    I use notepad++ for most html/javascript work, and any quick PHP stuff. I have been using PHPStorm for larger PHP sites.

    For working with Javascript, though, the firebug plugin for Firefox is fantastic. Any JS heavy pages get debugged with this, not in an IDE.

          I second the vote for PSPad, which I use for most things, even though I have Dreamweaver, NetBeans, Notepad++, and many others--I am always checking out what's out there. Now maybe it's because I somehow found it early on and am used to it, but I also think that, having tried nearly everything else, I can objectively compare it others -- and if you like Notepad++, you're going to like PS Pad more. It has an FTP browser, command line, can handle and has text highlighting and formatting for any language, including your php, html, css, etc, has a code explorer, all kinds of text controls and conversions---it's got a LOT, more than things like NetBeans and Dreamweaver -- and lots of plugins you can get for it to do more.

          Of course, it also all depends on what you're doing. I will still use Dreamweaver, and sometimes I fire up Notepad++ for certain things it's better at. THe best bet is to become familiar with a number of editors to find out what they can do and where you might need them. And it is always best for beginners to start with a basic text editor like PSPad or Notepad++ then get into all the complexities and WYSWYG-ness of Dreamweaver etc..

    The best editor depends on how much experienced you are..

    For novices who just create html pages, for them Dreamweaver will be the best but for an experienced developer ,Dreamweaver is a piece of crap.

    For the sake of completion I must mention EmEditor. It has native support for 64-bit Windows, super-fast and can support pretty large files (a few gigs are like peanuts).

    I mostly use it for viewing large log files and as a companion editor. For example, if my primary editor is Eclipse, then I would also run EmEditor on the side as a secondary editor to do all the copy/pasting, text formatting, and other temporary placeholder tasks.

    I'm using Ubuntu and over the years I moved over to a console based editor - vim - which has been tweaked to meet my needs. For a Gui based editor, I like Eclipse and Netbeans. Depends on the type of development that I am building.

    The nice thing about using a console based editor is that I can disconnect from my server, and my session can still be running when I log back into it (with gnu screen) so I don't lose my place when I'm working for the day.

    It depends on the programming language. For HTML, CSS, JavaScript and quick hacking, Notepad++ is my first choice. For C#, Visual C# 2010. And for Java, Netbeans.

      Netbeans is IDE in true sense. It would give you project wide CSS selectors navigation, function hints for Java,PHP and to top it all jQuery which makes it so much handy.It also provides UI based database administration.

      I never went through customizing eclipse with plugins and using it. (except for setting up android adt). So can't speak for it.

    I started with
    * dreamweaver
    moved to
    * eclipse with phpeclipse (not PDT, dont like that, and hated aptana.)
    Tried out netbeans but it had too many issues to really use. (like having to choose between having remote debugging OR having smarty template editing.)

    now absolutely LOVE
    * PhpStorm

    but like schwarzes said in #22 "It really depends where your at."

    PhpStorm has Phenomenal error checking, better than you can believe possible. (if you need it.)

    It runs on linux, mac and windows.

    Remote debugging works with xdebug on remote machines. (if you need that.)

    But there is no WYSIWYG, if you want it, then maybe dreamweaver. But if you want to code in php or javascript, PhpStorm ROCKS!

      For an editor - you need to try them all. But prioritize them. Make this your new top priority! Put this at the TOP of your list !!!

      At this point you may be asking, "How about the important tasks at the top of the list already, that one never does?" Admittedly, there is a potential problem here.
      The trick is to pick the right sorts of projects for the top of the list. The ideal sorts of things have two characteristics, First, they seem to have clear deadlines (but really don't). Second, they seem awfully important (but really aren't). Luckily, life abounds with such tasks. In universities the vast majority of tasks fall into this category, and I'm sure the same is true for most other large institutions. Take for example the item right at the top of my list right now. This is finishing an essay for a volume in the philosophy of marketing. It was supposed to be done eleven months ago. I have accomplished an enormous number of important things as a way of not working on it. A couple of months ago, bothered by guilt, I wrote a letter to the editor saying how sorry I was to be so late and expressing my good intentions to get to work. Writing the letter was, of course, a way of not working on the article. It turned out that I really wasn't much further behind schedule than anyone else. And how important is this article anyway? Not so important that at some point something that seems more important won't come along. Then I'll get to work on it.


      Another example is book order forms. I write this in June. In October, I will teach a class on Marketology. The book order forms are already overdue at the book store. It is easy to take this as an important task with a pressing deadline (for you non-procrastinators, I will observe that deadlines really start to press a week or two after they pass.) I get almost daily reminders from the department secretary, students sometimes ask me what we will be reading, and the unfilled order form sits right in the middle of my desk, right under the wrapping from the sandwich I ate last Wednesday. This task is near the top of my list; it bothers me, and motivates me to do other useful but superficially less important things. But in fact, the book store is plenty busy with forms already filed by non-procrastinators. I can get mine in mid-Summer and things will be fine. I just need to order popular well-known books from efficient publishers. I will accept some other, apparently more important, task sometime between now and, say, August 1st. Then my psyche will feel comfortable about filling out the order forms as a way of not doing this new task.
      The observant reader may feel at this point that structured procrastination requires a certain amount of self-deception, since one is in effect constantly perpetrating a pyramid scheme on oneself. Exactly. One needs to be able to recognize and commit oneself to tasks with inflated importance and unreal deadlines, while making oneself feel that they are important and urgent. This is not a problem, because virtually all procrastinators have excellent self-deceptive skills also. And what could be more noble than using one character flaw to offset the bad effects of another?

      So make sure you don't procrastinate in installing new web-editors as it's very important that you get it to the top of the list in order to .. (finish it for me - I'm getting a drink)

    I am using Jetbrain's PhpStorm IDE which is a Java based application. It works on Windows, Mac and Linux. They have a Web version that is just Html, Javascript, CSS but since I code a lot with PHP the PhpStorm IDE adds that capability on top of the webstorm product.

    A lot of people are actually leaving Netbeans and switching to PhpStorm now. Six months ago I was coding entirely by hand in PsPad but my applications are just too complex to maintain that way and bug tracking is a nightmare so I went looking for an IDE and chose PhpStorm. Until then I never knew you could set watch points for php code debugging.

    For a beginner I would go with a visual web design software like dreamweaver, komodo or the like or just use a CMS like wordpress that way you don't have to do any editing of html or css.

    The text editors are for those that already understand html,css, php etc... or at least know it well enough to not need a visual editor.

    The more you build your web design skills the less you rely on the visual editors like dreamweaver. I personally have out grown dreamweaver and moved on to hand coding with PsPad and beyond to a full fledged IDE for web development.

    Somethings you just can't do strictly from a text based editor like PsPad and as your sites become more complex it is almost impossible to keep track of everything or debug without using a proper IDE.

    For IDE, depends on what language I'm programming in.

    If you only dev in java I recommend Netbeans, has multiple features, or JCreator is not so complete but is easy to use. If you dev in multiple language I recommend Dreamweaver.

    As per my view and experience Dreamweaver is more better than any other because n the "Design" mode I was able to do the entirety of the grunt work very easily to produce this simple page. Dreamweaver's automation handled the difficult parts; I simply had to define which zones on the image were going to be links and then specify where those links went.

    RubyMine and PyCharm are both awesome products if you are doing ruby or python work.

    Right now my editor of choice is Kate.

    Definitely vim the hotkeys are amazing... or notepad++ simple and quick! Dreamweaver and other heavy editors are slow. They can be useful if you're doing design, but I'm not a designer so no.

    I don't have a large criteria for coding software, but they're extremely important in my book:
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Code autocomplete/lookup (that isn't annoying)
    • Built in SFTP for quick updates
    • Version Control support (Git) is a bonus

    There are only two that I've felt comfortable with:
    • Dreamweaver (Windows)
    • Coda (Mac)

    I used netbeans but it was a resource hog on my Mac. Also used textwrangler heavily, but it didn't have any sort of autocomplete.

    There are times I would lose the flow in development simply because I forgot what order the needle/haystack was in strpos (explode has this in the opposite order.) or something else minor. If you're juggling several variables in your head the worst possible thing that could happen, bar external distractions, is to become distracted trying to remember the name of that function or the order of the arguments.
