ApexLib APEX Developer Addon

Do you ever wanted to have Syntax Highlighting in the APEX Application Builder?

Or Keyboard Shortcuts for Save, Run, Next and others?

What about efficient and quick Navigation through the Application Builder? e.g. Jump directly from Edit Page to Application Items?

Then you’ll need the all new ApexLib APEX Developer Addon, which is a so called “User Script”, an Extension for your Browser which enhances the Application Builder with all those Features.

All you need is a current Version of Firefox with Greasemonkey or Google Chrome.

Read all about it and get the ApexLib APEX Developer Addon.

    I don’t get it,..
    I am using Firefox (9.0.1) ,.. Have GreaseMonkey (0.9.15) nstalled,.. and enabled.
    But when i drag and drop the downloaded .js file into my browser ,. it just shows me the text content of the file…..

    Try to do that when you are in APEX Application Builder editing a Page or an Item. And make sure that the filename is apexlib_developerAddon.user.js

    Unformtunately, still no result,..

    Im am in the Apex Application Builder,.. have a page open for editing,.. drag and drop the file (I checked the filename) into my browser,.. but again I get to see the content…..
    I have even tried to disable all other extentions and have only GreaseMonkey enabled….. but no difference..
    any other thoughts?

    First of all thanks this tool is amazing, but I find the following issue frustrating.
    Why does the plsql syntax highlighter freeze, after refresh?
    I use it in chrome, and when I click the PL/SQL lick in editor options the first time. After I submit, the code is still highlighted but I can not edit it.
    Known bug? Some setting that I can’t find?

    yesterday a fix for a chrome bug was released, please clear the addon cache and try again.
