Summary : Which code editor is preferable for PHP / WordPress develompent, VSCode or Apache NetBeans 11?
I had been using Bracket for the “live preview” and switched to Code a couple of months ago and had the live preview working in a round about way. Last week I started going through the book “PHP and Algorithmic Thinking” and was introduced to NetBeans. The interface is ancient but the IDE does have some nice features.
Now I am unable to decide if I should continue to use NetBeans or go back to Code.
NetBeans does not seem to have a choice of themes and good fonts to use for coding, but does make it easy to run console type PHP apps within.
Any suggestions? Personal reasons for sticking to one or the other?
Is anybody even using NetBeans for PHP? I do see it listed in Stack Overflow surveys and “best editor” lists. Just wanted some input.
Appreciate it guys,
