PHP Editor

Discussion in 'PHP' started by Triexa, May 17, 2007.

    I know this sort of topic comes up often, so sorry for that. Let me go over my case.

    I've used Dreamweaver forever mainly because I liked its highlighting. Obviously it is not software designed to be used PURELY as a "text editor" - and it ran slower than it should for what I wanted. So, I tried out UltraEdit today. So far so good - but it seems to be better suited for other languages and just has added support for PHP.

    I was wondering if there was some sort of benefit of going to an IDE/editor DEDICATED to php?

    I only plan to work with PHP and its associated files - like css files, html, etc.

    what's wrong with Dreamweaver in this regard?

    I know Dreamweaver 8+ has some cool build in PHP tools with WYSWYG functions? Also has lots of little code snippets!

    Maybe you could get someone to develope a DW plugin with more PHP snippets?

    Anyways I think DW is ok for PHP...haven't seen too many probs.

    DW is expensive, it loads slow (ok, so does what I use, Eclipse...), it does not have enough focus on PHP etc. It is, as you said, ok, but there is better, and Eclipse (and the PHP plugin for it) is free. For quick tasks, NotePad++ does the job well and also has many of the features I like of Eclipse.

    That would be incredibly difficult to make. The closest thing to WYSIWG programming is IDEs for languages such as C++, .NET and the WYSWIYG part is only for the frontend, much like how Dreamweaver is for the frontend of a web app, the HTML/CSS.

    How would you make a "What You See Is What You Get" editor for a scripting language? That doesn't make any sense. PHP doesn't deal with the output, that's done on the client's end. It's just a way to modify content before it's sent to the client.

    dreamweaver is a bloated piece of garbage. i beleive it is responsible for the majority of hideous code on the internet. people hear "yeah man dreamweaver is so cool. i click a few buttons and my website was done! all by me! in 3 minutes! WOW MAN"... this is like me putting on a badge and acting like a cop. i'm not going to follow any rules. i am going go out there and think i own the world.standards or not. my point is, dreamweaver isn'y so bad if you know what you are doing. if you don't the difference better <br /> and <br> other than the /, you have no business using it. as far as the text editor of my choice, editplus.

    I use php designer, there are two versions - commercial / personal, the commercial one is far better, but the personal one is still an excellent php editor.

    I dont really get how a wysiwyg editor would work for php, it seems a ridiculous idea to me, php isn't for creating webpges, it's for programming the server those pages reside on .........

    I tried it and didn't like it, forgot why, might be missing a feature I think is important or lack of features in general. phpEclipse is better :)

    I also forgot to mention phpEdit before. It is developed by waterproof software and is, in my opinion, one of, if not, the best if not for its price tag.
