SpiderBasic IDE on Chromebooks

by Charlie Sat Feb 23, 2019 3:11 pm

I decided to upgrade to an CB515-1HT Chromebook to (aside from bigger display for my aging eyes) to run SpiderBasic on ChromeOS.

Not every Chromebook allows setting up Linux (Beta) for installation and running of Linux apps. So desire to run SpiderBasic on Chromebook finally triggered the new purchase (my C720P Chromebook is too old for setting up installation of Linux apps.)

Although not necessarily for the faint at heart (i.e. not for your typical Chromebook owner), I know just enough about Linux to get this working.

If anybody else is interested in how all of this works, please check out the screenshot link below. If you have any questions, please ask away and I'll answer the best I can !

Installation/Configuration Notes:

G'day,

Just a little bump to let anybody interested know: almost a year in, and SpiderBasic (Linux 64-bit version) continues to run flawlessly on my Chromebook.

Fred, if you happen to see this. Might not be so bad for you to mention somewhere that (at least for one community member) SpiderBasic runs A-1 on a Chromebook.

To me, SpiderBasic is the coolest thing around for the hobby programmer who happens to prefer Chromebooks at home.


Cheer and best regards !

Thanks for the info. Do you use the Linux x64 version ?
