Is there a "Visual Basic for Mac"?

316 Contributor
hi all

i am not much of an application programmer but i somehow got a contract to build a fairly substantial database application for a nonprofit that runs entirely on Macs. i could have a VB application pumped out in about two weeks for this but everything is macs, so i installed MAMP (an apache, mysql, PHP install) on their server and have been using php but this is not really what php is made for. i was wondering if there was a simple easy (VB like) way of programing for Macs, i know very little Java, or Python and i don't even know if they would be what i need. but if anyone knows a good way of making a python program with lots of forms or another language that would work i would love the help

Not VB compatible but not to different either: Gambas.

I don't know if it works on OS/X, though.

From the Gambas FAQ:

Gambas should compile. Anyway, it will crash because of bugs in endianness management. I need an ssh access to a PowerPC computer to fix that!

I thought that *the* development language for this thing is Objective C and the 'Next Step' framework (there's also Gnu Step for other machines).

kind regards,

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
