Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  4236
Submitted:  Jan 11 2005
Updated:  Mar 16 2008


Kate Symbol Viewer is a sidebar plugin for Kate that has been integrated in KDE since version 3.2.0.
It allows developers to view symbols (functions, macros and data types) from source code.
By clicking the parsed information you can easily browse the code.
At the moment the following languages are supported:
C/C++, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, XSLT, Tcl/Tk, Fortran

Feature list:
- List/Tree mode
- Enable/disable sorting
- Hide/Show Functions Parameters
- Can expand/collapse tree mode
- Auto-update on document change
- Code parsing is based on Kate highlighting


Improved PHP parser (thanks to Gef)
Improved Fortran parser (thanks to Louis). Support on/off parameters display as well
ANSI C89 supported
key navigation now handles Return key press

*** Added Ruby support

*** Added preliminary PHP support
*** Added XSLT support (thanx to Jiri Tyr)

- perl parser patch (thanx to josander)
- python supports multiline defs/classes
- sorting mode on popup menu

*** Added JAVA support
Basically it uses an improved version of the C++ parser. Not being a Java developer, I would kindly need any feedback from the users.
Following the changes:
- support for classes (not nested, sorry )
- fixes on comments also for macros
- support for inline functions

Configuration Page
- option to automatically expand nodes when in tree mode

This is a version for KDE-apps.org for the KDE 3.5.x users. The mainstream changes are applied only to the KDE 4 SVN trunk.

For a complete changelog please refer to KDE 4 SVN:
or KDE 3.5 branch:

Ciao Dragon Lord,

i nostri parenti riportano sempre un po' di problemi riguarda la stabilità dei
Kate con il tuo plugin.

Da report che abbiamo ci sono sempre un 1500-2000 kate al giorno che
necessitano di riavviare il nostro editor.

Ho provato ad effttuare alconi test con in situazioni "estreme", ossia con una
rete molto disturbata, ed effettivamente c'è stato un caso in cui il tuo plug in
si è bloccato, smettendo di accettare i dati.

Guardando dal log di mozilla (allegao) questo è avvenuto dopo la riga 24914

lKateViewerErrorFunc: instance 0x0 flags 0x1000000 code 0x130701aa

Visto la difficoltà nel riprodurlo, è possibile correggere il comportamento
del solo log ?


Scusa il mio taliano

Thank you for improving the python parser. This plugin is very, very useful - in navigating through someone else's code (of course, my code is easy enough to read without it, [duh])

 Bash parser...

 by spiros2907 on: May 13 2007

Hey this is great!!!

Just installed it and works like a charm. One thing though: there is no Bash parser. As I use kate for shell scripting, I think this would be really useful. All a shell scripting parser has to do is print the function names. Since it is this simple, an existing parser can be used: PHP

So in plugin_katesymbolviewer.cpp I changed :

else if (hlModeName == "PHP (HTML)" )


else if (hlModeName == "PHP (HTML)" || hlModeName == "Bash")

and it works.

Hope you find it useful to include in a future release.

Keep it up
Best regards

 in Kubuntu?

"has been integrated in KDE since version 3.2.0"

I'm using KDE 3.5.6 from the official Kubuntu 7.04 repositories and it seems like this plugin is called "c/c++ symbol viewer" and thusly only works for c/c++, I'm guessing, cuz it doesn't do anything when viewing Ruby files.

Do you know any way I can get this installed without having to compile from source?

Yeah, sure...you need to wait for KDE 4 ! LOL
I posted an improved version of the symbol viewer on kde-apps cause KDE 4 took longer than expected to be developed and moreover cause the KDE team doesn't allow me to commit any major change to the KDE 3.5.x mainline.

That's all. Hope it doesn't bother you to compile my plugin. By the way I use Kubuntu as well and it compiles beautifully.

 Feature Request

 by bugmenot1234 on: Nov 15 2007

Would it be possible to add an option to, say, "treat this file as if it's Java code"? I'm trying to use it for D, which, regrettably, is still not widespread enough to warrant a parser, even though kate _does_ have highlighting for it.
Anyway, since D is syntactically _somewhat_ close to Java, this would allow the symbol viewer to work at least partially.

Thanks for considering it.

Hi, in some kind of way you can already do what you'd like to do. The Symbol Viewer is based on Kate highlighting system, so if you select "Java" as highlighting method, the code will be treated as it was Java by the plugin as well.
If D is parsed well by symbol viewer, I can consider to extend it to D for the next release.
Thanks for your feedback !

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
