I've made my repo for TokenIDE public, and released it under the WTFPL license.

https://bitbucket.org/merthsoft/tokenide/

This does not mean I won't be working on it, but I've been so busy with other things lately that I don't want it to be yet another editor that dies off without anyone having the source.

Hey, that's cool. One thing though... WTFPL is kind of nice, but it also allows code theft. I don't know if you care about that but if you do you could add a clause saying that modified documents must at least mention your name or so. Just a suggestion.

Good move Merth. Too many projects disappear without the source out there and it's a shame. Also, now everyone can contribute to the growth of this project and I'm glad that more and more community projects go in that direction lately. :)

I hope you get more free time soon, though. It would suck to see you go.

That's actually why I chose WTFPL. When I release code, I'm not interested in preventing anyone from doing whatever they want with it.

In any case, if anyone steals it and claims everything as their own work, then people in the community will most likely notice anyway, and then they'll just not download his stuff.


Also, by making this and Cesium open-source, perhaps this could put more pressure on authors of similar, but closed-source programming tools to make theirs open-source. :P

Bump:

By the way, if anyone or the author decides to update this, it would be nice if in the emulator dropdown, there was a CEmu option. Right now it lets you send programs to Wabbit and TilEm, but for CE development a CEmu option would definitively be nice. :)

Ah right, I was under the impression that this was already implemented, for whatever reasons (especially with SourceCoder being around and apparently supporting C language editing).

Adriweb

Well in this case, it has nothing to do with code editors, just being able to accept some CLI arguments, mostly. (the bare minimum would be a ROM and some file(s) to transfer).
It should come "soon" :)

Yeah true. But once implemented, someone has to allow Tokens to send files to CEmu too :P

It's not urgent, though. I just noticed that Tokens could send files to emulators a few minutes ago (I normally just save, build 8xp then drag and drop from Windows Exploder to CEmu)
