Next Basic development pipeline?

Post by stevebrowne » Fri Dec 22, 2017 10:54 am

Is there an existing way or planned way to easily develop using NextBasic on a PC/Mac etc. rather than on the Next directly?

I saw the VS Code addons, which is great for source code, but what's the way to then squirt that onto the Next to run / test , or is there a PC/Mac based NextBasic interpreter?

I am not aware of anything other than using one of the emulators like ZEsarUX, Cspect etc to write there first.
I'm Infinite Imaginations when not in work... PAWS for thought.

have you seen this Visual Studio extension? viewtopic.php?f=14&t=532

I think it should be easy to extend it to the syntax of Next Basic. Having a Spectrum Next emulator could be an issue though.

Merry christmans and have a lot of fun...
