Anything Windows specific is automatically ruled out for me, and out of the big Java-based IDEs (which seem to make up like 99% of the cross-platform IDEs) Netbeans has been working best for me. Eclipse PHP has also been "growing" on me recently.

Gedit/Kate/Vim/Notepad++ are handy for minor things, but I would go insane very quickly if I were stuck using them full time for my larger projects :)


What a n00b. Vim r00lz!!11!


VIM +1 I just love the GUI.

Have any of you guys checked out phpStorm yet??

It's from the same people as Resharper so if you've used that for .NET development I'm sure you'll like this.

It's commercial but very nice.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to mention that it's cross platform.

Download here: http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/

I use Netbeans (for PHP) if I'm developing something locally, gives me all I'm after.

If I'm editing a page over (S)FTP, I have WinSCP configured to automatically open PHP pages in Notepad++. I used to edit them in the internal equivalent of notepad :P

cPanel editor. I know, it doesn't have many features. But it opens with a click of a button, highlights my syntax, and forces me to work on my indentation.

Chalk up another one to NuSphere! I love the ease of use, highlighting and built in Shells.

I must be missing something because I just can't see why I would need anything more than a good text editor for php development. I wanted to keep an open mind, so I downloaded Netbeans. Although I've only spent a few minutes with it, I can already say I hate it! It's slower than molasses and their example projects are spaghetti with meatballs! Of course, that doesn't mean that all code developed with it will be poor quality, but it isn't a positive sign either.

Textwrangler is all I need. It's fast, highlights code, and doesn't get in my way.

NetBeans is nice for organizing large projects, function lookup, and some immediate error feedback. Generally with something of the size of NetBeans, you'd boot it up when you get to work and quit when you leave. It has a lot of extras that developers don't care for, like the Java GUI Builder, the pre-existing projects and templates (which are often crap), etc. But most developers wouldn't be using an existing IDE project, as it probably isn't a decent enough framework to help. Imo, a major appeal of NetBeans is that it is a major player in the Java world, and is nice for Java programmers who are already familiar with it. That being said, like we preach in Java, if you can't program in Notepad, NetBeans isn't going to help.

I use PHP Designer. For what I do, it is wonderful.

I used to use Dreamweaver before but I didn't like it.

Notepad++ on Windows, Gedit on Linux.

I've tried Eclipse but it just seemed like too much stuff I didn't use and I found myself opening my trusty Gedit again.

I may check out Netbeans though, I recall I liked it when I was doing Java.

I've also tried a Linux editor called Bluefish, it was ok but was missing some basic features I like to have. It's documentation was also(at the time I downloaded it) mostly for an older version of the software and the UI had changed some so it made it more difficult to start using. I gave up on it after a couple weeks.
