CSIDE for ChoiceScript is finally here (and about time, too!). If you’ve ever vaguely pondered maybe trying your hand at an ‘Interactive Novel’ style, choice-based IF — and perhaps even having it published by Choice of Games for a nice wedge of dosh… erm, I mean for tens of thousands of players to enjoy — then now’s your chance!
Seriously though, I’ve been a beta tester for the community-driven CSIDE project (albeit off and on; life happens), for well over three years now, so I know just what a difference this application can make for both newcomers and experienced coders alike.
If you have any questions and don’t yet want to sign up to the CoG forums to ask, fire away and I’ll do my best to reply—if someone else doesn’t beat me to it first.
Following description taken from the ChoiceScriptDev Wiki:
"The ChoiceScript Integrated Development Environment (CSIDE) offers a “hands on” approach to CS coding, providing a way to manage your files, write your stories, and test your game scripting, all in one neat package! It includes features designed to streamline the entire creation process and take out every possible hardship or chore, leaving only the fun bits for you.
Popular features include support for multiple projects, ‘Smart’ indentation, powerful testing and debugging tools, and fully-integrated (official) Quicktest & Randomtest functions—not to mention all the features you’d expect of a versatile Code Editor, such as handy code highlighting, spell-checking (US or UK, plus a User Dictionary), multiple Hotkeys for ease of use, and much more!
Among other useful Example Projects, for non-programmers and others new to ChoiceScript, CSIDE offers a detailed, step-by-step Interactive Tutorial, Learning Basic ChoiceScript, designed to help you progress at your own pace. "
