Which GUI to use to develop apps in nextcloud

I wonder how to perform apps development with nextcloud , I mean : can I use a tool like visual studio or eclipse to develop my apps in netxcloud ? Or do I have to use nano (basic text editor) ? Or is there other solutions ?
If you can give me some clues I will be happy. I have searched for several hours on the web and I have found nothing to help me …
Thank you

There is no “the Nextcloud IDE”. You can use whatever IDE you want. For the backend stuff you will probably require PHP, making PhpStorm, Visual Studio Code or Eclipse options. For the UI you will probably use something that can deal with Javascript or Typescript, like WebStorm or Visual Studio Code.

Check what languages you will use and then choose a tool which you know and which supports those languages.


ok, thank you Stephan
