It's been a while since I coded HTML. I used to use Dreamweaver. Sencha Touch (and the iPad) have got me interested in getting back into development. What is the best tool, environment, software for using Sencha Touch?

Google Chrome has good debugging tools then testing in Safari 5 for Ipad.
On apple's website for Safari they even have a way to make it give the ipad userAgent string for testing as well.
I will see if I can find the link real fast and link it.

For editing, some windows favorites are Notepad++, and UltraEdit. Maybe Aptana...

Test using Chrome 5, or Safari 5. I prefer Chrome though. Just hit Shift+Ctrl+J to bring up the debug console.

You also need a web server like Apache, http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.1/platform/windows.html

It's easy to get started with Sencha Touch. Check out this guide: www.sencha.com/deploy/touch/getting-started.html

Cool, what about "writing" the code. This framework still needs to be pulled into an IDE for writing the code. Debugging is part of process. Any recommendations?

Cool, thanks for the info. I think I still have a copy of UltraEdit around here...

I like the idea of using Chrome for testing. I have played with the hift+Ctrl+J function.

I did mention some editors that you could use, but there is drag and drop IDE for building touch apps yet. You really need to know JavaScript, HTML and CSS to do anything serious.

WebStorm (http://www.jetbrains.com/webstorm/) is the best IDE for me.

My developing environment on Mac:

IDE: Eclipse + Spket Plugin
Safari + developer tools for testing and debugging
and final testing on iPad and iPhone :-)

Is there any IDE out there that is a complete solution for Javascript & HTML?
An editor with intelisense, line by line debugging? and a GUI layout tool?

Jvan, I know this is an older thread, but what did you ever find that met your above requirements? Are you still developing ExtJS or Sencha Touch? What are you using?

Thanks!

I recommend Safari. I'm using it on my iPad.
