Have you ever wondered how you could change your Netbean IDE Template files? It’s actually quite easy! This will be post one of two. This first post will go over how to make minor tweaks to your template files. The second post will cover my recommendations on how I setup my Netbean Templates.
How to customize your Netbean Template Files
You won’t believe how easy it is to edit the template files. Here’s the steps:
- Open Netbeans (Duh!)
- Click on the “Tools” drop down menu
- Select “Templates”
- This will open the “Template Manager” window
Once this Netbean Template Manager is open the only confusion I can see you running into is finding where the HTML and CSS Templates are located. As you will see from the screenshot the files are located in “Other” while PHP files are located in their own section.
To edit the template file just click to select the template and then click the “Open in Editor” button. Once you have made the necessary changes just click the save button or hit “Ctrl+S”.
Again please check out the next article where I share my customizations that I recommend to help save time.
