NetBeans shortcuts

Filed under: Programming — Tags: , , , — Mihai @ 11:13 pm

As I said before, I love using NetBeans, I am using version 6.0 on Ubuntu 7.10 and can’t wait for 6.1. I wanted to share a small list of what makes me more efficient:

  • Ctrl+Shift+O – Go to file
    It’s a lot faster to navigate than using the Projects pane. It also shows first the files from the current project.
  • Ctrl+Shift+A – Switch between Action and View
    It let’s you navigate very easily when working on a controller
  • Alt+Shift+F – Format
    It formats your code, very useful after pasting some code to redo the indenting
  • Code templates
    You can view and edit the templates in Tools->Options->Editor->Code Templates

What’s your favourite NetBeans shortcut or feature ? Are you using the default theme ?

NetBeans 6.0

Filed under: Programming, Ruby on Rails — Tags: , , — Mihai @ 10:42 pm

NetBeans 6.0 is now my preferred IDE, it is a great IDE for Ruby and RoR development. It’s very light, having only 19MB (but you also need JDK).

NetBeans Ruby

You can quickly get started, NetBeans comes with JRuby, gems and Rails so you can quickly jump to coding and do not bother with installing Ruby, RoR and dependencies. On the NetBeans website there is a lot of documentation about Ruby support including videos. You can also contribute documentation and plugins.
