Good for multi platform projects

about NetBeans · ·

A bit heavy on some older, busy systems. The good part is on how easy is to create a seamless environment on different OSes, the nice editing and project environment.
I used it heavily for a commercial multi-targeted system (C/C++) on Linux / BSD / Windows / OS-X, and it was really helpful.
Give it a try, can be worth.

The best alternative to IDE PhpStorm free!

about NetBeans · · 1 Helpful

I have long developed under Eclipse for php, I love eclipse and Atpana studio (which is more than légé eclipse), but eclipse has become too heavy when working in a Symfony2 project or another therefore, Netbeans much more stable and much less greedy than Eclipse IDE.
I've tested PhpStorm also that I love very much, but it pays. Testing and working with many IDE / Editor different, I could well compare the advantages and pitfalls of each (that difficult to find a good compromise).
And I can say that if you are looking for a similar alternative to PhpStorm for all who touch the php development frameworks Symfony2 and then Netbeans IDE which is closest to it.
In terms of the Top Free.

The best C++ IDE

about NetBeans · · 1 Helpful

Been using it for about 4 years to code C++. This is the most feature packed and easy to use C++ IDE I've tried. The devs provided every little feature one can imagine to ease the development process. It's much faster than Eclipse even on large projects and has way cleaner interface. Its code navigation system is far ahead of any other IDEs and editors hands down.

NetBeans is not an alternative to Notepad++.

Notepad++ is designed to be lightweight.

Netbeans is the polar opposite of lightweight. It's bloated, massive, javastuff.

Netbeans is cross platform, so netbeans is an alternative to netbeans. Not to notepad++. Suggesting that it's an alternative shows a complete lack of understanding what notepad++ is.

I tried PHPEdit which was ok, then bought Komodo to do PHP editing which was pretty good, then moved on to Eclipse, which was a real pain to get working. Netbeans is my current editor of choice for PHP. Combines well with SVN compared to all the others. Excellent product.

I found then NetBeans is perfect for PHP development: function cross-reference, autocomplete feature (with parameters), the amazing PHP debugging feature (using Xdebug), and so on.

about NetBeans · Jun 2011 ·

If this project had more heart and mind share I would probably use it for all my software development needs. As it is I use it for anything JVM-related (although right now its support for application servers is a bit lacking -- Geronimo and JOnAS are not supported out of the box, for example). I find it a much cleaner environment to work in than Eclipse. Further, its support of Swing is unparallelled by any other IDE I've seen or tried. (Eclipse, for all practical purposes, doesn't support Swing, preferring its SWT library instead.)
