List of Integrated Development Environments
Below is a list of all IDEs that have been known to work with wxWidgets. Please keep discussion of the various IDEs listed here on the discussion page. See the Tools page for other RAD tools (XRC editors, dialog designers, etc) that don't have support for building/compiling.
|Chinook||Built with, and supports wxWidgets. Runs on BSD, Linux, Solaris, and Windows.|
|Code::Blocks|| An open-source cross-platform C/C++ IDE written in wxWidgets. Its pluggable architecture enables it to be extended easily by the use of external plugins (most of its functionality is provided by plugins). Supported compilers are GNU GCC, MS Visual C++ Free Toolkit 2003, Digital Mars, and Borland C++ Compiler 5.5.
|CodeLite|| Open-source, cross platform (Windows, Linux & Mac OS) C/C++ IDE written with wxWidgets and released under the GPL license. Features context sensitive help, auto-completion, refactoring, and a full debugging GUI. CodeLite is based on plugins so it can be extended very easily.
|DialogBlocks||Commercial dialog editor for wxWidgets from Anthemion Software Ltd. written by wxWidgets developer Julian Smart. Besides being a RAD tool with C++ and XRC support, it also supports most common compilers and can generate makefiles and MSVC project files.|
|Eclipse with its CDT||(C/C++ Development Tools) project (see the C/C++ development with the Eclipse Platform article at developerWorks).|
|NetBeans C/C++ Development Pack||Sun's answer to eclipse. Open-Source (CDDL). Supports at least GNU GCC and suncc (Sun Studio Compiler).|
