The experiment that was ClarionWiki has come to an end. The long awaited discourse discussion platform has reached enough maturity for me to be able to install and manage it so I found an excuse and ClarionHub is born!!

Once again this is an experiment but already I have found a good use for it as a part of the addin. The API for pulling things out of Discourse is pretty neat and easy to use, I see good things ahead.

Please head over to , sign up and start discussing stuff.


Wow, CIDC2013 was great right? Check out the session recording of! It sure is time for an update though… I am in the process of upgrading the code to Bootstrap 3.0 along with a whole bunch of other changes and hopefully a few quick feature additions along the way. Once that is complete I am back to working on the AddinManager support which is so desperately needed!

More info here or on twitter or wherever as it comes in. Thanks for all those using the beta and please leave a comment or send some feedback if you have any ideas or questions!

As mentioned in a previous post I have been working on a new StartPage for the Clarion IDE. This resulted in a crash course of ruby, jekyll, html, javascript and a whole bunch of other things in the last week with me scrabbling madly to get some structure in place for the new project. The details are still in a huge amount of flux but the basic idea is to have a super useful IDE StartPage that looks great and does what you need, and of course a bunch of other things you might need sometimes or might not but are also cool 🙂

Update 23 July 2013 – I have added another screenshot!!!

Update 29 July 2013 – Another screenshot, almost ready for general beta release!!

At the same time I am working hard on bringing all the ClarionAddins into the fold and compatibility with Clarion9 along the way. This is progressing well and I hope to have some results in a few weeks. The major push for the outline of this work is pretty much done. The next step is to workup a more details road-map showing what features are coming up and their expected delivery dates.

So this is really just a teaser at the moment but please ask questions and send feature requests!

Beta v2.1!



p.s. <– I finally found an excuse to grab me an IO domain

This is something I have been wanting to work on for a long, long time. I think that I finally have all the technical aspect sorted that will allow me to make this happen. Now it is just a matter of time, money and effort… ahh, for more rainy days 🙂

The “dashboard” is vaguely modelled on the VS2012 version with the Start and Recent items there to the left. I figure the “News Feeds” could be configurable and possibly for more than just RSS/Twitter type feeds but for now I think this is a good start.

Some of the ideas I have planned:
