Software development for AROS

Are there any C++ development tools for AROS? Since AROS is x86 compatible, could you write AROS apps with Visual Studio C++? You'd probably need some libs to link with the AROS OS. Is there an AROS emulator for Windows/DOS like UAE or WinUAE?

What is AROS One in relation to AROS?

Please check this post, it describes the basics on setting up development for AROS on Windows or Linux.

https://arosworld.org/infusions/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=1201&pid=4162#post_4162

In short: Yes, you can use IDE like Visual Studio Code (I use it on a daily basis) and you can "emulate" AROS through AROS hosted (so no need to test on real hardware). The added value of AROS hosted is that you can use gdb to debug your programs.

If you have additional questions, please let me know.

@thinkchip

- AROS x86 can be run on VMs such as VMware, VirtualBox and QEmu, and can also be used as mentioned by deadwood Hosted Linux or Hosted Windows.

- AROS 68k you can instead run on WinUAE, E-UAE and other Amiga emulators

There are also other versions of AROS for different architectures, albeit less up-to-date!

AROS One exists in both x86 and 68k versions, AROS One is a Distribution of mine that is based on the "deadwood" Build, complete with all the best third-party software, plus it has a modern graphical look with custom backgrounds and icons.

Sadly there are no Windows emulation libs for AROS, so you can't port a Viscual C++ programm to AROS by changing the compiler setting or adding some links.

There is some kind of Delphi / FreePscal port for AROS ( AOS3.x, MOs, AOS4 ) that that could be used to create applications running on all those system and could be ported easily to Windows.

AROS One relates to AROS like Ubuntu to Linux/GNU , it's a distribution that is (or might) bring with it a lot of tools and packages and some installation help for a standard PC.

You can try it on a virtual machine (VMWare, VirtualBox) and (maybe) on a live system when booting from DVD/USB.
I would recommend trying this first before setting up a dual boot system.

Also you can use Hollywood and make executables for all Amiga systems and others.
