C++ editor/IDE for Mac?

Please don't suggest XCode. I hate XCode.

So, I've recently bought a C++ book called "Jumping into C++", because apparently the tutorials on this website aren't enough to get a good understanding of C++.

The book, so far, has been great. I'm still going over the basics again, because I haven't coded in C++ for a while, but it seems like a good book. But there's only one problem: I can't find a good IDE/Editor!! Here's what I've tried:

XCode
------
Layout is far too small, looks ugly and doesn't have nice code completion.

Code::Blocks
------------
Fantastic, but on Mac if you enable code completion it crashes. There is currently no fix for this.

CodeLite
--------
Crashes on startup. Currently no fix.

NetBeans
--------
Can be slow, and has a very ugly layout.

Emacs
-----
How does anyone use Emacs?? xD

Building C++ myself from Terminal
---------------------------------
A long process

Sublime Text(2 & 3)
----------------------
Doesn't always build correctly. Syntax highlighting doesn't always work correctly.

Eclipse CDT
------------
Couldn't get it to work correctly. Crashes because Eclipse runs out of memory after re-indexing my entire computer.

So, are there any C++ Editors/IDE's out there for Mac? Maybe even a Linux one that works via MacPorts?

Thanks!
Well there's...

Oh...but it is good, shame you hate it.

I can give to you a suggestion -Editor/Compiler- if you don't like the Xcode

Vi Editor + g++ compiler.

1. vi is already installed -there are no step 1-
2.install the "command line tools" from the apple developers page
developer.apple.com (developer account: needed)
3.Open the terminal and enjoy.
