Border-less full-screen console app in Ultibo

I made my first project in Ultibo and compiled some example one. Everything was just fine (actually — perfect), if not for that green border with Ultibo name and release version.

Don’t get me wrong. I already love UItibo and will spread the word. But, for security reasons, I’d like to get rid of any info that clearly communicates what was used to build particular piece of software.

Fortunately, with a small research (here and here), it turned out that the solution is very easy.

Developing for Raspberry Pi with Ultibo

Building apps that will be run on Raspberry Pi will require you in most scenarios to:

  • Develop a regular Linux app
  • Optimised to use hardware and computing power of Raspberry Pi
  • Run it in Raspbian OS or any other Linux distribution of your choice

If you:

  • Can’t or don’t want to base your solution on Linux
  • Need to have nearly no limits and full fexibility
  • Want to learn something really cool

Then you need to get your hands dirty, forget about Linux and start thinking about Ultibo.

What the heck is this? Well… to cite its creators (emphasis and shortening mine):

Ultibo is a complete embedded development environment written specifically for creating applications with small single board computers. It uses many concepts from general operating system design and even borrows information from Linux, but Ultibo is not based on anything else.

Yes, it is what it sounds! No Linux, no console (unless you develop one!), no distro installation. Free Pascal (other languages also partially supported), Lazarus IDE (on any platform), and Raspberry Pi as a target (other platforms also partially covered).

And they’ve told us that Delphi and Pascal programming is long gone and forgotten… Ha! :)
