    Can I use an IDE for WebGL development?

    Hello Everyone,

    Currently only ever used NetBeans and Eclipse to program in Java, Javascript and JOGL.

    Recently been trying to get to grips with WebGL and I am finding that I make a lot of silly mistakes (Semi-colon errors, mispellings etc.) when using notepad++ as my text editor.

    Are there any better text editors or IDEs I could use to help me write code which will work. Failing that, all tips are welcome!

    Thanks a lot.

    There is a javascript plugin ( http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jsdt/ ) for eclipse that is better than notepad. It has some keyword highlighting and will help you detect improper () and {} closures. It also has some warning for missing semicolons. Put your javascript code in .js files which you can include in your html with a line like

    <script type="text/javascript" src="mycode.js"></script>

    Spelling errors are always a problem in javascript since it will regard them as new elements or variables instead of the variable or element you mistyped.
