ShiftEdit is a new online IDE built around ExtJS and Mozilla Skywriter.
Philosophy behind the project:
“The web-based IDE is one of the final frontiers of apps ported to the web. I would like to be able to develop from any computer or operating system and have the same experience without having to install software or create site definitions.” – Adam Jimenez
These are some of the main features:
The editor component is based on Mozilla’s Bespin. It has support for:
- Syntax highlighing for HTML/ CSS/ JS and PHP
- Block tabbing
- Undo/ Redo
- Line Numbers
- Jump to line
- + It’s very fast
There is a built-in FTP explorer which support FTP and SFTP.
You can create/ rename/ delete files and folders. You can also set file permissions.
Find and replace works across current or all open files. You can do text searches or regular expression searches.
File revisions are stored whenever you save a file. You can then look back through past revisions and view a diff comparison.
You can then restore to an earlier version. Very useful if you or a colleague breaks something!
