- Integrated Browser
Many Web-centric IDEs will allow you to launch the page you are currently working on into an external browser. CFEclipse allows you to open a browser window inside the IDE itself. This is very similar to what you get in both DreamWeaver and Homesite. The difference in CFEclipse is that you can specify a single root URL for a project and always have that URL loaded when you fire up the browser.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
- 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
- Cross Platform
CFEclipse is truly cross platform. It runs on Windows, Mac and yes, even Linux. Get the same rich, feature packed IDE regardless of your operating system.Read More
