I use Rapid PHP... Its a really good editor when needed... But most of the time I work without an editor.

But most of the time I work without an editor


Yeah, sometimes I like to turn my monitor off when I'm programming.

Yeah, I disconnect my keyboard when I'm feeling really hardcore.

Hah!

Definitely VIM, although KWrite is pretty nice for light editing.

Zend 5...

bought it and use it now as a professional developer.

I tried zend 6 and didnt like it to me it brought to many problems when i was developing...wasnt collasping code correctly etc...
Zend 5 is by far the best as what I'd say really helps developing.
- Linux - Ubuntu, RedHat
- PHP - Unus, Zend
- Python - Django
- The best programs are built by idiots that no one can understand

Well,

DreamWeaver is not a good PHP editor, it has nothing that makes it stand out for PHP. You might as well be using notepad with color coding.

Eclipse with the PDT plugin is a real IDE - DreamWeaver's got nothing on it for PHP development.

While it is not specifically a PHP editor Coda by Panic Software is the best editor I have ever used! I really cant even say enough about it!

Debugging with XDebug within Eclipse is pretty amazing with projects of any relative complexity. That, and project management has been unmatched in the many IDE's I have tried (Netbeans PHP Plugin, Geany, Kate, Vim (Love vim, just no project support (that i know of))

I have seen some pretty amazing things that Emacs can do, but their control scheme is way too crazy for me.

Dreamweaver in Code View for me - best thing you can use, especially with it's in-built FTP facility. Before that I used Notepad++ and Programmers Notepad; Notepad++'s FTP section isn't really good at all - you have to refresh the connection and other times the FTP program won't save modified files of mine... at least it did the job?

i belive that rapidphp is good, one feature i like is it has a live preview similar to dreamweavers (except it acctually displays it properly) and the live preview also parses php, very handy, it has all the features of dreamweaver jsut more php orientated, it has a handy function to install it to your flash drive so you can use it whereever you go, it also has the option to replace the ie source viewer with it

But and here is the big but... I am dumb... lol

im not saying they dont use java but im saying they must have some form of serverside protection?

like a php condom

Ever since I started coding seriously, I've used vim, and don't plan to change anytime soon.

I tried Coda a few weeks ago, then went back to TextMate pretty quickly. TextMate just seems to suit me better.

NetBeans 6.5 is looking pretty promising.  Some bugs need to be ironed out- beta was just released yesterday.  Small download (20mb) and comes with JS/CSS editing, debugging in Firefox and IE, plus database tooling.

I am using Zend Studio for Eclipse, and it is good. Especially if you are developing a Zend Framework Project
