I've been using Quanta Plus for a couple of years as my primary
used Allaire Homesite for years before when I was mandated a Windows
desktop via corporate policy. I chose Quanta at the time as it was
modelled on Homesite, therefore I did not have to pay a productivity
penalty on changing environments and desktop operating systems.
I like a lot about Quanta Plus, but it has some serious ongoing problems
with memory leaks and processor race conditions - it has gotten a little
better over time, but there are some fundamental coding errors somewhere
- and I do not have the time to go hunting myself to find them. I
basically have to shut down Quanta Plus every day or so to get the
CPU/memory usage back down to expected levels.
I am a power user, and can have ten (or more) open files at once being
edited, so the problems I experience with Quanta Plus may not show up
for all people.
Features I like:
Project management & source code control
Protocol support for remote SSH
Syntax checking, code structure validation
S&R spans over projects
Hand coding of html versus hated GUI "auto" coding
Code formatting to user configurable rules
I use and like vim for command line editing, but the environment just
isn't "IDE" enough to reach the productivity levels I have in Quanta Plus.
What tools are folks using on the list? What may be worth checking out?
Are other people experiencing the same issues I am with Quanta Plus?
