Integrated Development Environment, or IDE, is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers, developers and software engineers to facilitate the development of software. An IDE typically includes a source code editor, build automation tools, and a debugger, all integrated into a single user interface.

Apart from these standard features, IDE also includes additional capabilities for code analysis, and project management. It provides integrations with version control systems and also support plugins or extensions that extend the functionality of the IDE by adding new features, tools, and integrations.
