Divan Abzar: Your Persian Workshop for Mastering Software Craftsmanship

This white paper proposes "Divan Abzar," a new feature inspired by Microsoft's Dev Nest. But instead of a nest, imagine a bustling workshop, a vibrant Persian "Khana Kod" (House of Code) where software artisans gather to create and collaborate. Like its cultural namesake, Divan Abzar will be a centralized place within ParchLinux, specifically designed to streamline your development workflow and elevate your coding experience.

Why Do We Need This Workshop?

Currently, navigating ParchLinux for development can feel like searching for tools in a disorganized bazaar. Scattered scripts and disparate sources make project management and environment setup cumbersome. With Divan Abzar, these scattered tools will find their rightful place, organized and readily accessible within a user-friendly interface.

Building Your Projects Seamlessly

Divan Abzar will be your go-to place for everything you need to build your projects. Imagine:

  • Centralized Hub: Manage projects, tools, and extensions – no more hunting through hidden corners.
  • Modular Design: Bring your favorite tools and integrate custom scripts – personalize your workspace.
  • Tool Discovery: Browse and install relevant tools from a curated list or community submissions – find the perfect fit for your project.
  • Pre-configured Environments: Jumpstart your projects with environments tailored to specific languages or needs – save time and focus on creation.
  • Seamless Task Management: Integrate with existing ParchLinux task management tools – maintain control and stay organized.
  • Community Spirit: Share tools, extensions, and pre-configured environments – grow together as a vibrant developer community.

Embracing the ParchLinux Philosophy
