    What language would/do you use to make homebrew for Switch?
    Just curiosity, to see what do devs like to use...

    Obviously some of them cannot be used to make homebrew for the moment.
    I mean, which language you think would make homebrew development easier and more accessible for other devs.

    English usually, if people want my software in another language they can fork and translate it since it's usually open source.

    In fact I meant programming language, but OK.
    Could somebody change this thread's title to:

    C or C++. C for simple stuff, C++ if you plan to have an elaborate UI or multiple screens or threads for your app.

    You can report your own post and ask for that to be done, if a mod doesn't see it first.

    I'd use c, tho if I were porting something in c++ I'd be ok with that.

    Gambia, The
    C or C++ should be prefered over every interpreted language (python and javascript) because the interpreter could contain bugs and limitations that are not in libnx and libnx already has enough problems.
