PHP Function Lookup Toolbar Button
Allows you to add the PHP Function Lookup Bookmarklet and/or a link to the online documentation at, right to a toolbar in HomeSite. The PHP Function Lookup toolbar button fires up IE with a prompt to enter a function for the lookup right from within Home Site or ColdFusion Studio.
This is a useful technique for other toolbar buttons to online help or lookups.

Design-Side Includes Design-Side Includes (DSI) Web Code Reuser Utility is a free 100% Java command-line utility for inserting common sections of HTML code into multiple web pages at design-time. DSI runs on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Solaris. Using DSI, Web site owners easily reuse snippets of HTML code while still realizing the benefits of deploying static web pages. (This is to solve the common problem of wanting common/included HTML headers, footers, etc but not wanting to use server-side includes) Dem Pilafian Java # 11/5/03
DB Schema Viewer
DB Schema Viewer (dbview) is a small utility, designed to be used integrated with HomeSite by adding a button on HomeSite's toolbar. The program allows you to quickly view the tables inside your databases, and the fields inside each table. This is particulary useful, when working with ASP, PHP, JSP, and other scripting languages, to be able to view the names of tables and fields of databases on a remote computer. Ricardo Alcocer

Team Remote Debugger "Team Remote Debugger allows you and your team to trace any number of code units of any kind (ASP, MTS, T-SQL, COM+, ActiveX Exe, DLL, COM, Thread, CFML), written in any language (ASP, VB, VC++, Delphi, T-SQL, VJ, CFML) residing on multiple shared and dedicated servers at the same time, without ever attaching to process!" (author's description, not yet tested personally ~jw) Spline Technologies Corp - # 7/4/01
Dreamweaver Extensions Add-on's for Macromedia Dreamweaver to quickly create ASP or ASP+ code to connect to databases. (drop-down and db query and results table) Emmanuel Meurant DW 2/3 # unknown
activeXviewer IntelliHelp You can use the activeXviewer in Vbscript or Javascript ASP pages developed in Homesite to emulate Visual Interdev's IntelliSense feature. activeXViewer.dll is COM based and can also be used in any COM compliant development IDE to view LocalServer32 and InProcServer32 registered servers. View the activeXViewer.vbs file for example code.
(I haven't gotten to try it yet, but it sounds promising ~jeff)

HS 4+ # 11/21/03
Fusebox Snippets A complete set of Fusedoc tags for Homesite. Andy Jarrett
HS 4+ # 3/10/05

Note: When I say "HS3+" in requirements, I mean that this item will work with HomeSite or Studio version 3 or greater. Likewise "HS4+" items will work with HomeSite v4.0x or Studio 4.0x or later. (including HS v5.x)

Homesite vs. Studio: Please note that these extensions are written for various version of Macromedia (Allaire) HomeSite. Macromedia also makes two other products, ColdFusion Studio and JRun Studio that are supersets of HomeSite. These extensions should work in these products as well, though you should watch the version numbers. Studio version numbers follow HomeSite versions so something that works in a particular version of HomeSite should work in that same version of CF or JRun Studio.
