How to use PDT [message #70121] Mon, 12 May 2008 13:48 Go to next message

I'm use to working with Gedit, Notepad, and vim for website design.
Someone has recommended I check out Eclipse(which I have used before for
Java application design and I enjoyed it) and also use the PDT plugin.
After setting up both, I am still left with the question:

What does PDT do? And if it does something, how do I make PDT do 'it'?

I think the documentation needs a little work on PDT's features, and
examples of how/why those features are useful.

Thanks.

Could you be more specific? What do you find lacking?

I think that the PDT User Guide is quite helpful (available through the
"Help" menu). There are also links inside it so you can submit feedback
directly to the people writing it.
Besides the help, there is the wiki page (http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDT) with
more information.

Alon

I think I've found the issue. When I entered a long php file with code
from the Drupal project, pdt didn't do anything. The outline stayed blank,
and none of the code assists did anything. I've used the user guide(which
has a lot more info than the wiki, or atleast it's a lot easier to find
info in the user guide in the help menu than in the wiki) and double
checked that the auto completion settings are accurate. But I still have
to manually press ctrl+space to get it to pop up. Same with the function
parameter hints.

I'm using Ubuntu hardy, but I downloaded eclipse 3.3 from the eclipse
website rather than use ubuntu's version.

I think the problem was that I didn't manually start a php project. I
imported a project from a svn repo, and added a php file.

How can I tell pdt that a project is a php project?
