Most of the developers use the command line tools directly, along with a
simple text editor, such as vim, emacs, or, in one case, nano.  I am not
aware of any developer using an IDE for Asterisk development, although
we also use myriad tools such as gdb, valgrind, and other external tools
for debugging.
