Oh, another thing worth mentioning. It’s cross platform. Built on java, Aptana runs beautifully on my Mac, and while performance is still to be determined, It will run on my PC at work as well.
Oh and ANOTHER another thing. It’s free. Not as in beer…really, totally free. Even support is free. There appears to be thorough documentation, a forum, and a developers blog. Quite a bit of information for a product thats in beta.
Don’t forget, it also supports the same features for (x)HTML, and CSS.
All in all, I’m sure this product will end up helping out ALOT in turning my learning curve into a flat line. While it may fall short at some point, in the mean time, its a hell of a lot better than anything I’ve used so far. I’ll be reporting back with good and bad over the next week, since I have a ton of JS development to do. Please feel free to comment on your experiences as well. Find a power-trick? Please, share!
Edit: 7:49am, 7/27/06 One minor annoyance, and I should have seen this coming: Application performance is pretty hokey on PC…thanks to the Java platform being…well…the java platform. Oh well…once you’re in a screen, the lag goes away, but moving from dialog box to dialog box definately has some noticable lag. Bah.
