I’ve been noddling with node.js for a while now. Though now that’s it officially supported by Microsoft I fell it is no longer cool. After trying many editors for my node projects I finally settled on WebMatrix. Just enough IDE without the bloat of a Visual Studio
I use the Canary build of Google Chrome as my main browser so I finally got frustrated and figured out how to launch it from WebMatrix. Well, it turns out you have to write some code!
The code’s pretty simple, it took longer to make a pretty icon and upload it to the gallery than to write it.
Let’s see if anyone downloads it.
The code’s posted on github: https://github.com/petermtate/Canary-WebMatrixExtension
