On Mon 24-Jul-2017, I gave a presentation at the BigProof event in Cambridge. Title: The Isabelle Prover IDE (PIDE) after 9 years of development, and beyond. Abstract:
The main ideas around Isabelle/PIDE go back to summer 2008. This is an overview of what has been achieved in the past 9 years, with some prospects for the future. Where can we go from here as Isabelle community? (E.g. towards alternative front-ends like Visual Studio Code; remote prover sessions “in the cloud”; support for collaborative editing of large formal libraries.) Where can we go as greater ITP community (Lean, Coq, HOL family)?
Here are some notable VSCode projects that were briefly mentioned in the talk:
- Isabelle/VSCode by Makarius Wenzel
- VSCoq by C. J. Bell (MIT)
- Lean for VSCode by J. Roesch (Univ. Washington) and others
