown.

Subject: How does it compare to gedit-source-code-browser-plugin ?
Date: Thu, 12 Jul 2012 20:28:22 +0200
Hello,

I'm the maintainer of gedit-source-code-browser-plugin, which does in
principle more or less the same thing (ctags-based too).

When I decided to (use and) package it, I first looked at the possible
alternatives, and I preferred it to gedit-classbrowser, which I had also
tried. Honestly, I don't remember why.

I clearly do not mean that you shouldn't package gedit-classbrowser3g,
but I'd be curious of knowing what features it has which
gedit-source-code-browser-plugin lacks.

bye

Pietro

gedit-classbrowser3g comes with additional parsers, so it supports
more languages than ctags (XML, HTML, diff, Markdown). The ctags
output format has some limitations for languages with nested
definitions like Python. The gedit-source-code-browser-plugin can't
show e.g. the relationship of function definitions inside functions.
For gedit-classbrowser3g an Python parser was written, that further
can show imports and instance attributes.
An other difference is how the tags are sorted. The
gedit-source-code-browser-plugin groups them by type (Classes,
Variables, Members, Functions, …), gedit-classbrowser3g shows the tags
in the order as they occur in the source.
gedit-classbrowser3g provides menuitems to jump to next/previous tag
and has a context menu in the sidepane.
When the cursor moves in the editor, the tag is automatically selected
in the sidepane and the subtree expanded.

Regards, B.C.

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging gedit-classbrowser3g. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

This is an automatic email to change the status of gedit-classbrowser3g back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in packaging gedit-classbrowser3g, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 672484 ITP: gedit-classbrowser3g -- Class Browser for gedit
 owner 672484 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <672484@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
