    Anyone else using phpstorm?

    I'm evaluating phpstorm and sublime text 2. Looking to purchase one or the other within the next month.

    I love the debugging opportunities that phpstorm makes so easy along with the ability to profile my applications (was able to take a 7 page load time to less than a second within 20 minutes).

    sublime text 2 doesn't have either of these, nor does it necessarily need to, as I could use other free open source tools to fill these gaps, but having it in the IDE is a nice options.

    phpstorm has built in repository control with SVN, CVS, git, etc. sublime text 2 requires the purchase of a plugin for SVN (not sure how well git or CVS is supported).

    The total cost is about a 30 dollar difference between the two, so that really isn't a factor to me.

    What would be a HUGE factor is what everyone else thinks of each of these products. I am down to these two, so please do not suggest another option, I've picked these two for various reasons and tested them both on the same project so I could see the interaction from beginning to end.

    The only big issue I have with phpstorm is the ide feels clunky and not as refined as sublime text 2, but maybe that will get better with future versions? Okay, enough of my rambling, what is your opinion on these two products? Have you used them? Did you refuse to use either one for particular reasons?

    Hey,

    I'm on my iPad at the mo so will keep it fairly brief. Just to say that I use phpstorm at work and love it. The code hinting is excellent and very fast, it has great refactoring stuff built in and the integration with xdebug is superb. You can get a plugin for Firefox that will allow you to set break points at any point in any script and be able to step through each variable and object etc and see how they change on a per line basis.

    I use phpstorm as my primary IDE and sublime text 2 for simple edits to single files. I love them both, but php storm has become indispensable.

    I'll type up more when I'm back on my computer tomorrow morning :-)

    Thanks for the quick input, I agree that phpstorm's debugging capabilities are very comparable to Visual Studio for .NET (at least as far as I am concerned). It is the one factor that is weighing me to purchase phpstorm over sublime text 2. I look forward to anything else you can say about either.

    This is the first I've heard of PHPStorm. It sounds interesting. Has anyone who has used PHPStorm also used PHPEdit?

    I've used PHPEdit and I liked it. Though I haven't used it for quite a while (it didn't run well on an older computer) and I never really got too far into any of the advanced features. Maybe there is a professional PHP coder out there who works with these types of IDEs 40 or more hours a week who can offer up a brief comparison of the two?

    I've never used PHPEdit nor did I try it as it won't run on Linux, which is a major requirement for me, just wanted to throw that out there.
