I use PHPDesigner . It's really cool, with syntax highlighting for PHP as
well as other languages. It's got options like running PHP code and
connecting to web server if you ca configure it. As for a newbie, it's
support for PHP commands/functions is awesome. Try it out.

I think you will find a long list. Syntax Highlighting is a very nice
feature, auto indentation, etc.

I use Linux so am using many KDE tools such as the Quanta web
development environment which has the Kate Editor embedded. Very nice.

I use Eclipse with PHP extensions.

http://www.Eclipse.org
http://www.zend.com/phpide/

Open source and free. It does have syntax highlighting and a ton of
other features.

I also sometimes use notepad for quick edits.

I realize that asking which IDE is best is usually very subjective and
usually ends up as a Holy IDE war response. So here is my battle report.

The PHP Designer you are talking about is not the current version of PHP
Designer. The newest version was just released last week. It is called
'PHP Designer 2007'. This new release comes in two flavors: a free one
and a commercial one. The commercial one is actually has the same
functionality of the last free version. Now you will have to pay $69.00
or 55 EUR. I can not recomand this IDE anymore unless you have the 'PHP
Designer 2006 Beta' release. That said it still does not have an
interactive debugger.

As a Java programmer I been using Eclipse for the last two and a half
years.. Now that I am learning PHP it was natural for me to use the
Eclipse PHP plugin. It is a new Eclipse project but the Zend support
people are really putting together a nice plugin.

I also use PHPEdit. I was able to get a free copy for personal use.
This is a nice IDE but the new versions seems to run slower than the
prior release.

So, no matter what answers you get for your question. You will have to
test out the IDE's yourself to see which one meets you own needs..

I use emacs; it has highlighting for all the languages I use (plus many,
many more), and it has a newsreader in it, so I don't even have to leave
my editor to post.

Test them all yourself ;) And get the one that makes you the most
productive... Imho all decent editors are already half ide's these days
that give you syntax highlighting, formatting, auto completion,
intellisense, ...

A good place to start: <http://www.wiki.cc/php/Editors/>

I've been using UltraEdit, Eclipse (tried phpeclipse and trustudio plugins),
(And a whole lot of others that i'm not going to mention...)

Today i use gvim everywhere (e-mail, usenet, scripting, ...).

I use UltraEdit under Windows and Vim and Zend Studio on OS X.
UltraEdit and Vim rock! I'm fairly new to Zend but I like it so far.

I use Dreamweaver also. It can make you see PHP code and HTML frame
simultaneously.

I used exclusively Notepad++ on Windows, Kate and elvis on Linux. Now I
use Eclipse more and more on both platforms - but lightweight editors
are still the best for some things.

If I can get access to the server with ssh I use vi also. Just familiar with
that and very useful features. If I need a Windows based editor I've liked
TextPad.

Homesite
http://www.adobe.com/products/homesite/

Some Addons to HomeSite
http://www.wilk4.com/asp4hs/php4hs.htm

Has the best color syntax for HTML with PHP because all the form tags
like <form>, <input>, <textarea, etc are colored orange and you can
easy find a form to edit.

I have also been using http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/ but has no
FTP Suport

You may want to take a look at Crimson Editor as well. I used to use
that for everything. Then I moved to Dreamweaver and it was nice .. but
for some reason it started to freeze my computer up when I did certain
operations .. never figured that out either .. I just stopped using it.
The only thing I miss is having my ftp client built into my editor.
But now that I'm getting into Flex Development .. I use solely Eclipse
for everything I do.

As for what is best ... that is personal opinion.

Hi

I use editplus.

Eclipse and Zend Studio, I tried, sounds like a sledgehammer to catch a
fly.

editplus does syntax highlighting, indentation, the basics.

it has a very small footprint on your hard disk

it respects your file extensions.

Did you take a look at the link you posted ?

Try http://sourceforge.net/projects/scintilla/
Click on the Download button, then go to the SciTE link.

The SciTE editor works great for a lot of different software develop-
ment packages. Quick, fast, easy to use, and easy to update the
function api lists (no waiting for some vendor to do such things).
