When it comes to setting up an integrated development environment (IDE), programming applications on Ethereum is similar to programming any other software project. There are many options to choose from, so at the end of the day, pick the IDE or code editor that best suits your preferences. Most likely the best IDE choice for your Ethereum development is the IDE you already use for traditional software development.

If you're looking to fiddle with code before you set up a local development environment, these web apps are custom-built for Ethereum smart contract development.

Remix - Web-based IDE with built in static analysis, and a test blockchain virtual machine

ChainIDE - A cloud-based multi-chain IDE

Replit (Solidity Starter) - A customizable development environment for Ethereum with hot reloading, error checking, and first-class testnet support
