what IDE is best for a multi-monitor/multi-window setup?
August 05
I'm trying to make this thing for Apknite and IDE is actually overkilling for me, all I need is:

A text editor

breakpoints - easy debugging

IntelliSense, or any good enough auto-completion

I've used MonoDevelop (the last version to work was 5.10, and it was way too buggy). I would still use it, but the old DEB I saved no longer installs on newer Ubuntu versions.

I've also used dlangide, it's good, works well, except, the newer versions don't compile, and even if you make the newer version compile by making changes suggested in its issue #308, the autocomplete is broken. And I don't think it supports multi-window setups.

And I'm on a ubuntu system, windows solutions aren't for me. As I've mentioned, any good text editor that has:

usable autocomplete (unlike geany)

GDB integration for debugging

what IDE or text editor would you suggest?

Visual Studio Code is what's usually recommended.

Seconded. I gave up Sublime Text for it a while back across Windows, OS X, and Linux. Not just for writing code, but also for all of the text I write in Markdown/Ddoc/LaTeX. code-d and dls are good extensions for D. I've never needed to resort to a debugger, but there's a gdb extension that should work for you.
