Since I’ve started tinkering with PHP, I’ve been using a plain text editor to code up my pages. As I’ve mentioned before, I use Eclipse for Java development, so I was psyched to see that there actually is a PHP plugin called PHPeclipse.
This thing looks like it’s the real deal. It includes code insight dropdowns, syntax highlighting, debugging, and the ability to control Apache and MySQL from within Eclipse. Pretty cool if you ask me.
