2010 (English)In: INTERFACES AND HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION 2010 / [ed] Katherine Blashki, 2010, 446-448 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
