Best IDE for Linux – Emacs Code Browser

Posted by kasun04 on August 24, 2008

A C/C++ developer on Linux platform, is someone who always seeks for a IDE that suits his work, but ends up with using tedious ‘vim’ or unstable eclipse CDT or Netbeans C/C++.

But for me the most powerful IDE for C/C++ development in Linux platform is emacs. Using just only emacs would do a little but emacs gain enmourse power when it used with Emacs Code Browser (ECB).

This is almost an IDE that is enriched with all the possible features in the modern IDEs in Windows like VS or IntelliJ. Have a look :-).
