Web development software and Zikula...  Bottom

Go to page 1 - 2 [+1]:

  • Hi all...

    For the longest time I used Dreamweaver and am now up to CS4 on my mac but am reaching the point of no return as the software is a pain to use and as bloated as they come... not to mention it's darn ugly and having shelled out the $ for a mac I want everything to be pretty!! ;)

    I have played around with Panic's Coda and MacRabbit's Espresso though I haven't really given them a full run...

    I was curious as to what software y'all use for working with Zikula...?

    Further, I know at one point there was a Smarty plugin for Dreamweaver and there currently is one for Espresso (I'm not sure about Coda) but what about a pnRender plugin specifically for Zikula...

    I know that Coda has a few plugins for Drupal that are pretty neat... Do we have anything like that and if not is anyone interested in working together to make one... I for one would love to streamline pnRender tags... typing " < ! - - [ ] - ->" over and over is a pain...

  • I use Zend Studio - both the standalone v5.5 and newer Eclipse based v6.x. I am definitely more of a coder than designer. I think the Eclipse version has lots of potential but I haven't tuned it yet, for example it considers all the Smarty tags in the templates badly formed. But it's subversion integration is excellent, and I think there are WYSIWYG eclipse plugins that would make template design more like Dreamweaver (although I've never tried it). You really can't beat having a debugger, especially when working with something like Pagesetter where it's helpful to know how it actually works. Just step through the code as it executes...

    There is a free one called PDT (http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/) that I think is also produced by Zend as a scaled down open source version. I haven't tried it, but I might go that route in the future just because it's open source.
  • Hi, at home on the mac I'm mostly using BBEdit icon_smile with the remote editing facilities through ftp I can edit and check on my test server directly. No wysiwyg tool actually.
    On office PC I use Notepad++ most of the time.

    Coda and Espresso are pretty it seems icon_wink
    For graphics work I use photoshop and sometimes Gimp

  • Same as Bronto: Zend Studio 6.1.2 (extended with Subversive and J2EE), and Zend Server CE locally installed for it's completeness (integrated Oracle support). I was working with (and very used to) Zend Studio 5.5 also, but now I work with Eclipse and are getting familiar with it, it definately is worth the struggle I had.

  • I use Texturizer. It is no longer supported or developed but it's pretty cool. It basically notepad with syntax highlighting.

    I abhor WYSIWYG editors.
  • I used BBedit on my Mac, but now that I've switched back, I use Notepad++
  • I have made (spring 2008) some DW CS3 extensions (code coloring, ...) for zikula. For me, very useful.
    See : http://www.e-media-management.com/DwForPN8/

    I use them everyday for www.classissima.com (zk1.1.1 / DW)

  • PSPad works great for me and includes a Smarty highlighter.
  • I used to use Dreamweaver as well, also upgraded to Mac this year (yes Mr. HarryZ you were right all along) as well! I use Aptana now and it is great, works very well.

    FYI we are changing to {} tags in Zikula 2.x

    Note that all existing modules will continue working as they use pnRender. In 2.0 this is a subclass of Renderer and keeps the special delimiters for backwards compatibility. As soon as the code uses Renderer directly (= gets upgraded to the 2.0 style), the { } tags are expected.

    I like right click.


    Get a two button mouse for the Mac and click away.
