Support for Smarty in standard distribution

Hi all, I would like to announce good message for developers who are using Smarty as a template engine for PHP. Smarty support for NetBeans IDE was introduced more than year ago when it became available through Plugin Portal UC and since NetBeans IDE 7.1 it will be part of standard distribution.

In addition I'm attaching list of last features which weren't introduced in our Smarty blogposts yet.

List of last improvements:

  • Performance improvements in project opening
  • Basic code completion for Smarty tags and its attributes
  • Multiview with local history tab like in other standard editors of NetBeans IDE 7.1
  • Adjustable scanning depth for Smarty templates in PHP projects
  • Experimental support for templates formatting

All Smarty issues please report newly to PHP -> Smarty category. Thanks.

That's great news. I was a little bit concerned about it's development as a community plugin as it seemed to be abandoned.

I've worked with the Smarty development team on bringing improvements to the Smarty 3.1 code basis to ease the work with Smarty PHP classes in Netbeans for developers. So together with the stable release of Smarty 3.1 yesterday, native support for Smarty templates in Netbeans 7.1 is the best news of the day. Thanks! You have done a great job.

Definitely going to test this release.

It's great that smarty support is much better, but i've got a question about Netbeans 7.1
Will there be support for PHP 5.4.x ?

What about the template language Twig (used by Symfony)? Any plans to include that as well?

Sorry, but not. PHP 5.4.x will not be supported in NetBeans 7.1.

About the Twig - not sure for now. It will depend on results of planning for next NetBeans release which could happen in one or two months.
