It is possible, but not convenient. In theory you can write the program
with Vim, then compile it with:

gbc3 -a /path/to/sourcedir

Then pack and create the executable with:

gba3 -o /path/to/sourcedir/progname.gambas /path/to/sourcedir

Then install it as root:

cp /path/to/sourcedir/progname.gambas /usr/bin/progname.gambas

I would try to use the IDE to create the project itself and its files
and directory structure as a command line project on a X86 computer.

You can also compile it on the X86 computer and the copy to and run the
Gambas executable on the ARM computer. This is what I do with some
programs that run on a Raspberry Pi.

As long as you only use Gambas methods and components inside your
program it should run the in the same way on X86 and ARM.

Alles Gute
