Stop at any line.
Set and unset as many breakpoints as you wish. Even set and unset breakpoints during the execution of your app. No more having to swim through a sea of print statements!
Comes with functions you would expect from a fully featured debugger such as step in, step over, step out, and run to cursor commands. No more pausing the simulator yourself.
Its your app, see it.
Never use another print statement again. You can see the contents of any variable graphically in a user friendly tree diagram. Variables update automatically after every program step giving you an interactive debugging experience. See a screenshot »
See it. Change it.
Set any variable to another value during runtime. Want to see what happens if you change a variable from true to false? Do it at runtime! Want to make sure you properly nil checked your code? Just set a breakpoint and change it at runtime. See a screenshot »
Pause and Continue
Find out where you are.
Allows you to pause and continue your app at any time. Is your program stuck in a loop and you cannot find where? With Glider, just press pause and it will take you directly to the problem. You can even pause and set properties of display objects.
Smart Code Completion
Code more. Type less.
All of the Corona SDK APIs are included. Not only will the IDE give you hints for Corona code, but for your own functions as well! Save time with this great feature.
Find it. Quick and Easy.
Glider analyzes your code and finds all your functions and variables for a given file and formats it into an easy to use tree view. You can search it through it and jump to any element easily.
Beautify your Code.
Collapse any block of code to focus on coding instead of scrolling. Is your existing code haphazardly indented? Fix it with just a simple command!
Fully supports Git, SVN, and Mercurial versioning systems for large teams or even for individual developers wanting to easily share code with others or keep track of changes. All embedded in the IDE.See a screenshot »
Local File History
Never lose code again.
Undo/redo only goes back so far, but the local file history system goes back weeks even months. Quickly see the exact changes that were made and copy snippets of old code or revert the file entirely.See a screenshot »
Accelerometer from IDE.
Send accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and hardware key events to the simulator. No need to compile for device just to test event handler code. Debug your handlers fast!
Dock and undock windows as you see fit. You can even drag windows to different monitors for even more efficiency.
Change colors of the syntax to suit your taste. Also change hotkeys and key combos to match your coding style. Also fully zoomable.
Supported on both Mac and Windows. You will get both platforms upon purchase. Use on both machines if you like. Linux support soon.
Look and Feels
Dark, bright, orange, green, metallic, simple and many more themes to choose from. Download the trial today to try them all out!
Instant API Search
Glider can index custom API sites with its integrated web crawler. You can then instantly search the documentation from the IDE
Class Aware Autocomplete
The IDE not only knows the API functions, it knows how they play together. It can suggest parameters based on the parameter's class and give you a list of matching variables.
Want to see where a particular identifier was declared? Just control click and the IDE will take you there. It even works between modules!
You can define your own classes and functions the same way we have already done for the Library making the editor more aware of your code.
Want to see where an identifier is used in a file? Just highlight it. Its semantic based. Way more than just a simple text search.
