If you have a favourite editor for PHP (or want to advertise one you have created) this is the thread to do it in (there's also lots of info here: viewtopic.php?t=2911).

Please give a link to the product's homepage (if available) and give an indication which platforms it runs on and what (if anything it costs).

Ta very much,
Mac

I use PHPEdit on my windowsbox.I simply copy&paste the feature overview list from the homepage
Quote:
* Syntax Highlighting
* Code Hint, Code Insight
* Integrated PHP debugger
* Help Generator
* Customizable shortcuts
* More than 150 scriptable commands
* Keyboard templates
* Todo report generator
* QuickMarks
* Plugins
It's small (about 6MB; 1.24MB current version update) and quite fast.
Since I really like debuggers I won't recommend an IDE without ;)
If you're used to javadoc, doxygen or similar you will also appreciate the help-generator. Syntax highlighting includes matching braces.
Always get the latest (complete) development version, stable lacks many features and imho isn't more stable than recent dev. versions.

edit: oh, I just became aware that some dev.versions really are development! versions. The latest update crashes on my computer far too often :(

Editplus - I've been using it since I got really irritated with Notepad whilst coding 'my first website' and now I'm sort of thinking I need something more but I really like Editplus.

Scarily enough, I use ColdFusion Studio. We have ColdFusion at the office, even though we no longer use it (yay PHP!). However, the editor studio has customizable colour schemes for a whole slew of languages. Also, the global find/replace functions are really useful at times. Granted, there is not a PHP code checker, but I never use them anyways.

What I would like is something like PHP Edit, but with customizable colour schemes. *sigh* Maybe I should just give in and write my own finally.

I use TEXTPAD
(http:\\www.textpad.com)

Standard editor, like Editplus. It also has default blank editable script etc.
Try it.

I use BBEdit Lite. Quick and dirty app that lets me code how I want, doesn't change my source at all. Saves in a lot of formats, too, including changing the type of linebreak used. Loads up instantly, quits instantly. It is Lite, just like it says.

I use xemacs for just about *everything* - PHP, HTML, java, python, C/C++, asm, etc. If a feature's not in there, just whip out your elisp manual and roll your own. At this point, though, there's a major mode or a package for just about every known language and customization.

Personally I started with dreamweaver 4 and moved to notepad when I got heavy into php, but got dreamweaver MX wich is really cool...

If you get Macromedia Studio MX you got just about every thing you need.


Dreamweaver MX can be picked up at a school bookstore for about $100.

Been using 2 of them lately, Komodo and Anjuta. Both have their ups and downs, but the only features of an editor that I consistently use are code highlighting, braces matching, code folding, and tabbed editing.
Cool thing about anjuta is that you can have a terminal in the bottom pane, so I can do my Mysql stuff in the same window, as well as move directories around, etc.
Komodo is nice because it reads my include files to figure out my functions and suggest them, which Anjuta doesn't do because it was designed to be a C++ IDE.
Haven't tried Zend studio, do they have a good trial program or free version? I'm too lazy to look it up...
