I looked in the Buildship docs and stories, and there isn’t much there that gives a feeling for the overall set of features that Buildship is going to provide.
I was wondering whether these random features would get into it, in no particular priority order:
Search for dependencies and available versions on configured repositories
View of effective dependencies tree
Executing “open-declaration” while cursor is on project name in settings.gradle or any build.gradle, would open the “build.gradle” for that project
Concerning completion, I found the following statement in the “editor stories” page:
“Support code completion in Gradle build files for project properties and methods, tasks properties and methods, dependency configuration, plugins, etc.”
I would hope this statement could be expanded to be more specific. I’m particularly concerned about getting completion in plugin extension blocks. I believe that is one area that will be more volatile and likely to change, as opposed to other areas of the build script that could potentially get completion support.
