ctrlX CORE - IDE App

Community Manager

The IDE app provides various development environments (coding, debugging, etc.), which can be used to create program sequences for ctrlX CORE.  

Currently the IDE app is available in two versions

Textual Coding represents a web-based development environment (code editor, console, debugging, etc.) with native ctrlX CORE connectivity. It can be used to create Python scripts or edit files in the active solution.

Visual Coding provides a programming framework (code editor, debugger, project management, configuration, etc.) for creating programs based on visual elements, Python and JavaScript. The active editor language can be switched at any time, so that collaborative work is possible.

Textual Coding - Browser based IDE

The IDE app runs directly on the control hardware and is operated via web browser. No development environment on an engineering PC is required.

Visual Coding - Block View

The advantage of Visual Coding corresponds to the key advantage of Low Code: the fast and agile development of programs. There is no need to write lines of code manually. The programmer does not have to deal with the specifics of the programming language, such as syntax, but intuitively uses predefined program elements, e.g. for variable handling, program loops, control instructions or motion commands. By assembling the building blocks via drag & drop and their parameterization, the program flow is successively created. The actual program code in Python or JavaScript is created automatically in the background.
