xMate Project Manager for HMG

Post by Rathinagiri » Thu Jul 31, 2008 7:52 am

I am using for a long time a project manager to compile and link HMG projects xMate Project Manager.

This latest version of this software (1.15) can be Download from here or here.

Also download the environment file for HMG Stable version 2.0 and HMG Latest Test version 2.5.3.

This software consists of prg editor with syntax highlighting too.

However, HMG Make is also a great and simple utility.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Personally I prefer HMG-IDE. With integrated form editor this is indispensable for me.

Best regards

No ! No good, HMG-IDE is BEST for HMG :)

With "two way" speciality, it is a indispensable project builder.

It is a great utility. Sadly it does not include environment file for official version of HMG.

IMO the combination of xMate and HMG-IDE (official) is the best solution for doing programming using Harbour + MiniGUI.
Particularly, xMAte's editor is excellent and the same apply to the IDE's form designer.
Unfortunately both of them are not open source. The problem with not being opensource, is that you cannot add futures and/or improve/integrade these two great tools.
My main problem is that i cannot call directly the IDE's form designer from inside xMate to create/edit forms.
Anyway, i respect the choice of their creators to not disclosure to the public the surce of their products. We cannot have all in this life. ;->

Hi esgici, rathinagiri
I have tried both, (conText & Crimson -i think conText is still sleeping in somewhere inside my office-pc.) They both certainly are not bad. Of course the tool which someone is familiar/exercised with, is the best, but i dare to say that xMates editor *in my opinion* is better for clipper/harbour/minigui programming.

@Roberto Lopez: since we're talking about tools, is there any tip we can use to "convince" your IDE to start accepting a parameter such as the filename of a form, and directly to open/invoke the form designer to create/edit exactly that form passed? Of course, this is not obligatory to be taken as a feature request, read it is just an idea often visiting the back of my head.. 8-)

Your wish is in my "Top Ten" of most requested features to the IDE :)

As you can imagine, its relatively easy to accept a form filename from command line and automatically edit it.

The real problem is the user context.

Using the IDE as a form editor only, means to disable or hide all the project manager features. It involves a lot of other things too.

The IDE code is not very modular, so, this is a little difficult thing to do (at least quickly).

Roberto.
