New kid NetBeans giving tough time to other PHP IDEs out there…

Filed under: netbeans — James @ 3:16 am

It seems, NetBeans has been making waves (or rather tsunami?) in the PHP world. According to the article “The Big PHP IDE Test“, NetBeans, a new kid to the PHP land is found to provide almost all the features of established commercial PHP IDEs like Aptana Pro ($99), Zend Studio ($399) at the best cost possible ($0)  :-) .

Great news and thank you NetBeans team for making the “Only IDE you need” available to PHP folks with many advanced features.

  2. Hem, not so fast.
    NetBeans for PHP is a nice and cost-free tool but I don’t think it’s like a tsunami. There are (still) many weaknesses in it and I miss some comfortable abilities like in other IDEs (e.g. EasyEclipse for PHP). For example, I’ve tried to turn on the Eclipse-profile but it doesn’t work. In addition there are to few options to configure it. Starting a new project one have to select an index-file but I can’t tell NetBeans the correct URL (apache alias) of an index-file. Why have to select the location of that file in directory-path? So I have to adjust the apache-alias appropriate.

  4. Watches, breakpoints (though, I haven’t figured out conditional breakpoints, if they are there), callstack and local variables work as you would expect (though watches/variables sometimes refuse to populate larger vars, I think this is xdebug config related). In addition, Netbeans supports arbitrary breakpoint groupings; these can be enabled and disabled as a group — very neat. developer for android
