Write and run QuickBASIC 4.5 programs, just like in the 70s
BabaBASIC lets you write and run QuickBASIC 4.5-compatible programs on your Android device, enabling you to reminisce of the prehistoric computing era.
Why I am making this?
I made this app because my father, who was a programmer in the 80s, asked me to find him an Android app to showcase programming to others using QuickBASIC. I couldn’t find anything that I felt comfortable recommending to him, so I pulled an all-nighter and made this.
Running on the command-line
./gradlew :bbasic:build java -jar bbasic/build/libs/bbasic-standalone.jar INPUT.BAS
Standing on the shoulders of giants
- BabaBASIC started as fork of mayuropensource/PuffinBASIC, but it’s been modified significantly to match QuickBASIC 4.5.
