Gambas is a free development and runtime environment based on a Basic interpreter, a bit like Microsoft Visual Basic (but it is not a clone) – http://gambas.sourceforge.net/. DomotiGa is written in Gambas and requires it to run. It is also recommended to start with the regular releases and not with the TRUNK releases (these are development releases). The TRUNK is only advised if you run into issues with the current release.
Currently there are 2 versions of Gambas available, they are Gambas 2.x and 3.x. The version 2.x isn't supported anymore by DomotiGa. Only use version 3.x with DomotiGa.
Working with the DomotiGa project¶
To open the project:
cd ~/domotiga/DomotiGa3/ gambas3To build the DomotiGa3.gambas executable
