Cascades Builder for BlackBerry 10 now available

Cascades Builder is an extension to the Momentics IDE, providing developers with tooling features for developing Cascades applications for BlackBerry 10.

RIMs goal with Cascades Builder is to increase developers’ efficiency by offering advanced source editing features like code completion, enabling UI profiling and debugging, and offering features like visual editors to design and implement the UI without writing code.

“This is a first public beta release, and while not all these goals have been reached, they have come a long way in providing some unique and powerful features!

We realise that what matters most to you as a developer is a solid source editor, an editor that simply allows you to write as many lines of code in an as short time as possible. But we also realise the need for instant feedback, the need to try out ideas, to tweak application UI’s pixel positions and margins, and to see the result instantly. We know that you want to get immediate feedback and not have to wait a full change-compile-deploy cycle.”

With that said, let’s go through the features of Cascades Builder to demonstrate how you can achieve that desired instant feedback.
