List of PHP editors

When you start to learn PHP programming you will need an editor to write your code with and there are plenty of them out there for you to choose from and use.

In this tutorial I am going to list some of the most commonly used PHP editor tools and some information about them. Hopefully any new coders can then try out some of them and decide on what is best for them.


First of all NotePad++ is completely freeware .

Some Features :

  • Auto-completion (language and file)
  • Bookmarks
  • Syntax highlighting (and brace and indent highlighting)
  • Regular expression find and replace
  • Split screen editing
  • Zooming
  • Spell checker (built in but requires Aspell)
  • Hex editor (plug-in available, no longer included in standard installation as of v4.8.2)
  • Tabbed document interface
  • FTP Browser (plug-in included in standard installation)
  • Support for various file formats including unicode.

Edit Plus

EditPlus is a text editor, HTML editor and programmers editor for Windows. While it can serve as a good Notepad replacement, it also offers many powerful features for Web page authors and programmers.

Some Features :

  • EditPlus supports powerful and customizable syntax highlighting for the a lot of programming launguages.
  • FTP commands for uploading your local files to FTP server or for editing remote files directly.
  • Auto-completion
  • Line number, ruler, column selection, powerful search and replace, multiple undo/redo, spell checker, customizable keyboard shortcuts, and more.

Eclipse with pdt

The PDT project provides a PHP Development Tools framework for the Eclipse platform. This project encompasses all development components necessary to develop PHP and facilitate extensibility. It leverages the existing Web Tools Project in providing developers with PHP capabilities.

Some Features :

  • Intuitive and easy to learn
  • Seamless integration with the Web Tools project
  • Adherence to Eclipse standards
  • Extensibility
  • Continuous support of PHP developments

There are literally hundreds of editors out there for coding in PHP and what works for you is a matter of personal choice.
I have focused on Windows platform editors here, however there are many great applications on other platforms. is a good place to start if you are not running on Windows and there are some further applications for each platform here that I implore you to explore.

Happy Coding……
