Dreamweaver 8 ftw!


I've used Dreamweaver before, why is it so popular?  I fail to see the big deal about it...


its easier to create divs and stuff.


Doesn't really seem like a valid reason as almost every editor has that feature...

I had a go...
I must say, I think it's overrated. I suppose the cool thing about it is you get a little sort of "legend" of all your files, but it's not really that much better than notepad's tabs.

I still prefer notepad :P

I use multiple editors.  For small/quick edits I'll use VIM, for larger edits I'll use Gedit/notepad++ but for big projects, for example, if I'm working on the java web tools at work, I have to use Eclipse.  Like stated multiple times in this thread, it mostly comes down to preference, not necessity.  And again, most of us are giving input from the perspective of maintaining web sites, which are relatively small compared to corporate or enterprise scaled projects...

I've been using Dreamweaver for editing and have recently started using Eclipse for debugging.

I find Eclipse really really slow however and now it's started throwing errors everytime I do anything.  Can anyone recommend any other free editors that allow debugging control.

NetBeans, I just found out, is a really good editor that is fast (a lot faster than eclipse) and works well. I would have to recommend that one.

I've been using NetBeans for the last while. It seems very responsive and much more stable than Eclipse based IDEs. I think I'll probably make it my main editor.

Eclipse, or more specifically.. Aptana Studio.
Was a bit sluggish opening files before, but with the recent patches (or my OS reinstall, don't know which of the 2) it's really responsive and since it's eclipse there's no shortage of other plugins.

I am using an underpowered laptop, and NetBeans runs respectably enough for me.
If you goto tools > plugins and then select the 'Installed' tab, you'll probably find some stuff you that can disable (depending on which features / how many, there should be some performance improvements).

I had a go with net beans...didn't care for it.

I find it annoying the way it will autocomplete a quote for you, but it won't put the semicolon on the end. That means you just have to navigate around to append the semicolon.

It probably would have been faster if I just typed the extra quote myself tbh.

Or just press the End key or right arrow key.

Yeah, that's what I mean. If I just typed it myself I wouldn't have to :P

I think it's a nice gesture...it just doesn't really do me any favours.

How can it know if you want a semi-colon? Either way, it's considerably more useful for the various types of brackets where you may have multiple nested levels. Ever tried writing even something trivial in Lisp/Scheme? I'm sure you would appreciate bracket matching and bracket completion. Even in PHP it can be nice to ensure that you have the correct amount of brackets.

Learn to put the semi-colon before you type in the statement. Just make that a habit and viola soon enough your speedier than you thought.
