Intent

Presentation

Intent is a newly proposed open source project under Mylyn. Intent 0.7 is available as part of the Eclipse Juno Release Train.

Intent allows teams to easily keep documentation up-to-date with any development artifact (e.g. models, code, environment). The documentation, integrated with other Eclipse tools, then becomes truly useful and is no longer a burden that developers have to carry to please their customers or project manager.

Don't know where to start? Check out our useful links or the project summary.

Based on Donald Knuth's Literate Programming concepts and allowing collaborative work around design tasks, Intent was presented at Agile ALM connect 2012 and EclipseCon Europe 2012.

"Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs: Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to do, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do."

Donald Knuth, Literate Programming (1984)
