lol @ pic

The "Integrated Development Environment" section should be renamed to "Editors". Everything listed is an Editor or an Editor addon/plugin/extension. They are not IDEs

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1918 ... ext-editor
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1992 ... s-and-ides
http://www.quora.com/Integrated-Develop ... and-an-IDE

From these links I get that, there is not strict distinction between IDE and Text Editors. But the major difference is that, IDE has other built-in tools (such as debugger and GUI builder and etc.). Most of tools mentioned in subgroup IDE have these built-in tools. So what you think about it?

AutoHotkey was added at Awesome Awesomeness list but in wrong section. It is now in General section but I think it have to be at Programming Languages section. I opened issue to correct that mistake here https://github.com/bayandin/awesome-awesomeness/issues/64 . Please comment the issue and state your opinion about where it should be.

I have expressed my thoughts :
AutoHotkey is a full-fledged programming language just like Lua is. AutoHotkey is Turing complete. It has functions, objects. It can parse files, compress using the LZ algorithm, read XML, read JSON, you name it! It can execute machine code, execute and read specified regions of the computer's RAM, etc. I don't know what else is needed to be said. Even GitHub considers it as a programming language...

Hurray! It worked!
Okay :rage1::rage2::rage3::rage4:
Here is your programming language: 1b81dbf
Now the situation has changed dramatically :feelsgood:

What I think is that usually IDEs are thought of when associated with larger programming languages, such as C/C++/Java and not so much for scripting languages such as AHK. Its not so much what it can/cannot do, as obviously your links demonstrate that there is a lot of overlap. While AHK has surely developed into a much more capable language, by and large it is still a scripting language and the impression that the user had in the github issue is really not far from being accurate. By claiming that those are "IDEs" for AHK just doesn't 'feel' right.

JMO but whatever. The list is so sparse right now that I doubt anyone would take it seriously anyway.

Finally, what qualifies as "awesome"? Adding your own "Move without WinMove" script is a joke. Clicking on a titlebar is hardly "awesome" imo.

There are lots of discussion about it and lots of different opinions. There is no exact right answer to that question. But In my personal opinion after reading that links it is not right to name tool only "Text Editor" which also has built-in debugger and GUI builder. Do you think it is right to name it only "Text Editor"?

guest3456 wrote:JMO but whatever. The list is so sparse right now that I doubt anyone would take it seriously anyway.

The list was made two days ago. It can't be big enough and include everything in 2 days. We need to work on it.

guest3456 wrote:Finally, what qualifies as "awesome"?

There is Awesome Awesomeness list that includes other "awesome" lists of programming languages and lists for other tools. So, it is usual name for the lists that are listed in Awesome Awesomeness list and is not invented by me.

guest3456 wrote:Adding your own "Move without WinMove" script is a joke. Clicking on a titlebar is hardly "awesome" imo.

If you think that it should not be there, please feel free to create issue and ask to remove it. If someone else will also agrees with you I will remove it. It is not my personal list, it is list created within AutoHotkey organisation and for AutoHotkey users. I am only interested in making Awesome AutoHotkey list really awesome for AutoHotkey users :)

Also guest3456 please contribute and help us make it better :)

Fair enough... Maybe: "Editors/IDEs"

Also guest3456 please contribute and help us make it better :)


perhaps once I get my github set up properly again

When you will set up Github account open issue about renaming "Integrated Development Environment" subgroup. Lets discuss it with other AutoHotkey users.
