Eclipse CSS Editor

Started searching around for a good CSS editor plugin for Eclipse. I've used Aptana in the past, but was very disappointed. Mostly due to Aptana's intrusive takeover of my Eclipse IDE. I wanted something simple that provided some code highlighting.

Enter Project Amateras. An Eclipse based HTML editor. Has all the usual charactaristics of a good code editor:

  • HTML/CSS/Javascript code assist
  • Code highlighting
  • Code folding

Very nice and FREE plugin.

Blueprint CSS rocks!

I'm a huge fan of the Blueprint CSS framework. I've used it on two projects now and I'm really impressed. I really like the grid based layout and the cross-browser baseline provided by the reset.css file. There are some limitations/drawbacks. I've found that placing elements with pixel precision can be a pain, but not impossible. Also forgetting to setup the column classes correctly can result in some hard to find visual bugs. These problems are minor when compared to the benefits I've gained from using this framework.

Another CSS Framework

Here is another CSS framework. I'm going to have to try one of these out soon.

Elements CSS Framework

Blueprint CSS.

Google never ceases to amaze me. Check out this very cool CSS framework:
