CodeLite is an open-source IDE application that offers support for C/C++, as well as other programming languages and helps users extend its functionality by installing plugins. Even though it comes packed with many dedicated parameters, this cross-platform application allows users to write source code in a clean and intuitive environment.
Streamlined and user-friendly code editor
You can undo or redo your actions, perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, delete, or duplicate), delete, move, or transpose lines, switch to a full screen mode, hide or reveal the whitespace, as well as search and replace words.
CodeLite gives users the possibility to create bookmarks, perform quick debugging operations, as well as configure the source code editor settings by making the tool display line numbers, and by taking advantage of its built-in autocomplete function.
What’s more, the program is able to trim the empty lines when saving the files, and you can customize the bookmarks and breakpoints, apply syntax highlighting options and choose the background colour and font style, assign hotkeys, as well as define a set of environment variables.
Last but not least, CodeLite offers support for GDB and allows users to add watches, expand variables, automatically display the current variables, view a list with the running threads, modify tooltips, and apply text folding operations.
Develop and debug Node.js projects with the help of this powerful IDE
During our testing we have noticed that the tool carries out a task quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so it doesn’t hamper system performance.
All things considered, CodeLite offers a complete set of tools for helping users create and build complex projects.
