Description Petr Jiricka 2009-03-23 18:44:20 UTC
Currently we have several project types which have a notion of "running an ad-hoc build action", for example: - Run Ant Target action for Ant projects - Run/Debug Rake Task action for Ruby - Run Grails Command action for Grails - Custom -> Goals (Run Maven) action for Maven - Make Target -> Add Target action for C++ However, all these actions have a very different UI and there are very few unifying UI concepts. It would be useful to think this through and unify the UI where possible and practical, for example: 1. There could be a single keyboard shortcut for these actions. Currently, only Ruby has a shortcut assigned (Ctrl+Shift+R), others actions do not. 2. Have a common way of selecting a target to run, narrowing the selection as one types etc. Currently, Maven, Ruby and Grails have the notion of narrowing the selection as you type, Ant and C++ do not.
