Better syntax highlighting and more modularity
Browser-based IDE Eclipse Orion gets 0.4 release
The Eclipse Foundation has announced
the release of version 0.4 of Orion, its browser-based IDE for web
development. The first major release for four months, 0.4 contains
significant modifications to the project’s UI, as well as improved
HTML and CSS validation, syntax highlighting using CodeMirror and better integration with
external resources such as GitHub.
“Overall, the look and feel of the UI has been crafted to reduce the amount of tree style views in favour of a flat representation,” reads the release announcement. “There was also a significant amount of trimming and customization done to give more real-estate to the task at hand.”
Head over to the Eclipse Orion homepage to download a local copy or try out a embedded demo version. Orion may not be quitre as pretty as some web-based editors (we’re looking fondly at you, Tumblr HTML pad), but it’s a lot more fleshed out, and stands a real chance of changing the way live web development is done.
