Hi, everyone.

I am a beginner in ROS. I am trying to control Baxter Robot using ROS in C++ or Python language. I am following the ROS and Baxter Tutorials to learn it. Till now, I am using gedit editor for code writing.But I found that using the gedit had a problem that I need to switch to terminal for compiling using Catkin_Make and switch back to Gedit in case of any error. Apart from that auto-suggestion and debugging are two big challenges, which are not available in the gedit.

I am looking for an IDE, which has at least following support:

  1. Suitable for ROS C++ and python code development
  2. Auto suggestion while writing the code (like Visual Studio in windows )
  3. Line by line debugging support (Functionality to insert breakpoint)
  4. Go to definition/Find all references (to see the definitions, header files etc)

in addition,I am using ROS Indigo in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 Bit OS.

Thank you.

I assume you mean IDE, not IED. And I recommend you google first; there have been many threads already about IDEs.
