- Code Folding
When working in large files it is often helpful to highlight a section of code and collapse it. This feature adds an icon to the left margin allowing you to expand and collapse this section of code as you need it. By default, when you open a file it will collapse CFML and HTML comments and cffunction blocks that span more than three lines.Read More
- Frameworks Explorer
The CF Frameworks Explorer is an additional CFEclipse plugin that helps navigate ColdFusion framework configuration files. You can easily navigate your config files from popular ColdFusion frameworks like Fusebox, Mach-ii, and Model-Glue.Read More
- Problem View
CFEclipse also includes a parser that checks for syntax errors in your ColdFusion document. When problems are found, they are compiled into a list that is easily viewable. Parser problems are also underlined in the text of the document. This makes it much easier to see exactly where the parser found a problem and it is usually relatively easy to spot the cause, such as an extra tag in a nested set of if statements.Read More
Reminiscent of the snippets of Homesite, snippets allow you to create blocks of code that can be entered into your document by double-clicking the snippet from the snippet view. A text trigger can also be assigned to a snippet, allowing you to type the text trigger followed by a keyboard shortcut to add the snippet to your document.Read More
Another popular feature is the ability of the IDE to track comments containing TODO items. Any comment that contains the string "TODO:" is tracked globally and can be viewed in the tasks view. When looking at the tasks view you can double-click on a task and the relevant file will be opened with the cursor on the line where the TODO: marker is located.Read More
