Although I continually try several editors and IDE's out there, I always end up moving back to EditPlus at work (Windows environment). It is very configurable, fast loading, and just works. There are several syntax files available for a wide variety of languages.
For home, I typically use vim on Linux and have started looking at TextMate as my main system is OS X (which I love). Am going to check out the E Text Editor; wasn't aware of a TextMate clone for Windows. Typically, I end up with smaller editors vs large IDE's; they just feel quicker and easier and I have to switch languages frequently.
Right now I am using Aptana, which is as already said terribly slow and I also found lots of bugs. But as I did not yet find a better one, I am still using it.
In the last days I was pointed to
which supports Ext directly which sounds great, but still it's Eclipse based and therefore not faster than Aptana. Also it is not free for commercial use, so one must argue about the benefit.
I'll have to test it, planning to let you know about the results.
When edit in Spket IDE, you will not feel any delay, and it cause less CUP usage, and it use less memory(In my computer, it stable at 80MB, Aptana[2.8.15041] very quick up to 200MB).
Eclipse based not necessary means it must be slow...
Spket IDE - Development Tool for RIA
currently experimenting with Turbo JBuilder 2007 (eclipse based) + Spket plugin -- pretty impressive so far.
Turbo JBuilder 2007:
impressive - yes
memory hog - yes (even with 2 gigs of RAM)
back to the drawing board...
i'll stick with spket standalone for now.
Great to see this discussion on tools. FYI, if anyone's interested in or using Komodo already, Todd Whiteman (a Komodo developer) just posted a CIX file made just for ExtJS. Details are at: http://community.activestate.com/for...-extjs-yui-ext
I'm sure he'd love feedback from Ext users.
Disclosure: I work for ActiveState, makers of Komodo.
Ok... As someone just coming up to speed on ext js, I have to say that the Spket editor has been a wonderful find. Features it offers include code hints, code completion (yes - for ext js syntax), documentation (again, ext js-specific)... I did however run into a hell of a puzzler tonight when I discovered, after some hairpulling, that it was doing some serious caching and getting itself out of synch with more recent edits in other editors.
Is anyone else using Spket? ...and running into the same caching behavior? On the latter, I'm going to start a separate post.
what exactly should this CIX file provide? I just installed Komodo 4.1.1 with Ext code intelligence enabled. But I neither get some meaningfull output in the 'Code' window nor does the autocomplete feature work in any way (as opposed to the python example project)
