Review: NuSphere PHPEd


I think it's quite amazing how far the PHP and MySQL combination of apps have come in the past 2-3 years. They both started from humble beginnings, yet today they are arguably the most popular scripting and database combination for new programmers to learn. In this article, John takes a look at PHPEd and talks about its interface, installer, and his overall opinion of it as an IDE for developing PHP scripts.

Review: NuSphere PHPEd
(Page 1 of 4 )

I think it's quite amazing how far the PHP and MySQL combination of apps have come in the past 2-3 years. They both started from humble beginnings, yet today they are arguably the most popular scripting and database combination for new programmers to learn: time to market for websites built with PHP and MySQL is minimal, and because they were both released under the GPL (General Public Licence), they are completely free for use on Unix/Linux systems.

One of the stumbling blocks for newbies, however, is the PHP syntax and its myriad of function calls. I remember when I was learning PHP and MySQL, how literally every thirty seconds I would reach for my copy of "PHP and MySQL Web Development". I eventually got the hang of PHP’s syntax, but I really wish there were more PHP IDE’s around back then.

Today I'm going to take a look at NuSphere's PHPEd. PHPEd is a Windows-only integrated development environment for creating PHP scripts combined with MySQL data basing functionality. It comes with built-in syntax highlighting, the complete PHP manual, and extremely timesaving debugging and code-watch features.
