GNOME Builder is that interesting GNOME IDE project for developers.

Since this summer Christian Hergert has been hard at work on building "Builder", a new integrated development environment designed for GNOME developers. The GNOME Builder isn't expected to compete with Eclipse, Qt Creator, and the likes, but is focused solely around the GNOME development workflow and the needs of GNOME developers. Builder is focused on C, Vala, JavaScript, and Python language support. Builder also has plans for GObject Introspection integration, PerfKit integration, GDB support, Clang integration, etc. Hergert is so committed to builder that he had quit his day job at MongoDB to focus on Builder for one year.

Christian Hergert wrote a new blog post today to provide an update on Builder. GNOME's Builder has made much progress to the UI, Christian is using Builder to build Builder, there is a VIM mode for the editor, split views are now supported by the editor, MarkDown and HTML are supported by the editor, via gnome-code-assistance is editor code assistance, editor state tracking, style schemes, a global search, a command bar, and numerous other additions have landed in this open-source IDE for GNOME.

Those wishing to find out more about these latest Builder improvements can read Christian's blog post.
