New Software Project in C#.NET

Posted 10 September 2008 - 01:48 PM

You've most likely seen my Snippet Manager. But now I'm stuck for ideas.

I've got a couple of ideas in my head, but I want some feedback before I get started.

-A cross platform IDE
-A web browser (Something along the lines of the Google Chrome GUI)
-A chat program

Note that these won't just be crappy things with a few buttons here and there, I'm looking for a proper software project.


Side project idea:
-An advanced tab control, like in Google Chrome or Firefox


I'm open to any suggestions/requests :)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Sure!

I'm going for accelerated learning in C# ~ all this is a learning experience, and I'm doing as much as possible.

I've always got multiple projects running~ The blog engine will be most advanced, and therefore the most important learning experience, so it will be top priority ^_^

What are you writing your projects in? (The IDE I mean)

I think he's using #Develop, I use Visual Studio.Net, Visual Studio 2003, Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio 2008 and #Develop, depending on what I'm working on. Yeah I know, VS.Net & VS 2003 are old but you'd be surprised how many companies are still using .Net 1.1 :blink:

Ok, then it would be cross-platform. You could just make a text editor like PolyEdit. PolyEdit seems pretty cool, but it's commercial and is sold from $27.95-$450 depending on the amount licenses you want. It mixes text editor with word prossesor and is super light weight.

Nothing in C# (or VB.NET for that matter) is cross-platform. Those languages run on Windows machines that have the .Net Framework installed

I know about Mono, but it's just not the same. Unless a program is written in Mono to begin with it will not be cross-platform. I cannot write a program in C# and run it on a Linux box that has Mono installed

Sorry, before, I got Mono and SharpDevelop mixed up. But it could be ported anyway, just not with SharpDevelop.
