What is this? A teaser? A joke? Incomplete text?
There's no link to "Sin IDE" and googling doesn't find it either. What gives?

Watch this space for 'the making of Sin IDE'. Small clue -- I created it in 5 minutes. It has all the features of NetBeans IDE, the Swing Look & Feel of IntelliJ IDEA's Darcula, and the editor appearance of Sublime...

Hi Geertjan,

I was wondering if you have any more information since this initial post showing the steps to customize Netbeans for the "Sin IDE" configurations.

Thank you

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
