Full Version: PHP Editor

I am looking for a linux PHP (and preferably html but not necessarilly) editor with Dreamweaver style codehints. Syntax highlighting would also be a major plus. Something along the lines of vi but with codehints would be great. What I am looking for is something codehints. I would prefer freeware, but something that was inexpensive would be fine too.

P.S. Based on what I have seen of similar questions on other boards I am sorry about starting this thread, but I haven't been able to find a solution.

Quanta (now part of the KDe WebDev project) is excellent, as is Bluefish.

They cna be found at http://quanta.kdewebdev.org/ and http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/index.html respectively

Both have syntax highlighting for PHP,CSS,HTML and just about anything else you would care to mention - They both have syntax-hinting too (although it may not always be on by default). I prefer Quanta, but they are both excellent and far better than any editor I hhave found for windows (and I have been looking quite hard recently for work).

Anjuta can be an alternative if you are using GNOME..

Have you considered Dreamweaver? (It seems obvious but hey, you never know) I have enjoyed it immensely. If there were a Linux version I would just use that. Sadly, they don't seem to believe it's worth the investment yet. Although with so many free programs available for linux already, I can see how it could be tough to talk someone into investing in a retail editor.

Ick - Dreamweaver. Internet Software Developers do NOT use WYSIWYG wink.gif (the design/layout people have dreamweaver though)... Perhaps if it were just a text-editor...

I quite like Crimson Editor for Windows, which isn't OSS but is free.

I suppose that is probably true. To be honest I rarely if ever use the WYSIWYG anymore. You can always just switch to code view and it essentially becomes a text editor. It just has so many other cool features. Codehints, reference books, code completion, intelligent syntax highlighting... I'm sure there are more but those are the main ones I use.
