Which PHP Editor do you think is the best? [v2] in Miscellaneous Posted November 18, 2009 vim is my choice What I really want to use is an editor with File Management capabilties, PHP function recognition, Regex Search and Replace and FTP access, then I believe I'd be a happy camper/coder. Too bad that editor has to be Dreamweaver. Perhaps there is another one out there that I don't know about? file management? do you mean something like Vim Project? vim has PHP function recognition, you just have to get the file from the vim site. regex search/replace has always existed in vim too. ftp is also supported. although i prefer scp via ssh every unix/linux machine out there will have vim or vi (older version) on it so if you do get used to vim, doing an urgent remote edit won't be a problem. there's tons more that vim can do. i'll admit it's not the most pleasant editor to get used to but once you do start using it, your productivity will shoot skywards because it's so efficient.
