Aptana IDE

Recently, I attended GDG meet in Chandigarh and 2nd time heard about Aptana IDE. So decided to download and use the same. Downloaded Aptana Studio 3.4.2 from here, installed and run it on my machine. First screen would look like this.

Aptana Studio 3.4.0 is an open source Web development IDE being used by lot of developers across world. This powerful tool is having features like intellisense, integrated debugger and good version control system that gives you the precision control to create the applications you need without wasting time or running multiple programs simultaneously.

Aptana Studio 3.4.0 makes it easy to develop, test, debug and publish your applications within a single environment. If you code in PHP, Python , HTML, CSS, Ruby, Javascript or other languages, Aptana is what you need for top-quality results. If you need to move back and forth between Windows and Mac OS, Aptana makes it happen.

If you have used Netbeans or Eclipse before in development, then you will not feel much difference among them in their appearance. It suits well to Eclipse users. 

Following are the features of Aptana IDE :

1)  Intellisense (Code Assistance) is the biggest feature of Aptana. While editing, Code 
     Assist not only displays a list of matching tags, but it also includes graphical information 
     about the level of support for each element in the major web browsers.

2)  Git implementation is too easy using Aptana. It supports FTP as well.

3)  Integrated Debugger is another great feature in Aptana. There is a fully integrated Ruby & Rails debugger that has all of the features that you would expect from a professional grade product, including the ability to set breakpoints, inspect variables, control execution, etc…Surprisingly weaker is JavaScript debugging.

4)  Aptana Studio is available for all major operating systems (Windows/ Mac OS/ Linux).

5)  It gives you Linux like Console on Windows and can run git commands from Terminal.

So overall, it’s a great open source web development IDE to work with. At least give a try to it.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy Programming :)
