Great html, javascript, and css IDE, here is a quote from the official website:



Aptana is a robust, JavaScript-focused IDE for building dynamic web applications. Highlights include the following features:

* Code Assist on JavaScript, HTML, and CSS languages, including your own JavaScript functions
* Outliner that gives a snapshot view of your JavaScript, HTML, and CSS code structure
* Error and warning notification for your code
* Support for Aptana UI customization and extensions
* Cross-platform support
* Free and open source. (Source available soon)


Its open-source (although its code was not released yet), and it's multi platform, Windows, Linux, Mac, and it has a plugin which supports integration with eclipse.

I think it worths trying.

Looks very nice. When can we expect this one in the repos or at least .deb?

I'm downloading it right now...

If it's up to scratch I'll be replacing dreamweaver with it at work.

*fingers crossed*

Damn IT director put the block on me getting the company to switch from windross to Ubuntu :(

I tried installing from their .bin file but got this:

Thats what I did and.... well I've had it open for about 2 days

weird, I didn't find it in the repos.

I however had an eclipse installation and could install aptana as a plugin. Worked fine I think.

Thats because it ain't in the repos but eclipse is and installing aptana as a n eclipse plug in will give you the same functions plus more.

This is what I had to do to get the download of Aptana to work.

First I chmod'd the file to give it execute permissions


chmod +x Aptana_IDE_Setup.bin

Then I executed it


./Aptana_IDE_Setup.bin

It ran some stuff and then the GUI installer started. You specify the install location and it does it's stuff. Once it was complete I had to install the SWT library from the repository.


sudo aptitude install libswt3.1-gtk-java

Then I created a little shell script to start Aptana up since it needs an environment variable set.



#/usr/bin
export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/mozilla
~/bin/Aptana/aptana


I named that file aptana and put it right in ~/bin/. Ofcourse that's a directory that I had created previously and it's where I installed aptana at. I might have already had some prerequisite dependancies installed since I didn't get a problem on the initial installer.

Thanks snowpalmer, I was trying to figure out a way to have the mozilla_five_home variable permanently set to the path instead of just for the terminal session. Being a noob i didn't even think of just putting it into the shell script.

Aptana so far seems to be a nice IDE and lets see where it goes.

Aptana is still at version 0.31 beta.. I don't think we could find it in the official repos since it's stable..
But in a custom user repos.. why not ?

Tried the repo, but it didn't work correctly with me.

Anyone knows any other repo ?? Or another package ??

On the project view, when I click to open a new file, it shows the aptana spash screen again and nothing happens .. weird ...
