I've said it before (in other topics) and I say it again:

Aptana Studio is really great for PHP development, providing features such as intellisense/auto-complete/code-suggest, which makes you able to work faster! :) Another great feature is code-snippets, aren't you tired of writing get and set methods for you private class members? Aptana! :)


I agree, Aptana is great.

NETBEANS with xdebug .

It is just tricky to get xdebug to work, but when you get xdebug to work with NETBEANS then it is the perfect IDE for PHP, it supports multiple languages like Java,Groovy,PHP , C\C++

and it is totally free

KUDOS for NETBEANS.

I love it :D

I love PHPEdit. I got a student license. It is wonderful, amazing at what it does, and has a beautiful UI.

Here at my work, I am using Dreamweaver for rapid development.
But for debugging and more specific codes, I use Notepad++.
I love to hard-code and I am also a bracket-conscious so I use Notepad++ or just only Notepad (if my IDEs are not available).

I'm currently using Aptana Studio 3; it's brilliant, providing all of the functionality I need and more. I personally prefer it to Notepad for my larger projects, I don't use notepad for more than small Javascript experiments and editing static HTML.

I've heard lots of good things about Netbeans, so I'm going to try that out as soon as I have the time!

I used a combination of netbeans and notepad++ for the longest time, but I've recently (back in May) switched over to jetbrains phpStorm.

I'd have to agree with E_Geek I'm not going back either.

O.

Visual Studio 2010 with VS.PHP plugin !
Buy the Plugin and download the VS2010 Shell for free, get Ankh plugin for SVN connectivity (also free) and VisualSVN Server (also free) to serve your own SVN repository and you truly own a Solid IDE
For me this is the Only way to go with somewhat complex Projects/Solutions

PHPEdit is also nice, and free, i still use it sometimes to quickly edit adhoc files
Codelobster is also still in use as is Notepad++ for all the 'quick fix'/'out of svn' editing.
But I think the latter three are not in any way qualified go for IDE (see Thread title)


I never really got the hang of the Zend Studio, although it looks like it has so much potential it is just not for me. (also it is 3x more expensive as the vs.php plugin)

Sorry but VS.PHP is crap, and it's also not free.

There's actually some new PHP Tools for Visual Studio. However, that is also crap.

I love Visual Studio and wish to God that I could use it for PHP but alas no matter what comes along the support is still utterly shit. It makes me sad.

I've succumbed to Rudi's earlier suggestion of PHPStorm, after using Notepad++ to development my application for a while. There's some plusses and miniuses to this transition:
Plusses
  • PHP Docs show up in a nice nested window to the side
  • Typehinting
  • Easy navigation of my directory structure
  • Files are underlined in red when there are fatal errors
  • A lot of customisable options (can't stress this enough - it's great)
  • Automagically integrated with SVN
  • Probably a lot of other things I've yet to find

Minuses
  • Finally realised why I should DocBlock all my code (two weeks, finally done with the Controllers)
  • Doesn't recognise global constants defined in config files that include "this" file
  • Class attributes that are object instances don't get typehinting if they are instantiated by a different method (I'm probably asking a bit much here though)
  • "Inspect code" is very handy, but it often throws a shitload of warnings that I simply don't care about, because they aren't a problem. This isn't a case of bad coding, it's either because the bad code is in a 3rd party library, or that PHPStorm simply doesn't recognise a method/variable due to the previous two points. Currently, my code base has about 3000 warnings, none of which are a problem.
  • Can't get the application to run within PHPStorm rather than a browser (most likely I'm doing it wrong)

I have to say though, I won't go back to Notepad++ now. Most of what I needed was in NPP, but the DocBlock stuff and the typehinting is invaluable, and speeds up my development time by a large margin. Now I just have to find $100 amongst my limited budget, so I can keep using it hehe :)

No love in this entire thread for Geany?

Fast, free, multi-platform and addons that are actually used for php. Integrated terminal window for quick access to command line database, for those of us who hate phpmyadmin.

Best feature, hitting f5 will run your code. This opens a new window with all the outputted HTML code. Great for quick checks to see if it's running how you would expect, or an error.

Quote

Some basic features of Geany:

Syntax highlighting
Code folding
Symbol name auto-completion
Construct completion/snippets
Auto-closing of XML and HTML tags
Call tips
Many supported filetypes including C, Java, PHP, HTML, Python, Perl, Pascal
Symbol lists
Code navigation
Build system to compile and execute your code
Simple project management
Plugin interface
