This is a short tutorial on how to use Netbeans for Joomla Development, specifically how to use it when working with the Joomla SVN. It can be useful to anyone using SVN with a php project, but is geared towards those who wish to use Netbeans as their primary IDE particularly using Joomla.
Some issues have been reported with checking out from the SVN. If you cannot checkout, please try putting 'anonymous' in the username with a blank password.
Renaming the installation folder is actually not necessary because the trunk disables the check to help workflow, except for a release.
