    So all that stuff is really confusing everything is just made of scripts, I can't imagine how all those people where able to build homebrew applications without a gui which shows what they are doing, so any chance that there will be an engine for this like Visual Studio and Unity3d which I am working with?

    I use VS2015 for homebrews. No problem.
    If you want more like a "push button -> receive bacon" setup, maybe you'd want to become a Ninty official developer.

    In that bara manga ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Probably not in the near future but it sounds like a good project to work on.

    Well, most of the homebrew apps are made with C/C++. If you know C/C++ and you have the compilers, you can make homebrew apps without having visual clues of what are you doing.

    Having a visual development framework would be good for beginners, but i don't think someone would bother making that if you can already make programs without it.

    Um so its possible to use vs to develop homebrew? Also actually saw that the new 3ds got unity3d support but I actually don't have a clue how to use unity to make a 3ds application, I didn't even know it was possible, theres actually a lot of new thibgs happened to homebrew development sonce ive last tried to develop something for the 3ds

    Here's my advice: Stop looking for solutions like this. Nothing in homebrew will *ever* be drag and drop unless you use Nintendo's SDK, but if you use Nintendo's SDK you cannot release your apps anywhere outside of the eShop.

    You know how something will look by testing, simple as that. Emulators like Citra are excellent for this, because you can set up scripts to compile and then run the result through Citra to look at it. If it doesn't look how you want, change your code and repeat.

    Also, every user using a visual development program always make the same complaints about how limited it is (implying the program doesn't have code support of some sort).

    I said I use VS, but never mentioned unity. VS is configured so it calls the very same makefile as you would do by hand. VS debugging is off. Citra-qt is chainloaded on run. But I have project support, snippets, Intellisense and that kind of helpful things.

    Debugging is vastly improved when you develop a good logging system for your homebrew.
