The Amiga computers first introduced in 1985 feature outstanding graphic, sound and multitasking capabilities. Developing software for the Amiga is not hard job to do, once you have set up everything.
Here is a list of projects for the Amiga:
For development I use the AmigaOS4 Software Developer Kit (SDK), which includes GCC, the freeware compiler VBCC, from Aminet,
and the Native Developer Kit (NDK) 3.9, from the Amiga site. For the Assembler programs I use PhxAss (included with VBCC), with
the NDK assembly includes, and sometime AsmPro (available on Aminet).
Check the individual archives for sources (if included).
Other tools for development I mostly use, but not limited to, are Personal Paint 7.1, Brilliance 20.2, Deluxe Paint V, CygnusEd, OctaMED Soundstudio 7.09, AHX 2.0, CharMap 2.0, DeliTracker 2.32,
ASM-One 1.48, AWeb-II, IBrowse, Directory Opus, Tunenet, OWB. For the specific developing task like converting from one format to another or exporting data sometime I write my own programs or use freeware available replacements.
If some tool or utility is not available directly on the Amiga, I use emulators or online based services for processing the data and receiving the results. My current development environment is Workbench based with shell
command window opened, text editor and workbench. All the other programs are invoked from there. Separate screen with Directory Opus is used for copy of files, rename, replacements and file views.
