Eclipse PHP IDE

Filed under: Programming — Mihai @ 12:06 am

I’m interested in what do you use for development. What’s your preferred IDE ?
I use Eclipse for Java development and for PHP I switched from PHPEclipse to PHPIDE which is developed by Eclipse and Zend. You can download phpide from Zend.

Eclipse is an open source platform-independent software framework for delivering what the project calls “rich-client applications”, as opposed to “thin client” browser-based applications. So far this framework has typically been used to develop Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), such as the Java IDE called Java Development Toolkit (JDT) and compiler that comes as part of Eclipse (and which are also used to develop Eclipse itself). from Wikipedia: Eclipse (Software)

  2. Well, mainly because it’s a Eclipse Project. Also i have read on a blog (can’t find the link) a few arguments including debug support. Also phpide is under full development but phpeclipse last version is from April.
    I don’t thing there is nothing wrong with phpeclipse it’s just a personal preference.

  3. I think that Eclipse with plugins and extensions is more useful for me. I just change the Eclipse’s perspective and have a new lookup for code.

  4. Yes, Eclipse is a really good IDE with a lot of plugins (I also use Subclipse for SVN integration).
    By the way, I found the blog post that I was talking about.
