Vim in an IDE
- Many times have I been asked to support running a debugger in Vim. I
always responded that Vim is an editor, not an IDE. If you want to
debug your code with Vim, make a framework that integrates Vim with
other tools, such as a debugger.
That framework was never made... Until Agide was born!
Agide stands for A-A-P GUI IDE. This IDE is designed as a framework in
which separate tools can work together. This makes it very flexible.
Currently Vim and gdb are supported, making it possible to debug C
programs. Read the tutorial to get an idea how this works:
There are plenty of pictures, thus you can also read this if you didn't
install Agide (yet).
The current version is just a starting point. It is easy to add more
tools, thus with help from volunteers Agide should grow pretty fast.
- Do read the remarks about downloading and installation. You probably
won't get very far without that:
- It only works properly on Unix. If you do use Agide on MS-Windows,
please report problems you notice. It's even better if you know how
to fix them!
- Obviously many more features can and should be added. But I do not
have much time available. Agide will only grow with the help of
others. If you want to add a tool, the file Agide/Tools/README.txt
describes the interface.
