Dev Tools

Alternative languages:

  • D : better than C, but not over-the-top like C++? Covers only Win and Linux
  • Vala : Kinda like C# but for Gnome. Covers Win and Linux. (Android maybe through NDK).
  • Java: Kinda over the top and heavy. Covers Win and Linux. Android yes, but different GUI library. iOS probably yes.
  • Python: scripting language. Win, Linux. Android maybe... iOS maybe...
  • Javascript: scripting language. ALL PLATFORMS.

  • MakeKit - autotools look & feel but lighter
  • mobs: autoconf workalike.
