What are nice and recent NSIS IDEs?

the list on the web page is quite long, but there is no info whether it's recent, still maintained or what features it has.

so what do people generally use for medium complex installers? a nice GUI to do design the basic tasks would be nice.

thanks for any info!

Do you need wizards or just code?

All I care about is basic syntax highlighting and being able to press F5 to build and run.

a wizard to get basics like prerequisites and files into the script would be great. so that i would have a good starting point that i can refine if more advanced things are needed.

While it doesn't support anything you mentioned, the Yeoman generator for NSIS is the closest I know of. You can use it to scaffold an installer that suits your basic needs. It can be used from the command-line or within editors such as Visual Studio Code or Atom.
