GPS is a free software multi-platform and multi-language integrated development environment (IDE). It provides a wide range of tools integrated together, and features particularly powerful source navigation capabilities. GPS also integrates GVD, the GNU Visual Debugger, and replaces it.
The gps_installer is a GTK+ application used to integrate custom Ada library projects into the Gnat Programming Studio (GPS). The installer is designed to be as simple as possible. It takes the directory where the source files are located and the list of files to install. The installer tries to figure out where to move the files and how to process them. No specific actions need to be specified.
The library is a contribution to GtkAda, an Ada bindings to GTK+ toolkit. It deals with the following issues: tasking support; custom models for tree view widget; custom cell renderers for tree view widget; multi-columned derived model; an extension derived model (to add columns to an existing model); an abstract caching model for directory-like data; tree view and list view widgets for navigational browsing of abstract caching models; file system navigation widgets with wildcard filtering; resource styles; capturing the resources of a widget; embeddable images; some missing sub-programs and bugfixes; a measurement unit selection widget and dialogs; an improved hue-luminance-saturation color model; simplified image buttons and buttons customizable by style properties; controlled Ada types for GTK+ strong and weak references; and a simplified means to create lists of strings.
