XML Editor for Eclipse ↩
I just installed the Eclipse Web Tools Project stuff. It's not like I was doing web development, but these tools include something I've been looking for for ages:
### A decent XML Editor
Finally. I tried about 8 different tools, open source and commercial alike. All of them sucked in one or more ways - some we're merely text editors with highlighting, a lot were simply defunct, and something that not a single one got right was simple editing (proper indentation, proper cursor placement, etc.). The only one that was tolerable was the <oXygen/> editor, but well over $1000 * is a lot too much if your just using the XML editor.
It's still a little bit strange to install a full blown web development environment just to get something as basic as an XML editor (shouldn't this be provided by the editing platform by default?), but whatever.
* Update: I stand corrected, <oXygen/> is indeed a lot cheaper. Must have confused it with some other tool. Anyways judging from the first glimpse I prefer the WTP XML Editor over <oXygen/>, mainly because editing seems smoother.
