A simple cobol IDE
OpenCobolIDE is a simple and lightweight cobol IDE based on the OpenCobol compiler.
The software is written in Python using PyQt4 and pyQode
- syntax highlighting
- code completion
- code folding
- compile as program (.exe) or as subprogram (.so)
- run the program from the editor
- also open text files
OpenCobolIDE is released under the GPL version 3
Run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install python-qt open-cobol sudo easy_install OpenCobolIDE
There is a windows installer available here: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download
The project depends on the following packages:
- Python 2.7 or Python 3
- Pygments >= 1.6
- chardet (chardet2 if you are using python3)
I am by no way a cobol expert, I just had to work on a cobol project at school with an awful IDE (NetExpress on a Windows Xp virtual machine). As I was writing pyqode, I thought it would be nice to use it to make a simple cobol editor for GNU/Linux.
I’ve only learnt COBOL 74 and the IDE has been thought with this standard in mind. I have personally no plan on working with cobol at the moment nor to learn a new standard but if you found a missing feature, feel free to open a feature request. I’m always looking forward to make OpenCobolIDE better for the experts.
Your advice will be very appreciated!
