Project 5: Learn How to Write a Graphic User Interface (GUI)
This tutorial presents an overview on how to design and develop an integrated development environment (IDE). Excerpts in the accompanying project guides are taken from the book, IDE Design and Development, Volume 1, First Edition.
Some of the best programming languages come with outstanding Integrated development environments (IDE). The best IDEs include a code editor, compiler, linker, assembler, debugger, context sensitive help, toolboxes, libraries, application wizards, and documentation. Well-designed IDEs should be easy to use and understand. They also should be well-supported, updated, and consistently maintained.
An integrated development environment (IDE) is a software application that provides facilities for writing code, saving and opening code files, building projects (i.e. compiling and linking), and running and debugging programs. We build a simple graphical user interface (GUI) editor for the Adagé programming language. The Adagé IDE contains a source code editor, build tools, and a debugger. Future versions of the IDE will include intelligent code completion, version control, and a class browser, object browser, and class hierarchy diagram for use in object-oriented programming.
