I’m looking for simple PHP editor that has the following features:
1- word completion
2- debugging lines of code
3- simple and light and good in organising files
4- cross-platform (not required but better if it’s avaiable)
5- ability to save code snippets to use them later (not required but better if it’s avaiable)\
6- specialized for PHP.
Thousands of these questions and millions on responses…but I guess I’ll add mine again…I use Komodo IDE (Paid for, there is a free version called Edit) it pretty much covers your list except for 6. It Specializes in multiple languages not just PHP. Plus I like having the ability to have to files open at once side by side.
I hate Dreamweaver. I will honestly admit I look down on people who call themselves developers who use Dreamweaver. There is just much more appropriate software out there such as; Eclipse, Netbeans, etc for programming purpose. Dreamweaver, is really good for one thing, translating design mock-ups into horrible, automated code. If I were in the position to hire people and someone told me they used Dreamweaver, I’d probably end the interview at that instant. To me it just demonstrates a really poor decision, inability to change or improve. Go with Eclipse, Netbeans or if your able to afford it, Zend Studio. Never tried Bluefish, I prefer Ecplise myself, though I would use Zend Studio in a heart beat if it were an option where I work.
