I'm definitely in the minority. My projects are in c++ and for that I use Kdevelop.

I - Integrated = init.vim: My Neovim config file that integrates everything I want into Neovim exactly the way I want
D - Development = Neovim: My primary development tool
E - Environment = Solus: My current favorite Linux distribution.

I use neovim for everything (Mainly Ruby, HTML, Javascript, C++).

vim + grep + ninja for C/C++ dev.

I tried different ide, but find myself more efficient with simple tools I control than with tools that tries to help me and take control.

I mostly use gnu emacs, although i don't do very much "coding" in it. Found it to be a good tool for taking notes. I eventually want to do more with it, but i'm a dummy so it takes a while to learn even the basic stuff.

Interesting to see so many replies here! :-D. I like "still-dreaming-1"'s post a lot though, that's one way to look at IDE's!

I can't possibly try every IDE mentioned here, but I'm glad to see that there are so many options. Personally I'm still using geany though.

Thanks for all the responses though! :-D. Nice to see I'm not the only Linux'er who uses it for development purposes.

Feel free to list any other IDE's you may use :-).

I am still a fan of Eclipse and IntelliJ at the same time.
If you put in some effort Eclipse is the real deal, especially when integrating things like XText code generation, Maven build lifecycles, JIRA integration for issues and projects, Application Server & Docker integration.
Yes these things work (mostly) out of the box in IntelliJ, but can also work in Eclipse if you take your time.

But ok, these features are mostly useful in an enterprise development environment, for home use I still prefer out of the box experience ;)

My only real requirement is split views, being able to see and edit the same or different files in several different places at the same time. Kate does that well and I like the rest of its features well enough so I'm happy with it.

I use QTCreator as well. SailfishOS uses a modified version that I also use with MER for app development.
