Xcode "like" editor on windows?

10 posts in this topic

I'm looking for an editor that will feel like the xcode one. I don't need it to compile anything but I want it to auto complete functions, suggest, maybe link to the API ?, warnings etc'.

is there anything like that? Tried searching for an notepad++ plugin with no success.

(I'm on Windows and not looking for a Virtual Machine solution)

For what language(s)? There are hundreds of IDEs like (better than) Xcode on Windows, the one you pick depends on which language you're going to use though.

Visual Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Qt Creator, and there's bound to be something for Eclipse.

Why would you want an IDE as terrible as Xcode? I'm serious. Xcode is far from ideal. Especially since Apple wants developers to use Objectionable-C ;)

If it supports the language you're looking to use, you can't go wrong with Visual Studio. It's excellent.

Sublime Text 2

Way better than Notepad++

The only language I'll be developing in is objective-C. Don't know how I didn't mentioned it.

Visual studio handles Objective-C well?

The main reason I want something close to Xcode in Windows is because I'm developing for the iphone at home (where I have Lion installed) But I have other Windows environments where i want to retouch the code and sometimes add a few pieces to it. I want, at least try, to keep those coding environments as close to each other as possible in terms of auto complete, shortcuts etc'.

To be honest, I don't think you're going to find a IDE comparable to Xcode for Objective-C on Windows since there's very little interest in Objective-C for anything other than iOS development. There's a plugin for Sublime Text 2 to allow primitive Objective-C auto-completion / code navigation https://github.com/quarnster/SublimeClang but I don't know of anything better.

Looks that way.. I hoped it was just my poor searching skills on google

Thanks for the plugin but it's very basic and not really what I was looking for.

Bumping this. Maybe there is something I'm missing?

Doubt, you'll find anything interesting that has to do with Objective-C outside of the Apple ecosystem as nobody but them uses that language...
