Prefered Amiga IDE

Post by amyren » Sat May 04, 2019 9:51 pm

Being a newbie at HollyWood and programming in general, I just installed HollyWood 8 both for windows and on the Amiga (winuae/amikit).
The Windows version does have a nice IDE, and the Amiga version relies on external editors.

I did install the Cubic IDE demo, which is restricted to 500 lines, but still gives a good preview of what to expect from the full version.
But how well adapted is it to HollyWood version 8? A quick look suggest that this probably is not quite up to the standards of the windows IDE.

Or are there other or better options available for the Amiga?

I started to write a Hollywood script that would generate syntax highlighting files for various editors with a preview tab but without a steady job, I've been forced to conserve my coding time. If you want to continue the project, let me know.

I love to code in Cubic IDE and I think it's well up to the job with the latest Hollywood. The rare occasions I've quickly tried the Windows IDE I've felt it's lacking compared to Cubic IDE, so I guess it's more about what you get used to :) I don't know what I'd be missing in Cubic IDE currently... maybe folding code blocks would be one compared to, for example, Flow Studio (which is also getting Hollywood support in the future).

I fear that probably is way above my current HollyWood skills, but thanks for having faith in a beginner :)

Yeah, And I am looking very forward to that.

FWIW, basic UTF-8 support could be hacked into Cubic IDE through the XPK interface but now that FlowStudio is going to support Hollywood, that's probably no longer necessary...

But FlowStudio is only for MorphOS so perhaps is still necessary.

For OS4 there's also a MUI port of VIM now which seems to support Hollywood, see here: https://amigaworld.net/modules/news/art ... oryid=8372

I really like using Codebench for OS4.
(It doesn't have UTF-8 support either, though.)

Flow new version is here :)

I am learning a bit how this works. I created a new workspace, saved and I did add a *.hws file in my project.

I tried to compile and always I get this error

Error: File Path of the file *.hws doest not exist!

Any ideas ? :)

thanks for your help
