Ada and Qt integration into Qt Creator



  • I was looking into adding Ada into Qt Creator but when I started to look at the tool set we have Ada was not included in MinGW, even though there are provisions to have the language. Also the Editor only allow C/C++ variations and not other languages. I can probably back fill the Ada part into the compilation toolset or make a new toolkit but getting the editor to recognize Ada (and I thought it use to allow for this years ago) seems to be an issue. I can write my own bindings to Ada and vice versa if needed. I see that QtAda is out of business and the webpage is gone. Any suggestions on how to integrate into the Qt Tool Kit set?



  • In Qt Creator 4.8 we introduce an experimental client for the "Language Server Protocol".

    Looks like there is at least some language server for Ada (https://github.com/reznikmm/ada-lsp, state unknown to me). That might work in our language client in Qt Creator 4.8.
    For highlighting you'll also need to install the highlighting spec file for Ada, Tools > Options > Text Editor > Generic Highlighter > Download definitions, find Ada and download.

    Regarding QtAda and integration with Qt in other ways, no idea.
