PYPL has released the August update for its index of integrated development environment (IDE) popularity. Visual Studio and Eclipse were the leaders by a wide margin; both had more than twice as much share as third-place Android Studio. “It’s surprising how a couple of IDEs have about half the popularity,” PYPL’s Pierre Carbonelle said.

The index bases its popularity rankings on searches for IDEs. The top 10 on the list included the following:

  1. Visual Studio — 22.4 percent
  2. Eclipse — 20.38
  3. Android Studio — 9.87
  4. Vim — 8.02
  5. NetBeans — 4.75
  6. JetBrains IntelliJ — 4.69
  7. Apple Xcode — 4.35
  8. Komodo — 4.33
  9. Sublime Text — 3.94
  10. Xamarin — 3.46

The company also published a list of the most popular cloud development environments. Cloud9 and JSFiddle led that list; each had more than a 30 percent share.
