Eclipse is an extensible development platform with runtimes and application frameworks for building, deploying and managing software across the entire software lifecycle. Many people know Eclipse as a Java IDE, but it is much more than that- Eclipse actually consists of over 60...
Eclipse vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
hard to use and poorly designed
One is for Java and the other is for C#
Eclipse supports multiple languages, looks good too
MonoDevelop enables developers to write desktop and web applications on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It also makes it easy to port .NET applications created with Visual Studio to Linux and Mac OS X maintaining a single code base for all platforms.Discontinued
As of October 2021, the GitHub repository README has been updated to say "This project has not been built nor maintained since January 2020 and has been archived".
MonoDevelop vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
I've used MonoDevelop extensively for C# work in Linux. It can work with Visual Studio projects, and much of the shortcut key mappings match Visual Studio. Support for WinForms is available, but there is no viable GUI layout tool/functionality available. A pity that there's no XAML/WPF support under Linux....
It is specifically for C# like Visual Studio is mostly used for
Has to be built from source before it'll run on Windows.
MonoDevelop's GUI designer is admirable, I've tried it and impressed immediately with how easy and straightforward it to design a window by drag and drop. Try to compare it with Netbeans', Eclipse's or CodeBlocks' GUI designer you will know what I mean.
It provides not only the most similar interface but also the most similar tools
Monodevelop, even though only for .NET languages (as far as i know) is probably the closest to Visual studio I have tried. Also, GTK# is awesome!
.NET functionality, good code recommendations
This repository contains a build file to generate FLOSS release binaries of Microsoft's Visual Studio Code - Open Source ("Code - OSS") project, the open source core of the proprietary Visual Studio Code.
VSCodium vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
its the same but without the useless features that cause more harm than good
Apache NetBeans vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
Netbeans includes built-in GUI designer with drag and drop ability to create desktop applications and they can run on Windows as well as GNU/Linux and macOS.
Free and Open Source Software. Changing leadership from Oracle to Apache Foundation.
It's for MS-Windows, MacOSX and Linux too! You can make projects independent of the OS.
NetBeans is an IDE, but it doesn't work for .NET languages so it's hard to call it a viable alternative.
Code::Blocks is a free C++ IDE built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable.
Code::Blocks vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
windows forms are missing and it's poorly designed
Faster, smaller, and able to make graphical desktop applications by adding GUI designer plugin wxSmith for C++ language and wxWidgets framework. Also, CodeBlocks is cross platform.
It is faster than VS and the plugins make it a little better, but it doesn't look as good visually.
Code::Blocks has 0.1% of the functionality of VS. It looks ugly as well.
Qt Creator vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
Found everything in Qt Creator for Linux that is in VS for Windows.
At first, intelligent search ib QtCreator is much better than the Microsoft's IntelliSens. Hot keys combinations are more simple and more intuitive. It looks for me more simple and intuitively clear at all.
It has A lot of really use full tools and you can install many extensions and even support for other programming languages then python,c++ etc
Does not support C# as they believe "it is not widely used enough" pfft
For C++ development, QT Creator is a lot less bloated. It is fast and has all the necessary features. There is just too much unnecessary crap in VisualStudio making it slow as hell when running on a slightly older machine and also takes up gigs of disk space.
IntelliJ IDEA is an integrated development environment (IDE) written in Java for developing computer software. It is developed by JetBrains, and is available as an Apache 2 Licensed community edition, and in a proprietary commercial edition.
IntelliJ IDEA vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
This is only designed for Java not .net.
Python and Django IDE with refactorings, code completion, on-the-fly code analysis and other features, including version control integration, deployment, integration with issue trackers, and remote debugging.
PyCharm vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
It supports proper Python.
Lazarus is a cross-platform IDE for the Free Pascal compiler. It tries to offer a Delphi-like programming experience through its own 'Lazarus Component Library' and supporting many platforms like Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD, Android, iOS and more.
Lazarus vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
Lazarus GUI designer is nice and easy to use. Drag and drop works without much hassles about layouting.
Open Source done entirely in an independent language very like TurboPascal (Delphi).
Because of license agreement, you can create unlimited codes by using Lazarus but VS has limits in license agreement
I like Lazarus and Free Pascal
The intelligent cross-platform C/C++ IDE. CLion is a new IDE that helps you be more productive while developing apps with C and C++ for Windows, Linux and OS X. Take advantage of proven JetBrains expertise in code quality, efficient code navigation, smart code completion...
CLion vs Microsoft Visual Studio opinions
For its young age it is well matured and a very powerful IDE with great CMake Support and other goodies like great refactoring tools and a sophisticated code-completion system.
Its cross platform and bring the benefits of the JetBrains IDE platform which is well polished and powerful.
Is actually designed for the same use cases as Visual Studio, while improving on VS's code completion, plugin support, and build and deployment features.
