Any good Arduino ID...

Any good Arduino IDE out there?

After using Code Blocks and Sublime Text for C++ and Python, the Arduino IDE seems a little bit incomplete for me. It doesn't show you a list with variables and functions when you start to type their name and the text is only orange or black... (actually, there are other little thing I don't like). Any IDE suggestion for Arduino?

Hi John,

I've looked at a few alternatives, but in my experience the lack of, or incomplete support of, library management and supported boards, kind-a eliminates most of them for me.
So I'm sticking to the standard Arduino IDE.

I'm sure the different alternatives keep developing, and I'm also 100% sure I haven't seen them all.

To name a few:

So there are alternatives, but at the moment I do not like any of them.
If you're a software developer, you could download the source of the Arduino IDE and extend its functionality - but I can imagine that would be a bit much
