After having looked at most of the major translation tools for Delphi, the conclusion is:
– They all suck in different ways
– Those with visual tools, crash in different ways
– They are not really VCS friendly at all
– Team support is mostly not present
– Documentation is either near non-existent, incomplete, or outdated
– Prices go from “free”, to affordable to ridiculously expensive
There seems there is no bleeding edge tool here – only a lot of blood, sweat and tears – for the user of the tool.
Currently dabbling with VS 2017.3 and Linux – on the Raspberry. Maaan, my C++ is rusty! I miss Delphi in more ways than one. Tokyo is way smarter about third party libs in Linux than VS.
Does any of you use speech recognition tools for writing code? I. E. Dragon and similar?
I had this dream where I could talk to the IDE, and it was way smarter than just taking literal text input. I could talk to it like an AI, and say “add a private property string to the class, named “something” with setter but no getter. Initialize it in create to empty string.”
Now I can’t stop thinking about having such an IDE.

Happy 22nd Birthday, Delphi!

#Delphi 1 was released exactly 22 years ago, on Feb 14 1995, and that year we released our first Delphi components!
Not only did we have to wrestle that flaming ape for years, but now this other guy arrives, and there is noone to talk tactics with.
Marco Cantù Going in blind without a forum doesn’t really help.
Cheesy, but I like the spirit. It reminds me of the Borland commercials 🙂
