Joomla! Support

To get an access to Joomla! support features you should install Joomla! Support plugin, which is available also from Settings-> Plugins. 

Initial Joomla! support currently includes:

  • {{JHTML::_($argument)}} support
  •  Ability to create Joomla extension as a new project with predefined stubs, that can be adjusted in Settings->File and Code Templates
  •  Joomla! code style that can be selected in Settings->Code Style->PHP->Set from..
  •  Joomla! is detected when you open a Joomla! module/plugin/extension or Joomla! root folder. You will be automatically suggested to adjust your include path and code style.

It’s just the beginning, and we have other ideas of what we’re going to support next. Also your feedback and suggestions are very welcome!
