As a programmer, I am aware that there are hundreds of choices for a development environment for any language that I wish to program in. For example there is spim and mars which both assemble mips assembly code, and there is eclipse cdt, gedit, etc for c++.

What is your favorite development environment and why? It need not be language specific.

I will start:
I like to use eclipse because it supports Java, C++, C, and PHP, which are the main 3 languages that I use. I'm sure there are plugins for other languages as well that it supports.

Netbeans because it supports almost all languages, and organizes projects really well. Plugins for other languages, and works with a lot of different compilers.

Also a visual form for creating GUI with Java. :D

I've never heard of ViM, do you have a website that I can look at?

I'm sort of curious to what else is out there since I'm so eclipse oriented.

Microsoft Visual Studio; despite the fact that it is slow but I like it, because I did not try any other environment

@speedular - Try eclipse or netbeans :) Visual Studio is only good with the .NET languages, and there are a lot better languages. :)

ViM.

No bullshit.


Ditto. I use vi for a lot of coding: PHP, C++, bash scripting, perl, and even ruby once. vi works extremely well through SSH which I spend a lot of time in (on mulutple systems). I prefer to call it vi because ViM replaces vi on most modern Linux distributions but it is, as the name states, simply vi improved. I learned vi first on HP-UX which had no ViM plus it is more difficult to say "ViM" in conversation than "vi". Also, "ViM" does not rhym with "... you can fly" - a statement another HP-UX administrator (and my boss) often makes.

I also use Zend Studio for PHP now which is just Eclipse. For Java development I actually prefer Netbeans though. The Visual Studio suite isn't a bad IDE, IMO. If offers more features than any other IDE but you are limited in development choice (MFC (which was removed after version 6 until 2008) or .NET).

I've also used Notepad2 a lot. It loads extremely quick in Windows and support syntax highlighting for most languages.

In Mac my favorite IDE was TextMate which allowed you to group project files and support syntax highlighting for most languages. It was very similar to Notepad2.
