Welcome to the Scala IDE Developer Documentation

This document is intended for developers interested in exploring with the Scala IDE sources to contribute to the project.

Feel free to ask questions related to the Scala IDE internals and discuss ideas for enhancements and bug fixes on the scala-ide-dev mailing list.



This documentation could use your help to grow and be refined. It is managed as a GitHub project at http://github.com/scala-ide/docs. Use the different available tools to communicate with development team.


The documentation is redacted using reStructuredText markup language (reST). As with other markup languages, reST is the moral descendant of DocBook, and intended to be a lightweight way to structure text without having to deal with the presentation details involved in HTML. You can find references and tools for editing reST on its wikipedia page.
