Your Good PHP IDE

Recommended Posts

I'm currently using eclipse. It's not perfect and I'm still on the lookout for another page, but highlighting is flawless, the debugging is pretty good and I like the class overview when you're on a page with classes on.

 

My biggest wish would be that it showed me my class layouts for all classes. Eg if I include db.class.php in index.php, it would show me the methods of the db class, instead of just any functions in index.php

 

No errors I've found, the only things I'd change would be a couple of useability issues. It's pretty fast for a java program :)

 

As long as I require db.class.php, it shows me db.class.php's methods in a context menu (ctrl+space by default) when I am using it.

 

Are you speaking specifically about the class overview option?

Any good free editors/IDEs for Macs (just made the switch)? 

 

I still use an old copy of Homesite for Windows for PHP work...

My favorite editors for each OS..

 

Windows: phpDesigner 2008, in my opinion this is by far the best IDE, it also has framework support.

Linux: gEdit, the native Gnome text editor, you can change the preferences and use plug-in's to change it into more of an IDE.

Mac: Text-Mate, Text-Mate is my favorite IDE of all time, it supports almost all languages, has dozens of macro's, etc..

Thanks- I'll have to check out Geany!

 

I like TextMate, though it does cost money ;-)

Net Beans.  I use it for Java as well as PHP and I cannot fault it.  I'm a Mac user by the way, so it's great to have software that runs on Windows and Mac, as I use it in the Windows based labs at University too.

 

Before you ask, yes, I have used Eclipse but I just find Net Beans accomplishes near enough the same task, but much more simply.

+1 For Notepad++, it also works under Linux with Wine so big plus.

NetBeans 6.5 Beta came out yesterday.  They've tweaked the PHP editor, added FTP support, and my personal favs: improved the database features especially around MySQL, and JS debugging for both Firefox and IE!

I've migrated to NetBeans from Notepad++ (having tested some others along the way). I've started with NetBeans PHP EA, but the real fun started, with NetBeans 6.5M1 release. Now I'm working on nightly versions, but they're pretty much stable. I've never lost any work due to an error.

Netbeans looks okay, but they need to get it into an all-in-one package instead of sending me off to install bits of java runtime environments and development kits. If I cared about Java, I wouldn't be coding in PHP would I?

Its similar situation with other software asking you to install diffirent versions of .NET platform. (And hey! If you have .Net v3 it doesn't mean you won't need .NET v2!).

NetBeans at least lets you decide which JAVA SDK, SVN client,  PHP interpreter etc... you want to use

 

BTW: NetBeans 6.5 Beta is out.

Hmm I have never heard of net beans before reading these posts, I'll have a look at it.

 

At the moment I use DW CS3 and Vim for quick edits
