Ubuntu Make 15.09.2 enables you to install Android SDK only.

I'm proud to announce this new Ubuntu Make release, with excellent new feature and fixes from our community. First, welcome Sebastian Schubert to the Ubuntu Make contributor family. He did some awesome work on implementing Android SDK only support (for those not wanting to install the whole Android Studio bundle) in Ubuntu Make! As usual, this is backed up with large and medium tests to cover us, great enhancement! :)

Ubuntu Make community releases 0.6 with 5 new supported platforms

What always inspires me in my work is that community participation is at heart of what we are doing, and that’s what help us waking up everyday. Anybody can dive and fix small typos, bugs, or even bring big features to the table! This is exactly what happened with this new Ubuntu Make 0.6 release, entirely backed by community participation! In addition to zsh support, you will find 5 new jetbrains IDE supported into the “ide” Ubuntu Make category, which are: RubyMine, PyCharm educational edition, PyCharm professional, WebStorm and PhpStorm!

Ubuntu Make 0.5 adds four new platforms

Hot from the builders, we just cut a big release of Ubuntu Make 0.5 bringing fresh new support to a bunch of IDEs and programming languages! Web developers will see great enhancements in this release, but other developers are not left out! We welcome first a new “web” category which is hosting Dart support now! Dartlang fans would be able to get the editor and sdk installed, registered in the OS and added to the launcher in a simple command!

Ubuntu Make 0.3 brings Intellij IDEA and Pycharm support

Thanks to the continuous awesome work of Tin Tvrtković, we can now cut out a new 0.3 of Ubuntu Make (ex Ubuntu Developer Tools Center). This one features 2 new great IDEs (under the ide category): Intellij IDEA and Pycharm, in their respective community editions. We want to thank as well the JetBrains team to have kindly provided checksums for their downloading assets so that Ubuntu Make can check the download integrity.

Eclipse and android adt support now in Ubuntu Developer Tools Center

Eclipse and Android ADT support now in Ubuntu Developer Tools Center Now that the excellent Ubuntu 14.10 is released, it's time to focus as part of our Ubuntu Loves Developers effort on the Ubuntu Developer Tools Center and cutting a new release, bringing numerous new exciting features and framework support! 0.1 Release main features Eclipse support Eclipse is now part of the Ubuntu Developer Tools Center thanks to the excellent work of Tin Tvrtković who implemented the needed bits to bring that up to our users!

Ubuntu Developer Tools Center: how do we run tests?

We are starting to see multiple awesome code contributions and suggestions on our Ubuntu Loves Developers effort and we are eagerly waiting on yours! As a consequence, the spectrum of supported tools is going to expand quickly and we need to ensure that all those different targeted developers are well supported, on multiple releases, always delivering the latest version of those environments, at anytime. A huge task that we can only support thanks to a large suite of tests!

Ubuntu loves Developers

Ubuntu is one of the best Linux platforms with an awesome desktop for regular users (and soon phone and tablets and more!) and great servers for system administrators and devops. A number of developers are choosing Ubuntu as their primary development system of choice, even if they develop for platforms other than Ubuntu itself, like doing some Android development, web development and so on. However, even if we fill the basic needs for this audience, we decided a few months ago to start a development and integration effort to make those users completely feel at home.

Android ICS on wetab (exopc slate)!

Spend few hours installing Android ICS (Cyanogenmod built for x86) on my exopc tablet and playing with it. I've never been impressed by Meego installed on it as a developer preview, performance and feature-wise. I've found yesterday evening those instructions and links about a corvusmod rebuild of cynagenmod and I gave it a try! Of course, as this is not an arm device but x86 one, not a lot of applications are working out of the box, but overall, the UI is totally functional and browsing the web is a delightful experience.
