Been trying to find a free (as in beer) development environment that is easy to use and configure with sensible defaults.

Just downloaded Aptana 3 and after 2 days use. We have a winner.

Things I like:

  • Downloaded both Windows and Linux clients – Install was easy on both
  • There is a menu item Source ==> format. And I have successfully reformatted. html, javascript and xml with no dramas
  • There is a jQuery plugin installed by clicking Commands ==> Bundle Development ==> Install Bundle.
  • Ease of use


  • No native PERL plugin
