Does anyone know the best IDE for C Code on a Mac?

I have had it with Eclipse on the Mac. I have unreachable code that I can't even debug b/c of GDB issues. I installed it using homebrew eventually, but it still doesn't quite work correctly and this means I can't debug.

Anyway, I can't find any IDE for Macs that actually seems good. Before you recommend CodeBlocks, I did try it and the periodic crashes are not worth it. I don't want to have to construct my own makefile. Something similar to VisualStudio would be nice. XCode is a bit complicated to use for what I have in mind.

I did look into CLION, but until they provide a default project wizard for C, I'm not considering it. Ido admit that it looks good for C++ though.

I have not codded C on Mac's, but JetBrains makes awesome IDE's for Ruby and Python on Mac's.  So I would believe that their CLion IDE is just as good.
