KBasic is a new programming language similar to Visual Basic. It combines the best features of those tools and comes with built-in backward support for those tools as it is 100% syntax compatible to VB and QBasic. It is written with Qt making it entirely cross platform. The Full Version Professional Edition is available to download for KDE now. It follows the old Qt licencing of being GPL licenced for Free Software and commercially sold for proprietary software.
KBasic is an open source project backed by years of continual development. Versions are available for KDE, Windows and Mac. It allows developers with an installed base of VB applications to start developing for a mixed Windows, Mac OS X and Linux environment. It is made up of a compiler, an interpreter and an integrated development environment. It is about 15 MB source codes in C++ and about 1000 source code files.
People around the world join KBasic - inspired by the idea to make software available for everybody: a programming language that is easy to use, and a development platform that is stable, reliable and available at a low price.
We communicate by different means, most of them on the Internet. The KBasic community rests on dedicated volunteers to further improve our programming language and development platform in a number of different ways. Whatever your skills, there are lots of places to start contributing.
The project is under active development and has a vibrant community. Take a look at ways to contribute.
