IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year
What is your IDE of choice?

JMJ_coder 12-28-2011 06:02 PM

It'll be interesting to see these results. Besides some other downfalls I see, the single most drawback for any IDE I've seen is that they all lack a decent text editor. It would be nice if you could easily use any text editor you wanted (say, vim for example) in the IDE. I don't mean an emulator, which all fall short of the real deal, but the actual text editor. Is it really that difficult to all drop-in replacements for that?

Emacs works for me .... again.

Only started programming this year learning Python. My IDE of choice is eric (but version 4 for Python 2.6/2.7 and version 5 for Python 3.0). Eric3 isn't even available for download from their site. Maybe update/include eric4 or just leave it at eric?

Kind regards,

I use Arachnophilia for everything - css, html, java script, you name it. I use to use seamonkey composer, but this app takes care of everything without any problems. Not sure if open source though.

Eclipse!!! But then, this is my path:

notepad to jcreator to jbuilder and then (on Linux) Eclipse.

The webstuff, well, that's for Bluefish...

As always, GNU Emacs is the answer !

P.S: it is really *GNU* Emacs and not only Emacs.

I usually use vim combined with straight command-line gcc for building, but I use Geany on occasions when I'm running out of VTs or when my work is spread across too many files to make that feasible. Voted Geany

I use Vim with a few scripts... Then if I program on Windows I'll use GPS (for Ada programming) but it's really rare that I do... I might more in the year to come. I voted for Geany as I used it a few times to get an idea and "teach"/help someone (learning) programming basics and liked it, though it's not my first choice.

I use Geany for whatever little coding "work" I do (really just tinkering :p)…

Sometimes I'll use nano for really quick editing, but when I'm doing anything involving multiple source files, Geany fits the bill much better for me.

Vim. I've always done all my web development in Vim. Except for a few pages done in Windows Notepad many years ago. Vim. Just use Vim.

Telengard 01-04-2012 04:42 PM

Emacs here, too. :)

I couldn't choose between Geany and Bluefish and Vim and.... so....

Well, I chose Aptana Studio, just to make sure that it got at least one vote (I figure it will get more).

Aptana Studio is RadRails plus more, and until recently RadRails was available as a separate offering which I maintain as such when using it as an Eclipse plug-in, although it is also standalone.

So I guess you could say I have four versions, not counting the Wynd0z3 implementations which I have too ;)

I use Netbeans, but that doesn't need my vote, and I'm also fond of Geany and Bluefish too, and consider Kate for light stuff (even if it's in the editor section).

Well, that about covers it I suppose :)

Oh, wait.... There's also Vim :hattip:

I hope that helps!

Kindest regards,
