to augmented-programming, PiLuD
* I write my code in some HLL like Haxe or Shen where the HLL has
already been ported to the N languages/hosts I want to target. (iOS
PIC C code, et. al.)
* When I need something 'concrete' that isn't in the HLL I can write
an escape-into-native-ffi-code type construct.
* The IDE helps me with code completion / guidance / whatever in
making the HLL interface to the 'native' stuff.
* It also gives me a great UI/UX wrt writing and managing the N
different implementations i'll have to write of said 'native' stuff.
* It manages the underlying project similarly, so that things are,
from the get-go, kept clean and sane and not all jumbled or inlined
nastily in any way (at least in terms of the source, if not in terms
of the final result).
* It also somehow helps me upload/download/integrate these 'native'
things with other people's repos of similar 'native' things.
¿or if you think that sounds utterly in vain and silly and dumb, do
you have thoughts about how best to day-dream about a great way to
really develop cross-platform stuff?
