Zen Coding with NetBeans

I have recently came up with amazing NetBeans plugin that helps you incredibly speed up your development speed. TextMate users were happy having this kind functionality for a long time now, however now you can download from GitHub and try it on your NetBeans IDE too.

If you are not familiar with Zen Coding I suggest watching these two movies below. The first one shows capabilities of Zen coding and the second one represents mentioned plugin for NetBeans.

Zen Coding v0.5 from Sergey Chikuyonok on Vimeo.

Zen Coding with Netbeans from Ned Fenstermacher on Vimeo.

This tutorial will show you how to setup Netbeans 6.8 with Zen Coding on Windows and show the basics of how to use it.

And if you want to know more about this, you can read a great SmashingMagazine post about Zen Coding.
