Favourite Linux IDE?

Vim for anything bash/c++/python
QtCreator for larger C++ code

I've been using Eclipse what seems like forever for every type of project I work on, mostly because I use it at work. But I recently tested IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition and I really love it. Now I own the Complete Pack Subscription from Jetbrains and use IntelliJ IDEA, CLion (cmake based C++ IDE), WebStorm (best JavaScript I ever used) and PHPStorm. The integration of all related toolchains and other external tools is just amazing. I am now trying their issue tracking system Youtrack, cause integrated issue tracking right in the IDE is also very cool.
Given, I have to pay 25 bucks a month, but these tools are totally worth it.

QtCreator for C++, VIM for everything else.

I use Geany and it is really good.

One question. Is there a way to highlight the code for python3 syntax instead of python2?

Atom for anything

Had to switch from Atom, messed up my files with old versions in some cache too many times. Too annoying, switched to Kate.

Geany is my pick if I had to pick just one IDE for everything. However, if I am forced to use Java I will pick Eclipse.

I'm using Visual Studio Code both at home and at work. *ducks*.
But seriously, it's MIT licensed and actually pretty good.

I’m considering trying it after seeing it in use in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYkxFbd6luY
I want to run it under firejail though to make sure it can’t phone home… (which it does by default)

Visual Studio Code here too, in my case for web development, MS is doing actually pretty good things lately!
JetBrains Rider is my choice for C#.
