Code::Blocks integrated development environment (IDE)
  20 reviews

Code::Blocks is a cross-platform Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It is based on a self-developed plugin framework allowing unlimited extensibility. Most of its functionality is already provided by plugins. Plugins included in the base package are: * Compiler frontend to many free compilers * Debugger frontend for GDB * Source formatter (based on AStyle) * Wizard to create new C++ classes * Code-completion / symbols-browser (work in progress) * Default MIME handler * Wizard to create new Code::Blocks plugins * To-do list * Extensible wizard based on scripts * Autosave (saves your work in the unfortunate case of a crash)

I am very pleased of Code::Blocks but the I have a version that is unreliable. I noticed a big bug in the package is 2022-12-27, 22:00:27 with gcc12.2.0 svn 13046: the editor is copy/pasting changes a little bit everywhere in the editor causing havoc in the code as it will not compile without errors.

It seems everything is OK.

It is sad to see Codeblocks, once a pinnacle of IDEs, turn into this, because of the developer teams arrogance and constant hatred for any feedback they don't like. And now the IDE is dramatically flawed, with tons of crashes, bugs and serious logical errors rendering it practically useless.

Wonderful if not for occasional crash.

Code::Block user for a long time. DON'T try install latest version (flatpack/flathub) before it is supported native. FP version screw up my code, also broken stable version. Wait till supported or unscrew system from great mess turn in a nightmare also for expert. Try fix before upgrade: CodeBlock is great also on older version. I use on many platform, native on raspberry, desktop Linux (winzz in the far past).

Good, light IDE for occasional programming. Unfortunately it seems to crash randomly with larger projects and depends on the contrib plugins to really shine.

Not the latest version. Crashes sometimes. A great IDE for C/C++!

What would i do without it? I love it. Though, i have some random crashes but luckily not very often. Saving often saves the work :)

It runs C programs. I was hoping it could run Python too, but unfortunatly it doesn't. Not a huge fan of it. If it did run Python I would be all over this IDE!
