I’m always on a lookout for new tools that would make my developer-life easier. One of the more central items to that end is the programming editor or an IDE. I’ve been using UltraEdit for several years, and I do like it — a text editor doesn’t get much better than that. But UltraEdit’s intellisense is limited, and it doesn’t really come with a usable snippets functionality. I tried UltraEdit Studio, and while it adds some features to vanilla UltraEdit, I don’t find myself using much of its additional functionality.
Meanwhile, I tried OverZone’s Source Code Library, but as far as I can tell the code snippets stored in it cannot contain tabs that would translate to tab characters in the target editor or IDE – instead any entered tabs are translated into spaces. Not good.
If you know of a good snippet library application, eclipse extension for the features I’m looking for, or other IDE/editor worth taking a look, please let me know!
