Abstract [en]

We present a project in development, an integrated development environment (IDE) for Mac OS X named Lightweight

IDE. The design breaks with the trend of making user interfaces more and more complex, in order to produce a system

which is fast to learn and comfortable to use. The project has two goals: To produce a usable system for education and

hobbyists, as well as exploring advantages of a tight user interface for this particular kind of applications. The system has

been implemented and is fully usable for serious development. It has been evaluated in a limited user study.
