Does anybody here use semantic merge ( I think its a really neat idea, though its effectively a language-specific merge tool. They support some of the bigger langauges, but their support claims that theyre front-end is fairly pluggable, meaning theres a fairly simple API to get it to work with other languages (IE kotlin), has anybody done this/would want to do this?
after i finished my class in compilers as an under graduate, I remember thinking I could do my masters degree on a concept like this. It was a really strange combination of excitement and cresfallen-ness to discover that not only have other people had this idea, but that somebody even tried to make a product out of it
