PHP IDEs

I'm trying to teach myself PHP with the aid of a book, but I'm finding it a little tricky having to just use notepad. Maybe I've been spoilt by all the lovely features of Visual Studio 2005, but if someone could recommend a decent (and free) IDE for PHP that would be ace. Debugging support is essential, and it would be really great if it had anything like IntelliSense, but no big deal if it doesn't

Re: PHP IDEs

I think Eclipse ( www.eclipse.org ) has development tools for php.

As a half way house, get a decent text editor with syntax highlighting, etc. I personally use Crimson Editor (http://www.crimsoneditor.com) even though there's nothing that special about it, and it ceased development ages ago. You can save directly to remote sites (useful with PHP), makes sequential backups of any saves, and the highlighting stuff means I notice 90% of the typos I make, without being burdened by anything too elaborate. It also allows you to switch to syntaxes for ASP, SQL, Perl, etc (or design your own) which is useful for the stuff I do.

Also, macros are a godsend for a lot of general data handling stuff (e.g. formatting a list of items for insertion into a table).

A doddle to setup, and even with the docs/syntax files/other gumpf it's only 2.5mb or something like that.

Re: PHP IDEs

Its not an IDE by any means (though the macros/scripts are reasonably flexible), but these days I've found Context to be invaluable and has become my defacto dev platform.

Re: PHP IDEs

Eclipse with PDT is what I currently use. It is still not satisfiable, but after testing zend, phped, phpeclipse, vs.php and a lot of freeware ide's I consider Eclipse/PDT as most useful IDE.

Re: PHP IDEs

I use HTMLKit for just about anything (www.chami.com) Its free (also a paid version is available) and it ahs a heap of plugins available. It has everything you need.

If you are looking for RAD, then i cannot help you, excpet that RAD is stupid :P. If you insist, try Delphi for PHP, they say its fun

Re: PHP IDEs

phpeclipse is horrible, I quite like PDT though, and as it's still actually being developed (phpeclipse is basically dead) it can only get better

RAD tools again can simply be tools which help you refactoring / testing / debugging your code in an efficient way (fast + easy to use / easy to get used to). Those are cool, and life savers at times.

Re: PHP IDEs

Does anyone know zend studio? I'm wondering if its any good and, more importantly, worth € 356
Another question: edit: OK, I admit I'm stupid

Re: PHP IDEs

I use Zend Studio and think it's worth the money. I'd recommend you look at the http://www.php-editors.com/ site. It has a basically is a site made up to answer your question

I used textpad for years. Then I used php designer for a while (free for personal use)

Re: PHP IDEs

I also use Zend Studio and it is very good, but unless you are very serious about PHP then its a lot of money to invest, if you are using windows then Programmers Notepad is good and free, but its only really an editor.
