Favourite Linux IDE?
uriil commented on 21 February 2017 at 10:49 pm UTC

I use Visual Studio Code

I use code::blocks, QtCreator and eclipse (but always an older version as they are more stable). Code::blocks is not really suitable for really large projects as the indexing grinds to a halt.

NetBeans for me, my favourite by the code I use to write (PHP and Java), but when using C I loved QT creator.

IntelliJ IDEA. There has never been better IDE for Java and I doubt there will be soon.

I love QtCreator for C++

mainly working with emacs (plus some extension scripts)... it's still the fastest and most versatile way to write and edit code for me; especially if you also work on the documentation, configuration, scripts, ... other IDEs are too focused on a single language and totally ignore that there's a lot more than some source-code files to create and maintain a program..

sometimes using Qt-creator (mainly when doing stuff for android)....

for simple single file "projects" vim or mousepad.

Eclipse all the way

IntelliJ Idea and Pycharm – at work and at home for Java, Kotlin, Rust and Python. Haven’t ever used a better IDE (though, it has limited features outside of JVM world, eg. no debugging for Rust).

Beside it I normally use two editors:

vim – for simple text editing, mostly changing some config files.

Kate – if I’m forced to do some changes to some bigger shell or js codebase.

And I used to use Code::Blocks back at the university for C and C++ projects – but never really did anything big in them, requiring more complex refactoring, so not sure if I’d recommend it now as a full-blown IDE. It’s simple, and works well for smaller things.

Never felt the need for a full blown IDE, but then I don't code GUI applications where perhaps an IDE is very well suited (at least that is what I've heard). So I'm only using Gedit and nano.
