What is WideStudio?
WideStudio is an open source, Integrated Development Environment for
desktop applications purely made in Japan.
This enables you to develop GUI applications that can run on
Windows95/98/Me/NT/2000/Xp/Vista, WindowsCE, Linux, FreeBSD, SOLARIS,
MacOSX(w/X11), BTRON, T-Engine, mu-CLinux(wo/X11) in various
programming languages such as C/C++, Java, Perl, Ruby, Python,Objective
Since an application is build on MWT(Multi-Platform Widget Toolkit)
which runs on multiple platforms,
WideStudio applications are all source compatible between these
If you developped an application in C/C++ language, you only need to
re-compile the source
code to run on a different platform in as native code.
Here is a list of platforms
that WS can run on
WideStudio Just fits it!
- You can develop desktop applications easily and free
WideStudio is an inovative tool to develop an application visualy
across multiple platforms.
You can design a GUI application using software parts - "Component",
and reduce development process and cost efficiently.
Also, WideStudio provides an IDE, runtime libraries, and compilers,
all free to everyone.
Now you don't need to buy an expensive IDE tool prohibiting novice
programmers to start development.
- WideStudio leads GUI in Ubiquitous Computing
WideStudio is capable of developing applications available from large
server to an embedded device.
You can develop GUI based applications that can run on T-Engine,
WindowsCE, ITRON which
supports Ubiquitous computing as well as Win32, Linux, Solaris, MacOSX,
Thus, applications you develop with WS have no need to aware platform
differences such as
Windows, WindowsCE, Linux, FreeBSD, SOLARIS, MacOSX, T-Engine, or BTRON
Also you will be able to experience sufficient performance on low-spec
CPU or with very limited memory
because WideStudio GUI processing runs as a CPU-native code resulting
in low cost development for
embedded devices - WideStudio leads state-of-the-art GUI application
development in Ubiquitous Computing.
- WideStudio is Open Source
WideStudio has been developed by WideStudio Development Team aiming at
sharing software development techniques
and benefits among everyone with its complete source code being
This software has an X11/MIT type open source license which does not
require users to disclose applicaiton source code, which means
anapplication developed with WideStuido can be used commercially.
Also WideStudio source code is completely developed and managed by
WideStudio Development Team to maintain free of risk from lawsuits by
third parties regarding copyright violation - users who want to make
their application commercially avalable, need not to scare of
lawsuits at all.
