Use whatever you like - I think notepad++ is acceptable as anything that can highlight your code and do some basic completion is. Your main working area will probably be browser anyway.

Thank you for the reply...does notepad++ has the intellesence?
jemz — 2012-10-20T12:07:44-04:00 — #4
what about eclipse...is that okay to use?

It all really comes down to personal preference...
I've been using Komodo IDE for a while, I quite like it, but there a few you might like to try:
Picking an editor is a bit like picking a car, you try to find one that looks good and has everything under the hood that you need, ultimately though you should test drive a few to make sure you pick the right one. (Except it's a lot easier to switch if you're not happy with your initial choice )

Hi AussieJohn, Thank you for the reply and for the advice...Okay i give a try on this IDE.
Are these also can handle any language like PHp,CSS,HTML...?
- Komodo Edit
- Aptana Studio
- JetBrains WebStorm

Pretty sure all of those will handle multiple languages quite well.

Is it okay to ask. what are you using now?
gilmeragency — 2012-10-21T13:13:32-04:00 — #10
I generally like something that has the following:
-live view (though not as important since most of your work will be in the browser)
-support for JQuery
-Integrated Debugging tools
-Built-in Console and Terminal
Dreamweaver, for instance has "code navigator" which is essentially its version of "firebug"; and even though it is significantly less intuitive (as are a number of development tools in this IDE), the functionality is still there. I also like Aptana because it has many of the features I just mentioned. Additionally, the coding space is just plain pretty.

yeah i like aptana too...but the problem is i don't know how to run the php files in firefox it always shows blank page..but i did a couple of research on how to configure aptana in wamp server,but still doesn't work...any idea?
gilmeragency — 2012-10-21T14:01:06-04:00 — #12
Have you tried changing your port number? By default (I think), WAMP Server listens on port 80. But I have no idea concerning what that means regarding what port you should use for Aptana. Have you tried the PHP forum?
jemz — 2012-10-21T14:20:37-04:00 — #13
Nope...but if i will open wamp and then i will go to localhost then select the folder,it will load now my php files and display in firefox.but what i want is that i want only Aptana to launch my php files and display in firefox,so that it would not be hustle for me to navigate in wamp anymore.

Hi, i just want to ask some help about using aptana,how did you do when you have a html file then you put php code on it,it will generate error something missing "<" ,..or this is not be done in aptana studio it should be php file then html code.
aussiejohn — 2012-11-16T15:21:51-05:00 — #15
If you want to mix HTML and PHP together then you should use a PHP file so that the server knows to pass the PHP code to the PHP interpreter.
// Some PHP stuff here
<html xml:lang="en-au" lang="en-au">
// Some PHP stuff here
