What do you edit your PHP code with?
Posted 08 July 2006 - 12:03 AM
Now I need something for home to code with.
I'm willing to buy something but if there is a free editor I'm all for that.
I like some I've seen where the PHP is actually color coded but so far they lack any good FTP functionality.
I tried PHP Designer 2006 Beta and it was nice but I the FTP functionality wasn't all that great.
So I thought why not ask all the PHP coders out there how you do it.

The reason I like it because it highlight your php code, so it's easier to spot any mistake make by you.
To be a coder, you must learn how to think and not to give up so easily.

I use a $30 app called Rapid PHP 2006. It has alot of good features all designed towards PHP. You can edit alot of different other files too. Has built in syntax highlighting for a number of other langauges. Has a lot of other built in features too such as FTP etc. Its very good and worth the money.

I use Vim
it's unbelievably flexible...you can build almost ANYTHING into it and it's still lightening fast.
you can even use your local vim to edit a file directly on the remote server...which is quite different from SSH'ing into a remote machine and editing if you do that sort of thing...because this feels a lot faster since changes are commited when you save only.
honestly though, i don't think anything can beat vim's functionality. try it out...it might take a little getting used to but once you know how some of it works...well i'll just let you find out for yourself

I've never really used Frontpage as frontpage. I just hard code everything. But I've found with frontpage the text is all black.
I like how these php editors color code the text for you.
Frontpage does this for html/css etc but the second you save the file as .php it goes to crap.
There is a PHP Rocket add in for FP but it doesn't seem to work.
If I want this feature am I most likely going to leave FP?
Will Dreamweaver work ok?

redarrow do you seriously use plain old notepad? LoL... i guess it doesn't get more purist than that..
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community

for simplicity (and a marginal step above notepad), editpad lite is worth a download.

Can also html, python, java, whatever you need ... and is very easy to use.

PHP Designer is the best free editor out there in my opinion, at least for Windows...
