IDE for Mac OS

Posted 30 October 2011 - 09:22 AM

Ok, o I may have committed the ultimate computing sin and switched to a Mac. :whistling:


Anyway, I *WAS* going to use xcode until I realized they wanted a $100 bucks for a developers license to get it :censored:


Anyway, so what is a decent IDE to use on Mac OS. Anyone got any suggestions?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Java (I have a compiler already but it would be nice to have an environment), Perl, PHP mainly.

If you want to use Java, then install eclipse or netbeans. They are both petty good for Java from what I have seen. I don't really do any PHP/ Perl outside of a text editor and web-browser, so I can't say any IDEs for them (though I believe that eclipse has a plugin to handle PHP).

In reality you don't need an IDE for any of them, you can use the terminal (emacs can run in a terminal) and get everything you need in one place... granted they are separate at that point (the compiler and the file handler/ editor).

Ok, well actually just registering with apple as a developer doesnt cost you anything and I have gotten access to xcode. but I have to wait until my copy of snow leopard arrives to use it. :/


I cna use a text editor, but IDEs are just nice for some basic syntactical things.

Yeah, they're awesome! I use NetBeans for Java on mine, although I'm relatively new to the language, so far it runs wonderfully! You do have to re-assign some of the hotkeys I've found, such as Run file and Format.
