JIF – a java editor for Inform
2003-2016 Alessandro Schillaci
JIF is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), written entirely in Java, for the creation of text adventures based on Graham Nelson’s Inform standard. With JIF it’s possible to edit, compile and run a text adventure in the z-code and glulx formats.
Inform 7 has been developed with a new Integrated Editor but JIF can be used in any
Inform 6 or 7 Environments
The project has started in the 2003 and now it’s in a stable state for production.
This project is released under the GNU GPL Licence.
Since 3.6+ version, a Java Runtime 1.7 version is required.
