    Default What's the best editor for ExtJS?

    Hello guys!

    Glad to be back on ExtJS bandwagon after couple of years. I actually posted the same question 2 years ago but hope there is a good editor now. Previously, I used spket / webstorm. I like spket but it was missing a lot of api and for webstorm..JSDoc was not working. For spket, I guess I needed jsb3 that contained everything....

    Anyways, any advice? Also, do you guys know a easy way to create jsb3 file for webstorm? I remember jsb files were part of the zip but that's long gone now.

    Glad it's just not me. I like WebStorm but JSDoc doesn't work..which means I get the method name but don't know what it suppose to do. So, I have to look up online API..which is very annoying. Then I use Spket, which displays the JSDoc but very limited autocomplete API... man... I wonder what editor Sencha developers are using.

    I want to get the answer too. Eclipse doesn't support Extjs well.

    Default There is none

    Hello,
    From my personal experience there is no good reliable complete editor for ExtJS, yet. Full stop.

    Depends what you want. WebStorm/PHPStorm (I use IDEA) are good ones.

    VIM is the superior editor for all things. That is all.

    man.. still not a good editor. I tried webstorm..it does give great "autocomplete" methods but it doesn't show the JSDoc.. so that sort of defeats the purpose since I still have to look up the online API.

    Ok time to start a holy war. I see your stance on VIM and challenge it with Emacs!

    Actually, to be perfectly honest I use nano when on the command line.

    As far as a proper IDE goes I've found Netbeans has really good support. It's what I use pretty much exclusively. Oh and the only thing required is that the library has to be in the sources folder of your project and you get code completion w/ function signatures & api doc.

    It would be nice to have an IDE that has good support for EXT, Compass/SASS, etc all rolled in one.

    What I really want is a GUI tool for creating themes.
