Xojo is a programming environment for software development targeting Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, 32-bit x86 Linux, as well as the web. Xojo uses a proprietary object-oriented programming language, also known as Xojo. Using Xojo, developers can create applications by using drag-and-drop to build their user interface and then use one programming language to enable the functionality of their application.
With built-in support for graphics, database servers, internet protocols and more, you can build just about anything you can imagine with Xojo. Using Xojo, you can make commercial software products, utilities to help make your life easier, or even learn to program. In fact, Xojo itself is a Xojo app!
Build Apps 10x Faster
Xojo is a modern, object-oriented language. It supports inheritance, interfaces, polymorphism and is strongly-typed as well. There are thousands of differences in OS API calls and Xojo abstracts you from these details, dramatically reducing development time and allowing you to focus on what makes your application unique.
Xojo apps don't have an interpreter or virtual machine - they're compiled to machine code for fast execution and the protection of your intellectual property. Xojo uses native controls so your app looks and feels right on each platform. Development is multi-platform as well. Create your project on your favorite OS and then build it for any platform Xojo supports.
To start creating your first app, you'll build your user interface by dragging items onto your window - a push button, a field, a slider. You'll resize and rearrange until it's just right.
Next it's time to give your app life! You'll use the Code Editor, combined with our straightforward language, to program the functionality of your app.
