nide is a web-based IDE for node.js. It’s designed with simplicity and ease-of-use in mind.
nide was initially developed as part of the Node Knockout 48 hour coding competition.
nide’s current features:
- Project tree display
- File operations (create/delete/rename files and folders, hide/show hidden files)
- Syntax highlighted code editing for multiple programming languages
- OS X Lion-style automatic save
- OS X Lion-style version management with revert and side-by-side editing features
- Real time project tree filtering (using regular expressions)
- NPM integration (display currently installed packages, add/remove packages, automatically update package.json)
- Image previewing.
- HTML previewing.
- HTTP authentication (for running Nide on a public server)
- Optionally run nide as a native Mac application.
- Sleek interface reminiscent of TextMate
- Node.JS Documentation browsing
What's new in Nide 0.2.0:
- You can now refresh the directory listing manually, through the gear menu.
- You can now specify a host IP for listening via a command line option.
- You can now specify a username and password for HTTP authentication.
- Editor state (caret position, selection, scroll) is now preserved when switching between multiple files.
- Nide is now available as a native Mac application. The Mac app is still on a very early stage of development, so expect some hiccups.
- Numerous bug fixes.
What's new in Nide since 0.1.0 was released:
- A simple cache mechanism is now present to avoid unnecessary directory listings.
- Directory listing is now much faster and more reliable.

- Nide will now check for file size before opening a file.
- HTML files can now be previewed directly from Nide.
- Image files can now be viewed directly from Nide.
- Lots of bugfixes.
First, install nide with:

On a new or existing directory, use the following command to setup a new nide project:
This command will setup a
.nide directory, automatically add it to your
.gitignore files, and start the
nide server on port 8123. Fire up your web browser
localhost:8123 to use nide. If a directory is already a nide project, you can run
nide simply by using:
