ProjectCenter is GNUstep's Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It is based in part on NeXT's original Project Builder application under OPENSTEP4.2/Mach. It assists you in starting new projects and lets you manage your project files using an intuitive and well-ordered graphical user interface.

Current Version: 0.7.0

  • Released: See February 3, 2023

Over a decade ago, NeXT Computer Inc. revolutionized application development by making two great developer tools available for their operating system OPENSTEP: Project Builder and Interface Builder. These applications made application development much easier and faster and took NeXT ahead of the other computer manufacturers and operating system vendors.

Supporting the project types 'Application', 'Bundle', 'Library', 'Tool', and 'Aggregate', ProjectCenter automatically creates the project makefiles and aids you in the process of editing, project compilation, package building, and debugging. In the future, built-in CVS support will be available, too.


ProjectCenter is a very useable application, but is still evolving. Support is there for project creation and inspection as well as basic Makefile generation. Using the 'Application' project type, you can already create graphical applications using ProjectCenter and Gorm in conjunction.


Serg Stoyan is the current maintainer of ProjectCenter. Please contact him if you would like to submit a bug report or volunteer to improve ProjectCenter. The original author of ProjectCenter, Philippe C.D. Robert, no longer actively contributes to the application.
