There are many available choices for code editors and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs).

Some popular choices are (in no particular order):

  • Kate - KDE's advanced text editor
  • KDevelop - KDE's own IDE
  • Qt Creator - By the Qt Project, strong integration with UI design and creation
  • Visual Studio Code - Popular, customizable, support for many programming languages

The choice is often a personal preference, here we list some instructions and tips on getting editors and IDEs working well with KDE projects.
