Preferred development tools?
Purely a matter of taste – and a chance for everyone to weigh-in with their own opinion without anyone being “wrong” – what’re your preferred development tools when dealing with PHP, and more specifically, with WordPress / bbPress code?
In my day-job I live and breath Java code and use JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA, which itself doesnt support PHP out of the box but a sister product from JetBrains (was called “WebIDE” and now I think is “PHPStorm”) does an exceptionally good job of supporting development in PHP. I was also pleasantly surprised and find myself occasionally using NetBeans v6.8 too. Both development environments allow very fast cross-referencing of methods. Both tools mirror local development remotely – handling the upload/download of changes.
If I’m not in an IDE, then it’s TextWrangler on my Mac or UltraEdit on a PC, uploads handled using FileZilla.
