Hello,

I am fairly new to php (only been doing it for a year), and I am fairly new to ubuntu aswell. I was wanting to get suggestions from all of you on what the best software to code php is with ubuntu? I am looking for a txt editer.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions :D

if you, as I, prefer a more lightweight texteditor http://www.geany.org/ is your choice

Use netbeans or eclipse IDE. They offer more than text editors do.

komodo. My favourite IDE. it is very light and fast compared to netbeans and eclipse.

Hi, As an alternative suggestion you might want to try kdevelop. -Silver Fox

Yeah, you're right: a text editor. Whichever one you like best. Which is a personal matter, the debating of which tends to blow up into a holy war. ;-)

PHP doesn't really need any particular special features, though most modern text editors will have syntax highlighting for it, which can be handy.

The default text editors for GNOME (gedit) and KDE (kate) are both fine, really.

As you start building projects that are bigger and more complex, an IDE helps tremendously. I don't use gedit/kate for any PHP work.

If you ask question like this (what is the best IDE, what is the best language) you are going to get 500 different answers. :)

Really, you are going to have to decide yourself. I would try Eclipse, Netbeans, Geany, Vim, etc. see how they work for you.

I tend to jump between geany and Aptana.
Aptana is good because it has a really good intelisense which when learning provides the developer with an idea of how many functions or options are available.

Learn Vim, it is the only editor I know of which can syntax hilight multiple languages embedded in the same file, like CSS, PHP and HTML.
