    KDevelop vs Anjuta vs CodeBlocks

    Hi,

    which IDE offers most features for C/C++ development, Eyecandy doesn't matter for me, I have been a Windows user for a long time and don't really know much about IDEs on Linux, so It would be very helpful if you people could guide me to something here.

    I have downloaded and installed all of them today (KDevelop and Anjuta through Ubuntu's Add/Remove option). till now I like CodeBlocks and KDevelop, (infact I am more in a favour of KDevelop, but it is giving me a hard time building my projects as I have mentioned in another thread).

    And also, I have been using Eclipse for Java development, I hear there are C/C++ plugins available, should I try them?

    Regards,

    You should definitely try the C++ plugin for Eclipse. Then choose yourself.

    if you're comfortable with Eclipse, then I would definitely suggest you use the C/C++ plugin. This way, you don't have to go through the hassles of learning another IDE. This will save you time you'd rather use on developing apps.
    Goodluck!

    Okay, I have installed CDT, will be playing around with it tonight. I am also looking for some good plugins that could help me out in C/C++, will post a list here if I found some. Also, if you know some, do suggest.

    You can try to download Sun Studio 12 (just release), a complete C/C++/Fortran development tools , support linux and sun Solaris.
    Netbeans C/C++ Pack is the open source version of Sun Studio and the Sun compiler is not included. Eclipse CDT
    lack some feature in Netbeans C/C++ Pack.

    Can you elaborate what features are provided by Sun Studio. It would be helpful for me in deciding whether those features are worth an IDE shift, since I am quiet comfortable with CDT in eclipse (it looks just like the JAVA environment), then I have SVN plugins installed for eclipse...

    I had used NetBeans about 6 months ago, it's a very nice IDE, but then due to company standards, I had to keep my self to Eclipse so couldn't really explore all of it's features. One thing that I believe (but I could be wrong) that nothing beats eclipse in number of plugins available and the amount of ease provided to the developer.

    Waiting for your response...

    Re: KDevelop vs Anjuta vs CodeBlocks

    I have been IDE hoppin for a week now..... I looked around and the three best ones I found was Netbeans 6.5 eclipse 3.4 and code::blocks

    Netbeans 6.5 --- The best looking ofcourse but that's not as important as features... Eclipse with its wide varitey of plugins was unbeatable until the 6.5.... If you haven't tried this out yet I suggest you do. I can't find one feature in C++ that eclipse or code::blocks has that Netbeans 6.5 doesn't plus you get the good looking IDE... isn't that part of the idea of an IDE...

    Eclipse -- impressive but after netbeans 6.5 its got tough competition

    Code::blocks -- havent tried this out yet but its downloading right now...

    on addition I have VS studio 2008 but i like the netbeans espcially its syntax checking and auto complete that vs studio isn't a choice anymore... i can't tell you how many syntax errors it saves you from as you type instead of finding them each time you compile.. correct one and then compile again.... i say that feature is a must...

    It is basically just a matter of taste.
    When working on something small, I usually use gedit (with autocomplete plugins, and C/C++ highlighting), and I have a terminal embedded into it.

    I use Code::Blocks for bigger projects, but generally I like to stay free of IDEs that force you to create project files, or enforce their own dir structure for your projects (as Code::Blocks does, which is the reason I don't use it for smaller ones).

    I have tried Eclipse, but couldn't get my head around it (as confusing as Stargate Atlantis, at least to me)

    So far, I'm good with Code::Blocks, but I'm going to try out Netbeans...
