I actually mean the "engine" aka the framework. The IDE itself can stay closed, just like how the Stencyl IDE is closed. However, if you can open source even a little bit, like the libraries that come with B4X , I would be happy. Do understand you not wanting to do so.Do you mean the IDE or the libraries (or both)?
I don't see it happening.
That's why I included Stencyl as an example as Stencyl is a commercial product. Its engine is OSS, but its IDE isn't. I really don't care if the IDE is open or not. The IDE is the front-end, while the framework is the back-end.Commercial and open source does not have to contradict each other
Exactly. Need feature "A"? See if you can code it yourself. If you do, then you can commit it to your repo, then submit a pull request to Erel. If your pull request is accepted, then feature "A" would be released at some point in the near future.Better product, less work for Erel
What you need is a good code maintainer, preferably an OCD nitpicker, who acts as a gatekeeper and only lets good code in.Open source needs special infra-structure.. you can't just write the code and release it.. you should have full control in it's development by others and have the (tools) to do that.
I am tracking it down, I just want to rule out other possibilities first. It's the double value that is null, even though there isn't any double values anywhere near that code, which I have mentioned in another post. What makes me think it's not in my code is that I've seen it in two vastly different circumstances, none of them where that specific error should even be possible. I haven't been able to trim it down to a small sample program (and I don't Think Erel would apreciate a 5000 line sample program), though, as seemingly unrelated changes makes the error go away. But, I'm still on it.With regards to the bug you are suspecting that it's in the source code, first, you can't make sure 100% about that.. second, how did you discover the big? in your project I think, so you
can just report it to Anywhere Software.. then Erel will track it down... (bugs and wish list forum).
Hi Troberg.If the code is not available, his achievement will die with him, as will our possibilities of taking over the torch.
