Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


Eclipse rocks my socks and covers my ass

I just had my butt saved massively by Eclipse.

I’m not even using it with SVN/CVS but local versioning fixed an accidental overwrite. Best. App. Ever. It just secured its place as my markup development tool of choice. I used to be ambivalent about it where there wasn’t any PHP (using the excellent PHP Eclipse plugin) involved, because of lack of syntax highlighting and whatever else (this can be remedied very quickly using the Eclipse Web Standard Tools (WST) subproject, but it isn’t installed by default), but for everything else it offers, and for the inevitable transition into a programming language once projects reach a certain stage, it’s so worth using earlier in the process anyway.
