    Zinjal IDE

    I find some of the IDEs for C and C++ programming a bit over-complicated and I looked around and found Zinjal, which has a nice simple and clean screen, with simple menus. It seems to work very well and if anyone is looking for a similar IDE it is well worth taking a look at it it. Just Google Zinjal for the web page.

    The web page is in Spanish, but has a button for English translation.

    It would appear that the reason for its simplicity is that it was originally designed as a teaching vehicle, but it has progressed well beyond that. It gives you a choice of templates for C++ from C++98 to C++17.

    To date it has compiled and run all the code I have tried and it is very quick

    Does look like a more simple IDE than Code::Blocks.

    The English directions, in the software, do need work. It appears to be not clear on how to build the IDE from source code. And, many of the directions are only in Spanish.

    Edit: I am still not sure if it is "Zinjal" or "Zinjai" the last letter of an I.
