About this app

Cxxdroid is the most easy to use educational C and C++ IDE for Android.

- Offline C/C++ compiler: no Internet is required to run C/C++ programs.
- Package manager and a custom repository with prebuilt packages for common libraries, such as Boost, SQLite, ncurses, libcurl, etc.
- Graphics libraries such as SDL2, SFML* and Allegro* are also available.
- Examples available out-of-the-box for quicker learning.
- Full-featured Terminal Emulator.
- C/C++ interpreter mode (REPL) based on CERN Cling is also available.
- Outstanding performance with advanced compiler caching technology: upto 33 times faster when Boost library is used, 3x average speedup.
- Clean and mature architecture: now code is analyzed and compiled with the same compiler, and the IDE doesn't crash completely due to runtime errors in your programs :)
- UI designed with speed and usability in mind: forget about unobvious shortcuts or touch button combos required just to run your program.
- True compiler: no Java (or even Javascript) based interpreters involved, even inline assembler language is supported (Clang syntax).

Editor features:
- Real time code prediction, auto indentation and code analysis just like in any real IDE. *
- Extended keyboard bar with all symbols you need to program in C++.
- Syntax highlighting & themes.
- Tabs.
- One click share on Pastebin.

* Features marked by asterisk are available in Premium version only.

Important notice: Cxxdroid requires at least 150MB free internal memory. 200MB+ is recommended. More if you are using heavy libraries such as Boost.

Take a part in development of Cxxdroid by reporting bugs or providing feature requests to us. We appreciate that.

Incredibly useful app! When I leave a short file open I can compile and run it with one button, so, I can use it to quickly test out or do little things in C, almost like how I use the Python shell for Python. The biggest downside so far is the ads you have to wait a few seconds for every time you return to the code editor from the output screen.

I've tried several mobile IDEs, and this is the one I like most! Somehow it just works better. Just 3 comments: - the round "run" button at the bottom needs to be a bit higher, it prevents me from pressing the last autocomplete suggestion (paid version); - it would be nice if I could add a .clang-format file to me project and have the "clang tools-> format" button use it; - the selection of text (for copy/paste) is a bit hard to use. But it's really a great app! Thanks for this!

A really useful tool for developers on go, testing and fast prototyping. But still has room for extention. Boost version supported is old and required to be updated. Some concepts, features, idioms, traits, ... such as rate policy, stream traits, tcp stream and more not supported which are part of Beast and assist in fast development. Auto complete does not work and feels like a dumb terminal. Overall good. Thanks
