The results of the 2007 IDE poll are in !

Following a two-weeks poll, a first for the community site, the results for the development environment used by PHP-GTK developers are in.

Results for the sprint 2007 IDE poll on php-gtk.eu

Unsurprisingly, Eclipse and Zend Studio come ahead of the IDE pack (most PHP developers seem to favor the Zend-led Eclipse PDT over alternative plugins), with a major difference over the smaller players (from 25% for Zend Studio down to 4% for the next choice) Surprises are elsewhere:

  • non-integrated editors, like Context, Bluefish, Weaverslave, and similar programmer editors rank second, at about the same level as Zend Studio
  • the comparatively less well known French IDE PHPEdit is the third most used IDE in the pack
  • the brand new Delphi for PHP from Codegear (Borland), although designed and sold as a web RAD for PHP enters at the same rank as generic IDEs like Komodo and Dev-PHP-IDE

See the full results. We'll see what the numbers will tell us next year.

we are waiting

for a good editor based on php-gtk. We have been working on some componant about this editor. A good editor may contain :
- a class browser,
- some code hints,
- multiple window,
- source code hightlight,
- search, replace text,
- syntax checking,

we can do all that items ; i have built some of them ; some more difficults items are :
- debugging,
- project management with local or remote sites,

Tulip IDE is a good target but unusable with php-gtk2. Source code is not easy to read.
