So far in my programming experience and career, it seems that if you are working in a static language it is generally a good idea to use an IDE to reap the benefits, even if it isnt your favorite text editor. If you finish the functionality of an application in less time because of an IDE, you should use it.

Dynamic languages on the other hand always feel uncomfortable with an IDE, and I generally prefer simple text editors. Something like sublimetext2 is perfect for lua & python with me because its vim with a few key functions that are extremely useful.

Also @vrld great post about unix-as-IDE.

I use Sublime. partially because I use it for all my other python/ruby/c coding. partially because I love goto anything and its fuzzy matching. and partially because I can build and run my .love file in one click(well actually two clicks ctrl+B) with it's build system.

yay Sublime!!!

I tried nano (with color support) and gedit and they were cools. I also tried (once again) vim but i can't remeber all the shortcuts to take all benefits from this wonderfull editor. Geany is the best solution i found. I can launch the löve project i'm working on with a simple button.

Same here, Sublime Text 2 is easy to use and smooth (that's why I use it!)
Good work getting this far, future starter! That said, if you are simple-minded, old, or irradiated in such a way that the future should not start with you, please return to your primitive tribe and send back someone better-qualified for testing.

My setup is a text editor/file manager/terminal emulator triple-play. Specifically, I use Kate, Dolphin, and Konsole, the standard KDE programs for this task. I tile the windows so Kate takes up half of my screen while Dolphin and Konsole use the other half.
