Converting your IDE into a powerful JetPack machine

I just started a project at GitHub to add a command bundle for my Aptana IDE (it’s Eclipse based) for Mozilla JetPack.

Right now it’s just a skeleton and contains only ‘cfx – run’ command, but the main idea is to create bunch of snipplets and to add more command in near future for rapid JetPack development.

Here are some screenshots:

Here is how the menu looks like:

Let’s see it in action:

You can use the shortcut also (CTRL +R)

If you want to download it or if you want to join this interesting project, please visit GitHub or drop me a line here.

To see it with good quality, click Right button – and select ‘View Video’ or select “Full screen”

This video shows what happens after ‘CTRL + R’ combination (see above). The automation is real :)

I care about privacy, ethical design, and freedom in many aspects. I spend 20+ years working as a web developer and architect, analyst, manager, and product owner/manager in different environments, several countries, and multiple software industries like Healthcare and Hospitality. I wore many hats, and I use the knowledge gathered to optimize the flow of value across complex systems.

    Looks very nice and helpful. the question that you have to source bin/activate to Aptana’s console too, but this is not such a big deal.

    Would this be easy to make into a BlueGriffon extension?
