As the title says. Would you choose XCode? Or a 3rd party's like AppCode by Jet Brains.

Very much a personal choice!

 

I have found that AppCode's code completion is faster and a lot better in cases. The ability to tweak the editor in AppCode is nice. It's a much better editor that XCode and they have strong support for code generation. On the flip-side and the annoying part for me is that XCode supports the complete app and not just code. AppCode doesn’t support storyboards or XIBs. While this is understandable, if you are doing UX work, then you need to fallback on Xcode anyway so you effectively have both of them running which gets a little annoying. I rather just use XCode.

Thanks mate for your opinion!

 

 

 

I think I will use XCode. For Java I used IntelliJ which in my opinion is the coolest, sleekest IDE for Java in the world but when it comes to anything Apple I better stick with XCode :)

Have you looked at Visual Studio for Mac community edition?

Also, I think there is a plugin for Visual Studo Code which is a lightweight multi-platform efitor.

I didn't know there was Visual Studio for Mac! I use it on my PCs and it is great. Will check it out.

Microsoft Visual Studio for Mac is awesome if you are wanting to build cross platform apps in C#. The latest versions especially work very well providing for a seamless programming experience. Visual Studio for Mac doesn’t support Swift though.

Microsoft code editor - Visual Studio Code does but similar to AppCode it’s great for coding not providing an entire experience around UX so you still have to switch back to XCode anyways.
