Brainf*ck IDE


S3B4 2020-05-07 02:54 (Edited)

An IDE for the deceptively simple programin language called Brain*ck
If you want info on how it works read the comment in the program
It’s finished! I might make a few tweaks here and there but I doubts I’ll really make any big changes.

Making a tool is fun and taught me a lot about how LowRes NX works so I nominate YOU to try and make your own tool! :)

Update history:
V0.1 - console-like interface, can run programs but can’t load nor save them
V0.2 - can run programs from disk and save them
V0.8 - UI set in place, has the framework for reading and writing programs but you still have to change the code to do it
V0.9 - Able to read and save programs to disk, ASCII setting
V1.0 - Cursor in editor and support for long programs

Is this going to look like the real BrainF***

What do you mean by “look like the real BrainF***”? Brnfk is a programming language and there’s many interpreters of it out there each with their own interface

I like how the first two replies look like some people trying to get past a swear filter.

That said, I do appreciate your efforts to try and make this beautiful mess of a language work on NX.

This is a pretty cool program right here even that it only has one example right now
Cant wait to see how good it gets

That first question that was just me not thinkin again

The new version has a bit of spaghetti code mainly because the code for the text editor was written a few months ago, I’ll rewrite it when I have to time to make it shorter. (Also you can tap to move the cursor around so you don’t have to backspace all the way back to fix something

I pushed it to its limit i typed the code for hello world
It was doing fine at first but one the 2nd to last line the program froze for a few seconds each time i typed something

And then one the last each time it froze it was frozen for about 5 - 8 seconds
This is a cool program right here

wow !

Try : +, +, -.[

So for 1.0 you can add scrolling text with virtual arrows and cursor using [<] and [>] :)

Aaaaand version 1.0 is finally out! Remember you can move the cursor around by touching to where you want to move it, it’s a touchscreen after all! The return button is not very good and I recommend using it after you’ve finished it to space it out because else it ruins the entire thing.

The fact that I made an entire text editor in LowRes just to implements this monstrosity of a language makes me sad

G-9 2020-05-11 15:25

Woo you did it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are a god

Really well polished, it’s actually the first time I tried to write something in Brainf*ck :)

The fact that you made a working IDE is very impressive. I attempted to make something like this myself, but it didn't go very well.
