Eclipse IDE with Aptana
I had recently set up Aptana on Eclipse to test out HTML5/JS/CSS/PHP integrated development. Among the options:
Aptana Plug in
I have tested them all, starting with Aptana. At the time, the plug-in server they offer was down, so I moved on. The other options were found lacking in particulars previously detailed. Now the plug-in service is back online, so I revisited it. The verdict: In hindsight, I'm glad it was down so I could see what other options are available. Now that it is working, I can thoroughly endorse this solution. Here's why:
Full AC functionality:
Enable third-party js libraries:
Predictive incorporation of project libraries:
Rails, Python, and PHP Debug support:
I will see about PHP frameworks with unit testing next. Ah the comforts of a comprehensive IDE.
