IDE Suggestions for Mac?

+1 Colonel Panic · September 13, 2014
I have always used visual studio for most of my coding needs.  Lately my work issued me a macbook and in need of a good ide that I can run natively rather than opening a virtual instance of w8. 

I have been using pycharm for all of my python needs, but need something good for javascript, jquery, perl, ruby, and bash, that has code completions and definitions.  

Any suggestions?

Mostly its debugging features, and the ability to have auto complete of methods for object types.  IE.  If i have "myString" and I put the trailing period, it will show me to see every string function, it's parameters and brief information of the function.

What features are you missing in Sublime ? I admit it has some limitations but they are not that bad, most of the time you can get away with a few workarounds.

I have been using Sublime Text for years.  I love it very much, but it is a text editor, not a full IDE.   I ended up going with a few of the jetbrains IDE's.   They seem to be the most full featured one's available.

Sublime ftw! Trust me :) I have been using it for around 6 months and once you pick up all the shortcuts, install some neat plugins, you will not be able to develop in anything that is not sublime :) I don't want even to talk on how much the speed of the development is increased :)

I've heard IntelliJ being recommended very highly by a lot of people, although I haven't used it personally.

Its mainly a Java IDE but it does supports the languages that you need and has code-completion.

And you could also configure Eclipse to do the same thing via plugins but I don't know how good they are.
