Overall Satisfaction with Eclipse

We use Eclipse-based IDE like QNX Momentics, NXP KDS, and TI's Code composer. This includes R&D and Testing. It provides one single platform to write code, compile, flash it on target, debug, and unit testing.
  • Debug.
  • Compilation.
  • Support for different build systems like CMAKE.
  • Easy to get standard plugins from marketplace.
  • RAM usage.
  • Hang issue at times.
  • Improve support for CMAKE. Currently, it cannot directly import CMakeList file as project.
  • Free to use.
  • Overall good experience.
I think if the resolve the following 2 things I would give 10/10.

1. Hang issues
2. Support for CMake
It has everything that the developer needs to do the job. Few things that I have used in my day-to-day development

1. Console output.
2. Software flash functionality supporting multiple JTAG vendors like J-LINK.
3. Debugging capabilities like having a breakpoint, looking at the assembly, looking at the memory etc. this also applies to Embedded boards.
4. Plug-in like CMake, Doxygen and PlantUML are available.

Do you think Eclipse delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Eclipse's feature set?


Did Eclipse live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Eclipse go as expected?


Would you buy Eclipse again?


Eclipse is well suited when team wants only 1 IDE to do all the work.

Legacy project with different build system that Eclipse might not support.
