Is there any IDE that allows you to draw flowcharts and generate the LaTeX codes? I've searched on google but came accross TikZ which is only a library? Is there any IDE support?

I don't know any dedicated IDE for flowcharts, but Inkscape can generate TikZ code. – Uwe Ziegenhagen Apr 20 '13 at 14:39
Not an IDE specifically for flowcharts but tikzedt can come handy for them too. – Harish Kumar Apr 20 '13 at 14:42
You can also try ipe, ipe7.sourceforge.net – WG- Feb 5 '15 at 12:47

There are many links to various tools working with tikz at texample resources web-page sections (Tools for working with TikZ code, Tools that generate PGF/TikZ code). You can write everything in pure Tikz with editor or use some external program, to convert vector drawing into Tikz code. It's your choise.
