ESbox 2nd Edition (final)

About ESbox

ESbox is an Eclipse Ganymede-based product that helps programmers to develop applications for Maemo platform using Scratchbox Apophis.

It supports C/C++ and Python programming languages with source editing, code completion, build, launch, debug, profiling, and packaging support.

ESbox may be used on all major platforms (Linux, Win32, Mac OS X). On non-Linux systems, you may use a virtual machine, or if you want, a remote Linux system, to host the Maemo SDK and Scratchbox. ESbox will transparently do all the work through that system for you.

Maemo 4.1 Diablo and 5.0 Fremantle SDKs are supported (older versions may work as well).
