View Full Version : Apps for good programming environment

August 20th, 2011, 09:41 PM
Hello guys,

I want to set up a programming environment and i was wondering what are the must haves for modern day programming ie not just jumping in and writing code ide but prototyping and brainstorming visually, actual programming, unit testing, subversion , automated builds etc. Are there any AIO Dev Program that does that like Visual Studio or do i have to break it up. If i need multiple applications please post next to the program name what it can do. The main programming languages i will be using are c/c++.

Thanks guys :)

Eclipse and its many many plugins ... http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/

Instead of vim or eclipse i'd go for geany and geany-plugins, but that's just personal taste.
You might want to install svn/bazaar/git revision control systems
Another great tool is meld, for visualizing the difference between two files.
ghex, a gnome hex-editor
Probably make and automake or cmake
If you dont have them already binutils, gcc, g++ and maybe mingw32 if you want to cross-compile for windows.

Yeah, i'll be using qt library so i'll get mingw for the cross compile. Any programs for rapid protyping and brainstorming? I know qt quick does that but any non programming/library specific protyping programs?

If you use Qt then Qt Creator is the natural choice. Eclipse is also very good. Btw here (http://blog.kermat.net/blog5.php/cross-compilation-with-qt) you can find a tutorial on cross compiling with Qt.
