Custom 68K IDE with CodeLite, Retro68 and pce-macplus

Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:12 pm

Hi,

Previously I wrote a review on the PCE/macplus emulator here https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9274. Interestingly, when used with CodeLite and Retro68 (https://github.com/autc04/Retro68), the combination can form a very good development environment for 68k Mac apps.

With some time recently, I have written another article here http://www.toughdev.com/content/2018/12/developing-68k-mac-apps-with-codelite-ide-retro68-and-pce-macplus-emulator/ that explains how CodeLite can be setup exactly for this purpose. Mac apps can be run on various emulators on different Macintosh system software just by changing the project configuration dropdown. Autocomplete is supported as well. CodeLite can also be configured to tail the serial port output file and this can used for debugging purposes.

The article also contains a YouTube demo video as well as the link to download the VirtualBox image with everything set up and ready for you to try out.

Let me know what you think.
