MonoDevelop addin: Feedback on Compiler Options UI

Postby nerdzero » Thu Aug 02, 2012 8:46 pm

I've been playing around with putting some Cobra-specific options into the "Project Options > Build > Compiler" panel in MonoDevelop. Take a look at these screens. What do you guys think?

I wasn't able to put all the options in there but I think these might be the most useful. I'm not too sure about having a section for the back-end native compiler but I thought it would be convenient for those actually working on the compiler. But, if there's already a bunch of scripts already made up for building the compiler with various options, it might not be that useful and just confuse newcomers to the language. Right now, there's just enough code to get the panel to show up in MonoDevelop so not much effort is lost from changing things at this point.

Thoughts?

This looks great. I would just say that since people will be changing the back-end less frequently, I would put that at the bottom and put the more frequently used items up top.
