Like many Xojo developers, I often use virtual machines for testing. Over time the virtual machine disk files can get pretty large, even if you…

I’m happy to report that the Xojo engineers have overcome the hurdles that prevented building for macOS from Windows and Linux. The ability to cross-compile macOS apps from Windows and Linux will return in Xojo 2021r3.
Did you love Visual Basic? A lot of us did, but it’s 2021 and technology is ever-changing. As you look at the modern alternatives, consider Xojo. For over 20 years, Xojo has been the spiritual successor to VB, a rapid, cross-platform programming language and integrated development environment (IDE). Often called “VB for the Mac”, Xojo is more powerful than VB6 and more approachable than VB.NET. Two factors that are increasingly important because modern coders are everywhere, not just in the technology department.
You can package your Xojo Web Apps in a Docker Image. That allows you to run an instance of your applications easily in a Docker Container. Docker provides the infrastructure to host the apps, start/stop them, switch between image versions – and much more.
Learn to program a simple but entertaining game as an introduction to the Xojo programming language. In this game the computer calculates a random number between 1 and 100 and we have to guess it. Follow this tutorial…
First available on iOS, staring with 2021 Release 1 you can now also use the Rotate, Translate, SaveState and RestoreState methods with Desktop projects.
Learn to build a reusable Gravatar Connection class for web, desktop and iOS apps using the Gravatar API.
Over the years, the list of technologies upon which Apple depends has grown longer. These technologies provide a great deal of benefit both to developers and end users. Fortunately, Apple provides, supports and maintains the tools required to use these technologies at no cost to developers. Unfortunately, Apple only provides tools that run on macOS.
Xojo Engineers Paul and Travis talk about Xojo 2020 Release 2 and Apple M1 Macs.
With the newly released M1 Macs, there have been lots of questions about being able to run other operating systems on it, particularly from developers that are used to running Window or Linux in Virtual Machines using virtualization on their Intel Macs.
