What dev Text Editor is recommended?

Hi developers, developers, developers,

Just wondering what is the dev text editor of your preference to develop over OJS...
Is there any template, api integration, or whatever to make dev live easier?

Half of my work is related with Drupal so I'm moving from scribes to "sublime text" (despite the non free license)
but I will review my decision if somebody developed a toolbox for other IDE.

Thanks in advance for your time,
m.

Hi Marc,

Some of the dev team uses eclipse... Personally, I use vim. (Why are you laughing?)

Nothing to laugh about... It's a really serious weapon.
You can defeat hundreds of ninjas just with VIM and your bare hands. ;-)

I feel a little bit more comfortable with GUIs but VIM was also in my list of candidates... are you using any "helpers"?
Syntax, autocomplete, templates and so on? And by the way, any debugging tool?

Thanks for your comments,
m.

Hi Marc,

Syntax highlighting, yes; autocomplete, templates and the rest, no. I have a couple of shell scripts to allow me to rapidly access files without a lot of typing, e.g. this one called "fe" (for "find and edit"):
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

NAMES=""
for arg in $@; do
        NAMES="$NAMES "`find . -name ${arg}\* | fgrep -v docs/dev/doxygen`
done
vi $NAMES
This allows me to type "fe SessionManager" to find and edit anything called SessionManager* in my current tree, excluding generated doxygen docs (which may not exist in your tree but create a lot of false matches on mine). It's a lot quicker than typing:
Code: Select all
vi `find . -name SessionManager\*`
I have others for similarly editing files with certain contents.

Cheers,

Thanks Alec for the info.

My list now is reduced to Sublime, VIM or Netbeans. ;-)
Drupal "helpers" will probably decide the match.

Cheers,
m.
