  • Description: Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. There are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning and prototyping:

» Free to download and open source
» Interactive programs with 2D, 3D or PDF output
» OpenGL integration for accelerated 2D and 3D
» For GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, Android, and ARM
» Over 100 libraries extend the core software
» Well documented, with many books available
It should be mentioned that the PDE (Processing Development Environment) is released under the GNU GPL (General Public License). The export libraries (also known as 'core') are released under the GNU LGPL (Lesser General Public License). Moreover, the PDE manage it with Stable Releases, where the last one is the 3.3.6 version (4 September 2017).

  • Dear Solus Team, you should include this IDE into the repository because Processing it is definetely one of the most underrated development tools (for mobile applications) out there as I've read and I've experienced, and I really want to have this in my day-to-day (Solus OS) laptop because it is so frustrating to work with it just at home through my computer desktop.
  • It is completely open source and it provides 3 versions of it for Linux Kernel (64-bit, 32-bit and ARMv6hf). The source coude for the IDE here:
  • And here is the source repository of all stuff involved in Processing:
  • I'm so sorry for my ignorance, I think is because I'm basically a newbie on this, but I don't know what do you mean with the Source Zipfile Link and the Upstream Releases. But in those provided links are more than enough information about the source code and other technical stuff that I don't know at all.
  • Please I will definetely be grateful if you can get this great IDE in the Software Center because on these days I'm working a lot of projects based on this (btw I'm in highschool), thus I would work on it wherever I want (I'm always carrying my laptop with me) in my favourite Linux Distro. Also this is an opportunity to make this known to people that maybe are willing to meet its characteristics and all the stuff you can do with it. Thanks in advance.

Josh you can take a look:
Please I really want this Development Environment on Solus! That would make some of us satisfied and very happy.
If I could know how to install it just from the webpage I will do it but I don't have that knowledge, I'm just a newbie :(

This tool looks really useful. @notarainbow

Given nobody has stepped up since this has been accepted for inclusion to provide a valid and accepted patch, as well as become the maintainer, marking as WONTFIX.
