Hi @elpie89, I added your guide to the sidebar, adjusted some formatting, and named the pages similar to other pages in the wiki, e.g. CodeBlocks BuildRun became CodeBlocks Compilation and such.

I also fixed some grammar, and updated links to look the same across pages.

Do you think you could add the part where the user actually writes the code as well, from a CodeBlocks perspective?

For example, I've never used CodeBlocks, and wouldn't know how to start. There is an empty page called CodeBlocks writing hello world that you could start out with.

ehi @mottosso ,in the https://github.com/learnclang/1-helloworld/wiki/CodeBlocks-Compilation i had written about the helloworld,we no need to write the hello world because the main on CodeBlocks start with the right code already

Not sure, we'll have to come up with something fun
Do you have any ideas?
We still have a way to go with the terminal application too
It isn't conplete without a guide frim start to finish about how to make it
With explanations of each new topic, uncluding research and discussion about alternatives
And finally, a distributable program that we can download and use

We could, but my hope is that we should be able to understand and reason about every single comand and technique we use when developing new software, and that we should get there by slowly taking on new functionality of the language.
Heading from here to Qt is a massive jump, not only due to Qt being a huge framework but also because Qt is using C++
What do you think?

Its a good idea for a future project, let's keep thinking of simpler ones too
Simple projects are the hardest to find :)

@mottosso I agree with your sentiment, but please know that you’ll never understand every single command and technique in software development.

I'll consider that a challenge. ;)

Might as well attempt to cross the planes of existence. :)
I commend your attitude, though. :)
