User Reviews

  • Best cross-platform IDE.

  • Very fast, easy, with nice design IDE.

  • I had problems with the lastest wxpack and compiling wxwidgets for myself and getting it to work with codeblocks. CodeLite just has it all and ready. It had conflicts with my antivirus when it didn't let me build and clean so I had to add the folder path as trusted. Makes life easy. It's amazing how it's one of its kind.

  • The latest version (6) does not work for me in Windows. When I am compiling Codelite removes the "\" in the paths, so it can't find MinGW. Instead of looking for C:\MinGW\bin\g++.exe it looks for C:MinGWbing++.exe

  • Codelite is already very convincing. It conquered my "most used C IDE" spot within days. Top work! :) What is missing is a way to reopen workspace view without reseting the UI (and losing all your changes to it). Autocomplete could also use some work. But I really LIKE IT!
