Some tools for PHP developers

I am giving you some names of tools used for PHP with their features. Hope it helps you choose the best suited for you.


It will not be an exaggeration if I say SublimeText, a text editor for code, markup, and prose is the best Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for PHP developers. It reduces the necessity of mouse and you can code just using only keystrokes. It is complete cross-platform software available on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. SublimeText provides Python based API and extreme customization capability for Graphical User Interfaces like Menu and snippets, macros, completions even more. Its Command Palette holds infrequently used functionality and you can open files with only a fewer keystrokes, and also lets instantly jump to symbols,


Directus is a Mysql Development Tool for PHP. Directus is an open source database Graphical User Interface (GUI) for managing MySQL Database. And it doesn't require any extra training on PHP. 


PHPDebugbar lets you profile data easily from any application and integrate on any project. It can handle AJAX requests and lets you check details about current route, see the preview configurations.


phpDesigner 8 is one of the best tools for PHP. It helps developers to improve their coding. Along with PHP, it supports JavaScript, CSS3 and HTML5. 


NuSphere is the best Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which is also the hope of PhpEd. This is best for PHP, HTML and much more. It comes with an awesome debugging tool.


PHP-CPP is a PHP extensions library. It is easy to use lets you add special behavior to classes. You can also use the magic methods that switch from PHP to C++. It is pretty handy for C++ beginners.


MINK is the best browser emulator tool. It lets you implement without GUI though consoles.
