I really don't understand, why do you people use primitive text editors instead of full featured IDE which can show you autocomplete not only from love-classes, but also from your own classes. Can your Notepad++, Gedit or Geany do the same?
No, but here's an interesting fact: I, for one, don't care about such features. :awesome:
I don't feel the necessity to use something that doesn't benefit me, when i can accomplish the same goals with a simple code editor.

You can, of course, feel that for you, a full IDE with all the bells and whistles is necessary; tons of people simply don't. It all comes down to personal preferences. :)

Food for thought though: I'd be really happy to have a "semantic highlight/coloring" feature where i could define certain terms or even lines to be in groups like "logging", "input handling", etc. because i'd utilize that more, and yet, this doesn't exist in any application that i've found and tried... whether it was an IDE or just a "primitive" textcode editor. i can only guess at the reasons why, but most probably this: people apart from me didn't need this feature (yet).

IDEs are holdover from the times where it was either that or Microsoft Notepad, or worse - Vi. Same as two-panel file managers coming from the times where it was either that or DOS command line.
...but, i like my two-panel file managers :o:

Modern text editors have all the features you might wish for and they don't suffer from being extremely heavyweight, monolithic and non-customizable like IDEs. Try Microsoft Visual Studio Code text editor.

If I could use Notepad++ without using Wine, then I would be satisfied. But for now, I'm contented with using Linux Mint's Xed.

Atom with plugins (love-launcher, lua-autocomplete, autocomplete-love, fonts) on Linux.

I use an editor called lite, I found it on github earlier this week, most of it's written in Lua and it's been really easy to customize.

Looks pretty much like Atom, but written in lua. No plugins for LOVE yet, but pretty cool non the less.
