Projects / Spindle Plugin

Spindle Plugin

Spindle is a plugin for the Eclipse Platform that provides excellent IDE support for Web apps developed using the Tapestry framework. It includes wizards for creating applications and application components. Editors for applications, libraries, pages, components, and templates, all with popup help, syntax completion, and "as you type validation" are included. A project build process catches and marks almost every runtime Tapestry error before you deploy your application.

Command completion was added in the HTML and XML editors along with pop-up help for components and parameters. Users get validations of their HTML and XML files as part of the project build (that is, on every save). It is now also easier for users to run their Web apps using Jetty.
