Can someone recommend a PHP editor?

Recommended Posts

Hi there ppl.

I normally use jEdit for coding php. Its good but irs intended to be used for programming languages such as Java. Can any one recommend an editor for php which they have found particularly useful.

Thanks in advance as always.

An alternative to vim is context - just do a quick search for context + editor + text or something :)

Even though i'm a total noob, this one has been a great tool and has all types of built in libraries of common PHP/HTML/XML/JAVASCRIPT functions and code. Highly rated, reivewed by the big software shareware freebie sites, etc. etc.

Personally, i find phpdesigner 2006 a really great editor. If you download the php file then it passes your code and checks for syntax errors; because thing like ' " ( and { must also have a closing ' " ) }, it puts two of them in if you type one and positions the cursor in the midde(this can be turned off); if you highlight an opening or closing bracket (/) it highlights the other to help with checking logic. And of course it does things like syntax highlighting and giving function prototypes.

I use Edit+ from www.editplus.com and wouldn't use anything else.

The features speak volumes for the program.

UltraEdit or plain old Notepad. Programs like Dreamweaver etc...I do not like.

As I said in another post -- it depends on which platform I'm using to write my code:

Windows XP:
TopStyle Pro
vim
notepad

Linux/UNIX
vim
vi

VMS
Edit (eve) (a plain text editor)

I have been using PHP Expert Editor for a long time.
I find it has all I need plus a built-in server, code highlighting, FTP upload (you can save a file and it will upload automatically).

I recommend downloading 3.3 because it is more lightweight than 4.0 and faster loading.

Dreamweaver seems too bloated to me for PHP devlopment, but I never used it for very belong because of that.
