Portable Eclipse

I keep hearing about Elicpse as a great editor but it seems such a pain to start using that a portable version with support for the .Net languages would make a good replacement to Visual Studio for the developer on the go. Easy support for adding languages would be good and would eliminated the need to include the languages so long as there was a repository of easy portable language plugins.

Java

Eclipse is Java-based, so it cannot be made portable. I would suggest SciTE as an alternative.

Or Portable Notepad2 (see my blog), which is based on SciTE and is already done for you.

I have eclipse on my drive. It works perfectly if there is Java installed on the Host.

yea......

Of course it does, but you can't take the chance that Java won't be installed on a machine that you go on.

Open Office

Isn't Open Office also Java based, is there a significant difference in the way OO.org and Eclipse work that I dont understand. SciTEdoes not cut it as an IDE, it needs debugging and compiling support.

Thanks

that sounds pretty good as an editor. Perhaps a Development Suite could be made with it and some other apps.

Hm...

Would you like to work on that with me?

I'm thinking:

  • Portable PSPad launcher (eliminate registry leftovers, important settings are stored in an INI file)
  • Portable NSIS
  • Portable dev-cpp
  • the Java SDK

...All referenced by the in-PSPad compiler.

I realize this wouldn't be allowed for distribution publicly, but it would be interesting and could be distributed by e-mail.

Portable NSIS

You can distribute that as much as you want! Even if it wasn't open-source I'd still give you permission Biggrin

Well...

Sure, but I don't think the guy who made PSPad would appreciate his product being bundled without his permission.

In that case...

...let the developing begin!

I've put in a request for a project page for Portable Developer. Got any better ideas for a name?

How about...

How about Portable Development Suite? I'm the developer, not the application. Other than that, I can't think of anything.
