OpenLDev is a development environment that provides a graphical front-end to Linux compilers such as gcc. Most Integrated Development Environments (IDE), are cumbersome and confusing to use, but OpenLDev strives to provide an easy-to-use interface that is both productive for experts and simple for beginners.
In order to create an easy-to-use IDE, OpenLDev focuses on C and C++ development. We provide project templates for console applications to those that take advantage of the GTK+ libraries. Project and autotools management is provided through a few streamlined dialogs that help the user by removing the need to edit Makefiles. The GtkSourceView widget performs syntax highlighting, which gives users of GEdit a familiar work environment.
OpenLDev is free and open source and is licensed under the General Public License version 2 or later.
