Ext JS IDE Support Roundup

Category: JavaScript, Sencha

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the different IDEs and the support they offer for the various JavaScript libraries. Ext’s uber-coder, Jack Slocum, has put up a blog entry explaining which IDEs support the Ext JS framework:

The Ext 2.0 API is very extensive and remembering all of the functions, properties or configs available is virtually impossible. The API documentation is very thorough, but it would be nice if IDEs would provide code assist options in JavaScript as they do in other languages such as Java and C#. Luckily, there are some IDEs and plugins available that do just that — and also have direct support for Ext 2.0.

Included in the mix are:

This great news and it shows that IDE vendors are taking JavaScript frameworks seriously. Anything that makes development easier is definitely welcome.

IntelliJ IDEA actually has much better JS support than Eclipse with the Aptana plugin.
