Run Support

We currently have basic support for Building projects. But we do not yet have the ability to launch the project and run it from a shortcut. This feature needs to be designed in such a way that anticipates adding a debugger later on.

It will involve determining what target to run (from the build system, including adding this plumbing to our build system abstraction and autotools plugin), as well as allowing the build configuration to specify the preferred run target.

We probably also want to run from an installed state. So we'll need plumbing added to IdeRuntime to support installation into the runtime.


  • Press a keyboard shortcut to run your application
  • Application should run as if it was installed (requires runtime integration)
  • Integrate with debugger APIs
  • Extensibility to run with a "simulator"
