Great refactor tools, GIT integration, GDB debug and all that other things jetbrains rules!

User in Semiconductors

It's available on multiple platforms- windows, unix, linux etc. It works for multiple compilers and languages but my favorite is C++. I love that it is open-source and we can add other plugins.

I like that Qt Creator is a modern IDE with all the modern features that a developer in 2016 should have. Simple interface, great functionalities, awesome debugger, god-like auto-completion, and a lot more features.

It’s pretty good, I would like the bottom panel to be better at switching between terminal and debug

A lot of issues with compiler, and the layout is very very old fashioned. Not visually appealing like Eclipse or other IDEs. Not good for big python projects or projects in other languages either.
