Subject Re: New IDE for Groovy web development
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:12:23 GMT
Wow! Looks interesting and I'd like to try it out.I'm having trouble with the documentation
at HiveMind User Guide. I have downloaded and unzipped. The documentation says to right click
on a directory and select new->web app. Well that does not work -- probably because I have
not finished the installation to register crudzilla with windows explorer. Where are the installation
instructions that explain what to do after unzipping?Thankssiegfried

 Hello Groovy Users,

I am the developer of Hivemind (, it is a web application platform that
greatly simplifies web application development on the JVM. It also supports a bunch of languages
that have been ported to the JVM (Python, Groovy, Ruby, Javascript, Closure). It has a lot
of interesting ideas that I think you'll enjoy exploring.

The full product and source code is available for download on our site, including rich documentation.

This IDE is different from traditional options out there in two key ways:

1) It is a completely integrated solution that combines an application server (jetty), a Middleware
and a browser based IDE. You simply start it and get to work building applications.

2)It is designed for dynamic languages and is based on JSR-223. This means you can use these
dynamic languages on the JVM with ease to build standard Java web applications. In fact the
back-end of the IDE is built completely in Groovy via JSR-223 scripting, in other words the
product is self referencing and uses its own constructs in its own construction.

I want to share with the community and hope to get some helpful feedback. Happy to answer
any questions.
