JavaScript IDE: The Grail Nobody Quests For?

29-Jul-05 12:40 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments
Why is it there’s virtually nothing in the way of reasonably-priced, accessible and/or good, vendor-supported JavaScript development software?  I mean there’s a few projeccts on Sourceforge, yes – and yes there’s Venkman (Mozilla) and some supporting tools in Firefox, but were are all the really good, industry-standard tools?
Is it really the case here, in 2005 (some 10 years after the introduction of web development as an industry) there’s nothing solid out there?
Even if we look at some of the market leading tools for Internet application development, like Visual Studio 2003…we’re still seeing some pretty poor performance.  I can easily persuade VS2K3 to crash routinely invoking the client-side scripting and when it does work, I can’t say the speed is optimum.
Maybe there’s an opportunity for someone out there.  I’m busy trying to debug JavaSscript code and explain to clients why anytime I enter a JScript development cycle it takes twice as long to get things done.
