"Good IDE, especially for Web Developer"

What do you like best?

I just trying using this software in Windows OS.

Easy to install, but I need to install a compiler to work with this and get better result in using this software.

By default it needs MinGW compiler.

CodeLite as a cross platform IDE, is specialized in C, C++, PHP and JavaScript.

This software also can be used in Linux/Ubuntu OS, Mac OS, and of course Windows OS.

For databases, this software supports SQLite, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.

I totally like the side pane, because it provides any aspect of development that I need.

Also there is SFTP pane, to make it easier to connect by terminal.

What I love is, in this IDE, there are already output pane and complete plugins available.

As example, there is Unit Test ++, and SFTP log, Git.

So can be said, basically all I need for my website development work is only this software.

CodeLite can cover a lot of task from several software that I usually used.

What do you dislike?

So far I have nothing to dislike.

Currently I'm still trying to adapt with this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For website developer, I think this software is great to help our work

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before, I need to use several software to help my website development work.

But now I can only use CodeLite to cover it all.

"Lightweight and Efficient IDE with Limited Programming Language Support"

What do you like best?

Drag and drop support, easy to use interface and plugin options are best about CodeLite. Git plug-in, diff plugin, SMTP support and unit testing plugings are key features of the IDE. Also cross-platform support is one of the most important features for an IDE and CodeLite is supporting almost every operating system.

What do you dislike?

CodeLite is only supporting PHP, C, C++ and NodeJS at the moment. Limited programming language support should be improved with popular programming languages like Python, Ruby and Go.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Developer teams using different operating systems might think about CodeLite since it's a cross-platform IDE. Since most of the developers prefer lightweight IDEs, CodeLite is quite "lite" and fast during development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integration with Git is trully a benefit since new programmers are not comfortable working with Git. Using Git with the command line is not easy and learning Git commands take lots of time for programmers. But with the help of CodeLite and its Git plugin programmers can only focus writing code other than spending time to learn Git.

"CodeLite! Awesome and I love it."

What do you like best?

I like that are versions for Linux and Windows. I also like that it is super light weight. I can do all my C++ development in it, and don't need a heavy duty IDE. It has all the tools I need.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike, the IDE is excellent. It is one of my favorites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a light weight but complete IDE to write C++ application, CodeLite is the answer. It has everything needed to write small applications to enterprise level. It is the best IDE in my opinion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started off using CodeLite as an IDE for a C++ college class. Then I ended up using for home projects. I haven't used it at my work because they only allow Visual Studio .NET framework, but I have told my management about it and it is another option than VS2013.
