Quoting: ColomboCan you suggest me lightweight IDE that has that whispering and documentation? (and autocompletion)?
Atom ( is very clean and lightweight, and supports quite a lot of features through extensions.

Sublime Text 3 works great for me.

I use IntelliJ IDEA for all my Java work and I wouldn't change it for any other IDE.

I'm using (if I find time and motivation after programming on Windows at work) Eclipse CDT.

Netbeans is my favorite, definitely. I just have to add a GTK UI configuration to make it looks nice and it make it alot better

Wow.... surprised nobody has mentioned Codelite.

I've used just about every text editor & IDE out there, Codelite is what I've stuck with.

I use vim too on a daily basis. I'm surprised so few people here use it.

I used to work with Eclipse, but it felt heavy and getting slower with each update. At work we have a special version of micro emacs, which still is an IDE, as you can compile your C programs from it and jump into the code when having errors.
For minor changes on text files, I just use vim... but meanwhile my favorite editor is Sublime Text 3.
I've found a video tutorial online, called Perfect Workflow with Sublime Text, and that showed my how awesome Sublime Text is.
Meanwhile might be also quite similar, or even Microsoft's Visual Code... but I still stick with Sublime Text, as I payed the license fee (imho it's totally worth it) and got so used to it, that I don't want to have any other editor again.
It lacks some features big IDEs have, but I can get along with that.
