OCaml-top is a GTK-based editor coupled with an OCaml top-level, providing straight forward evaluation controls, built-in syntax coloring and forced visual indentation. It's cross-platform and specially tailored for students and lab sessions.
A simple cross-platform OCaml code editor built for top-level evaluation.
Full functionality on Windows
Syntax coloration and indentation
Easy documentation access
The preferred way is
opam install ocaml-top (or
opam pin add ocaml-top . from the source directory). The following explains how to compile directly, and on Windows.
jbuilder. You should just need to run
jbuilder build from the root of the project. You will need
ocp-index installed too.
To build on Windows, you will need cygwin with mingw32, and the mingw ocaml distribution (not cygwin !). See
utils/mkwin.sh which may help you setup the build environment (contains the URLs of required installers and packages, and contains code to install the correct gtk distribution with sourceview and prerequisite, fix pkgconfig, and compile lablgtk with gtksourceview support). You will also need
ocp-indent and (for completion/doc)
ocp-index, which should be as simple as
make -f Makefile.simple install.
