Description:

KDevelop is a plugin based IDE that currently supports C++ and PHP, different build tools, integrated documentation formats, integrated revision control systems and dozens of other neat tools. All these are plugins and there are plenty examples on how to add your own plugins.

It should also compile on Mac OSX (PowerPC), MS Windows and Solaris, but these platforms are sadly unmaintained. Help welcome!

Build tools: CMake, custom makefiles, generic scripts. (Experimental: QMake, Autotools, ...)

Integrated Documentation: QtHelp, CMake, PHP.net

Revision Control Systems: CVS, Git (KDev 4.1), SVN, (Experimental: Mercurial)

Development Support with code completion, as-you-type-reports, context browsing etc. pp:
- Anything in C++/C , e.g.: Qt, gtk, wxWindows, superwabba, GBA, ...
- Anything in PHP.

"Simple" language support for tons of other languages with the feature set found in Kate.

Other plugins: console, debugger (gdb), find-in-files, classviewer, snippets, external scripts, ...

Thank you for that, I will give it a try for some PHP :-)

BTW, after all this hard work, maybe you could take some time to update the screenshots in KDE-Apps.org... the new interface looks so much nicer !

you run qmake in a console and use the custom make manager to run make / make install afterwards.

If it's finally fairly stable, I'm sold. Been using various (beta) versions of 4.x for a while and it's great - except for the crashes.

It is. I have been using 4.0.0 for quite some hours now, and it never crashed. :)

I was looking for File Grouping mechanism. This one has it. Perfect. Makes development (I use PHP, JavaScript, MySQL) a breeze.

I love Kdevelop, I just started using it a few weeks..months ago, and I love every minut of it. I'm using 3.5.8, I used to use kate and kwrite, but I'm using this all the time now because its so cool. I'm a PHP, javascript, css, html, actionscript person.

One thing I would like to see though is image backgrounds for different file types. Might be a waste though.

Anyways, I'm tell you I'm going to be using this from now on for a loooong time if not forever. Once I get more into C++ it'll be handy. Looking forward to future releases. Best of luck. You guys ROCK!!!!

The biggest problem I have with KDevelop is using source control.I want to have a local SVN repository for my project but cannot for the life of me find out how to do it either by Googling or asking on the forums.Has this been improved in this version?

Hello, cool website. By the way, I had a question. I need to do three things on Linux:

1. Develop a GUI app
2. Create an API/library from c++ files
3. Compile the GUI app to use my own API/library.
4. Decide on either SUSE or Fedora?

I dont need any help on compiling c++ code into an API/library. My question lies in how to develop the GUI to use my library. Which GUI tool could do this? I am thinking about hooking a button up to a function that calls into my API. Thanks

What a great IDE! Have been using it for about a month now and am very pleased with the many nice features (have been looking for a long time for an editor that supports code folding) as well as the intuitive layout of the GUI. One enhancement I would like, though, is support for shortcuts templates. With that, one could for example choose a template that corresponds to the default Emacs key bindings, do some further customization, and then save the customized bindings as a new template. Probably this would also be easier to implement than embedding a ton of different editors (:only see two at the moment).

Hy there,

well i dont really know if some one will read it but as for me i feel i just got to, regularly i dont fill too much bug's reports, but i feel that this time its so important just because i think that kdevelop should try to eleminate all possible bugs cause all of us use this program to produce other bugs:), so here it is, guy's why is that when i folding my code kdevelop become so slow and seems like everything is mailfunction, i mean guy's u r carring this bug since i dont know when but at least 2 year WTF i'm so pissed of with it how can one work on big projects without the code folding func, guy's, again, if this func doesnt work well so dont include it in kdevelop, BTW this bug has been on my suse and gentoo and basicly every distro i have used.

guy's PLEASE repair it,

First of all, this is not the place to report bugs. KDevelop bugs should be reported to the bugzilla database.
http://www.kdevelop.org/index.html?filename=bugs.html

Second, code folding is done by the editor. KDevelop supports many editors: kate, qeditor, yzis and nedit.
You do not specify which editor you selected in KDevelop preferences, so I do not know which one you use.

Third, it works fine here with kate, KDevelop 3.3.1, KDE 3.5.0, SuSE 9.3

This is a great IDE. I've used several IDEs over the years and KDevelop has, by far, the best feature set and usability that I've encountered. There are a lot of features here and it will take time to learn to use the program to best effect. There is the occassional bug, but the KDevelop community is very good about fixing them or providing work-arounds where possible. Keep up the good work.
