Hello everyone,

I'm a junior web integrator, about to start developing my first theme for Odoo's CMS. As stated in the title, I'm looking for an adequate tool in order to do so.

Jetbrains' IDEA family of IDEs seems to be my thing, thanks especially to their good integration of various frameworks' syntaxes, var/class memory, etc. I've dug into JB repos and found no plugin that could 'teach' them the dark ways of qWeb, which is sad.

What would be your best advice, so as to which I should use ? Is it delusional to hope for an IDE-type experience ? Should I just bootstrap Sublime with a few helpers and get going ?

As a bonus question, would you rather recommend using v8 or v9c, given the latter's lack of community extensions ?

A great many thanks in advance.

Arthur de Sarrieu
