Hmmmm

I am surptised no one really mentioned Macromedia Homesite! I love to use it because it has so many features just like Allaire Homesite and Coldfusion. I like the many functions and flexibility it offers not to mention the ease of how to integrates it with other tools and editors even!!

Including apps like fireworks, photoshop, you name it, it can be configured to work with it. I recommend it mostly for the hands-on programmers and not the WYSIWYG type cut corner scriptors.

Kate

Interesting. It looks like a pretty vanilla editor with syntax highlighting and folding. No code insight/hints, which is my big requirement for a PHP editor.

Zend Studio Is ABSOLUTELY the best one you can get...
I even like other products from Zend

But Zend studio is 100% best

"Zend -- a best a php programmer can get!"

Hehe... but i believe that its true... such a great support for all needed functions, intellisence, autocomplete, dependence check, parser, debugger, CVS and FTP... and i was just getting started :D

I use HTML Kit

http://www.chami.com/html-kit/

It sucks, but its free.

It color-codes and line-numbers, and it preserves your tabbing when you press enter, but I can't get the Tab key to simply output 4 spaces, it does 3 one time, 4 the next, its all over the place, and the actual tab characters are even more varried. I tab everything with the space bar.

In short, thank god for this topic. If anything in here is free I'll be downloading soon.

I'm on the DreamWeaver '04 MX Pro bandwagon!

I love it.

I would like to find a troubleshooting tool for PHP 'tho... I can't seem to dig anything worthwhile up on an internet search... anyone have any ideas?

What do you mean by "troubleshooting"? If you mean debugging, then Xdebug is pretty much the standard.

I use this with the PHP plug-in (instant access to most/all PHP functions) and the PHP local manual, its good

PSPad

Postby groovenectar » Thu Apr 07, 2005 5:48 am

I'm not suprised that no one has mentioned PSPad; if it were more well known, I'm sure that more people would be recommending it. In my opinion, it's the best free editor out there, and the author is constantly adding features.

http://www.pspad.com/

I have written a blog post on my site that explains some reasons why I think it's the best.

http://www.soulpass.com/archives/2005/0 ... xt-editor/

Let me encourage you all to try it, and compare it with the editor that you use now. Take all things into consideration, including details such as the size of the program/load time and maybe even price.

I have tried many of the editors that have been mentioned in this thread, and have passed them off to the side. PSPad is one that I've stuck with because I have not found one better. Let me know if you find one that you feel is better!

I'll admit, it does look fairly feature-rich. I may give it a try.

its ok... however still gonna stick with Zend Studio :)

however for those that cant afford to buy it -- PSPad seems like quite a good alternative..

Add a better IntelliSence to it and good debugger : it will be even better :D
