    Favorite IDE?

    I'm getting back into PHP after a hiatus with JAVA, I'm really used to a good IDE, and want a good one for PHP. Currently I'm using EditPlus which has some syntax highlighting, but thats it.

    Any suggestions?

    Debuggers?

    I have tried Maguma Studio Light, but didn't really like it.

    I use the eclipse environment (which you probably know if you've been programming java) with a bunch of pluggins amongst which phpeclipse, and a bunch of others for javascript / css editing pluggins.

    Komodo by ActiveState! Beautiful editor! Includes built-in support for viewing the results of your interpreted PHP code, as well! (though you will have to tell the editor where to find PHP on your computer) Also does the nifty thing where it'll identify a closing brace or bracket - very helpful. Plus lots of other stuff I haven't even looked at.

    What is it you don't like about Maguma? That's what I use, but if something is better, I'm interested in looking at it.

    Komodo is pretty cool and I have heard that the Mono IDE is going to have PHP support... So I might use that when it comes out.

    No, I don't use the features of Maguma, just the find matching brace thing, since 90% of my errors are related to too many or too few braces lol
