Today I like to blog about some new plugins from another very productive plugin author. All of them were created by junichi11, who created more than 15 plugins, which all are freely available at the NetBeans plugin portal. Many of them are PHP-related, so if you are a PHP developer you are certainly using one of his plugins already.
a) Github issues plugin
This plugin integrates issues from your github repositories into the tasks view of NetBeans. From within NB you can view, edit and create issues. And much more…
BTW if you are using Backlog for tracking your issues, then you can also use https://github.com/junichi11/netbeans-backlog-plugin
b) Color preview plugin
This plugin shows color for hexadecimal encoded colors (f.e. #FF0045) in the left sidebar of the editor. This feature is not new to IDEs, but it is now finally available for NetBeans. Enable this feature via “View->Show Colors” and the colors in CSS files will be visualized. It is configurable and thus not limited to CSS.
The plugins are signed and this way they can be installed directly from your IDE (Tools->Plugins->Available Plugins). You can also download them from their github pages or from http://plugins.netbeans.org and install them manually
Do not hesitate to post feedback or file issues at the respective github pages of the plugins. junichi11 is a friendly one and very responsive! Thank you for the good work junichi11!
