I voted for KDevelop but I really really wish I could have it emulate VI. Actually what I really really really wish, is that I wasn't so cheap and I'd break down and buy SlickEdit for linux because that's what I use at work on WinBlows and SlickEdit ROCKS. Oh well.

Why the hell doesn't VIM qualify as an IDE ?

I know it is pretty lightweight, but considering it has pretty good integration with many tools, and considering that it can be extended and that there are many [many] plugins to choose from ... why is VIM missing and Emacs is not ?

Personally I find VIM the best IDE available, with Emacs being a close second.
All the others are just toys.

I voted for Eclipse, it's a really complete IDE. Although it's built on Java, which consumes a lot of resources, I still use it for Java work.

Hi Bonifry

I don't know if this will be any help for you but........

If you used Qt and qmake for your program.
Add "CONFIG += opengl qt warn_on debug" to the ".pro" file and debug your program with "ddd", which uses "vim" as an editor. ("ddd" is a frontend to "gdb"). You are in VIM all the way. (I think).

I generally use Kdevelop as I prefer kwrite to vim, but they both do about the same thing.

Exclamation KDevelop + Doxygen

My favourite IDE is KDevelop used with Doxygen to navigate in the code.
I wish there could be an integration of these two programs, so that when using Doxygen I could edit/compile the code...

I find Eclipse far too heavy: it does not seem to be an IDE, it looks more like a resource eater! But maybe it is not its fault, the guilty one could be Java...

IIRC the reason is because the JVM grabs a boatload of memory for use in its internal memory management at startup. This can be affected (and reduced) by passing the right parameter to the JVM. (See the options that start with -X.)

Actually you cannot really blame Java when Eclipse loads tons of plugins on startup.

Considering that JEdit moves pretty well, Eclipse is to blame.

Just for your information.
An integrated development environment (IDE), also known as integrated design environment and integrated debugging environment, is a type of computer software that assists computer programmers in developing software.

IDEs normally consist of a source code editor, a compiler and/or interpreter, build-automation tools, and (usually) a debugger. Sometimes a version control system and various tools to simplify the construction of a GUI are integrated as well. Many modern IDEs also integrate a class browser, an object inspector and a class hierarchy diagram, for use with object oriented software development. Although some multiple-language IDEs are in use, such as the Eclipse IDE, NetBeans or Microsoft Visual Studio, typically an IDE is devoted to a specific programming language, as in the Visual Basic IDE.


as you can see, some of editors app that you vote for them are not IDE.
