Lazarus

IBExpert offers professional support for Lazarus

We have used Lazarus and Firebird for the development of our own projects for some years now.

Lazarus is based on Embarcadero Delphi (formerly Borland Delphi), in contrast to other integrated development environments (IDE) for Pascal, which have a user interface similar to Turbo Pascal. The Lazarus Component Library (LCL) is very similar to Borland Delphi's VCL. Most units, classes and properties have the same name and the same functionality. Lazarus is suitable even for developers of proprietary software as the LCL component library is licensed under the terms of a modified LGPL.

Lazarus enables the rapid creation of graphical user interfaces (GUI) and currently provides support for the graphics libraries (widget toolkits) GTK+ and GTK2 (with Gnome support), Qt, Carbon (Mac OS X), Windows CE and WinAPI (Win32 Forms) to a high level of abstraction, which makes the generated code in conjunction with Free Pascal platform independent to a high degree.

Source code, once generated, can usually be compiled and run seamlessly on the supported operating systems (currently notably on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows).
