The IDE Meta-tooling Platform, IMP for short, is currently in the incubation stage.
For the purpose of IMP, we define three classes of people:
- A User is a programmer that uses an IDE produced using IMP
- An IDE developer is a programmer that constructs an IDE using IMP
- An IMP developer is a programmer that helps in the development of IMP
Users generally are not exposed to IMP; IMP is an implementation detail of programming language specific IDE support.
IDE developer resources
The latest news is that the IMP CQ process has started and the sources for IMP are prepped for import into Eclipse.org version management.
