An open-source Java-based Linux desktop application for installing common development toolsets.
We've included all of the most common development toolsets, and more are always in the works.
Build packages for Linux and other operating systems with this essential set of tools. Includes: dpkg-dev, g++, gcc, libc6-dev, and make.
Some tools don't fit any one category, but every developer has them. Includes: Slack, Sublime Text, and Postman.
Containers are the future, and now it's easier to set them up than ever. Includes: Docker, Microk8s, Juju, Kubernetes, and LXD.
Java is one of the most commonly used and widely taught languages out there. Includes: OpenJDK8, and IntellIJ IDEA Community Edition.
Whether you're administrating or developing for servers and databases, this one's for you. Includes: MySQL Server and Client, MySQL Workbench, Apache, and PHP.
Developing for and administrating networks requires a few tools of its own as well. Includes: net-tools, and Wireshark.
Python is an incredibly versatile and easy-to-learn language, with its own set of tools. Includes: python3, pip, and PyCharm Community Edition.
No matter your language, collaboration with other coders requires a VCS tool. Includes: Git, Mercurial, Subversion, Meld, and GitKraken.
The web's three core languages, HTML CSS and JS, have a whole suite of tools and frameworks built around them. Includes: jQuery, Google Chrome, NodeJS, npm, ruby, sass, angular.js, and Brackets.
Note: the InspireKit has only been tested on Ubuntu 18.04+. It is unlikely to work on other distributions such as Debian or Fedora.
First, download the files from Github here by clicking "Clone or Download" and then "Download ZIP." Extract the contents.
Open your file manager as root. For instance, if I was using the Thunar file manager on an xfce-based Linux distribution, I would run "sudo thunar" in my terminal.
Using the file manager in root mode, copy the contents of each folder you've extracted into its respective location in the filesystem, denoted by the name of the folder. For instance, the contents of the folder "-usr-share-applications", which is the single file "inspirekit.desktop", should be copied into the folder /usr/share/applications/ on your system.
