#2819 Best IDE for beginners

Juul Ermens Sun 3 Jan

Hi all,

I am completely new to Fantom and I would like to ask you all wich IDE you recommend for me as a beginner.

I found this list and I downloaded the top one (Eclipse F4). I was wondering if this one is the best one for me.

Hi Juul,

There's another list on fantom-lang IDE page. There are plenty of syntax highlighters for text editors, but for IDEs it's either the eclipse based F4 or NetBeans based FanIDE.

If trying F4, I would download the release from GitHub as that's the latest.

There's also an overview of the F4 IDE in this article and a couple of basic intros to Fantom.

Have fun,
