Yes - they have NetBeans (with plugins) for PIC, and I presume they still have Atmel's MSVS-based Visual Studio.

To ensure chaos, do Microsemi (now owned by Microchip) tools use Eclipse? https://www.investors.com/news/technology/microchip-stock-microsemi-inventory/

Right - after buying Atmel, there's Atmel studio, which should disappear the way of dinosaurs. It forces the whole Microsoft IDE environment, and it is a PITA for us non- Windows users. Eclipse is actually pretty flexible, if it is used with standard GNU makefiles, written by the programmer and not the IDE. -- -TV

If you aren't afraid of Python, take a look at scons. I usually use scons to do the compilation and makefile to do everything else. -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lSzL1DqQn0
