Portable Intellivision Development Environment (PIDE)

Intellivision Development Environment on Android Phone

Older environment on a 2016 phone. It's vastly improved since then.

I created a way to write Intellivision games that requires only an Android phone and a keyboard. All the games I developed going forward were within this very environment. To give back to the development community, I maintain instructions on how to create this environment and even created a YouTube video tutorial.

The documentation on the linked page highlights my writing style and documentation ability. This is amplified by the supplemental YouTube video, where I demonstrate installing this environment onto a new device.

Modern versions resemble a full Linux desktop environment and run best with an Android tablet, keyboard, and mouse. A pair of Python GUI applications obviate writing BASH scripts manually, as in the beginning.

I included this project on this page because it is written in Python. A number of educators have expressed interest in knowing how I developed GUI applications using Python scripting.
