Javascript Intellisense

Working on my Asteroid Runner game again, and I finally found the first IDE/editor that is able to parse the ImpactJS engine effortlessly: IntelliJ IDEA!

After trying just about everything under the sun (had previously used Coda and Komodo on this project hunting for this functionality), I had pretty much given up hope. Now I’m happy again and excited to be able to code even faster than before. It sure beats having to keep a browser window open to hunt through the API documentation for everything. The best part is that I didn’t even have to specify any paths; it did the traversal and indexing all on its own. Major points to Jetbrains for the ease of use here, although it still seemed a little too cumbersome to get the rest of the project set up in the first place.
