(70/161) 2894379 - Project Templates

I think it would be cool if ProjectViewer came with templates for starting new projects. For example, creating a new Java project would create a src/ directory and a default build.xml file. The main problem with creating new projects in jEdit is that, if you need a buildfile, you either need to know exactly how to create one or go find one online, which can be a drag. Having new projects create a default buildfile would make this process much easier, and the templates could be extended to add new types of projects.

To go along with this, it would also be nice if jEdit natively supported a "Build Project" option. Console doesn't make any distinction between "Compile Current Buffer" and "Build Current Project," but the two are often very different (javac versus ant, for instance), and whether in Console or in ProjectViewer I think there should be a separate command to build projects.

What I'm suggesting is basically ProjectWizard functionality, but with more extensibility and integration with ProjectViewer, so that you don't need to create your project twice.

ProjectWizard is also java-centric. This would be useful for many languages. Upvoted.
