    Re: SS Files in Dreamweaver CS4 Link to this post

    @kaloschke, Unfortunately I don't get syntax highlighting in SS files, I just meant within my PHP Classes. Aptana does read my open SS files and provides any element ID's and Classes to the CSS code completion, which I thought was a nice touch.

    I always thought Netbeans was for Java. Is there a PHP plugin or something? As it seems so popular I would be tempted to try it, but does it have:

    * Integrated SVN
    * Synchronization with remote servers
    * Code completion that easily detects all classes in your project

    If the answer is yes I will happily give it a go

    I discovered yesterday how to get aptana to treat .ss files as html:

    Windows -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> File Associations...

    Under 'File Types' select the 'Add' Button. Type *.ss
    Then, underneath, in 'Associated Editors', choose an editor.

    You can also use the same process (more or less) to let you edit .ss files as XML. Which is quite usefull when you are working with flash front ends .

    Yes, there is even a version of the program configured specifically for working in PHP.

    does it have:
    * Integrated SVN

    And Mercurial, and Git, and CVS, and I'm not sure what else.

    * Synchronization with remote servers
    http://blogs.sun.com/netbeansphp/entry/remote_synchronization
    Seems so.

    * Code completion that easily detects all classes in your project
    Yes and I would never want to work without this feature again.

    Also NetBeans scans all your code so you can Ctrl+click on any class, member, method, etc you use and it takes you to the declaration AND the code hinting will show the args/docs. Many IDEs do this but few do it so seamlessly with both custom classes as well as built in PHP functions.

    Don't forget snappy built in SQL database browser/querying also.

    I wrote up how I use rsync in Netbeans to automatically sync files remotely on the wiki: http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tools:netbeans

    Thanks "Pat jnr", your solutions worked perfectly for me on my mac! It was really annoying me having to change the extension of ss files to html each time I wanted to edit them in dreamweaver!

    There is a trick!
    The instructions that PatJr described may work for some users but there are two different files that Dreamweaver can pickup.

    Using Mac
    Dreamweaver first looks for the Extensions.txt file in hard disk:\Users/username/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS4/Configuration so this is the actual location you need to edit

    This help article from Adobe is OK and could help you if there are any hiccups.
