NetBeans simplified out-of-the-box experience is really nice and intuitive. That’s why it continues to be my favourite IDE!
This morning started a new Coffee on Couchbase webinar series. It will build a NetBeans plugin for Couchbase. This multi-part webinar series is going to be a discussion with Geertjan Wielenga (@GeertjanW, my esteemed friend and NetBeans PM) and Eben Haber (@ebenhaber, Couchbase Tooling Architect).
As part of this series, you’ll also learn how to build a NetBeans plugin from scratch and learn the awesomeness behind NetBeans platform.
The recording from part 1 is now available:
Part 1 covers:
- GitHub repository for the plugin
- Started a new NetBeans plugin – discussed Ant vs Maven approach for starting a plugin
- Couchbase node configured in NetBeans
All the code is evolving at: github.com/arun-gupta/couchbase-netbeans-plugin.
For now, the plugin can be built and reloaded in a new or current instance of NetBeans. You’ll see:
NBMs will be released going further.
Let us know by filing bugs on features that you’d like to see in this plugin.
