    Default best ExtJS IDE?

    best ExtJS IDE?


    I tried using Aptana but it seems like the extension is supporting ExtJS 2.2 - perhaps this is fine and I am going to evaluate Spket IDE next, but I'm wondering what the hardcore users / devs are actually using for 4.0

    I recently evaluated a wide range of IDE's/Editors.
    (my existing editor of choice was Coldfusion Studio 5)


    Evaluation list

    Aptana
    CF Builder
    Dreamweaver 2004 MX
    Dreamweaver CS 3
    Eclipse
    EditPlus
    IntelliJ Idea
    Komodo
    Macromedia HomeSite +
    Notepad++
    Sublime Text
    Visual Studio 2010 Pro


    My goal was to get a high performance Editor that provided Java script, EXTJS, HTML and Coldfusion support. i.e. syntax highlighting, colour schemes and tag suggestions.

    I found that "Notepad++" was the best fit for my needs, even though the CF support is limited.

    “Sublime Text” is a superb editor but lacks EXT JS and CF support.

    I really wanted “IntelliJ Idea” to be the winner (Excellent UI and language support), however this suffered from performance & interface chug issues, as did pretty much all of the large footprint Editors.

    So what's the deal with phpStorm vs WebStorm? Based on the feature pages alone, it looks like WebStorm has weaker PHP support than phpStorm and that phpStorm has weaker support for JavaScript, CSS, HTML than WebStorm.

    PHPStorm is WebStorm + PHP support. I use PHPStorm for ExtJS development as I also do a lot of PHP development - it's easily the best IDE I've ever used.

    See this thread I created recently

    http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...117#post572117

    Basically, Spket is your best bet or at least that's what I found out.

    Thanks guys - I actually am an IntelliJ IDEA user (for Grails support), and while it's very robust it is just so damn laggy. I am checking out WebStorm now - hoping it's much more light weight

    well also check out komodo and spket per other thread's suggestion

    Did you try to only include the necessary js files? Aka - only the debug version of extjs, without the examples/docs/etc? I bet any IDE will lag if he's got to scan 600+ js files.
