I'm using EditPlus http://editplus.com/
However, I have head about Zend Studio for many times and even using it
from time to time, but it is too big for most of my tasks.

Sincerelly,

You might also check out Komodo. (and work on leaving the bit that
you're replying to when posting instead of snipping it all.)

Do any of the IDE's offer Intellisense?

If you mean do they point out mistakes, yes, most do. If that's not
what you meant, what's Intellisense?

(better quoting, but not quite. Remember to snip .sigs and that to
which you are not replying)


By Intellisense, I mean:

1. When you type fopen(.., it opens up a pop-up window in the editor
showing you the signature of the function.

2. If you've defined a class and some methods, when you instantiate
that class, it knows the type of the object, so when you do a

MyClass $obj = new MyClass('arg');
$obj->

it shows the pop-up again with the members and the public interface of
the class MyClass.

3. While typing mysql_conne and then some short-cut keyboard key, it
completes the token and replaces it with mysql_connect.
Does any IDE offer such features?

Again yes, both do.


Hmmm...how could that be done in PHP, where variables are typeless?

It can only know by the name of the class. It ain't perfect by any
means. It can be "fooled". You still have to know what you're doing.


I *think* he may have been referring to this line of yours:

MyClass $obj = new MyClass('arg');

Since PHP is loosely typed, the "MyClass" preceding $obj is bad syntax.

And, if that's not the case, then @Chung Leong: The IDE keeps track
of which class you assign to the variable. Zend Studio is even capable
of doing this for assignments from a function call:

You couldn't do it with 100% accuracy, but if you're advanced enough to
do OOP, then chances are your methods are returning the same type. The
visual studio PHP plugin does this, and it is quite accurate.

If you like visual studio, i suggest getting the VS.php plugin, its
very nice. Provides the same features that are built in for c/c++ in
the msvs ide. It has a few idiosyncracies, but is otherwise very nice.

There is also Eclipse, which provides good PHP support (intellisense,
syntax as you type), too, also through a plugin.

The function definition must have a docblock that indicates the
return value, though:

/**
* @return MyClass
*/
function getMyClass()
{
return new MyClass();
}

$obj = getMyClass();
$obj->[ZDE pops up a list of public methods from MyClass]

Very useful. :-)

Aha, now it makes sense.

I'm a NuSphere PhpED (http://www.nusphere.com) addict :)
PhpEd increased my productivity tremendously. After evaluating leading
PHP-IDEs I decided for PhpEd because of its very intuitive handling and
a fantastic support, helping me before & after purchasing the product.
I just switched to PhpEd within 1 hour (Flash-Demo helped a lot) - the
first remote-debugging & profiling session was running in just 5
minutes because of the excellent Handbook. The DB-Client saves me time
every day, now. Any other features can be found in many PHP-IDEs - on
PhpEd they are implemented that perfectly, that you can feel that this
product was made by developers for developers.

I tried Zend Studio and I don't like it. It's overly bloaty, and VERY
difficult to uninstall.

Besides, having mucked around with IDEs under other languages, I have to say
that I find most IDEs lacking.

I use Emacs these days for nearly everything.

If I have to spend inordinate amounts of time setting up the IDE, setting up
the code for debugging, and then single-stepping through it, etc, I find I
could've always found the problems much faster by inserting plain-old print
statements.
