Starting EventGhost programming

Post by alxppp » Sat Mar 20, 2010 11:04 pm

Hi,

I'd like to make some changes in the code of EventGhost. Unfortunately I don't know how to start.
My actual knowlege is, that EventGhost is written in Phyton. (?) Furthermore I got an old source code from SourceForge.

Does somebody know, where I can find the source code of the latest version of EventGhost? What do you think is the best IDE to develop (for free)?

Thank you
Alexander

Current source is: http://www.eventghost.org/websvn

As for IDE, Eric4 is often recommended. I just use notepad++.

Thank you, Brett.

Eric4 is a monster (you need to install 4 components to get it run; there is no .exe file, you can just run). I would prefer, to do this with Notepad++, as well. Which compiler do you use, to create the project?

You don't need a compiler.
Actually you can just modify/add files in EG's directory and restart EventGhost.exe
