    Php Ide?

    Hello people,

    What PHP IDE do you currently use to make your scripts? Does it satisfy you? Do you want anything more?

    I'm currently using PhpEdit, but it doesn't have half the stuff I want in an IDE, so I'm thinking of coding my own....

    Just wondering what other people think.

    Ok Ok,

    People say notepad all the time... But IMHO it's dang hard to take care of a big project with Notepad.

    I was always hoping I could find an IDE with a class window, and code outline. That had a project manager, and could parse all files in the project, and keep track of functions.

    Do you have any idea how much easier that would make things?

    I hear Zend Studio is quite *****in', though it does have a price. PHPEdit is supposed to be good, too.

    Personally, I use Homesite. Simply the best, IMHO.

    I use PHPcoder pro. The coder has been bought by maguma and you can download their PHP4EE studio light PHP IDE. I don't know anything about the new version but I can only guess it is better than the one I have.

    Anyway just give it a try, the old version works very well for me.

    I use PHPCoder Pro, and I'm pretty happy with it too.... good project management, syntax highlighting.. it could use a little touchup in VB though. A richedit box would be nice, as well as more font options.

    I'm thinking about coding an IDE one of these days in VB....

    email me if you wanna help or have suggestions to put in! webmaster@sparked.net

    Homesite 5 is nice because it has the colorcoding and you can map it to a server if you have it so you can execute the code locally in the Preview window.. I have Apache installed on my hard drive with PHP and so I have Homesite mapped to use that server. Things I don't like is that as it is checking to verify that you are using correct syntax for HTML DTD's, it doesn't have XHTML Transitional which I tend to code in...just Strict. But that's HTML, not PHP.

    Textpad.

    I've tired php specific editors, and never found one stable enough / usable enough.

    I can't believe you use notepad.
    It doesn't even keep indents for you.
    Why not just use edlin (-:

    I was just thinking...boy there's enough demand for a good PHP IDE....it would be nice if someone would meet that demand. I'd love to see your product when you do it.

    Hmm,

    Actually, I am seriously thinking of coding a php IDE with everything that I want in it... (I like having a good complete IDE).

    Just that, I haven't really figured out how I would do it. I mean, there are lot's of different ways for me to do it. I could use the MFC classes, but the ones that come with Visual Studio don't really have enough to make what I want. Then, I could buy the extra classes, but that costs $500... money I don't have. Or, I could use wxWindows but the development version. That has all that I need (I think), and it can run on Windows, Linux, Mac, Os/2, and more (as long as it's compliled on those systems.... And is free... but it's in development stages...

    Or, I could make my own stuff with the Windows API, but I think I'm too lazy for that.. heh...

    Or, somebody can help me...

    Homesite is the complete package. Including colour coding (just read in another thread ) I don't know about ver 4.5 but ver 5 is incredible and powerful. There was another one I use on occassion...phpEdit I think. It was recommended by one of the mentors and fits the bill as well.

    Its funny but since I have found homesite I haven't opened up dreamweaver once

    I use TextPad. Works great, very fast, etc. I tried the Zend IDE and I was amazed that on my machine (which isn't a slowpoke) it took litterally 30 seconds to start up, whereas TextPad starts instantaneously.

    A testament to inefficient Java programming!

    You could try ConTEXT or even Maguma PHP4EE Studio. Maguma has a class, file, variable, and include file browser. Once all of the bugs are knocked out of it it will be a nice system.

    Zend IDE is written in Java

    Java = slow

    -cARL

    Disclaimer, I do not guarantee that the Zend IDE is written in java, but I'm pretty sure it is.. if my memory serves me correctly.

    Zend's IDE is written in Java (You can tell by the look of the interface) and of course on windows its slow. Zend's IDE was meant to run on other platforms as well because there are develoeprs who are on linux boxes too.

    I use Editplus and for debugging I run apache with php and mysql installed to debug my applications before they even set foot on a public webserver.

    My set of programs include:
    Editplus (Editing)
    Mysqlfront (Mysql tool, by far the best ever)

    And this setup works just fine for me, however it doesnt have the bells and whistles of an IDE that I would like to have, so for now I just use what works.

    Yeah.. unfortunatly there are no good php IDEs IMHO

    Well, I'm the "do it yourself" type of person. So, I'm adding that to my list of projects... heh, I kind of have a long list...

    Maybe I'll have something by the end of the summer of course, if I'm going to be happy with the product, I'll have to code my own classes to use with the MFC... ah well, whatever I do is a learning experience right? so, it's never a waste of time.

    Besides, I enjoy doing this stuff.
