I don't know why people would say dreamweaver is the best PHP EDITOR, it is not really designed for PHP, more for HTML/Design.  PhpED has been my editor for about 1 year and have no plans on going to anything else.  Eclipse is also a good free choose, played with it a little when working on linux.

I used to use ConText which is a great free text editor with colour highlighting (and is now up for sale as a project if anyone wants to buy it) but since I started using my ZDE on my ZCE course I have completely switched, I love the debug and phpdocument features. Plus all the predictive code, which includes any vars, objects, classes, functions I have created and easy access to the php manual too :)

I hear Komodo quite a lot, I don't really like Dreamweaver, I just...no....never, but I think that's just a personal experience thing :)
Thanks Cep

I use Komodo and I love it.  I've used ConText and others but Komodo gets my vote.

Zend rocks!  :P

Before I use Dreamweaver CS3, it has excellent features such as Spry Framework integration. The only thing I hate in Dreamweaver is its FTP connection, its SLOW!

I write my PHP code in notepad++ which is a free download on sourceforge

it color codes your classes, functions etc and your can use the +/- signs on the side to slide the functions that your not working on up or down out of the way, it also supports a number of other languages.


Make your programs idiot proof

If I can't make it better, then I'll make it worse, but it definitely won't be the same.

the features may rock but the program itself is not very stable(as a lot of java based programs I have tried).. PhpED has all the same features for around the same price and built on solid C++.

I'm now currently using Bluefish - Out of the handful of editors I have tried under Ubuntu, it works the best for me, though not perfect. I find that it takes a couple of seconds to open files regardless of their size...


My editor is ever changing - I'm now using one called Geany. I think I might stick with this one, good syntax highlighting; fast; built-in function suggestion (including user defined functions) etc.

Vim is what I prefer. 

Had a college professor who made us do our first couple of projects in vim... and then we could use whatever we wanted... But took the time to learn it (and I only know a little) And its amazing!  Especially with how many plugins there are to make it work exactly how you want.  And on top of that... its free and has all the listed features... and its one of the fastest I've ever worked with.

Vim all the way!

Komodo! Especially 4.x versions where the project stays in sync with the file system, that was a major pain in 3.x versions. The auto-complete is really good and it supports a lot of languages.

I'd love if I could use Eclipse...

The problem is that my boss want the people here to work trough FTP...

Now I'm using E TextEditor + NetDrive. I'm almost buying it, but it still needs some fixes...
Programming is like building your own universe...
But let me ask you something:
Your world... It´s cool? Or it sucks?
