    TwinBasic & RADBasic

    since theres no thread about this I think its time to make one.
    check https://www.twinbasic.com/
    and now (2021-01-19) theres 5 videos to watch and planned release February 2021

    this could be it. but before we start the festivities lets wait for the release so we can play around first.

    the reason to start this thread is to notify about news, this because the other 2 threads Vb6 , the Future, and what I have discovered and [RESOLVED] Develop a new/modern VB6-IDE that mention twinbasic are not updated.

    comparing the VB6 IDE and TwinBasic, I prefer VB6 as Im used to it. so hopefully it can be customized a bit, colors, font etc.
    sure I will get used to it eventually. the importance is the language and how easy is to find in the code, organize it etc.

    -----------------
    and we also have RADBasic: https://www.radbasic.dev/
    that claims to be the next thing for VB6, but no news the last 6 months!

    Re: TwinBasic

    Should this also be the TwinBasic and RADBasic thread? I know there is a RADBASIC thread https://www.vbforums.com/showthread....light=radbasic but the two new projects need to be kept in the communities' consciousness at the same time and with equal attention. Both projects have potential and are deserving.

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    The RADBasic dev is working hard to get something ready for testing. I'm not sure whether it will be released for general testing or just to a select group of testers but something is emerging from the pipeline shortly. Just an update to keep the thread warm.

    I hope its as good as its reporting, I wonder which one will be first/better, TwinBasic or RADBasic. they both sound like my dream coming true

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    just 4 more days and after that they failed the release date.
    understandable that it can take more time, thats the life of a dev. but I hope its nothing serious that halted the development

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    Hello everyone. Just wanted to pop in and give you an update on twinBASIC developments.

    Our home-schooling requirements during the UK national lockdown has affected our work output more significantly than anticipated. We are working night and day to get as much done as possible, and things are progressing well, but despite our best efforts our work output is only a third of where it would normally be.

    The good news is that our kids go back to school on 8th March, and normal operations will then resume. The first twinBASIC release will now be rescheduled for March. Please accept our apologies. I promise it will be worth the wait!

    np, good to know its "life" that is slowing things down, as its usually that, circumstances.
    the importance is that the motivation is there and the coding is going smoothly without giving too much headaches.
    one month extra is nothing with such big project. keep it up!
    and hopefully we will win against this virus so we can resume normality, if theres even possible to get back to what it was.

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    Just spotted this, I'm a long-time contributer to the Rubberduck extension - Wayne has contributed some of the most complex, ingenious code to the project, deep inside the internals of VB. I'm quite sure this is real, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    Im thinking a bit here.
    twinbasic offer 32/64 bit but right now without any gui.
    I see from time to time people asking a way to deal with 64bit, but still using their own 32bit application, like a communicator between the 32bit application, the meddler with the 64bit dll/packages.

    do you think twinbasic could be that now on its early stage since theres no gui right now, it could at least act as a meddler?
    example:
    we create an app in twinbasic 64bit, that will communicate with the 64 bit DLLs.
    and we create a server functionality that our 32bit application can communicate with.

    what say?

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    This thread should be in the VB6 and earlier forum. Nobody see it here (I found it with a Google search).

    But that would be wrong. This subject is totally of interest of the VB6 community, and only for the VB6 community.

    I, as I think most users, only go to the VB6 and earlier forum, I don't navigate for all the many forums and subforums here (that I even don't remember they exists).

    I also only browse vb6 and earlier.

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    Then create a thread there, add a brief summary and link it here for information purposes, the thread is in the correct place here.

    We have an idea of what TwinBasic might be but it isn't yet VB6 but one day it might handle VB6 projects whatever they may be - but I understand it will be a BASIC dialect with VB6 compatibility and 64bit. I may be wrong.

    We have an idea that RADBasic is striving to be completely VB6 compatible but at the moment that is an aspiration so for the moment RADBasic isn't VB6 but aims to be in the same space VB6 is now (but supported and 64bit).

    Until those aspirations are proven and one of those projects becomes both the spiritual and practical successor to VB6 then the thread belongs here I think.

    My guess is that this thread was posted originally in VB6 & earlier forum and then moved by the moderators, but not sure.

    BTW: I don't think that it is a good idea to have so many subforums when most ones are never used or visited (and most members don't even know they exist).

    Perhaps when VB had millions of developers that could made sense, but now that we are a few, we are all in one place.

    Re: TwinBasic & RADBasic

    yeah, I posted this in vb6&earlier but was moved.
    I feel the same, this thread will be invisible for most VB6 users since they will not look outside the VB6 threads.

    when twinbasic is out and we can play with it, maybe it can be integrated with VB6 if the code is working in both or theres a communication between the two (as I posted about earlier)
