hey there,

I just wanted to do an informal survey for my blog on what some of the popular IDE's you guys use. If you have any info, it would be great if you said why you chose it above others (say, why Eclipse is better than visual studio or vice versa) also mention what language you use in that IDE.

I have used several IDE's but I haven't fully used their resources. I have used DevC++, Eclipse for C++ and for Java, and of course Visual Studio. I like Eclipse and VS the best, but I can't really say which is better because I haven't thought to compare them. It is annoying that VS doesn't make your brackets for you tho...

Windows: Zend for PHP, Notepad2 and Visual Studio
Linux: vim, Zend for PHP and Monodevelop
Mac: Nothing because I can't afford their hardware

Of those IDEs I use the text editors most (Notepad2 and vim) and not sure they would be considered an "IDE" per-say, but I do a lot of CLI programming in them. I've used them for multiple languages from C++ to Python. Next up is Zend because it is based on Eclipse and cross-platform. I can use it on Windows or Linux and enjoy the exact same features. I used Visual Studio on Windows for .NET development and Monodevelop on Linux for .NET development.

For EDI I use a propritary IDE based on Eclipse as well.

I've fooled around with vim, but the learning curve was high, and there are so many text editors that have controls I am used to. I like Context

vim learning curve is high but you become use to it and can actually edit faster using vim once learned. My old boss use to say "With vi you can fly!". Some people say "With vi I die".

I use jEdit for most of my code (HTML, ColdFusion, ASP, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Delphi, C++, C). For Delphi code I also use the Delphi IDE (Mainly to compile and do form design). You can substitute Lazarus for Delphi in any of the above.

I agree with Jordan, vim is worth the learning curve. Unfortunately, I let my vi skills atrophy. For massive files (such as error logs where my conversion failed miserably) vim or emacs are sometimes the only editors that will open it.

@Jordan: I can't see Notepad2 being classified as an IDE. It surely isn't an Environment that Integrates Development - just a tabbed version of notepad.

Why not give Notepad++ a try? It's far better than Notepad2.

Yeah Notepad++ is great.

I use Dev-C++ to write my C++ code. I like it very much.

You should read my full post:

They may not be "integrated" but they certainly constitute a "Development Environment". I tried Notepad++, I didn't like it as much.
