BLIde LogoBLIde is an integrated development environment (IDE). It is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to BlitzMax programmers for applications and games development.

BLIde consists of:

  • A source code editor
  • A complete project management system
  • BlitzMax compiler seamless integration
  • Build automation tools
  • A debugger front-end
  • Integration of additional editors (image editors, 3D editors, etc.)

BLIde is a single program in which all development is done. BLIde provides many features for authoring, modifying, compiling, deploying and debugging games and applications. The aim is to abstract the configuration necessary to piece together all command line utilities in a cohesive unit, which reduces the time to learn BlitzMax, and increases developer productivity.
