Hi Bean / Hanno;

How is the PropBASIC integration into Viewport going?

Hi!
Anything you would like to see?

I'm really close on an upgrade of ViewPort:
- improved editor- with full highlighting for PropBasic- including "Propeller Tool" alternating background colors for sections of code and indent guides
86410
- improved conduit- with support for Xbee and Bluetooth- as well as native support for full terminal support
- support for Mac and Linux- here's a screenshot of ViewPort running on Ubuntu:86411

I'm also still working on "something big" :)

Wow,

That's great Hanno!

Thanks for the screenshots

I am really looking forward to the release.

I'm going insane trying to figure out what it is!

Maybe a new optimizing compiler for PropBASIC?!?

Perhaps an awesome new feature for Viewport that does......?!?

Anyway, you don't need to say anything.

I'm a programmer too, and I know that you'll be done, when you're done.

That looks really great Hanno!
It looks like a will say goodbye to my long favored EditPlus3 IDE!
Cheers, Friedrich

Hanno,
Any thoughts about making a "free" version of viewport with just the basics.
Then it could be the "official" IDE for PropBasic.

The great thing about ViewPort is that I can update the PropBasic compiler and just post the new version.

Any idea of when the linux version of viewport will be available?

@Hanno: If it does colour print-outs too I'll buy it as soon as you're selling it! Looks seriously good. Getting the best of PropBASIC and ViewPort will be PropHeaven :)

I'm starting to beta test the latest- including Linux. Let me know if you want to help test.
Simon- you can already "copy and paste" into Word/OpenOffice and unlike Propeller Tool- the highlighting will be retained. See screenshot.
I'm thinking how a free editor/compiler/loader could work- I need to make sure I can support users well.

Hanno,
I could spend some time helping to test the new version, especially interested in the Linux version also.
Let me know!

Thanks
Bob

Hanno,

I would also like to help test the linux version.

Hanno,
I could help test the win7 (64bit) version.

ViewPort for Linux is now in beta testing- I'll open it up publicly as soon as it's "good enough". I'll announce that on a separate thread.

I've sent Bean the latest Win version- hopefully we'll soon have high speed terminal support in PropBasic- with all the goodies: relative and absolute cursor positioning, editing, dec/hex/bin/str input and output.

Hi Hanno/Bean

How is the Viewport/PropBASIC integration coming. I have not heard anything about it in the forums for a while now.

Also, how is the the "something big" coming? Can you talk about it now?

Lastly, how long do you estimate that it will take to get Viewport/PropBASIC up to speed on the new Prop 2 once it comes out?

Hi Sandfire,
Bean has added lots of good stuff to PropBasic making it much easier to view/edit variables, stream video, and do terminal io.

I'm getting close to releasing my big update :)

I haven't seen any concrete information about the Prop2, so I can't speculate on how much effort it would take. Am looking forward to getting information and ideally an actual device when they have it.

Any interest in another Linux beta-tester?
