Enlightenment Dev Day 2014 – Düsseldorf

Standard

Another year another E developer day right? Almost. This time was different – I was up to present… Showing the guys how my IDE project was going and why they should all get involved in helping me out. This fitted the theme of the event quite well – Raster started the day by showing how much faster the EFL is growing than GTK+ or Qt and calling to our attention that we needed more developers to support that growth.

I proposed that a great way to encourage more developers is to provide an integrated tooling environment that practically teaches you the EFL way of doing things. Linux has a great many text editors, some of which understand code. If what you want is just to create a project and get coding however there is a significant lack.

Step in EDI – it will be the complete development environment for EFL / Linux and hopefully match the style and polish we all love in Enlightenment too. Lots more exciting things to come on this topic but feel free to grab it now (from source) it’s got the basic functionality in already!

Shortly it will be moved to the main E apps development space and pick up the pace of development too 🙂

The presentation was recorded and should be online soon – I’ll link to it once it’s available.
