ZX BASIC is an 'open tool compiler kits. Other people contribute to it creating alternative IDEs, libraries, tools and utilities. Feel free to browse them, as you might find them useful for your work!

Contents

IDEs

IDE are integrated source (or bigger projects) editor, sometimes with an integrated debugger and many other tools (e.g. Borland Delphi or Visual Studio are well known IDEs). Some people have developed IDEs usable for ZX BASIC.

Tommy Gun

A free IDE created by Tony Thompson. This powerful tool is designed to create generic 8-bit and 16-bit projects, and can be set up to be used with ZX Basic. Have a look at the TommyGun page.

To integrate ZX Basic with Tommy Gun, please follow this tutorial.

Graphics editors

  • SevenUP, a ZX Spectrum graphics editor for FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, MacOS and Windows.

Utilities

Other generic utilities not above are:

VIM Syntax Coloring

If you use VIM (I do) you can now tell vim to highlight your ZX BASIC .bas listings. Programandala has a nice Spectrum and retro programming site. He also created a VIM Syntax File for ZX BASIC. I find this very useful.
