Why would you not use an IDE? Are you chuck norris?

Chuck Norris doesn't even need to code; he simply creates a binary beam from his forehead connecting with the computer and makes whatever program he wants instantly appear on the hard-drive ;)

My IDE is Notepad,
for my java programs I create a batch file that compiles, jars, and signs my applet

javac SprCre.java
IF NOT EXIST SprCre.jar (
jar cvf SprCre.jar SprCre.class Sprites
) ELSE (
jar uf SprCre.jar SprCre.class Sprites
)
< response.txt keytool -genkey -keyalg rsa -alias YourSign
echo NotAPass| keytool -certreq -alias YourSign
echo NotAPass| jarsigner SprCre.jar YourSign
IF EXIST index.html echo Y | DEL index.html
echo ^<applet width=755 height=508 code="SprCre.class" archive="SprCre.jar"^> ^</applet^> >> index.html


I find an IDE tedious to use, especially Java ones(I tried using a few) where there are certain options you just cannot turn off. Some were so annoying I just went back to using Notepad.exe. I did like the format feature in Eclipse though, but is not needed unless looking at code that is not my own.

I do like Dev Bloodshed for doing C/C++, but I am mainly doing Java atm.

It's 2011.

- Continuous integration toolkit
- Issue tracker
- Source repository
- staging/testing server/machine
- Release/deployment hosting
- An IDE
- Office/productivity suite

The bare minimums, all of which are available for free as well

Eeep just plain old notepad? Not even Notepad++ (free download). I couldn't imagine going back to not using an IDE, I use RAD 7.5.5 at work all day and I use Visual Studio 2010 for game development at home.

Any programmer worth a damn works with a hex editor directly with the .exe :P

For me it really depends on what i'm doing, the bigger the project the more useful the IDE becomes, for writing short scripts or modifying existing ones a good but lightweight text editor is a much better tool (i prefer vim for editing files)

I will use vi in unix machines when I need to do c or c++ or perl there. Otherwise I'll use visual studio or netbeans (for java).

While I occasionally don't heed my own advice; programmers should use any tool available to them to create better things faster.
