I use CodeBlock for large projects and  FAR or Poseidon for small.

SciTE on windows and linux, sometimes Kate on linux
both with SEATD for D code navigation, of course ;)

Visual Studio 2005!
Nice editor and good debugging ;)

I was using vsplugind [1] for a while, but it seems that it is no longer maintained. It is not really needed, though.

May ask why you don't use poseidon on large projects ( and what is large :) ?

Oops; thought you meant "convert Eclipse JDT so it works with D", which is what Descent is. If you meant convert the application Eclipse to D, I think it wouldn't help very much. Eclipse is an application designed to run for long periods of time, which is where Java HotSpot compiler does its best, and the application model is VERY class-heavy, so converting it to anything that would actually instantiate the vast number of classes defined there literally (Java doesn't even need to instantiate classes w/o data members, such as anonymous Runnables, but D does) would probably just slow it down. Eclipse isn't slow because it's Java (Java performance is mostly a myth these days anyway), it's slow because it does so much stuff in the background.

That's probably answer to my post? Isn't it?

My post was of course joke. Frank Benoit is currently translating Java SWT library from Java to D, which is a huge work...

Eclipse seems to be a little slow in my experience. I use CodeBlocks for my regular development and it performs much better than Eclipse. But probably you  are right that Eclipse is just doing much more in the background.

But anyway I will switch to Descent for my regular work as soon as it will improve it's builder .IMHO good builder is very important for IDE; I usually click build/rebuild probably about hundred times a day).

I personally think that translation of SWT to D (native gui), and Descent IDE are most important projects for D being adopted by broader community of software developers.

Seconded.  Descent 0.51 is awesome!  The only thing that keeps me from switching full time is a missing build setup like CodeBlocks has. Descent's autocomplete and semantic analysis trounces all over code blocks though, so I can't wait to switch!

Agreed as well.  DWT is another great project.

Vim + :mak + dsss in Makefile + some custom error msg handler.

I use Descent + command line. I'm really happy with it. Never underestimate the present of a code assistant (0.5.1 rocks...).

Notepad++ and command-line for simple programs and tests, Descent and DSSS for larger projects.
