Eclipse Reviews & Product Details


What is Eclipse?

Eclipse is famous for our Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE), but our C/C++ IDE and PHP IDE are pretty cool too. You can easily combine language support and other features into any of our default packages, and the Eclipse Marketplace allows for virtually unlimited customization and extension.

"Good IDE for Java Development and Interface Creator"

What do you like best?

Eclipe's versatility is the main subject that comes to mind when you think in what you like. There are tons of plugins and custom interfaces for making graphical applications that can help you in your need. There are IDEs for making custom Eclipse based applications, also there are tools for other programming languages, like PHP Development Tools, Dbeaver (which I use frequently at work as a Database Administrator), etc.

What do you dislike?

It is too heavy. If you don't have an good working setup, you will frequently see Eclipse using a good ammount of RAM and processing. It takes too long to compile simple applications, it's like to use a cannon to kill a fly if you need a fast IDE to make a simple solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you like using frameworks and needs language versatility (and still you have not to worry about having a good hardware), Eclipse can help you a lot.

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

Well, I use Dbeaver all the time, which is an multi-engine Database Manager. It is easy to install, I can use it in almost any Linux environment. At my company, Dbeaver is used by all of the programmers and BI managers. I don't like programming Java, but when I need it, Eclipse is my buddy.

"Most powerful Software Development tool "

What do you like best?

I found it very useful as any of the languages can be used and work on it. The files are easy to maintain and secure with eclipse software. Its Cloud based option is the best thing through which anyone can work anytime anywhere on their project.It is helpful in searching and replacing a code if you find difficult sometimes.Debugging is easy by using this software.

I also liked that with Eclipse IDE it is possible to use different java compiler versions, that provided by Oracle (Oracle JDK) and open source (OpenJDK), both are 100% compatible without any type of program or error. The Eclipse interface can also be modified since it gives us 3 options, the classic, default and the current one that incorporates the most innovative improvements.

Eclipse is great for its Docker integration. We have had a breeze deploying using Docker with Eclipse.

I love Eclipse's local history feature. Even with Git Flow integration, which we also use, it's nice to be able to quickly diff between current and older versions of a file.

Eclipse has a very powerful search feature for finding and replacing code.

Eclipse is also great at refactoring. I love its auto-import and code generation features.

What do you dislike?

i downloaded that software from marketplace many times it do not have any resume option it starts form zero which takes my lot of internet otherwise all things are good.

Entey level developer need to put more efforts - how to use and configure advanced features of this tool except that so far we did not experience any issue with this.

Eclipse has so many windows that it took me years before I wasn't overwhelmed by them. When I first started using Eclipse in 2006 I couldn't stand it.

The learning curve is very steep. There are a hundred little tricks you have to learn.

Sometimes Eclipse can get into a bad state and you have to clear the caches and restart or go through elaborate build-clean-build processes to fix it.

Eclipse can run very slowly.

Eclipse is notoriously bloated with unnecessary features that most of us will never use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use this IDE its good for project development.

Eclipse is great for Java development. It's not my first choice for Android development since Android Studio is so much better now. However, having done Android development in Eclipse for years, it's not that bad for that either. Eclipse is also not my first choice for web development of any kind, despite plugins that go a long way to supporting web languages. There are simply better IDEs out there if you want to write Ruby, Python, Perl, or PHP code. There are also better IDEs and text editors for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and many of the new web technologies like CoffeeScript and Less. I pretty much only use Eclipse for Java development and for that it's a must.

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

My experience with it has been fairly on the positive side, although it has its shortcomings. Mostly, as an IDE though eclipse is very good for Java development.

"Free IDE for all Languages"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is the open source java ide that itself is a advantage. I found it very useful as any of the languages can be used and work on it. The files are easy to maintain and secure with eclipse software. Its Cloud based option is the best thing through which anyone can work anytime anywhere on their project.It is helpful in searching and replacing a code if you find difficult sometimes.

What do you dislike?

Well disliking eclipse is a hard thing as it is great ide to be used by the developers and testers. But sometimes it gets slow and may stuck in between your work. You will need to refresh and save data on a time period basis. One more thing that can make you dislike it is that it is mainly developed for JAVA users. Therefore,if you are good in other languages, you may find it a bit difficult to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you are a developer i would definitely recommend it to be used because of its open source and auto-import feature. It can be used with low efforts and can work on different languages. Eclipse provides you a long learning experience as it has many features that would need years to learn and work on.

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

I am testing engineer but always ready to learn new things. Eclipse has made it easy to learn python and work on it. I have used it in my project and most of the employees in my organization uses it for coding.I use it to search and build codes whenever i find problem to get it work.

"The best Integrated tool to work with ... eclipse rocks"

What do you like best?

i liked the way it works and the way it is designed the simplicity and the ease of use is the best. it also supports many plugins which make my working very easy and smart the intelligent code and code predictor is best it also takes very less time to load as compared to other IDE's, i have been using it since collage days to in my final year project to my industry, i also recommended to many of my friends and my juniors, best and light weight thing to use.

What do you dislike?

I disliked the way the software download works from the market place many times it do not resume and it starts from zero which takes my lot of internet otherwise all things are good, one more thing the support is also week.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

it is best IDE's as compared to others in market go for it.

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

I used it for solving my multiple problems like solving the codes of java in my collage days , making my android projects by using the plugin, and also i am using in my industry for java frameworks like spring boot and hibernate and ant, maven

"Thoughts on Eclipse"

What do you like best?

Eclipse provides a great deal of information about the project, the plugins related to it, its containers and packages. It's console is very good and provides detailed information about the execution. It provides good customization options as well, which is not so commonly found in IDEs. The single breakpoints make code debugging an easy feat. I also like that we can move columns and add or remove them as needed for our data.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse has a very complex setup and is a huge application, so it takes forever to download. The time taken just to load eclipse is really long too and it just crashes sometimes. I think it also lacks automation in terms of task purchases and user interactions.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Understanding the working of Eclipse and everything that is enveloped in it is tedious, but learning about the newer patches and upgrades will be very helpful.

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

Me and my team use eclipse for Java development on multiple research projects. My experience with it has been fairly on the positive side, although it has its shortcomings. Mostly, as an IDE though eclipse is very good for Java development.

"Eclipse - The best IDE for Java Development"

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Eclipse is the simplicity of the program. Eclipse is designed to be simple to a beginner and perfect for the advanced. The IDE is easy to navigate and runs perfectly on our budget computers.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when you get an error and hover over the error icon for their suggestion on how to fix it, it will suggest a solution that will not fix the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend switching to this program if you are using budget computers or if you are seeking a well-designed IDE.

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

I have used Eclipse to help our company program using budget computers. This IDE has helped us program without having major lag delays. Some benefits of us using Eclipse is having minimal lag, many plugins on the market that make our programming more efficient, and being able to customize our IDE to look the way we want it to.

"Eclipse, the Ideal IDE for JAVA/C There"

What do you like best?

There are several features of Eclipse that fascinate me

First, it’s open-source and cross-platform software which easily integrates with different support software such as Linux, Apple OSX and Windows to allow software development in different languages

The software has an internal compiler to detect errors during the development phase

The internal compiler also has the ability to translate the source code into machine code or object code.

Also, being free and open source software makes it accessible to a community of users who can propose updates and improvements freely

What do you dislike?

Despite the above strong areas of Eclipse, it has some shortcomings

First, most of the JAVA language programs which are developed in support of this software are a bit slow. Also, some of the tools which are required for effective programming require the programmer to incur additional cost to get them. A developer must also have a java virtual machine installed in order to work with this software. Finally, Eclipse has a high consumption of computer resources such as processor and RAM

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Having used Eclipse for some time, I would definitely recommend this platform for any programmer. It’s open source software with desirable features. However, the Java Development Kit must be installed first.

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

My company has been using platforms which are very costly. However, with the adoption of the Eclipse as the main software development platform, the company has largely cut the cost on software development. This has seen the company introduce a graduate trainee program because it can allow the development of small programs for programming classes

"Eclipse IDE for JAVA/C"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is an integrated, open-source, cross-platform development environment (Windows, Linux, Apple OS X, etc.) to develop software in multiple programming languages, mainly with the JAVA IDE. It includes a compiler to detect errors and translate the source code to object code or machine code. The good thing about being free software is that it has a community of users behind (foundation eclipse) pending to get updates with improvements, without any profit

What do you dislike?

The programs developed in the JAVA language are usually a tad slow. Further,

some of the tools of java entail an extra cost, part.

You need to have the java virtual machine installed to work. Java Development Kit.

The consumption of resources, such as RAM memory and processor usage is too high.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Choose Eclipse as your ideal integrated development environment, but do not forget to install the Java Developtment Kit

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

It allows us to make small programs in programming class. In a software development company, it could be a development platform adopted without any associated cost.

"IDE perfecto para desarrolladores JAVAEE"

What do you like best?

La facilidad de uso es algo que destaca en este IDE.

Contiene una gran cantidad de plugins que permite utilizar un gran abanico de tecnologías.

Es muy facil de integrar el servidor que se desea utilizar (Wildfly en mi caso) además de otros elementos muy comunes en desarrollos colaborativos como subversión o Git.

La gran comunidad que hay detrás permite un gran soporte y un número elevado de actualizaciones periódicas.

Finalmente, al ser multiplataforma, puedes utilizar cualquier sistema operativo en tú ordenador.

What do you dislike?

Tiene un alto consumo de RAM con lo que en ciertos momentos , y en función de las adiciones realizadas en tu proyecto, será necesario añadir más RAM en la configuración para evitar cuelques o lentitud mientras se trabaja.

Aún bien configurado, en algunas ocasiones es un poco lento su uso.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Una alternativa imprescindible para el desarrollo de soluciones JavaEE.

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

Soluciones empresariales software usando la arquitectura JavaEE en combinación de MAVEN, servidor de aplicaciones WildFly y bases de datos Oracle o postgreSQL.

"power shot sdk"

What do you like best?

eclipse is the software which is widely used among the developers. it is good in every perspective. the sdk of eclipse is very nice and natural. the best thing it has a good editor and it provides the developer a good workspace server and also cloud ide. people can create environment , do coding stuff on the editor and run their code with effectiveness.

What do you dislike?

eclipse is very big in size as it has a lot of inbuilt features and various things are already developed and pre-loaded into it.

the size of the packages are very high but its necessary as it has to compile and run the programs through its library and even more.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

users should at least try this software as this has various feature which makes the work quite effiient and fast. we can simply develop the code and debug and run into it. the best thing is users can simply download and use it any environment . they can simply do into various coding languages also like python, java etc. its editor is too good as it supports various coding languages. the debugger of the eclipse is also very fast.

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

as the eclipse has various packages installed or the package we need we simply import and make the flows run. the business problems like to develop code for implementing the requirements. also helps in debug the existing code with its excellent debugging feature.

"Student/Professional Experience "

What do you like best?

Does the job. When programming in something like Java, or really, learning to program in something like Java, Eclipse is often everyone's go-to. The additional features make a lot more sense when you get used to it, but it is something that takes quite a bit of time to adapt to. However, it does give you quite remarkable capabilities to develop really cool stuff, so I guess that's a worthwhile trade-off. I used eclipse for my first ever introduction to coding, and let me tell you, there was a learning curve.

What do you dislike?

As I have somewhat already mentioned, the learning curve for an IDE like Eclipse is much higher than other IDEs like IntelliJ or VSCode. When being first exposed to Eclipse, you don't know what features you should focus on and what you should ignore. It is a very effective development environment, but it's also not very visually appealing and somewhat painful to look at for hours on hours.

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

Any and all Java development is often best done with eclipse. Or at least that is how I was taught to develop in Java. I also find warnings are more effectively communicated via Eclipse than they are in IDEs like IntelliJ. Many developers who are more experienced feel much more comfortable with Eclipse than with other IDEs.

"Eclipse. Desarrollo de aplicaciones."

What do you like best?

Eclipse es un entorno de desarrollo integrado, de código abierto, multiplataforma (Windows, Linux, OS X de Apple, etc) para desarrollar sofware en multiples lenguajes de programación, principalmente con el IDE de JAVA. Incluye un compilador para detectar los errores y traducir el código fuente a código objeto o código máquina. Lo bueno de ser software libre es que posee una comunidad de usuarios detrás (fundación eclipse) pendiente de sacar actualizaciones con mejoras, sin ningún ánimo de lucro.

Podemos encontrar otras ventajas como:

Ventajas:

*Ofrece un editor de texto con resaltador en varios colores de sintaxis.

*La compilación es en tiempo real, lo cual nos avisa de posibles errores de sintaxis.

*Tiene pruebas unitarias con (JUnit) para comprobar que el programa esta libre de errores de ejecución..

*Control de versiones con (CVS).

*Permite la integración completa con (Ant),

*Incluye asistentes para la creación de los proyectos

*Clases, test, etc...

*Permite incorporar nuevos módulos, también llamados plugin, para ampliar la funcionalidad que a diferencia de otros entornos monolíticos, las funcionalidades están todas incluidas, las necesite el usuario o no.

What do you dislike?

Los programas desarrollados en el lenguaje JAVA suelen ser un pelín lentos. Además,

algunas de las herramientas de java conllevan un sobrecosto a parte,.

Necesitas tener la máquina virtual de java instalada para que funcione. Java Developtmen Kit (JDK) (Java Voirtual Machine).

El consumo de recursos, como memoria RAM y uso del procesador es demasiado elevado.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Elijan Eclipse como su entorno de desarrollo integrado ideal, pero no te olvides de instalar el Java Developtmen Kit (JDK) (Java Voirtual Machine)

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

Nos permite realizar pequeños programas en clase de programación. En una empresa de desarrollo software podría ser plataforma de desarrollo adoptada sin ningún tipo de coste asociado.

Se echa en falta más soporte para webapps como jsp y servlets.

"Review eclipse as a Java developer"

What do you like best?

The most I like about eclipse is its auto fill code and suggestions while coding. And pointing out the errors is utmost easy with IDE like eclipse.It shows a proper directory structure which will make us navigate easily from one class to another and one project to another.

What do you dislike?

The thing i dislike about eclipse is the look and colors of the application. It hasn't changed much over the years and I don't much able to find the differences between each updates.I also don't like eclipse as it is not possible to see only a single project for that eclipse window. A single eclipse window will show all the projects in it.and javascript and html are not good in eclipse like notepad++ or visual studiocode

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Eclipse is the most famous Java IDE in the world. People who start learning java should start practice with eclipse , as it will save time and make the student understand mistakes very easily in the learning process. There are many shortcuts available in the eclipse, which will almost auto fill half of the code , when you write basic entities required in the class.

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

Currently, I am working on multiple projects using Java based frameworks.The most benefits I find are the suggesting the import statements and adding jar files to classpath evnthough they are not present in the current projects classpath . Eclipse suggests to import jars that are there in other projects classpath. It makes it easy to rather again going and searching for jar downloads.

"Perfect IDE for project development"

What do you like best?

Application development with this IDE is very easy. Integration with different tools is so smooth and this has different plugins so we are abke to use these as per the need. We are easily able to use required themes in our project on the requirements basis to add the enrich look and feel in application.

Its Intellisense functionality is much helpful during programming. This tool is pretty much secure, powerful and reliable. Its a cross platform comaptible.

In this tool build, debugging process are so simple.

What do you dislike?

Entey level developer need to put more efforts - how to use and configure advanced features of this tool except that so far we did not experience any issue with this.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, go for this IDE its a perfect tool for project development.

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

Reduced time on project development efforts as this task became easy with this tool. Improved project delivery and increased productvity.

Build process is easy and quick.

"Eclipse. El IDE top mundial."

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Eclipse es que es gratuito y no supone una inversión económica para mi empresa, y en cambio, nos da un servicio muy útil, pues nos ofrece un entorno integrado de desarrollo para programar en lenguajes como Java.

Es multi plataforma, pudiendo ser usado en ordenadores con sistemas operativos linux, mac o windows.

Ofrece coloreado de la sintaxis en función del lenguaje de desarrollo.

Posibilidad de integrar pluggins para ampliar funciones.

Posibilidad de compilación en tiempo real.

Múltiples pestañas para editar varios archivos al mismo tiempo.

Posibilidad de utilizar con lenguajes de programación estructurados y orientados a objetos, incluso para lenguajes de marca también es válido.

What do you dislike?

Voy a mencionar algunos aspectos que no me gustan, pero que no desmerecen poner nuestra confianza en este IDE tan popular.

Consume gran cantidad de recursos de nuestra máquina, principalmente RAM.

Hay errores a la hora de integrarse con algunos pluggins específicos.

La interfaz transmite poca confianza, pues es de aspecto antiguo y obsoleto. Hay que mejorar urgentemente en este sentido.

Las actualizaciones podrían ser más periódicas.

Se echan en falta mejores traducciones de las funciones en la aplicación.

No trae de serie un controlador de versiones, para facilitar el trabajo colaborativo en equipo.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yo recomendaría utilizar Eclipse como IDE para novatos que se inician en el aprendizaje de la programación tanto como para expertos que dedican su profesión a la programación, independientemente del lenguaje, pues Eclipse no es para nada específico para un único lenguaje.

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

Existen diferentes IDE para multitud de lenguajes de desarrollo, y con Eclipse conseguimos reunir todo lo que necesitamos en un único entorno en lugar de tener varios específicos para cada lenguaje. Lo utilizamos para nuestros cursos de programación orientada a objetos con java, y también para programación estructura en C.

"Multi-platform IDE"

What do you like best?

Eclipse is an IDE that supports many programming languages so, unlike other similar applications, it does not need external plugins to be compatible with programming languages. One of the best things we can do with Eclipse IDE is to manage the database remotely through the MySQL interface that exists in the eclipse Marketplace.

I also liked that with Eclipse IDE it is possible to use different java compiler versions, that provided by Oracle (Oracle JDK) and open source (OpenJDK), both are 100% compatible without any type of program or error. The Eclipse interface can also be modified since it gives us 3 options, the classic, default and the current one that incorporates the most innovative improvements.

What do you dislike?

The application consumes a considerable amount of RAM and this is due in large part to the use of the virtual java machine. The high consumption of RAM limits a bit when using Eclipse IDE on certain old computers or laptop with a small amount of RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Eclipse is one of the best IDE to program in Java, Php or C ++ since it was one of the first applications of this type that was created and therefore is the leader in this aspect the other IDEs usually copy what implements Eclipse first. Also Eclipse is an application free of charge since the project is maintained thanks to donations.

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

With Eclipse I can program much faster because the program automates most of the process thanks to its auto completion, templates for files and shortcut to perform the actions much faster than looking for them with the mouse. The debugger that provides the IDE for java and C ++ provides very good information about compilation errors so it is very useful to solve bugs.

"Easy source code review without leaving your Eclipse perspective! Join the thousands of developers ."

What do you like best?

I have been using eclipse for many years, long ago eclipse was the only java IDE that existed and was widely used and known all over eclipse is famous for our Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE), but our C/C++ IDE and PHP IDE are pretty cool too. You can easily combine language support and other features into any of our default packages, and the Eclipse Marketplace allows for virtually unlimited customization and extension.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse is a memory eater.It’s never satisfied with it’s heap size.It slowed down a fairly great Dell latitude with intel i7 and 8gb RAM. It’s routine to kill the eclipse process every now and then.

"Good IDE written in java"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Eclipse is the customization capacity offered by the application to organize your work area and be able to use it in a more comfortable and efficient way. There are also a large number of plugins available for eclipse that are created by the community and then placed on the Eclipse Marketplace.

Especially the Git plugin seemed very useful to link my local repository with the remote repository hosted in the repository of GitHub repositories, it is also possible to store the password to avoid having to enter constantly.

And finally another feature that surprised me in eclipse is the integration and ability to use Gradle a library that allows you to manage your projects much more effectively and manages and downloads libraries remotely.

What do you dislike?

- The worst of Eclipse is undoubtedly its outdated interface, unfortunately this IDE is very complete and powerful but visually it is very ugly, especially in its version of linux.

- The rendering and antialiasing of the sources is horrible in the linux version, for example the font consoles in windows works perfectly but in linux it looks pixelated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Eclipse as an IDE to program especially in Java because it is a strong point and also its debugger is the best I've seen so far in any IDE. To program in PHP I recommend you look for another application, I personally do not convince me.

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

The biggest benefit that I have found when using Eclipse has been in the organization of my projects since now I can find everything faster, I have also gained in efficiency and speed when programming thanks to the default templates for the creation of classes.

"Good cross-platform IDE"

What do you like best?

I have been using eclipse for many years, long ago eclipse was the only java IDE that existed and was widely used and known all over the world, during this time I learned everything about its keyboard shortcuts, options etc ...

For me the best of eclipse is that it is an IDE that allows programming in any programming language or at least the most important and known. For all of them, it offers a large number of tools such as autocomplete, documentation, git integration etc ...

But where else highlights eclipse in my opinion is in the plugins section, without the community and its contributions this IDE I think it would have died a while ago, I personally use the plugins of Gradle, Java Build Designer and Color Themes.

What do you dislike?

- It is an IDE too heavy and hungry for RAM, this is largely the fault of being programmed in Java

- I use a plugin for the design of UI in java and it has many glitches graphics and even crash sometimes, I'm talking about the Linux version.

- The interface is very old, even changing between different options available are all very similar, in this aspect eclipse remains behind its competitors.

- Updates are not very common, the last one is 2018

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Eclipse IDE only if you are going to program in Java, you should keep in mind that for Php, python etc ... there are much more developed options that give better support to the language. Regarding java, I recommend you eclipse by your UI designer and Java debugger. Also in Eclipse you do not have to buy licenses to use it.

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

The use that I give Eclipse IDE mainly is programming in Java because even with all its problems eclipse is one of the best IDE to create applications in Java, its debugger is the best thing that I have tried in an IDE until now and you can also create interfaces in a graphic way what makes everything much simpler and faster.

"IDE for general purposes"

What do you like best?

It has a large community, the graphic interface can be modified to your liking. Highlight the code so that it can be understandable, it is light, pleasant at first sight. I can work with java quietly using this IDE.

It is open source, multiplatform, it can adapt to the development of small and medium applications with different programming languages

What do you dislike?

Being a general IDE, which can be deployed many programming languages, it costs to be submerged within some specific, is not focused for mobile development and this is highlighted as a negative point.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The great community that exists for this IDE makes the use very simple, for the basic development is very good, I recommend it for all those who are just immersed in the world of programming, it will be very useful, they will understand it quite fast and can develop and implement different types of languages with this IDE.

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

E deployed small applications without any kind of problem, zero bugs and the operation is quite fluid, I currently perform in the development of algorithms with the Java programming language. I also used it at the time to develop C / C ++ and a bit of PHP.

"Best general IDE out there. Plenty of customizations and a rich feature set."

What do you like best?

Ease of use, good UI, plenty of customizations and a large community. Plenty of plugins for every feature (Git, Maven, Ant, etc). I also find this to be the best IDE UI in terms of ease of use, color scheming, efficiency, etc.

What do you dislike?

Not the best for Android/iOS development (purpose-built products exist for these), but that is to be expected since this is a generic IDE aimed to fill many use cases, vs a deep dive into a few. Also, this may suffer in terms of frequency of product updates, since this is a community-built IDE, but this isn't a big pain point for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best IDE for general programming purposes. If you develop within a framework (Android, iOS), there may be better purpose-built IDEs out there.

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

Great basic IDE for any language you choose. Easy to set up, and installation is portable to different computers. I'm using this for PHP webapp development, a Java headless Unix servlet, code deployment to AWS via external scripts, and as a Wordpress configuration editor.
