Hello!

 

I'm learning both Lua and Python so I can learn Cocos2D. I've done programming in several languages and have always used either VS, ConTEXT, or Programmer's Notepad 2. I'm looking for IDEs that are easy to use and allow auto-complete. What suggestions do you have? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I use Atom (developed by GitHub) for Lua development with Cocos2d-x. It's a great editor and comes with hundreds of packages. There're auto-completion, Lua highlighting and snippets, linter (syntax validation)... Here's a screenshot Lua code using the Monokai theme.

I like [url=https://babelua.codeplex.com/]BabeLua[/url] inside Visual Studio, and Sublime Text for quick edits.
