    Default PathScale Working On DogFood, A New Dev IDE

    Phoronix: PathScale Working On DogFood, A New Dev IDE

    PathScale is working on a new project that is internally dubbed "DogFood", it's a new integrated development environment (IDE) based upon Qt Creator but with a greater focus on C++ and other new development concepts...

    Based on QtCreator which is GPL right? Thus i'm guessing "DogFood" will be GPL as well (and likely free?)?

    QtCreator is already my IDE of choice.
    It's going to be interesting to see if DogFood will further enhance it.

    QT creator seems to be lgpl, but I think it works like the rest of qt, with commercial license available.

    QtC is LGPL and has different obligations than the GPL

    We have a non-public[1] roadmap we're working on, but I'm happy to discuss your needs. Feel free to contact me direct or just share your wishlist here.

    [1] The more people we hire the more aggressive we can be about our roadmap. At the point when we feel comfortable with everything we can commit to we'll be more public about it.

    I hope they open source DogFood.

    You'll be modifying QtC and create a derivative, not link against it (it's not a lib), so the obligations are the same as the GPL.

    I'm not sure how familiar you are with QtC design, but almost everything is pushed to a plugin. You're right that any core QtC changes should go upstream, but they made this pretty commercial friendly. This is not to mention the other licensing options which are available. I'm not alluding to anything, but I'm trying to state facts to avoid FUD.

    1) Support for cmake
    2) A colour scheme like Cobalt in Gedit -> blue background and nicely readable fonts
    3) Syntax highlight for Cuda/OpenCL besides C++

    Then I'm all for it!
