Go to "Tools-Plugins-Available Plugins" and try to search for HTML5 FunPack plugin. You will not find it. But you will find CheatSheets.

Install CheatSheets, restart NB and download HTML FunPack (nbm file) from here with the link above (

Then go to "Tools-Plugins-Downloaded-Add Plugins" and try install HTML5 FunPack manually. You will get an error message like this: "Plugin "CheatsSheets" is already installed."

I think it's because HTML5 FunPack includes a wrong URL. You can see that, when you deinstall CheatSheets again and then try to install HTML5 FunPack with the nbm file as described. On the right side of the "Tools-Plugins-Downloaded-Add Plugins" page you see the the wrong Hompage:

After you installed HTML5 FunPack with the nbm file, try to search for CheatSheets in the "Tools-Plugins-Available Plugins" section. Now you will not find it. So it seems not possible to install both plugins.

Update 12.06.2016
Nothing changed.

Don't really understand, drop me a mail with details.

-Silver- is absolutely right

His comment is 100% correct. In the Netbeans plugin manager you will find Cheat Sheets, but not HTML5 Fun Pack.

When I use the Download Link above ( I was able to install HTML5 Fun Pack correctly, but the describtion says:

Version: 1.0
Autor: Geertjan Wielenga (
Datum: 08.11.15
Quelle: 1447022857_HTML5FunPack-1.0-SNAPSHOT.nbm

The Homepage Link is wrong. Maybe that's the reason for the other problem too?

Works fine

Nope, it works fine. I clicked the Download button on this page and now I have exactly what is described -- new HTML5 code snippets in the HTML Palette. Drop me a mail at if you're still stuck.

Could you check the uploaded file?

Hi geertjan,
Could you check the package that you uploaded? I tried to download it but the nbm file seems to contain cheatSheets and not HTML5 Fun Pack.
Furthermore I didn't find it in the Netbeans plugin manager.
Thanks and best regards,

How to open the Component Palette...

You're not able to open an HTML file? Or are you unable to figure out how to open the Component Palette? To open an HTML file, double-click on it. The Component Palette should then open automatically unless you have previously closed it. If it does not open automatically, press Ctrl-Shift-8 or go to Window | IDE Tools | Palette.

How do you get started.

Downloaded and installed plugin and can not figure out how to get palette windows open.

RE: Cross browser tags?

Good idea, will do, thanks. (Or better still, go here and add it yourself, would be a great contribution.)
Posted by geertjan on Jun 10, 2015

Cross browser tags?

Please add some tooltips on each component in the palette indicating the browsers that support this element, or a warning about the browsers that don't support it.
Thanks for the good effort.
