This thread updates the classic editors superthread.

Since the editor landscape is changing so quickly we'll run this poll yearly.

Please tell us what editor you are using to do your PHP development work and feel free to express opinions about it or any of the other editors mentioned.

You may change your vote during the course of the year.

Sorry if your editor is not in the list of options, we had to trim a lot of editors out of the list because it was just too long. If your editor is not in the list, specify "Other" and post a note in the thread with more detail.

Eclipse, almost exclusively. Especially for larger project development.

For one-off's, Notepad2. For slightly larger coding sessions but not Eclipse level coding, Notepad++.

Oh yeah, I voted for TextMate because I think I'm in love with it. If you're on a mac TM will set a new standard for your expectations in a text editor. They seem to have it spot-on :)

That said, I'm going to download Coda later today and see what the fuss is about, but I doubt I'll prefer it over TM.

Currently Notepad++, however I'm making the move to a Mac finally in a few weeks, so I'll soon be giving textmate a try :)

I have always found Eclipse too heavy (and dare I say clunky) for my liking. Emacs is my editor of choice because it is so customizable and unlike so many other editors, it just seems to not get in my way. It's also available on windows (and mac I believe) and is of course totally free. :lol:

From what I've heard, TextMate is basically emacs for mac users. :P

Agreed.

Mine too, but only when it comes to editing code on command line. I can't stand xEmacs :| Then again, I usually just use nano on command line unless I need fancy features. Even nano is customizable (syntax highlighting, indentation, mutliple buffers etc).

Definitely not. I'm not joking when I say TextMate set a new expectations for me when it comes to text editors. They really just got it right. It's functional, it's feature-packed (but light at the same time, how did they do that??) and extensible!

PS: I tried Coda today and didn't like it. I couldn't find any way to create a project in it and it just looked very lacking for an editor that costs USD $80. From what I hear, it's great for CSS/HTML but for programming it doesn't cut the mustard.

I really like SciTE. Just figured out the other day how to make it use tabs. It has highlighting for almost any language you could possibly want to write in, and more. The only feature I wish it had is a folder viewer. :(

What is a Macro, and what are they for? I've heard a lot about them.

Also use Dreamweaver for my big stuff, but am moving to Linux soon, so I'll try Wine, and if it doesn't work well with my applications, I'll just find something else. Maybe Eclipse? :wink:

In Linux I prefer Eclipse->Kate->Vi

I'm hardly ever in Windows but if I need to edit something quickly I'll just use Wordpad.

NuSphere PhpED. Worked in Zend Studio, was slow, tried PHPEdit, was a bit clunky, so I'm still using PhpED, until something better comes along.

When I started using SVN Eclipse became a must have. SVN is great for storing code changes on large or ongoing projects because you can always pull older versions of each file and it's all compressed. Eclipse integrates with SVN perfectly and saves you the time of having to import/export/update/add/delete/commit changes through a CLI.
