What do you like best?

For C and C++ programming, I used blocks. Code-Blocks are open source, cross-platform and C /C++free of charge for Windows, Linux, and Mac-OS. The GNU GCC compiler is really fast and scalable. This debugger is a great tool for beginning with programming. It is also light and rather flexible, easy to travel with some excellent characteristics. I would say I'm generally pretty pleased with code blocks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I like most of the computer blocks things in theory. But, certain things always have to be changed, you suppose. I guess you need some ideas for code blocks when coding such as MSVC. Again, I think it is necessary to demonstrate accurate interfacing with other languages. It's primarily for C & C plus and Fortran coding, however we have a lot of new language as technology advances Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Let's start with code blocks, I might tell those who are beginning programming. It is free, open-source IDE and built for Windows, Linux and Mac-OS. You should start coding, and there are lots of resources to help you solve your problems if you have mistakes. It is lightweight and quite versatile, fast and simple applications, and it is not difficult either to install code blocks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In general, I like most code blocks stuff. Yet, you think, certain aspects must always be modified. I guess you need some computing block ideas like MSVC. Also, I assume the specific communication with other languages must be shown. Especially for C&C++ and Fortran coding, but as technology progresses, we have a lot of new language Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Code::Blocks is able to run in many different computer languages. This IDE is lightweight, and because of that, you can use it on any kind of computer, even if it's performance is not that great. It is also good to mention that it is open-source and free. Therefore, anyone can download it directly from internet. A great factor is also that this IDE is executable on Linux and Windows. It is updated almost every week, which is nice, because of that small mistakes get fixed fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not custumizable at all. Themes are hard to switch. I also don't like the fact that this IDE is not avilable on MAC OS. It also doesn't have dark theme wich is unacceptable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it. Totally worth it. The 2nd best IDE to use for programming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Becouse it is free, and also lightweight you can use it on any computers, therefore it is great for any schools that require some programming. I do all the work in Code::Blocks and it makes my day easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Code::Blocks supports many programming languages. This IDE is lightweight. Because It is very to use with any kind of PC without worrying about the performances and hardware of that PC. And it is open-source and free. Therefore, we can download it easily from the internet. And another thing is, we can use it with any Operating System such as Windows, Linux etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Code::Blocks does not provides immediate suggestions when I coding. So, the errors of the code are hard to find and solve. Therefore, when working on a huge project, much time is taken to complete the project. Because for handling the errors of the code takes much time and money also. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code::Blocks is a very special IDE among all others because it supports multiple compilers such as Visual C++, Microsoft Visual C++, GCC and much more. This is the reason for having an overall positive perception about Code::Blocks on my mind. Because Code::Blocks provides a platform to work with the number of programming languages. So, I have been using Code::Blocks since in university. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The fact that you have to install a certain version with a GNU GCC compiler or else the program just won't work. There's also some little things the compiler will skip over but if you are starting out with programming that shouldn't be a problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I primarily use codeblocks for c++ development. The plugin support is very good. Since it is an open source tool, we can add several features into it like different font styles, dark mode etc. The workspace is amazing. There are a lot of options available at top to make life simple. Error tracing, syntax highlighting etc are some of the feature i like about codeblocks Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Codeblocks should had to have inbuilt dark mode, which i have to tweek externally to achieve. Also at times it feels like codeblocks is running slow. Otherwise all good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to code c++ then i don't think that there is another that good open source available software that you can use. Plugin support is excellent. Workspace arrangement is excellent Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Code::Block is a free, open-source IDE: I just told everything.

If you want to begin programming with C/C++ language, I recommend you this IDE, because it is very easy to use and to install.

In spite of Eclipse, it is more lighter and it could run on older platforms, even if they have 1GB of RAM. Eclipse requires a lot more memory and CPU.

Compiling times are blazing fast, surely Code::Blocks is the best open-source platform for software developing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some plugins from other platforms/IDE are missing, but nothing considerable.

Overall, nothing to say about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In order to set up the compiler for Code::Blocks, I recommend you to use MinGW compiler. It is easy, free and you have a guide here: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/MinGW_installation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coding and writing softwares in C/C++ language in the organization, as it is a IT (and also printing) organuzation. It made things very easy, thanks to a non-confusing UI, with essential buttons and elements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

One of the best things i liked baout code blocks is that it supports multiple compilers such as Borland C++, Microsoft Visual C++ and many more. It also supports different programming languages such as JAVA or atleast it provides support for this language. When writing multiple code, the code editor is organised within multiple tabs. while dubugging it has a full breakpoint support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dont like about this software is that it is not available on MAC OS because while using this on windows, a program was compiled and completed but when it was supposed to be run on another computer which turned out to Mac, it didnt worked and was stuck without any help. So I hope that in future, they make it compatible with Mac OS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try this software if you want to use it for multiple compilers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it to build programs for projects which are helpful for students and makes it easy for them to understand the programming language. It has helped a lot to represent program in a simpler and readable way. Even when there is a problem in the code then it is highlighted with different colors which help to realise what kind of mistake is been occurred. After compilation also it opens up in a different set of tabs which again help to navigate between different tabs with multiple programs. It also helps to create different file and project file.
