View Full Version : IDE like Visual Studio?

March 8th, 2012, 05:17 PM
Are there any ide's for ubuntu that are like visual studio for microsoft. I don't really mind what language as I haven't really decided on which one I want focus on. I just like the ability to quickly make a decent program user interface like Visual Studio allows you to?

I don't really want to use wine or virtual machine as I'm a bit of a linux noob and can never get either of those running properly.

For C++, which is the programming language that I use most, there is Code::Blocks, QtCreator, KDevelop etc. I personally use and like Code::Blocks a lot, however, if you want to design GUIs fast by just dragging and dropping boxes, QtCreator might be better for you.
I'll leave IDEs for other programming languages to others, because I think I might not be able to advise you best(I'm guessing you could try NetBeans/Eclipse/Geany/Emacs/Vim/...).

Check Gambas (http://gambas.sourceforge.net/).

Also, check Quickly; for more info, visit the ubuntu developer site (http://developer.ubuntu.com/).

Try QtCreator, you won't regret it.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I'll have a look at the programs you have suggested and see which one works best for me.
