Ubuntu Software Development Kit

Registered by nurv on 2006-11-13

My vision of Ubuntu Software Development Kit is similar to what Apple does with its Development Kit. I think that Small ISV have a hack of a time developing Applications for Ubuntu (I know, i am one of them). First, there is no universal IDE. That seams like nonsense, but imagine having something like Xcode where every one in the community work. Second is the total lack of a Unified API and a Unified Documentation for that API. I have to check 5 different sites between GNOME and GStreammer to get a application working. Third is the lack of support for a Single Language (Novell has Mono, Fedora has Java, but there's something missing in Ubuntu, our own Objective-C). From all of this I hope that in the near future can be a Unified API and better support for one language, whatever language.
It can be installed in a .deb format or a different CD containing documentation and applications.

I think that it could be done with QT Creator, and integrate QT with Gnome and Unity tecnologies.
