Which programming IDE for Web development?
« on: October 12, 2011, 03:11:34 AM »
Can anyone recommend an IDE for PHP, MySQL, HTML(5), CSS and Javascript (that supports GitHub)?

Something you've been / you are using yourself.

I'm currently looking at PhpStorm and Netbeans but I not a big fan of Software that uses Java for it's GUI ;(

The only (free) alternative you didn't mention is IMHO Eclipse, but that also has a Java UI :D

Visual Studio can do all you mention (some parts requiring a plugin) and doesn't have a Java UI, but the version you'd need isn't free, AFAICS. :(

Aptana could be an alternative, too. But I read a lot of really bad comments about it (slow, buggy)...

Regarding Visual Studio: PHP only via e.g. VS.PHP and for plugins in general (e.g. github) you can't use the express version so that will be quite expensive.

Btw. does anyone really use MS Visual Studio (Pro / Ultimate) with VS.PHP and can share his opinion if it's worth?

Tia,

VS.PHP also supports running in the "Visual Studio 2010 shell", so it's not necessary to actually have a purchased version of Visual Studio.

Note: I haven't used VS.PHP so this isn't any kind of endorsement - I'm just saying that it's not necessary to own a non-Express version of Visual Studio in order to use VS.PHP.

How recent are those comments? If over 1.5 years, then disregard them, as then Eclipse was slow and buggy, because of, amongst things, migration to Vista/Win7.
Current Eclipse (based) IDE's (3.7.x) are much better and quite very stable.

Eh, what? I always had the impression it was slow due to being Java based.
