Durch den schleichenden Rückzug von IBM aus dem Eclipse-Projekt scheinen nun andere IDE-Hersteller den Takt bei den Innovationen vorzugeben. Die für Eclipse zuständige Open-Source-Community muss ihren meritokratischen Ansatz überdenken.
LiveCode brings three key things to your development process: the interface, the language and live coding. You start with the interface. Get going by opening a new project and dragging items onto it. A button, a field, a scrollbar… whatever your app needs. Play about with them a bit. Resize, rearrange, change the color, add some pretty drop shadows. Make it look funky and just the way you want it.
Now the language comes in. It’s English. You add it to your objects to make them do what you want them to do. For example writing:
You've probably heard that Android is free and open source. But that's not entirely true, and the team behind Replicant wants to change that. Replicant is an independent version of Android that includes no proprietary software whatsoever. But the Replicant team doesn't like the term open source. They prefer the term "free software," because to them, Replicant is all about freedom.
