I have developed a few NetBeans modules that add support for Thinlet xml files in the IDE. Read this entry for more information.
Module development for NetBeans is something I've always been interested in, but never had the time to do. This time, however, I was able to; the ThinNB project at java.net adds Thinlet support for the NetBeans IDE.
From the ThinNB project home page , "ThinNB is actually two things: an umbrella project for the ThinNB family of NetBeans modules and also the module responsible for installing the ThinNB Update Center in the IDE." It recognizes Thinlet xml files, adds a new template for a xml file with a
panel as it root node, allow files to be previewed inside the IDE, adds support to an embedded visual editor - a modified version of ThinG - and also installs an Update Center in the IDE so it is possible to obtain new releases of the modules in a more natural way.
You can go to the home page to see some screenshots, get information about its features and also read the download and installation instructions. Enjoy it!
