Title: An alternative IDE
Post by: mdelfede on Mar 17, 2017, 10:50 am
Hi, I'm developing an IDE for Arduino end compatible boards... it's almost complete.
Here a couple of screenshots.
Some features :
- can open multiple projects at once, in different tabs
- display projects and library files in left panes, and be used to look and edit them
- colors and fonts fully customizable
- completely written in C++
- embedded boards and libraries managers and, in short, example manager to fetch examples from a repository
- fully compatible with arduino IDE additional packages and libraries

By now I'm posting daily updates on Fishino group on Facebook; in short I'll prepare a web page and a github repository for it.

So what your saying is Java has been removed? That sounds reasonable to me. Will it build on Linux?. If the IDE could also build the projects from an [optional] makefile then I think that would be something worth doing.

Hi Ron,

FishIDE is for Linux, WIndows and Max OSX (latter still in testing phase).
By now there are just 3 pre-built versions, available here :    for windows  for Linux, built on Ubuntu 16.04, 64 bit for MaxOSX, built on Sierra, requires XQuartz to run

If somebody would like to test it, he's wellcome.
The sources will be available sometime later, it's still in fast development now.
No makefile, it's built using this toolkit :  which is needed to build it.
