ChocolateCastle project selectorChocolateCastle is an application making task of creating MUI classes and applications easier. Programmers using this system often avoid writing custom classes, being discouraged by a lot of boring and schematical typing. This is bad, because subclassing is the essence of the object oriented programmimg. It allows to get the best from MUI. That is why ChocolateCastle has been created. A significant part of a typical custom class may be generated automatically. This is usually 2 to 5 kB of source code. Automating this work speeds programmimg up and helps avoiding simple typing errors.

The current version of ChocolateCastle is able to generate internal (contained in an application source) MUI class. Generated code is directly compilable under MorphOS. A programmer gets a ready skeleton of class, containing definition of class base, functions for class creation and disposition, Hook and EmulLibEntry structures for dispatcher, complete dispatcher code, OM_SET and OM_GET skeletons and empty functions for declared methods. A header file is generated as well, containing extern class base definition, prototypes for class creation and disposition functions and basic includes. The work can be saved to a project file, which can be loaded later. With incoming ability to edit methods code in-place (built-in editor based on TextEditor MUI class), ChocolateCastle will become a small integrated environment for programming MUI classes. The future plan is to expand ChocolateCastle functionality to building complete MUI applications compiling out of the box.
