I discovered few weeks ago an interesting tool to develop Magento modules with Eclipse PDT or Zend Studio: the Magento Eclpise plugin. I use it personnaly with Zend Studio 8 and it works pretty well, so we are going to see the different feature you can get from this module. With this module you can:
- Find two wizards to help you to extend or create Magento modules
- Code completion for core class or method even when you use Mage::getModel() or Mage::getSingleton() and so on.
