    Default Javascript script development on openSUSE

    I need to develop and modify some js scripts for an application.

    Any experience out there js shells or IDEs that I should try, for entry, editing and testing purposes?

    Thanks in advance

    If you're fairly proficient at js but just need some highlighting and minimal syntax support, you can install some vim extensions that do stuff like highlight and display/verify opening/closing brackets. Very fast and cool.

    If you're at an intermediate level, KDE's Konsole will do some automatic highlighting for you providing functionality through menus.

    If you need plenty of auto-completion support and structural guidance, various full-blown IDE almost certainly provide js support, various free and paid (Web Storm for instance is free for open source use but IIRC only about $50(or more?) for personal use.

    You may also want to make choices based on any frameworks which may be implemented.

    Plenty to choose from for many budgets, needs and levels of expertise.

    Kate rather than Konsole - it recently came top of a LinuxVoice survey which left out Vim and Emacs on principle.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    For now, searching the web for code snippets then cut and paste editing with kwrite is getting the job done for me.
    I am modifying processing scripts in a CAD program.
