I am sure the problem I have is the very most basic.
I’m currently using Aptana Studio, but have used a bundle of different editors and they all seem much the same. I’m currently using Aptana only because there’s a good tutorial on Lynda that I can refer to and I just don’t have the time to fully immerse myself in these things.
I use Sass (which is hopefully irrelevant to this issue). My issue is this:
I seem to spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to work out why my CSS isn’t working and 9/10 times it turns out to be some stupid spelling mistake. An example the other day – I had text-align: justified; Spent ages trying to work out what was going wrong, when it’s ‘justify’ not ‘justified’!! There must be some simple way of having errors like this highlighted. I’m sure it’s a simple solution but I’ve yet to find it.
Thanks for the feedback. I know CSS back to front, upside down and inside out – but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m human and make typos. The preprocessor does throw an error if you say – have an extra bracket or omit a bracket but compiles fine for the example I gave above.
PS I’ve been using SASS for about 4 months now – it’s the best
Thanks guys. I’ve come up with this solution – I’ve made a few changes to the theme in the preferences and I now have different parts of the syntax showing in different colours. So if I happen to type ‘pading-right’ instead of ‘padding-right’ it shows in a blatantly different colour.
