The MoSync IDE is based on Eclipse. Eclipse organizes your source code using projects and workspaces. A workspace is a collection of projects. A project is a collection of a set of source files. Projects can be individual applications or modules, depending on how you choose to organize your workspaces. Each project maps to a corresponding directory in the file system.
The different projects in a workspace may map to different file system directories or drives, although, by default, all projects map to subdirectories of a single workspace directory. All files in the workspace are directly accessible to the standard programs and tools of the underlying operating system.
The Project Explorer view in the IDE shows you all the projects in the current workspace and their source files.
In the MoSync IDE, you create a new project by doing one of the following:
When the New Project window opens, expand the MoSync folder:
In the folder MoSync you will find wizards for creating MoSync projects.
Select the one called MoSync Project.
Click Next. A new window will open showing you the templates that are available for you new project:
Select a template type (C/C++ or HTML5), then select one of the available templates.
Click Next. The project name and location screen appears:
Enter the Project name "HelloWorld". (Note: to ensure compatibility with all platforms and devices, avoid using spaces in project names; it is always safe to use the underscore character.)
Tick the Use default location box.
Your new project will now be created from the template and loaded in the MoSync IDE.
We provide you with many different project templates, adapted to meet the needs of various different application types.
All templates have:
