I was just reading in SilverStripe Core Development Google group that the internal developers use PhpStorm for development. I was wondering that if anybody from the core team sees this post, if they could share their setup/settings. It'd be really cool if we can get some silverstripe code completion!

I use this and there is no setup required... make a new project select the root folder... wait for it to finish analysing everything and viola... code completion.

(Note same thing is true for NetBeans)

I also like using PHPStorm. It's a great IDE for SilverStripe development.

Some SilverStripe-specific things like the $db variables do not auto-complete. But that isn't too big an issue for me. Otherwise, like swaiba says, it all just works out of the box. Version control integration is great, too.

What file type do you set your .ss templates too?
At the moment I'm using Smarty, but there's no colouring or auto completion.
