Summary CFEclipse - a ColdFusion plugin for the Eclipse IDE
Category construction
License Other OSI-certified license

CFEclipse is a feature-rich CFML (ColdFusion Markup Language) plugin for Eclipse. This plugin adds syntax highlighting, code insight, a content outline, code problem finding, and a lot more for CF developers. It also provides code highlighting for HTML, XML and for inline CSS and Javascript, plus code insight for HTML 4.01, and a snippet (code fragment) feature.

CFML is a simple, yet powerful server side scripting language, made popular through Macromedia's ColdFusion Server and further supported by New Atlanta's BlueDragon servers.

Releases / Installation

Please see the CFEclipse home page for release and installation information.


The goal of this project is to create the best environment for writing CFML code. You won't see any WYSIWYG editing, and you won't see a lot of wizards. We intend to make the best CFML editor for CFML coders.
