Good IDE to use?
#1
As many of you probably already know, I do quite a bit of PHP programming, as well as additonal programming in some other languages. Currently I do all of my PHP development on a live server since my localhost tends to screw things up at times. Notepadd++ and filezilla are all that I have to work with at this point though.

I've been considering getting an IDE to help with things such as auto-indenting code, etc..., but I'm not really sure which one will work best for PHP. Any suggestions?

As far as I've read, since PHP is a scripting language... and doesn't need compiling from the editor. So really you just need your text editor to do all the work. And for PHP, your server. But Netbeans also includes support for PHP, and is what I use for Java.

Yeah, what I'm currently using is n++ and filezilla, and of course my server. The main thing n++ lacks is an easy way to auo-indent text. I keep forgetting to indent when I write code, and it shows when people read my code.

To be honest, I don't think there are many IDE's that auto indent your code. I think that would be rather complex to code, and as far as I know, Netbeans doesn't do it either (I don't actually forget to indent my code, surprisingly)

Back when I programmed C++, there was a command line tool that would do it for you. I guess that was the kind of thing I was looking for, but if it's not there, it's time to change my coding habits instead. Tongue

Heh, I haven't used netbeans that much though. Maybe it does have that option, just haven't noticed it.

Notepad++ actually does have it as well, but it apparently doesn't work with PHP.

There may be plugins to do it. Look for one.

I think I did at one point, and I'm not sure why I never found something. I'll probably look again tomorrow and see.

I try to ident my code when coding in HTML, but the default MyBB editors are horrible because they're browser based. So when you try to press tab, it leaves the editor. You have to use the spacebar. Annoying...  :Smile

It's useful for small edits I suppose. Sometimes I'll just copy/paste the text into notepad++ if I intend on doing a lot of editing though. Notepad++ is one great program.

I've accidentally done editing in notepad before, and for whatever reason notepad puts headers or something in the files that keeps them from being executed properly by a PHP interpreter. That's always annoying.
