What IDEs are you using to develop git?

Frank Münnich
Hi there,

I am interested in helping out and improving git, though I haven't
programmed in C for quite a while now and thus have to relearn quite some
things.
I understand the different branches (master, next, pu) and so on, and were
successful in compiling git with my Ubuntu 9.04. [yeea] ;)

One thing I would like to ask you: what, if any, IDEs are you working with?
I tried Anjuta but were unsuccessful in importing the git folder from any
branch into Anjuta. Eclipse worked a bit better, though I am still batteling
with the debugger a bit.

Any recommendations, manuals or how-to tips are greatly welcome.
And one thing: thank you for your effort! Git really caught my attention and
I was so much amused by the Google-Techtalk that Linus gave about Git, that
it sparked my interest in relearning how to program again ;)

Best regards from lovely Dresden in Germany
Frank Münnich

I think everyone just uses vim/emacs :-)

No IDE. Just jed (a lightweight emacs-ish editor).

I've tried to learn Geany, but my fingers are too trained to the emacs
shortcuts and I'm far too used to the behaviour of my current editor to
be able to switch without a month or so of idling, and that's not really
an option at $dayjob.

kdevelop rocks. Debugging perfect. Just configure a C external-make project
and off you go.

I'm using Eclipse CDT on Ubuntu.  The only thing that has been a pain is
the debugging application output console is not a true xterm or console
and doesn't show diff output (which is what I've been focused on)
properly, so for that Data Display Debugger has been useful.

I personally use GNU Emacs when working with git-controlled projects.

See also question 20. What editor, IDE or RAD you use working with Git?
in Git User's Survey 2009 (http://git.or.cz/gitwiki/GitSurvey2008)

   Among text editors (although with plugins, addons, modes one can
   make those into something resembling IDE) Vim with 51% wins over
   TextMate with 33%, which in turn wins over Emacs with 21%. Next in
   turn is Eclipse with 13% (assuming that editors in 'other' won't
   change it; this would a bit unlikely, though); it is most popular
   among Java IDE listed (from those NetBeans is more popular than
   IntelliJ IDEA). XCode, MS Visual Studio and KDevelop IDE have
   similar popularity, surpassing Anjuta.

Vim (or gvim if I want better colors), and cscope. Cscope + vim is a  
killer combination that enables you to fly around projects of any size  
very efficiently. I swear by it. I use it at my job to navigate a  
project consisting of over 14000 lines of code. It makes tracing  
execution and navigating a project child's play.

Hope that helps,
Jeremy

I can't get how would one take vim or emacs instead of an IDE like
Eclipse.
That's probably because I'm mainingly a Java developer and i don't know
vim/emacs very much.

What are the advantages of developing git with vim/emacs over an IDE?

Cheers,
Daniele

I've spent all my career as a professional programmer using vim as my
sole source code editor for the last 15 years.

I can only reply very generally (I don't develop git - I develop php
and use git). However, I have tried to use Eclipse on a number of
occasions and have always drifted back to Vim. With a bit of learning
can can do most of the stuff that an IDE does, usually faster and with
less fuss. However, the killer for me is that you can access your
development box in an emergency over a slow dialup line and vim will
get you out of trouble - your fancy, resource-hogging IDE will not.

Vim and Emacs has, and have had tools suitable for C and other languages
for ages. If you have learned to master them it's hard to find anything as
good. If you do java the tools in vim and emacs are not as developed as
those for older languages, which Eclipse is originally developed as a tool
for Java development and it shines at it. For non-java things vary. The C/C++
support in Eclipse is getting better, but it' nowhere near what exists
for Java. Learning and avoiding its's  bugs and quirks is probably not
worth it if you already have other good or better tools.

VIM and Emacs are really IDE's. In particular you can login to emacs directly
and never leave it until you log out. Besdides all you pogramming tools you
have your email and (yes) your mp3 player there. That's pretty integrated to me.

Pre-trained fingers in my case. I quite like simple IDE's such as Geany,
but I get so annoyed when emacs keybindings don't work, or when the auto-
indentation doesn't do what I want it to do that I just revert back to
my simple editor instead.

One could argue that some of these features makes them Integrated
Dicking-around Environments instead of Integrated Development
Environments ;)

Ditto. And with a very modest screen size. Modern IDEs need a huge
monitor, and then more, just to show what they want to show you.

Not what you need.

So when working on webapps, I normally keep my editor (usually an
emacs variant) window small, and have lots of terminal windows tracing
relevant logs (webserver, db server) and 3~4 webbrowsers logged in as
different users.

When working on git itself, it's much easier -- as all you need is
your editor and your terminal to compile & debug so for a simple task
like git itself, an IDE might even work ;-)

cheers,

How much mouse do you use and how much keyboard?
And now read http://steve.yegge.googlepages.com/effective-emacs.
Note: vi is ergonomically superior to emacs (shortest keystrokes, no
mouse at all)  but emacs can do more than vi
