BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku developers are preparing to finalise which features should be present in the first official release of Haiku. "This general interest poll, is to allow you - yes you! - the opportunity to effectively express your thoughts on which features should be present in Haiku R1 (Final). For R1, a balance must be attained between delaying the release and making Haiku R1 a well polished, impressive and feature rich release."

Include the IDE please

Hello World!

I sure hope like BeOS before it, it includes a working IDE or dev chain ready to compile and debug sample sources (even the old samples perhaps). Working with the old BeIDE and samples was lots of fun in the day. Last time I tried Haiku alpha 1, I wasn't sure if it was possible for one of the new IDEs to just be installed with suitable sample toy apps.

If that is addressed, I'd think lots more inquiring developers would jump in!

It already has an IDE called Paladin which is the successor to BeIDE. It's great and very useable! Also, if you are interested, there already exists everything you need to get started developing! That's what I'm gonna be doing after my last exam.

Yes, for instance there's a great introductory series for programming on Haiku by long time contributor Darkwyrm which you can find in the blog-o-sphere section on the Haiku homepage. It's a work in progress but it already covers/touches alot.

The Alphas did come with a full toolchain (in fact, Haiku alphas and nightlies should come with everything necessary to download the Haiku sources and recompile Haiku itself).

As for a full IDE, it doesn't come with one yet, but it does come with Pe which is an excellent syntax highlighting code editor. You can also download a more featured IDE such as Paladin and just drop it onto your Haiku install and get to building projects.

As for "Sample Code" - the best sample code is probably the various apps and demos in the Haiku source tree. Granted these don't come with much documentation, but if you learn how to use the Haiku build system itself, they're extremely easy to compile and run.

Paladin was absolutely nowhere near as advanced as BeIDE last time I looked at it. I hope it got a lot better.

Will BeIDE not still run under Haiku? IIRC, it was a separate download - well, at least, I don't remember it being part of PE. Maybe I'm wrong.
