Hi!
I created this thread so we can discuss useful tools that can help the U++ developer.

Here's a few I've tested:
1) TheIde (of course... it provides everything for coding, image editing, etc).

2) OpenProj ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/openproj/ ). Free alternative to MS Project. It's useful to plan the project tasks.

3) Pencil project ( http://pencil.evolus.vn/ ). I'm using the portable version. It can create sketches, diagrams and user interface prototypes.

4) GIMP. General image editing.

Tell me your tools Very Happy


Here's a simple sketch I made using Pencil Project:

I keep promoting buildbot. It allows to run distributed builds and do distributed testing, but nobody seems to be interested. Smile

For my diagram needs, I mostly use XCircuit: http://opencircuitdesign.com/xcircuit/

For everything related to documentation, when QTF is not suitable (e.g. distributable readable text files) I use AsciiDoc: http://www.methods.co.nz/asciidoc/

My 2 cents...

Microsoft Application Verifier is a pretty cool tool to test your app. It has GUI and CLI.

Graphviz can make nice diagrams.

Also, since Novo mentioned Buildbot, I must mention Watchdog Smile Not only the linked U++ instance, but it can be set up to track and test any SVN based project.

I just found MySQL Workbench.

It's a complete database IDE with UML, queries, script generation, etc.

We should write a "export to .SCH" plugin for it. It would kick ass! Smile

Nice idea!
But I propose to include tool like MySQL Workbench into TheIDE (maybe little simple than MySQL Workbench). By the way Anton Scorch already start this work about 2 years ago.

Nice one for complex Setups. Otherwise 7zip self-extractor is great too.

It checks for all kinds of problems with different APIs. It can simulate low resource situations, it can help to simulate all kinds of possible problems you won't be able to reproduce otherwise.

I have some bad feedbacks on report printing from my users, so I tested the Reports reference app with this Microsoft Application Verifier.
The result was an "Invalid handle exception" with a big stack backtrace.
I'm not very good in Windows internals, so was unable to find a fast way handle the problem. Could sombody check it?

I personally wasn't able to reproduce any problem with this app.

I would like to add lazy c++ chic. Maybe not external tools but they should be part of the programming suite.
