Aptana, the purported “Dreamweaver killer”, doesn’t cease to amaze me. Yahoo! UI Blog guys posted a screencast with Aptana’s founder, Paul Colton, giving a run-down on Aptana’s “IntelliSense” and JavaScript debugging capabilities.

Check out also their screencast archive.

Wow! Most impressive and immediately part of my development environment. I'm yet to explore much past the JavaScript side of things, but it's all good so far.

Aptana stand-alone (Eclipse Shell) and the Aptana Eclipse Plug-In is very impressive and powerful. The debugger and multi-file JavaScript intellisense (from another .js file and html files) alone are golden. And can you guess the cost? Nothing! Nada! Free!

I couldn't make Aptana work with *.aspx loaded from external IIS. See this thread for details
