Bacon using GUI's starting examples

Post#1 by bigbass » 03 May 2012, 13:21

Bacon has a lot of power you can place things exactly where you want them on the GUI and is very fast the end result gets compiled into a binary
writing code in just Bacon is easy so that won't get explained here
The GUI part of the code needs to be explained (it uses HUG) so that you can get started with making your own apps

I am doing all of the gtkdialog examples translated to BaCon ... well one at a time :)

I am witting a tutorial for BaCon
http://basic-converter.proboards.com/in ... thread=263


here are some quick reference examples
http://basic-converter.proboards.com/in ... thread=344

Porteus is the only distro that has packages for BaCon and the GUI ide
and many code examples to get started quickly
there is even new arm support for BaCon

soon we will have many nice new apps in BaCon

I have been busy coding in BaCon
You can see that you can even import from GTK anything and make your own special widgets

Hi bigbass!
Would it be possible (of course with affordable changes) to port Windows VB applications to Linux using Bacon, question mark.
I am trying to compile Gambas for Porteus for that target; but it is a big task and I don't know if I'll succed in my final purpose. If Bacon does the job, why then Gambas..
Regards :)
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

Hey wread

Bacon uses "basic" and it uses something called HUG to make the GUI's but manually
however gambas has code like visual basic and a RAD rapid application development like visual basic
but heavy to run and use but is professional and complex

Bacon and HUG is more hands on but the resulting code is fast and very small (it even works on android)
if you ever decide to use BaCon join the forum I wrote a tutorial showing example widgets
that have been tested on porteus

As a side note I started programming in assembly and Qbasic when I was a student a long time ago * An Electronics tech
and basic still has a lot of power even more now that you can compile it and run it on linux
you can run bash commands from the system also

anyway there are some nice people over there too that enjoy coding
Pjot ... Peter the author joins in on the action and offers advice
He is a GTK ,basic ,and C code guru so there's always something fun to learn

http://www.tecgraf.puc-rio.br/iup/

checkout the left hand side gallery and screen shots !

I have been busy here http://basic-converter.proboards.com/in ... &post=3001

I can port code to BaCon so no nasty C coding needed
