Since we started using Vagrant boxes in our projects, we've also been experimenting with provisioning tools. However, this post is not about the best provisioning tool - I am no expert, we don't have hundreds of production servers to provision. Not even tens. But we do have a few, and so this post is about how write your Ansible scripts for use with Vagrant as well as production servers.

Quite a while ago, I wrote an article on how we left Eclipse behind. Back then I stated we'd NEVER go back to Eclipse, and that much is true.. but we did get annoyed with Netbeans, for more than one reason.

Jasper and I were so seriously annoyed by the spinning beach ball in Eclipse PDT that it was decided to try a switch in editors. I used my free Zend Studio licence to check it out, and he tried Netbeans 7.0. I'm not here to write about the comparison, for me Zend Studio was -not surprisingly, as it's based on Eclipse- even more beach ball prone and quickly tossed aside. (read on for some of my favorite improvements).
