well after testing several php editors/ide here is the list:
  • notepad++ simple editor with syntax highlighting and basic auto completion - free
  • phpdesigner8 IDE with intellisense, auto completion and easy to use, the problem is paid
  • eclipse for php: IDE with simple intellisense and auto completion, cumbersome configuration. plus: free
  • PHP STORM: IDE complete and simple to use the problem: very expensive
  • vs code: the editor seems great but as an IDE seems cumbersome
  • apache net beans: heavy weight, but easy to run and good intellisense, plus its free too
So i think i will stick with Eclipse for PHP for now
or ( after edit ) Net Beans

i also tested net beans. its heavy-weight so i didnt install the java part, but the php part seems easy and the intellisense, well, intelligent :lol:
ive also forgot in the poll to add vs code and visual studio itself ( although i have no idea how msvs works with php )
