Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
« on: December 17, 2013, 12:50:30 PM »
A question to the developers: Which tool do you use to edit the source code of ML? Is it a simple text editor / Emacs / vi (with or without syntax highlighting)? Together with find and find in files? Or do you use an IDE?

An IDE normally has several advantages: autocomplete, code navigation, calltips, code analysis, code folding, ...
Netbeans and Eclipse also have support für Mercurial (integrated/plugin).

Who has experience with an IDE? Is it worth a try?

Since I'm on a Mac, I use xcode, it works great, it's free, and it's native (Eclipse and the like tend to annoy me being so slow since they are not native code). Autocomplete, jump to definition, stuff like that all works really well. It used to automatically goto and highlight build errors, but this hasn't worked since the latest version, I haven't had time to figure out what's going on.

I've been using vi and grep to poke my way around the code.  It works pretty well, but I haven't had to do any big copy/pasting or formatting.
