Okay so by now you are probably wondering what the deal is with HARDCODE. Well its actually very simple. Hardcode is an IDE (integrated development environment) that is designed to take programming to the next level. Now what exactly do we mean by the next level? Well, to put it simply (which is not an easy task) we aim to make HARDCODE the best and most versatile IDE system that allows massive teams to collaborate in real time, while using an interface that makes you feel like you are at the controls of the USS enterprise, or working in Tony Starks' personal lab.
Hardcode features a sophisticated project management system that takes out all the fuss in working with multiple files in multiple locations, be it local or remote, hardcode can integrate immediately with any existing project / filesystem and immediately model a project that will bring everything you are working with, into one place.
Because teamwork is a massive part of any project, we have built a live text collaboration platform that allows multiple users to edit a single document in realtime, and also gain access to the sophisticated models that HardCode dynamically builds while you are working. You (the file owner) can even give users remote permission to save and revert project changes should you need a quick coffee break or a game of Super Mario to get your thoughts together.
You will also be happy to know that Hardcode plays well with with others, written in Java and bundled with OpenGL, Hardcode will run on any system and will give you hardware level graphics support to take some of its awesome features into an experience that you commonly find in games. Yes, it does play nicely with conventional editors, and yes, it does feel awesome.
Finally, because we know how badly most editors are designed, we decided to take this project head on with the most incredible user interface system that can possibly ever exist. Every single pixel you see in hardcode, can be recolored in realtime, along with a transparency mask. Yes you heard correctly, you can redesign the entire user interface right down to its transparency settings.

Download: It is still a major WIP and we are hoping to release a version soon, please check the links above regularly to find out when we release it.
Please do note this is literally just the start of the project, this is the first actual images we have released of this. The reason it looks like it does is because that is what the team decided on for our base theme, you are more than welcome to customise it and place your own theme.
Development Update 1 (8 May 2012)
Here is some screenshots regarding the theme API
PS: Don't be hatin' on our design style. If you don't like it, you can make your own when we release an alpha.
Here is a video regarding our parameter highlighting + tabbing and code completion
Minor Update 1 (9 May 2012)
Youtube channel brought online, follow it as we will post videos of features in development, etc. It can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/DEVTEAMNINJA/
Development Update 2 (11 May 2012)
Our plugin system is working now, we are now continuing by adding webdev languages to it.
On top of this we are working on some videos to demonstrate some of the features which we will upload to our Youtube channel.
To add to this list, we are busy setting up a forum system in place of using an IRC channel. We shall post a link shortly.
