Can I load drupal as a project into any DEVELOPER ENVIRONMENT?
I have my own web portal designed using drupal 7.51. My requirements are so dynamic that I want to code on the project and deploy it. I may have to modify and customise the modules and the entire drupal project. Working on notepad++ or drupal layout is a bit hectic for my case. I feel better if am able to take control of the entire project through a DEVELOPER environment such as Eclipse, netbeans. May I know how to do that?
