Coyote: Dynamic language support in NetBeans

Groovy, IDE, Java, Tech Add comments

It was great to hear about Coyote:

The goal of this project is to develop a set of NetBeans modules to help developers write code in dynamic languages using the NetBeans IDE. Initially, we are targeting the the Groovy and Jython languages, but we anticipate a common framework allowing support for more languages.

The coyote is a quiet, efficient animal that thrives in urban and rural settings without any particular encouragement, and once established in an ecosystem, is virtually impossible to eradicate.

Getting completion and the like for Groovy is a god-send. This will have me installing NetBeans just for that development, although coyote doesn’t support 4.1 beta (which is actually VERY slick).

I wish this was in IDEA and Eclipse ;)

    I think the newer IDEA EAPs (Irida) have initial support for JavaScript, although I haven’t tried it out yet. (Even better would be Rhino support so refactoring would work in classes and script files…) But once one of the dynamic languages is implemented others can’t be far behind.
