I'm currently putting together a fairly complex database in SilverStripe for a fairly complex ecommerce site. I've been using the NetBeans IDE for a lot of projects and though I'd give it a try for this.
While it's useful in many respects, the code completion doesn't work as SilverStripe doesn't explicitly include files, and the excellent datamodel can't be recreated automatically from ER tools or even SQL text files.
Add to that I don't have any editor that syntax highlights .ss files and suddenly I'm thinking of making a useful dedicated tool for all this (well not the current project of course, but future endeavours).
Is there any particularly good IDE or set of tools people use for SilverStripe sites?
If I was to make something it'd almost certainly be based on the Netbeans platform and looking at my current workload it'd almost certainly take years to become anything useful.
But if there is any interest I'd be happy to hear ideas, and I'll post back here (in a few months!) and let you all know how its getting on.
