MyStudio IDE: Sunsetting the project


2 min read


I wanted to make a quick blog post regarding my decision to archive the MyStudio IDE project.

This project has been a huge learning opportunity for me in terms of developing GUI applications, GTK toolkit, and Rust programming language.

The IDE is more than 2 years old and was a fun little project to pick up and work on on and off. As one might've noticed, there haven't been any new commits since February.

I would like to thank the "Rust India Telegram group" for guiding me with a feature I had originally planned. Their insight into the problem made me realise some major architecture-level problems needed to be fixed.

This means a rewrite of the project was necessary but that requires a deeper understanding of multi-threaded applications and async Rust.

After a lot of R&D on this a few times in the past year, I realised I need to learn more to develop it at a level I can be proud of and make this IDE worth someone's time. I couldn't write a half-baked code on a project I love.

Hence, it is with a heavy heart, this project has reached its end on 11 November 2023. The project's GitHub repo has also been archived.

I might work on something else in the future and it could be an IDE but nothing's set in stone yet.

Thank you for your time!

Happy Diwali to you and your family! ๐Ÿช”

Bye for now :-)
