Pros: This editor is packed with a lot of features to make coding easier and effective. Auto-completion feature enables users to quickly and efficiently write code in PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. A wide range of code completion listings make the whole coding process faster and easier, HTML5 and CSS3 support is also available.

Different types of codes are highlighted with different colors, making the code easier to understand and writing comfortable. It can be very useful in situations when combination of PHP, HTML, JavaScript or CSS codes are present in a single file.

The editor also has the ability to collapse the code, it can be useful when you do not want one section of code to distract you while you're writing the other one. The paired highlighting feature lets you highlight a tag and its attributes together so it is easier to edit the code.

There is also built-in browser preview to take a look at how your code is turning out in the browser, moreover there is a split window option that is helpful when you need to compare codes of different files.

This editor allows you to easily create PHP, CSS, HTML, SQL, XML or YAML files and start working on them. It comes with support for all famous CMS and frameworks like Drupal CMS, Joomla CMS, Smarty template engine, Twig, JQuery library, CodeIgniter framework, CakePHP framework, Symfony framework, Laravel framework, Phalcon framework, Yii framework and WordPress blogging platform.

Comes with Context help and PHP debug tool.

Cons: The UI is not impressive and lacks the modern and intuitive element that is present in other editors. The application works great but UI does matter too as it counts to your overall coding experience a lot.

Overall: I use it on daily basis to write codes in HTML. It makes my work easier and efficient.

Pros: The interactive PHP debugger contains all of the information that you would get when debugging a compiled language like C or C++, even though PHP is a scripted language. It is invaluable for finding the root cause of difficult bugs, and because it is so easy to use it is can lead you to a solution with simple bugs also, due to the limitations of print-style output in a complex client screen scenario. Also, being able to view the fine details of the environment while tracing though code is simply impossible without this type of powerful tool. It pays for itself very quickly, in terms of time saved. Scope/'stack' is preserved for breakpoints/tracing.

Cons: I could not find a way to display larger data items easily in their entirety (that might be my bad for not finding it ?).

Overall: The bottom line is that when you are at work, time is money/productivity, and CodeLobster's PHP debugger is guaranteed to save considerable amounts of time (unless you write prefect code - haha)

It is a code editor for PHP and HTML files, that comes with great and useful features.

Pros: It is mainly a PHP-focused IDE, but also comes with support for other languages such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This makes it a quite useful tools for programmers and coders.

Auto-completion while coding in PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Code is highlighted, can be collapsed, and comes with a built in browser.

Context help provides information about the selected part of the code.

Debugging tool can help you get rid of bugs, errors, and more.

Cons: Although it is a great and feature rich IDE, its user interface can be a deal breaker for a lot of users. The UI is not too bad, but it could have been better.

Pros: I love this IDE for server-side jobs since it provides an excellent interface for analyzing and debugging the code, in addition to having an FTP connection, it is really useful and easy to work with.

Pros: It is one of the most popular code editors among programmers, its visual interface is simple, easy to read and understand.

The function of autocompletado is very good, we can write code for PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS and others with great fluency, in addition the editor highlights the respective functions of each programming language which allows to accelerate the work and avoid errors.

This editor is very easy to install and does not weigh as much as other similar ones. We can also download additional add-ons for different programming languages.

Pros: It is a fairly complete IDE, it is ideal for designing websites, since it has all the functions of php and js that you need, by default, it also has a quite complete panel with which you can configure it to your liking. You can also download add-ons from your official website so you have more features.

Cons: The free version only offers a few days of trial, you need the paid version to enjoy all its benefits, and its interface can be configured but I think it needs a refresh.

Pros: I like its maneuverability for the code development environment under the HTML, CSS, JavaScript languages and of course PHP is very useful, because it concentrates on common languages and simple debugger.

Overall: Using and testing all kinds of editors is a very good idea, since the programmer will always look for the best for their development environment.

Pros: I really liked the implementation of all the various IDE functionalities you could expect from a modern IDE, but all in one lightweight program. Everything was contained within one window which I thought was great, made it a lot easier to work with multiple projects. Really appreciated support for platforms like CodeIgniter and Laravel, was much more helpful/reliable than competing products.

Cons: Visually, it wasn't the most sleek/modern, but for software developing tools I prefer function over form so this didn't bother me too much. Default dark mode theme was good and a little tweaking made it perfect!

Pros: FTP Explorer (you can easily open files for edit directly from the server), for me it was a decisive factor to buy Lite version, instead of just using Free version. Auto-completion of names of functions and variables. Popup functions description.

Cons: Perhaps buttons in toolbars could be a little bigger. I have 27" Full-HD monitor and still, buttons are too small for me. Maybe their size can be changed but I didn't find where. This is the only disadvantage I have found.

Pros: I've used codelobster for about 2 months when I was looking for a dedicated IDE for PHP, it has a ton of features, more than what you need to get started. It has a powerful code intelligence capabilities, you can spin up a server with wordpress installation very quickly...

Cons: My biggest complain is the interface which is so outdated. There is a lot of alternatives with a modern interface that matches the actual standards. But if it's not important for you then the IDE is a good choice.
