These quotes are the jest of this thread ^^^.
I don’t understand the hostility towards @javasabr project since his approach seems visionary to me.
I don’t know what it would take to adapt it to make it qualify as a NetBeans plugin or eclipse plugin but this just makes sense. His efforts are entirely directed at adding features to JMB which equates to less time spent debugging and customizing the editor. Lot smaller footprint to.
The SDK is awesome, but if a plugin can be and has been developed that does the same thing, regardless of the editor, maybe its worth thinking about.
There’s also something else at play here and this reply from a post about git I read kinda sums it up, even though the SDK is a good tool,
the general idea of why people resist change applies.
Steveko (and a few more people here) are very reasonable in their expectations that in the year 2016 we deserve to have tools with smart, rather than cryptic, user interface. And smart error and warning messages, that respect the user. But the Linux community was always opposite from that. Why?
Well, they’ve spent half of their life learning to use cryptic commands, and now they don’t want them simplified. But why? Here’s why:
1. Now that they have learned everything by heart, it seems easy. They’ve forget their own pain and now don’t understand how others can find it hard to learn. Why wouldn’t you spend a few months on this tool, a few years on that tool, another few years on another tool. After all we know that an average human being lives for 800 years, out of which the youth lasts for the first 750. Right?
2. Now that they’ve learned the tool, they don’t want user interface to change. Because that would mean they would have to learn it again. And feel that pain again… hmmmm, maybe that’s exactly what they deserve.
3. Now that they know how to use the tool, why would newbies have it any easier than they had? Let them go through the same hell. Let everyone forever use crappy UI just because they had to use it. Let in the 24th century Capt. Picard of the Enterprise be blown away by Klingons because the ‘git am’ patch didn’t apply the new photon torpedo launch procedure.
