    What tools do you use to develop the plugins?

    Hello, I'm very used to Java's Eclipse IDE (if you're familiar with it) and I was wondering if there's any good IDE's for plugin development that could be used? I'm using Notepad++ at th emoment but wondering if there's something better? preferbly something with the auto-complete feature sometimes called intelligence<soemthing or other> ?

    You can use the free Microsoft Visual Studio Community: https://www.visualstudio.com/product...o-community-vs

    I run Visual Studio 2013 with ReSharper. It works great for smaller files but is a very big resource hog for larger ones.

    Thanks for replying. Just to confirm, exactly what language are these plugins written in? is it C?

    Just wanted to post a reply to help anyone else looking to develop the plugins. The IDE that I have found most easiest to use was indeed the Visual Studios 2013 WITHOUT the reshaper thing. I looked at the reshaper thing and it cost a lot of money however I discovered within Visual Studios 2013 itself it has a built in "intelligence" system whereby it will do exactly what I described as needing so it doesn't need the reshaper for those that are looking unless you really want to use it.

    PS: don't get me wrong, I appreciate greatly that you responded to my questions with advice and thanks to you I decided try Visual Studios its just im not rich

    Neither am I, I was just able to access it through my school's license they allow for students. It's a really nice tool, and worth it if you can find a way to access it. General visual studio is a great IDE by itself though.

    As I said in my previous reply, Visual Studio Community (Visual Studio 2015) is free.
