JavaScript in NetBeans IDE?

Check out this JavaScript Editor:

Guess where I found it? Inside NetBeans IDE. It was created by Nicolas Désy. The URL of the update center that contains the plug-in module is:


Take it for a spin and see if you like it. Nicolas is still working on some features, such as code completion... so it is a work in progress!

    great! a much needed addition, it should be paired with some AJAX code generation template to make it even greater...

    Looks awesome! Hope it's finished very soon.
    Just yesterday I was cribbing about the lack of even basic Javascript support in NetBeans. That's a \*huge\* lack in an IDE considering current web development practices.

    Pls, how is the JavaScript editor installed. When I tried, it simply unzipped the files.

    Open a JavaScript file in the IDE 6.0, and you'll automatically have syntax coloring. New in 6.0.

    Actually, you need to install the 'Editing Files' plugin, in the Plugin Manager's "Available Plugins" tab.
