Gambas

Gambas

Gambas is a free development environment based on a Basic interpreter with object extensions.

It is inspired by Visual Basic and Java. Although it has some similarities with Visual Basic, Gambas is not a clone.

With Gambas, you can design your application's Graphical User Interface with QT or GTK+, access MySQL, PostgreSQL, Firebird, ODBC and SQLite databases, pilot KDE applications with DCOP, translate your program into any language, code network applications easily, create 3D OpenGL applications, develop CGI web applications, and much more.

Gambas has a component architecture that allows users to extend the language. Anyone can write components as shared libraries that dynamically add new native classes to the interpreter.
