IDE for developing SQLcipher


Hi, I whould like to open your SQLCipher project but I do not know with which IDE !
I opened it with Eclipse but it does not compile it. Please help…


Problem solved!

./configure --enable-tempstore=yes CFLAGS="-DSQLITE_HAS_CODEC"


I have tested Eclipse and Netbeans but both of them are bad in code completion. What IDE do you use ?


Hello @ray_pixar

It may depend on the type of development you are doing, can you share?


I am just changing some minor codes. Please suggest some powerful IDEs because I also need them to develop my other projects. thanks.


Hi @ray_pixar, when I work on SQLCipher it’s usually in Xcode. @developernotes often works in the venerable emacs. While we’re glad you’re excited to use SQLCipher in your project, we really can’t help you to choose an IDE or teach you how to use it in this forum. If you could be more specific about what you are trying to change and compile (e.g. what is the technical goal here, what are you trying to accomplish?) I think we could make more helpful recommendations to you.


@ray_pixar I should also point out that if what you’re looking to do is Android development, you’ll want to spend time learning about Android Studio, Google’s IDE for Android development.
