    My dream PHP ide

    All the features HTML-Kit has plus...

    A built in installer of PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL
    Just hit F5 and preview your page
    A pretty interface, ala Web Matrix
    Easy documentation of your functions
    Easy technical documentation
    Tools to help you build XHTML quickly
    A built in set of useful classes
    PHP, MySQL, and PostgreSQL manuals built it, searchable
    Add notes for yourself, about different files
    Allows you to add a pop3 checker, say for your support/contact adress. Whenever you get an e-mail, it pops up.
    Encoder like http://sourceguardian.com/ that allows you to set a time limit for how long you can use it.
    Something like phpMyAdmin built in, but also for PostgreSQL too.
    Database simulator - type in a query, get back the results.
    Use markers and test how long each part of your script takes to execute.
    Whenever typing in syntax or a function, the ide will have a small yellow box explaining parameters, much like in Visual Basic. You'll also have "read more" which will give you links from the manual, an example, and possibly web material.
    UML modeling

    This thread has two purposes:

    1) What other features would you like in your dream IDE?
    2) Are there any IDEs that have these features, at least a few?

    Ability to mind read what script I want made and then to produce it within 5 seconds, I hate slow bloatware so it's gotta be quick.

    Now that'd be fantastic!

    I expect to get flamed by Harry for this, but except for this one...

    Allows you to add a pop3 checker, say for your support/contact adress. Whenever you get an e-mail, it pops up.
    If you do .NET development, Microsoft Visual Studio.NET does all of what you are asking.

    well, outlook express does that for me too.. i just set it to check for new email every minute, and it makes a sound when there's a new one (no popup tho, but there's also an icon on the system tray.. IF i had the option of having a popup instead i wouldn't use it cause it's intrusive)



    HA! TAKE THAT!

    I said EXCEPT for that feature. Or were you being sarcastic?
