I’ve made an online editor called Borogove for various parser IF languages. It’s now available at borogove.app. The layout is similar to the Inform 7 IDE with the screen split into a text editor on the left and an interpreter to run the game on the right.
The main goal of the editor is to make it easier to start using Vorple, which has so far required a relatively complicated setup to get it running. In Borogove everything is ready to go so you can start authoring literally in one click. But, since Vorple is basically an Inform extension, you can also use the editor for “normal” Inform projects, either Inform 6 or Inform 7. It’s also possible to write Hugo games.
The Inform 7 compiler has all the extensions from the Public Library installed so they can be used without any extra setup. In Inform 6 and Hugo you can add libraries and source files to the project using the editor’s File Manager.
This is the first release of the editor so it has only the basic functionality at the moment. Most notably I’m planning to add a feature to publish and play games online. If you’re using it for real projects, remember to download a copy every now and then just to make sure you don’t lose work! The project files can be downloaded from the File Manager dropdown menu (triangle icon in the top right of the File Manager.) There’s no login system yet and everything is stored locally in the browser, so clearing site data from the browser will also delete any projects started in the editor.
I’d be happy to take comments and suggestions. The source code of the editor is also available at GitHub - vorple/borogove-ide: Borogove online IDE for IF languages, and I’ll publish the code of other parts (I7 compiler service, remote assets) later as well as project documentation in case someone wants to tinker with it.
