[insert name] IF Editor

Run in your browser (requires Java 6+)

Download it

I found that writing IF as web pages using JavaScript produced nice interfaces. Unfortunately, actually writing all the necessary JavaScript ended up being cumbersome and verbose. The [insert name] IF Editor provides a light abstraction layer to eliminate much of this drudgery. The program is not necessarily intended as an "easy" tool for writing IF. It's a very bare bones system that merely automatically generates and wires up the more complicated data structures, allowing you to focus on the important bits of code.

The editor is written in Java, so you can run it as an applet in your browser. Due to the security limitations, when you run the editor in this way, some functionality will not work such as cut&paste and Java will often mix up file names and extensions when loading and saving things.

The preferred way to run this program is to download it. You can double-click the downloaded .jar file to run it.


I'm bad at naming things, so I'll give a proper name to the editor as soon as I think of something (I'll probably name it after the first game I write with it).

I'll put up the source code for this program later after I have had to time to clean it up a bit.
