I predominantly use Xilinx, and I don't use much point-and-click at
all. I do all my HDL editing in emacs, including instantiating any of
the Xilinx-provided IP blocks. My main interaction with the Xilinx
software (whether ISE or Vivado) is to click the "generate bitstream"
button.  It's even possible to do that from the command line or a
Makefile, but I haven't bothered.
