I always looked for cross-platform tools that allow for a single, platform-agnostic code base. Juce does a great job in this regard. Maintaining large scale projects in C++ however is a challenge. I’d rather have a dynamically typed language with reflection, garbage collection and closures (blocks).
How about wrapping an Objective-C API layer around Juce? This would allow the application code to be dynamic Objective-C while running on all Juce-supported platforms.
The main reason Objective-C is not widely used on Windows is a lack of bindings to the platform. There are OPENSTEP/GNUStep and Cocotron (http://www.cocotron.org), but these follow a different direction. Using Juce instead as the common denominator for all platforms would be great.
Would that be a stupid endeavour? Do I miss something? Anyone also interested in evaluating this? Anyone already failed doing so?
