OpenLDev is a graphical front-end to Linux development tools such as gcc, autotools and make. Most Integrated Development Environments (IDE), are cumbersome and confusing to use, but OpenLDev strives to provide an easy-to-use interface that is both productive for experts and simple for beginners.

OpenLDev is free and open source and is licensed under the General Public License. Please feel free to submit bugs and/or contribute new code.

In order to create a simple IDE, OpenLDev focuses on C and C++ development. We provide project templates for console applications to those that take advantage of the Gtk+ and Gtkmm libraries. Project and autotools management is provided through a few streamlined dialogs that help the user by removing the need to edit Makefiles. The GtkSourceView widget performs syntax highlighting, which gives users of GEdit a familiar work environment.
