The Rainbow IDE is a smart multi-target IDE spawned from Portal-9. If you
like Portal-9 but also develop for other machines, you're going to LOVE
You can add your own assemblers and customize how the IDE interacts with
them, use three disk imaging tools including imgtool.exe, os9.exe,
decb.exe; and emulate your software as ROM or floppy disk in any supported
system in the M.E.S.S. emulator. You definately want to install the
M.E.S.S. emulator for seamless "what you see is what you get" development
unmatched by any other IDE. Hundreds of vintage computers and CPUs are
supported meaning you can write software for practically all the vintage
computers and even more and see your programs run right from the IDE.
The complete system will come in 3 parts (2 of which are optional/extra),
the main installer for the IDE including some sample projects and built-in
assemblers, a ToolPak installer which adds third-party and extra tools to
the menus, and the SourcePak which adds a bunch of sample ready-to-build
projects so you can get your feet wet real quick.
If you like Rainbow, you'll want to register it to enable some of the
features which you might see grayed out in the menus, and to remove the
reminder box. Otherwise, you can try the software forever while moving the
reminder box out of the way from the Build button.
Rainbow should be released sometime tonight and I will post the URL here.
