I really like Komodo Edit

although I am REALLY new to programming and thus php as well

I have been using Komodo for a good while for html and css and have grown to like it enough to not have any urge to look elsewhere.

If you are prepared to pay money for your editor then this is an excellent product for all round web development.

I use Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 it is awesome and much easy to use
it is also facilitating you with FTP.
I think working with this one is good experience

Whats up with all the people using dreamweaver to code PHP? Seems like overkill. Notepad++ for me.

Netbeans can be a good choice for novince and professionals

Postby fawadpm » Sat Feb 04, 2012 10:27 pm

I have been using netbeans for several years.
it can be the best for beginner with features like syntax highlighting, error highlighting, auto completion and few more. and can be best for professional programmers when you need support for CVS versioning, cake php, smarty framework, symphony framework and a very customizable and accessible user interface and several other plugins can be installed. it is free and open source and available for windows, Linux, mac and computer which have a java run time environment(JRE) or java development Kit(JDK).
i have attached a screenshot of netbeans 7.1 under a windows operating system.
just download the jdk from http://www.java.com
and netbeans from http://www.netbeans.org
and test it.

And windows user can also use a unique tool from Microsoft for free. Microsoft web matrix.
the beta2 version of Microsoft offers code auto completion for php, css, javascript, html and most of other softwares like joomla, wordpress, syntax highlighting, ftp (editing remote sites), web deployment, error highlighting, an office 2010 like interface and some others

In the past, I have used Notepad++ when I was coding in Windows. Now that I am using Linux for my production station, I use Geany which is a much better solution in my book.

I never use WYSIWYG editors as they tend to produce bloated code. Better to actually learn to code properly.

I am looking for a visual editor to work with my ctp files.
My website is created in CakePHP, with the Model/View/controller structure. I also use elements and layouts as additional entities for creating my pages. I can use either PC or MAC, so open to whichever program that fits my needs the best.

I currently use Aptana (PC) to edit my .ctp files (& css files) but I want to see if there is a program with a visual editor as well, one that won't bloat the code - I like and respect clean coding.

I have tried to open my .ctp files in Dreamweaver, Coffeecup, PageBreeze, BestAddressHTML, Elipse, Zend Studio - but they won't open - "Application not Found".

I am searching Google using the terms "visual editor for ctp files" or "php website editor" but haven't found an editor that will open my .ctp files. Any suggestions for better search terms is appreciated!

I respect the open source knowledge that is shared in these forums, so I ask if anyone knows of a visual editing program that might fit my needs. I am OK with editing the code straight, but my website is so big I need a quicker way to code. (http://www.eyekons.com if the source code would help, I tried to attach a .ctp file to this message and it said it isn't allowed - Q? is it something with my .ctp files?)

Thanks, and keep up the good coding everyone! The web world is pretty cool!
Amy

Komodo Edit is obviously the best! :-)

Hi,

Try PDT(PHP Development Toolkit) by Eclipse.
Download from here http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/downloads/


Get more professional setting/configuration against you project base such as
1) Go to menu -> Windows -> Preferences
Lot more configuration options waiting there. Check it & customized your editor such as
1) Debugger
2) Define the Build path
3) Define PHP Libraries

And a lot more... its worth to try this editor

Does either Komodo or Eclipse have a visual editor with the program?

I quite like Netbeans, it takes a little to get your head around the layout but as with anything, familiarity with your editor inevitably will will result in increased productivity.
