Are there any GB assembly programming IDEs?

I don't know where to find gameboy assembly IDEs for programming a cartridge.

Re: Are there any GB assembly programming IDEs?

No IDE per se exists, but VSCode with Dovuro's GBZ80 extension is quite popular. It does syntax highlighting and a few things more.
The problem with an IDE is the fact that different people like different build systems, which obviously doesn't allow for project management.
I like including everything into one main file and then compiling that, whilst others prefer a makefile for faster rebuilds.

As for programming the cartridge, that depends on the flashcart you own, each one usually utilizes different flasher software, meaning an IDE couldn't include that either.
