Hi All,

I created a WAMP server and playing around with Magento. I have Toad for mySQL and some other tools to make up my dev environment. I’m just wondering what others are using for PHP development? I can see zend studio is used which I have not yet installed, are there other editors or suites that have a good rating?

Any feedback is appreciated

Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/) is a nice IDE for editing. You can do funky things like click on a function call at it will take you to the actual function definition in the code. It’s also free.

Coda is what I am using at the moment (for OS X). Very simple to use and includes FTP transfer. Costs about $80.

Dreamweaver. The industry standard although a bit bloated.

You can try Eclipse PDT (PHP Development Tools) and Aptana Studio. Both are Eclipse based IDE for PHP. Aptana is more than that since it also supports Javascript and Ruby. Because they are based on Eclipse, you can enhance them with any (compatible) Eclipse plugin such as Subclipse or Suversive shoud you decide to use SVN to track you code changes.

I used Eclipse PDT to develop my custom VIES module.

Notepad...No seriously (someone had to say it :b), I use ConTEXT and a test server, I used Komodo for a while but it was...buggy.  ConText is not a full blown IDE but it’s clean and efficient and has everything I need for editing from css to Assembly.

You also mentioned database access tools in your first post.
My favorite is DB-Visualizer. Costs about 100 Euro but works with all jdbc databases.

Some other tools worth to mention:
Servant Salamander to access the file system and the server via scp (remembering the good old Norton Commander?)
BeyondCompare to compare test-environment-changes against production code

regards,

Mike
