MavensMate IDE for Apex Coding

It’s pretty nifty, and lightening -based.  Uses either Sublime Text or Visual Studio Code for the editing with automatic colors. It’s made following along with SFDC99 Apex Trigger lessons that much more fun, and underscores the power and beauty of the Lightning Experience.

Send: A New Office 365 Email App
