I had installed Aptana 1.1 to learn JQuery and hopefully I could get full IntelliSense support for JQuery. Aptana has lots of interesting features though which impressed me. In terms of Intellisense experience, Visual Studio 2008 is indeed better. Maybe I am too used to Visual Studio 2008.
But I realized that the IntelliSense in Aptana was unstable. I couldn't determine when IntelliSense worked and sometimes not. Check the screenshot below and you will know what I mean. I couldn't find $ inside the IntelliSense.
I tried to find solutions online especially the Aptana support forum and yet I was not able to figure out the answer. I made a few assumptions:
a. Maybe I was using the older JQuery package. So I updated to the latest 1.2.6. Still failed.
b. Maybe I installed in the wrong OS (1st time I installed on Windows Server 2003 R2). Then I installed on my other partition Windows Vista Service Pack 1. Not working too.
d. I tried to update the software. But nothing new except extra plugins.
Then what's wrong?
It simply worked just fine. I would expect Aptana 1.1 smart enough to enable JQuery Intellisense for me since I had created JQuery Web Projects. Hope others find it handy here.
