What ide you use for freebasic?

Postby E.K.Virtanen » Mar 31, 2006 16:19

I have used gedit since installed linux.
At start i used vb.net syntax colors but changed em as "my" fb style.
Works fine, but theres no quick key to compile/run code.
Alltho im pretty fine with using console. Pretty easy on linux, just up key to use for "fbc file.bas" and "./file"

Gedit is also simple and light to use so im happy. Alltho good alternatives would be nice to hear.

gedit or nano, depending on which box I'm on.

I got it working with wine but crashes when compiling with it.
Paths etc. are ok, but still crashes. Can you compile ok with yours one?

I personally use UltraEdit-32 + cmd.exe + GNU make on Windows and Emacs + bash + GNU make on Linux. A good text editor, a command line, and a make utility is close to the perfect development environment, in my opinion. Other people might have other opinions, though. :)

Would you be so kind as to lend us your syntax file for gedit? I tried making one once, but apart from it being long gone since my system wipe (a while back), I also had problems with some keywords highlighting and others not, and when I changed the order in which they were defined, those would highlight, and old ones would not!

I hate to sound like a beggar, but this is something I'd really appreciate.

SciTE is my choice on Linux. I modified the VB syntax highlighter, but I am told that the most recent release comes with a FreeBASIC syntax highlighter. It is fully modifiable via configuration files, with the result of the compile or build captured in the output window at the bottom of the screen. You will need to study the help file on how to configure it, so you should expect to spend a little time setting it up to your liking. You can also type commands like make directly into the output window, which is very convenient

I keep a terminal window open in the background for command line, and a file browser, much the same way that I would work in windows.

I used to use SciTE. But pressing the END key always took me to the end of the logical line (where the linebreak char is), not the physical wrapped line (as the majority of text editors do). That just drove me batty, and why I've given it up for the time being.

You have wrap turned on in a code editor? Never!

The help file says use Alt+End for end of display line in SciTE.

Nedit is my editor of choice. But there's no such thing as an IDE for FB in Linux...

And naturally I also have a term or several open. The command line is the heart of Linux use. Never leave home without it! ;) I don't see much use for a file browser, though...

Yeah, well, actually I haven't really found a Linux file browser I'm really happy about. (Not that I'm much happier with anything that Windows has to offer, either...) I used to use XFE, but now I mostly use a combination of console commands and Midnight Commander... Getting back to the roots. ;)
