(There's prolly a topic already here, but I couldn't find it
Don't want to start any wars, but I'd really like to get opinions on the various IDEs and editors that are useful for Web code. At the moment, I'm using Komodo Edit
(the IDE version seems aimed at team development), CodeLobster
, Rapid PHP 2010
, Code Chameleon
, Coffee Cup HTML Editor
, just to name a few.
Well ... I'm using Komodo, primarily, and dabbling with the others as time permits. Probably my all-time favorite was HomeSite, but Nick Bradbury went in anther direction, so updates and new capabilities are no longer available. The others previously mentioned all have certain, mostly different, strengths and weaknesses.
What I'd like to see here is what other tools are used by the DC folk, and why they prefer them. It simply is not possible for an individual to be aware of, much less test, all such tools currently extant.
Yes, I've read a number of online reviews, but had no gauge as to the trustworthiness of the authors. And the best part about some of the tools I've tried was
. Since there are a number of developers on DC (Gee, who'da guessed
?!?, and since their products tend to be above average (based upon NANY products, as well as looking at their Web pages), I thought to bring the question here.
It's understood that answers to such questions tend to be subjective, just like politics and choosing a vehicle
, and thus may not be as appropriate for others as for the reviewer.
I'd really like to find the Philosopher's Stone
of coding environments, but that's prolly a reach too far
