Projects / Organon


Organon is a tool to manage development projects of any kind, acting as a meta-interface and control center for a developer's favorite development tools. It is written for those who use specialized, stand-alone editors to write their code but would like to have a tool to manage the file groups they work with. It can be used with any programming language, and it can be easily tailored to match your needs. You can configure the standard tools (dedicated to editing, compilation, and execution), and you can define any number of new user tools.

    Release Notes: Bugs have been fixed in various parts of the code. Now adding new, nonexistent files is possible. A hard-coded path has been removed. It is now possible to add more than one (existing) file at a time using Project->Add. The code requires no additional Perl-Tk modules now.

      Release Notes: A bugfix in the definition of the keyboard shortcuts has been corrected: in the previous version, the same key was used for two very different functions. Furthermore, the code has been tweaked and reorganized.

        Release Notes: Organon can now run projects and execute tools in a terminal window. The terminal emulator can be defined in the Configure Standard Tools dialog. The way to define Organon's behavior when capturing stdout and stderr for standard and user-defined tools is now more flexible: there is a drop-down menu instead of a group of checkboxes. Finally, the "--path" command-line switch can now be used to choose a path in which to open the first project of the session.

          Release Notes: The code used to capture the output for executed programs has been rewritten to ensure continual refreshing of the window where the output is displayed. The defining of standard and user-defined tools is now more flexible. If the Tk::FileDialog module is installed on the system, it will be detected and used automatically.

          •  04 Aug 2001 15:53

            Release Notes: The flexibility of the user-defined tools has been increased. It is now possible to define a tool that works on all the files in the project. A couple of cosmetic fixes have been added.

            Excellent project manager
            I used to use gde as my programming (project) manager but I've found organon much more stable, flexible and it's actively supported! Keep up the good work and I'm anxious to see the next version (C++).
