First screenshots of alfa version of Prado Support
By Petr on Oct 16, 2008
Today I want to show a few screenshots of Prado support in NetBeans. At the beginning I want to answer question "Why are you creating Prado support when Symfony had much more votes?". I started to work on Prado support a few weeks before we anounced the voting. The main reason why I started to work on this was that I need to create a prototype of a framework support to recognize, what changes we need to do in our infrastructure to write a framework suport, which API's are sufficient, which has to be extended or created, what is missing etc. Basically it's proof of concept. I concentrate on editor area, which I think is the most important. At the time when I started to think about this by chance few people from Prado comunity wrote same requests to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. Due luck of time, I'm not able to work on this regularly, it's my "midnight" project - I work on this usually from 11 pm to 2 am once or twice a week.
The first screenshot shows that page files are recognized as a special type files. Has different icon then php files, syntactic and semantic coloring works for php parts, template control, folding, navigator, basically everything should work as you know for php files.
The code completion for template control arguments.
The code completion for Prado components.
The code completion for component attributes.
Next two screenshots shows code completion for php in the page files.
And the last screenshot shows errors annotation from php code.
I need to work more to get the support to be ready to publish first alpha and I hope it will be soon.
