Favorite IDE + tools to work with

Posted 19 September 2009 - 05:11 PM

My favorite development tool has to be Visual Studios. I can write libraries to share in other projects as I work in various types of applications from WPF, WCF, XNA, ASP.Net and not have multiple IDE's or other applications along the side.

I also like the Visual Assist X by Tomato Software. I especially like there advance intellisense where I can either use acronyms to quickly reference a class, or structure I'm trying to use, or the if(){}else{} or try{}catch{} it auto generates for me with one type of a letter. It really makes coding much faster.

What are some of your favorite development tools?

Well for me it also will be Visual Studio with Visual Assists for C/C++ and Resharper for C#.

Eclipse for Java and all Java related stuff like J2ME (I also used it for PHP once, but I haven't coded in php for long time).

But I tend to program also on Linux so here I use make as the make system, and gcc, nasm, ld as compilers and linker. As for IDE I use Geany (used vim, but its pretty annoying), mc for file browser and urxvt for terminal :)

Emacs is the best thing to happen to me since I discovered masturbation. I use Emacs for virtually all my development over IDEs.

I use it for Ruby, Clojure, and Haskell. Other languages will be added to this list in the future.

Emacs is the most important tool I use. Vim can go fuck itself.

I like VIM. No animosity towards Emacs for it, really, it's just the one I prefer. On Windows, I use Scite for lightweight stuff, Codeblocks for C/C++, and Eclipse for Java projects.

Emacs w/ Make or Ant (depending on what I'm programming).

Not a big fan of IDEs but Eclipse is nice.

You're kidding, right?

Open Studio is just a piece of shit in the stage it is right now, and I don't expect it to be much better in months/years to come.

I like Eclipse and Visual Studio.

I agree with Raynes. Emacs is the best :D VIM is a piece of shit. It doesn't even know what C-x C-c does!

I'm a fan of NetBeans, when using Java, because of it's extensibility and general ease of use (even if it does screw me over every once in a while).

When I'm using C(++) though, I find Eclipse/Code::Blocks better suited.

I use Eclipse for Java development, and VisualStudio for ASP.NET/C#. I'm still looking for a good (also free, and I'm aware that the two may be mutually exclusive) IDE for PHP, and actually I've been thinking about just using Notepad++. All the Python I've done so far (not much) has been in Notepad++, but I want to check out a Python extension for Eclipse.

I'd like to get my VIM skillz up. Mostly because of the influence of a professor who used VIM for all his in class demonstrations. He is a true VIM ninja, a vimja, a master of the program. I have never before seen a text editor move like that, and I doubt I ever will...

Haven't we done this thread before?

bash/ksh/vi/vim and sometimes XCode.
