I have just released a new release of Hyper IDE. Hyper IDE is an open source web-based IDE. I have written another article about it here previously. Since then, I have added many (hopefully) interesting features, and fixed equally many bugs. As I created the latest release, I wanted to put forth a demonstration of how you could use Hyper IDE to create a C# console application, from your browser, on your iPhone, for then to compile the app (still on my iPhone), and download the resulting exe file later on my laptop computer. And I was able to create a simple Hello World application, demonstrating this, in 2 minutes.
I have always been a "believer" in the web. Others around me, not so much, and they would use arguments such as "I can do things with a native app that I could never dream of doing on 'the web.'"
Well, let me ask you the following question: can you create and compile a C# console application in an iPhone "app," that also happens to work on Android, Linux, Mac, Windows, and probably your grandma's toaster, as long as it has a browser?
I didn't think so. I can do that, because I use the web!
If you'd like to see how you can create some apps that are significantly more complex, also in a matter of seconds, you can check out this video and article, where I create a rich and complex database-based CRUD app, literally in 57 seconds.
