Any plans to make the application browser friendly..

meaning can the app be displayed in the browser... in effect turning geany into a browser based ide..

It will be really wonderful if someone can do it.. as geany has a very good backend and a front end at browser would be terrific..

An example of it would be the RStudio Server http://www.rstudio.com/ide/server/

It has a very clean and a fast interface, and the whole source code is also available...

Kindly ninepin..

    You could theoretically use Geany in a browser using the Broadway backend for GTK+.

    Probably best to seek support through GTK+ channels, I just mentioned it since it sounds like basically what you ask and I saw some demos.

     
  • For Broadway to work you seem to need to run boardwayd before the applications.

     
    • labels: browser ide, web ide, Rstudio Server --> browser ide, web ide
    • status: open --> wont-fix
     
  • Geany is a desktop application and we don't plan to make it a web application.
