PHP Editor

    Can anyone recommend a PHP editor?
    I bought my first PHP book and am taking my first tenative steps , but figured that an editor would probably behelpful.
    SEMrush
    I have Dreamweaver MX, and it appears to have some PHP fuctionality, but is it worthwhile using?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on how advanced you need it.

    UltraEdit is what I use.

    I use either Dreamweaver (A very good professional tool) or Textpad.

    I have used ultraedit, phpedit but my favorite is Zend Studio.. costs a bundle though versus a free one. alternatively when i dont have access I use notepad.

    ;-) good luck finding the one that fits you best. :)

    vi

    It's a programming language, so unless you're just doing cuts and pastes, a bare text editor is the way to go. Real man programming.

    BTW, I Like the links to Murano glass. Was there last fall and for carnevale. Unexpected place to see a connection. It's beautiful stuff.

    I use both ultraedit and Zend Studio (Zend is just awesome!) I personally think that for what you get in the Zend application, it's well worth the money.

    EditPlus is the best I've seen. I've been using it for four years and it's never crashed or frozen on me.

    I'm pretty sure you can get a free trial. And then it's like $30.00 to license.

    GNU emacs is a great editor and handles many different types of file. It provides auto indentation, color coding, and rudimentary syntax checking. It's available for virtually any OS you are running.

    And of course, it is free.

    Phpedit is very easy to code with, but don't count on it to work with any larger files. I had to write a fairly large app and the program slowed to a crawl when opening editing any of the large files.

    I use ultraedit, but recently have made a switch to jedit for cross platform sake. Emacs is good too. . . or you could also try eclipse (but not with any of the 3.x releases).

    I like Eclipse with the PHP plugin installed. Eclipse is a IDE developed by IBM for Java development that was open sourced. It now is supported by developers around the world and is moddable to allow it to work with differernt programming languages. It's the best IDE for Java, IMHO and with the PHP plugins installed, its great for PHP too.

    There is a pretty steep learning curve, but once you have it down, you can develop in PHP and Java (JSP) if necessary in the future. It's great for object oriented development. There are plugins for C/C++, Perl and .Net and others I'm sure you can find. :)

    PHPed is a good editor in windows, unfortunately the linux version is buggy piece of shit. The only time it works well if you use a officially supported distro, don't use a multibyte character set, and avoid editing large files simultaneously; the linux version doesn't slow down with large projects/files; it just crashes (you can can also prevent the crashes by disabling all the "code insight" features).

    Dreamweaver works fine for me. I code all the PHP myself in any case, and Dreamweaver does the job for the rest of the HTML bits.

    If you cannot afford EditPlus $30 get the free clone called
    Crimson editor

    PHP Editor is great but I'd recommend Zend if you can justify the $$$ or enter the comp at http://www.weberdev.com and win it like I did.

    I've never used Dreamweaver but I've seen plenty of code generated by it and would never touch the thing. Hideous. Don't know about the PHP but the html, image slicing and javascript are really bad. They work, just don't try to maintain them, don't ask them to be SEO friendly, efficient, cross-browser etc.

    I use PHPCoder Pro but it's a bit quirky at times. At home I installed something else but forgot the name. Maguma Studio or something.
