Geany IDE

Documentation for Geany can be found at

It was installed on a Raspberry Pi (running Raspbian/Linux) with

sudo apt-get install geany

I started with a simple hello world program in C. There were no real surprises with this simple project. Geany worked like a typical IDE. Meaning I was able to create the project, create a simple c file, build the project and run the result from within the IDE.

The compiled hello world program can now also be run from the command line.

This shows that our APSC1299/Physics1600 students could create simple programs that will run on an ARM based Raspberry Pi board with the the knowledge they gain in their existing courses.
