I am mostly using Source Navigator, I have to say that I like it because
it does not force me to think in GNOME or something else specific, I can
easily start writing code for 8 bit micro or just take myself familiar
with someone else's code. It can make a flat makefile aswell with simple
dialogs, but I prefer to write Makefiles by myself, and then I just let
this tool to use external Makefile for build command.
Best Regards ...
