A minimalist IDE for Microsoft .NET

Take control of your development tools...

QuickSharp is a streamlined integrated development environment for Microsoft's .NET platform. It provides a simple, uncluttered development approach that lets you get programming in an instant. QuickSharp doesn't use solutions or projects, programs and libraries are developed as individual files making development a breeze. With QuickSharp you can work closer to the .NET Framework development tools and get to grips with the most advanced development platform for Windows from the ground up.

QuickSharp is not just a development environment, it's also a lightweight application framework which can be easily modified and extended using a simple plugin-based architecture. The QuickSharp IDE is developed entirely using this framework and you can use it to create your own highly customized development environments.
