Best editor debugger.

Postby Woltato on Mon Sep 16, 2013 9:58 am

Hi there. hoping to get some advice re development as I'm new to Javascript.

What's the best editor and debugger for developing grease monkey scripts?

I know you can go into Grease monkey menu - Manage User scripts/New User script but this seems like a pretty basic editor with no Autocomplete or debugging facilities. Is there a decent Javascript IDE I can get hold of from somewhere? Preferably a free one.

I am partial to Visual Studio which supports HTML5 and Javascript (mostly intended for Windows 8 dev). You could use that and can get it for free... sort of. I would also recommend looking into Sublime which is free for non-commercial use. It is leagues ahead of Notepad++. I use both daily, they are great, granted I don't do much with HTML/Javascript so might want to experiment with what works best for you.

Sublime Text

Notepad++ gets the job done, but isn't as full fledged as Sublime.
