IDE vs IDE vs IDE

Hello all, the other day I was watching a few videos of Notch(<3) coding and it seemed that he was using Eclipse. I have no issue with Eclipse as it seems like a very good and popular IDE that is somewhat lightweight. I normally use Emacs for all my programming needs, though I'm starting to miss the usefulness of a good IDE.


TLDR; what is your current IDE for -insert language here-? Why do you use this over others? Would you recommend it for others?


@Mods: This should be in Off topic, or something, but the post count in General was 9,999. I had to do it. More like programming.. :shock:

Back to 9999 again.. But there's a significant amount of more posts for us mods.
Either way, I've used Eclipse before. It's nice. But IMO, it seems a little bloated, but with good reason. There's a shit ton you can do with it. I'm more of a lightweight kinda guy though. And I don't normally code in anything other than scripting languages. But when I do, I've used Codeblocks and a couple other that I don't remember. Codeblocks is alright. I don't know if I'd recommend it though.

Lighweight here also. On linux I just use the nano text editor because it's pretty easy to navigate and has syntax highlighting. If I have to develop something on windows I use notpad++ because it supports many different languages as far as syntax highlighting goes and you can also custom the themes to make it easier on the eyes to read.

I mostly code in C++ but use scripting languages also for windows.

When I'm on windows I definitely use Visual Studio. It's the best IDE for C++ or ASM programming I've ever used. I've used eclipse for other things and I didn't mind it but VS still feels better to me. I'm not even sure if eclipse lets you see registers, but I assume it does.

I was forced to use DevC++ for a class and coming back to VS was like breath of fresh air. DevC++ is a complete load of ass, I recommend staying as far away from it as possible.

I can't stand Visual Studio. Too much Microsoft. Besides that, they changed C++ . So it's no longer what C++ actually is, it's Visual C++. Disgusting. And as for ASM, a text editor is the best one I've ever used by far.

I've never actually used Nano, but if you want something similar to Notepad++ for Linux, look up Geany. Also, it's pretty lightweight too.

For c++ I use Code::Blocks since it uses mingw the inline ASM is limited to AT&T sintax. For java and haskell I use Eclipse. Plus this IDE are cross Platfrm not like Visual C++ or other .Net languages that are limited to one platform or requires a library like Mono to use them on other platforms.

Actually, you can force Intel syntax in Code::Blocks

I've been really taken with Sublime2 text editor lately for coding.

I'm surprised nobody uses Komodo Edit. I find it super fast, user friendly and the autocomplete is really accurate and comprehensive. I'm using it for Ruby atm. Great for professionals since it includes project management as well. I also love notepad++...I find Eclipse somewhat complicated. Visual studio is bullschlakha.
