Please recommend a php editor for windows.December 4, 2010 at 8:05 am #71002yoboubdirMember
My personal choice is Aptana StudioDecember 4, 2010 at 10:17 am #71008Sumeet ChawlaMember
If you are looking for an open source one, you can go for Netbeans. Its pretty good and I use it so am saying from experience.December 5, 2010 at 9:43 am #70925jcrpMember
Id say Notepad++ it is… I like it versatility. Its helps you learn the markups as it doesnt spoon feed you.December 6, 2010 at 3:37 am #70870Rob MacKayParticipant
I use Notepad++ but I like Eclipse and Netbeans I know is good, just not had chance to try it yet… :)December 6, 2010 at 11:47 am #70850CoolAsCarlitoParticipant
My recommendation is phpDesigner 7.December 6, 2010 at 2:57 pm #70753chrisssMember
phpDesigner is pretty good, full ftp support for editing directly on the server.
It also has live error checking of code because it runs php in the background. Pretty good for incase you mis a semi-colon on the end of a line.
Shame you have to pay for the newest version though, I think the older version is free.December 28, 2010 at 8:33 am #67546
Based on suggestions received here, I’ve been using notepad++ for writing php, html and css. There is one thing I wanted to ask to anybody who can help –
Hitting the shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+Q in a .php file opened in notepad++ always comments out the selected code in this style.
/* code here */
The above style is applied by the notepad++ even if I hit the shortcut key in html codes which are outside . Is there a way by which I can comment out the html code using a shortcut key in the html style in the .php file.December 28, 2010 at 3:57 pm #68487clokey2kParticipant
Not that I have found.
Best bet is to record a Macro, save it, and then create a short-cut for it. I just tried it and it works well.
Just record: ‘HOME’ <!– ‘END’ –> That will comment out the single line (not the paragraph)
Record another brave macro to delete the first 4 characters and the last 3 and your set!December 28, 2010 at 5:12 pm #68477February 14, 2011 at 6:43 am #60635clodParticipant
I use free Portable PHP IDE Codelobster PHP Edition.
It have all possibilities like requiring payment IDE, but it really smaller and faster.
It have pleasant interface and plugins for all most popular frameworks.
Especially i like CSS inspector which shows all styles belonging to
selected element which can be edited at once in proper CSS file.February 14, 2011 at 6:52 am #60619lyleyboyMember
Give CodeLobster a try. I use that all day every day.
