Realtime syntax debugging and bracket closing

23 Aug 2010

We've added some exciting new features to ShiftEdit.

Realtime syntax error checking

When working on a PHP or JavaScript file the script is checked for syntax errors as you type. If an error is found the error message is displayed above the code editor. You can also click the line number in the error message to be taken straight to the broken line. This is an excellent tool for debugging and is a great time-saver during development.

Bracket closing

In PHP and JS files brackets are now automatically closed as you type. This is a useful time-saver and works for normal, square and curly brackets.

Tag closing

When you close an opening HTML tag the closing tag is automatically appended. This is another time-saver.

All of these features can be disabled via the preferences window if they are not your cup of tea. (Edit->Preferences)
