Codelobster PHP Edition – Free PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript Editor

The text editor is the most important tool for the job of every website developer. Therefore, the availability of quality text editor is of great importance for the effective operation of the developer.

We will not dwell on paid editors, but I want to focus on a free editor – Codelobster PHP Edition, developed by the company Codelobster Software. It can do a great job with its rich functionality and ease of use.

I would like to briefly focus on the most important advantages of the program. In the first place I would point out that the code highlights can be combined for different programming languages in one file. For example, if in a file you have JavaScript and PHP code, both codes will be highlighted for the correct language. Juxtaposition of elements on the page with the code is very simple using HTML / CSS inspector on the type of Firebug.

Editor offers auto completion of code for HTML, PHP, CSS and JavaScript. In PHP you can see a full list of methods for a given project. Code auto completion includes HTML5 and CSS3. Pressing the F1 key provides a very convenient way to get context-sensitive help for a function or tag.

You can run PHP code gradually using the built-in PHP debugger. You can view the values of all variables on the line.

Editor supports direct work with remote files using the FTP protocol.

There is also a portable version of the editor that does not require installation.

Besides all this, there are many other useful things in the editor such as selecting blocks, collapsing, navigate through the descriptions of the functions, review the structure of project files, preview in browser, bookmarks and more.

Surprisingly for a simple editor, unless standard features Codelobster PHP Edition offers a fully functional SQL Manager through which you can perform all the most important actions in the database. You can edit the tables in the database and execute SQL queries.

Codelobster PHP Edition offers plugins for working with PHP frameworks like CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Symfony, Yii, and Laravel.
