Thread: PHP Editor

    PHP Editor

    Which PHP editor do you use?

    I am using an old version of Macromedia HomeSite that is over 10 years old and am looking for something new. I would prefer a freebie editor, but am willing to shell out some money for a really great editor.

    If you are a code monkey, which editor do you use and why do you like it?

    I like NetBeans - it's free and has all the features you could wish for. NetBeans IDE - PHP Development

    I will take a look at NetBeans. I thought NetBeans was focused on Java. Didn't know that they have a PHP version.

    NetBeans is written in Java but supports several programming languages. I'm using it for PHP projects, and it rocks.

    But, if you find it too advanced for your needs, Notepad++ is a great editor for coders. I use it for small scripts, text editing, searching directories for snippets of text in files, advanced search and replace of text etc.

    Yeah, NetBeans requires a little bit of a learning curve, but can be addictive (I used it for some Java work a million years ago when Sun still existed as an independent entity...)

    Text editors all the way for coding once I know a language though...just faster that way.

    @Andy101Does the PHP project option encapsulate a testing environment as well?

    Yes it does, but you need to install Xdebug. This allows you to step through the code, monitor variable values, and set break points etc.

    There are lots of free PHP editor are there that can be used. Like notepad++, context editor, PSpad, context editor, Geany and HTML kit. All these editors are easy to use and also are free so that you can install it easily with out any charge. I have used some of them editors also.
