Set up to develop gazebo

Hello, I am able to build and run gazebo in the terminal without any issues. If I open up the project in eclipse I can run it and now build it as well but I am still having trouble getting eclipse to recognize the included files which results in eclipse telling me that almost every class has undeclared function and other errors. I am using eclipse-Juno and Arch linux.

My question is: is there a "best" way to set up gazebo in an IDE to develop and understand how gazebo works? I am hoping that someone could share what has worked for them.

Thank you!

I have managed to do that in Qt developer. It's pretty straight forward. You load the project via the CMakeLists.txt file

I used Gazebo along with ROS with gazebo_ros_pkgs. Therefore, I can put my Gazebo source files in a catkin workspace. That is to say, I can now treat them as ROS packages. In this respect, there are several IDEs for your choice. Personally, I used QtCreator that provides many useful features. You can load your package by opening the CMakeLists.txt in QtCreator.
