Re: quotes

@behappy Unfortunately, no :(

quotes

Is it possible to configure quotes type (double or single)?
For example
span.more turns into
1. <span> class="more"</span> (double quotes)
2. <span> class='more'</span> (single quotes)

Re: netbeans 8.0.2 ubuntu 14

@talsibo The plug-in does not use the network in any way, so it should not interfere with your SFTP. What was affected exactly? An SFTP plugin for NetBeans?
Posted by lorenzos on Jul 10, 2015
  

netbeans 8.0.2 ubuntu 14

I installed this plugin after that the sftp connection was failed, so I removed the plugin and sftp connection was ok.

It is a bit scary that this plugin cause remote connection issues and crushes I would not recommend to install it.

Not highlighting the start end end braces

I noticed that it didn’t highlight the start end braces () when coding. Netbeans normally highlight the braces

div#page>(div#header>ul#nav>li*4>a)+(div#page>(h1>span)+p*2)+div#footer

any suggestions

it works in Netbeans 8

Just tried now (simple test) in NetBeans IDE 8.0 (Build 201403101706) and it works.
Thanks for this great job!

Re: netbeans 8 support

I didn't tested it yet, I will ASAP. In the meantime you can just try to install it and see if it works.

netbeans 8 support

is this plugins compatible with netbeans latest version?
Posted by keda87 on Apr 04, 2014
  

awesome!

It saves my time and concentration a lot.
But I've seen that for example if you write tr>td* and forget to write the number, when you hit the shortcut to expand, it freezes NetBeans.
Anyway, thanks for this great plugin!

Still using Zen Coding

I tried using Emmet, but it has issues. All too often, it will lock up NB entirely; causing me to have to terminate it externally, since it won't close. Also, for some odd reason, it won't wrap stuff with BLOCKQUOTE. The dialog vanishes, and nothing happens. This does everything I really need; but Emmet is very promising, once it's more stable in NB. It will have some newer syntax I don't use much (yet?); but the possibility of customizing the attributes tags are created with is something I would like, sooner or later. It also has the ability to jump to insertion points in the produced markup by hitting TAB or ENTER.

Re: Doesn't expand XSLT

Hi Andy. I wish I can help you, and I will be happy to see that "code hacking", but I can't drop you an email because I cannot see your email address here (you can get mine on my GitHub page, https://github.com/lorenzos/ ).

Anyway, Zen Coding author Sergey Chikuyonok has renewed and renamed his creation as "Emmet", and you should try his release:
http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/48315/

Maybe that "updated" version work as you expect.

Doesn't expand XSLT

Hi,

In Eclipse you can expand xslt, for example:

Input:

choose+ (then Ctrl+Shift+N)

Output:

< xsl:choose>
< xsl:when test="">< /xsl:when>
< xsl:otherwise>< /xsl:otherwise>
< /xsl:choose>

This does not seem to work in the Netbeans version... this was by far one of the best features of Zen coding IMO. Can you please fix it!?

p.s. - I hacked the code on the last version of this to get this working, but I don't want to have to keep rehacking on every update going forward so would prefer it if it was just fixed of course... Thanks :o)

If you want me to show what lines I updated to get it working drop me an email. (I am not 100% certain what I did was overall the correct thing to do though so I think it will require some additional work your end, in any case)

Thanks again

Andy

Tested now with latest 7.2.1. No errors are showed and plugin seems to work correctly.
