CrossKylix is a free toolkit to integrate the Borland Kylix (Delphi for Linux) compiler into the Delphi IDE.

This project was created for people who wish to develop cross-platform applications with Delphi, without the need to switch between Linux/Kylix and Windows/Delphi all the time. The project is best suited for usage in web applications, packages and components, but crosscompiling of visual CLX projects is also supported.

Up until developing cross-platform with Delphi required you to have a seperate Linux installation (either on a dedicated box or inside VMWare) to recompile your project for the Linux platform. With CrossKylix this is no longer needed - you are able to build your project using the Kylix compiler from directly inside your Windows Delphi IDE, without the requirement of a local Linux system.

CrossKylix has the following features:

  • Allows you to compile native Linux applications from inside the Delphi IDE.
  • Console projects, packages and visual CLX applications are fully supported.
CrossKylix is perfectly integrated into the Delphi IDE - you will get compile warnings, hints and error messages, and be able to jump to the lines in question by clicking on the message pane the same way as with the internal Delphi compiler.

Makes Kylix Application deployment easier than ever - no need to install Kylix shared objects to /usr/lib, no need to create startup scripts for your Application.

Very high Linux emulation speed - low compile times.

A command line compiler (ckdcc) is included.

It automatically fixes the Kylix exec-shield bug during compilation.

New: Now also compatible with Windows 7.
