C/C++ Integrated Development Environment Considerations
Supported Languages: While all C/C++ IDEs support C and C++, many support other languages as well. When purchasing an IDE, consider all the languages your business uses, and select an IDE that supports them all.
Code Blocks: Some C/C++ IDEs include prewritten code blocks new developers can use to create certain functionalities. These can be particularly useful for new developers, though these features are often on premium priced IDEs, so consider how much you need them when making a purchase.
Plugins/Integrations: Many C/C++ IDEs include built in support for plugins or integrations that extend their functionality. One common integration is with Github for version control. Consider what integrations and plugins you want to use when choosing an IDE.
