Sasa Stamenkovic's Blog:
Eclipse vs NetBeans for PHP Development
June 07, 2011 @ 12:34:21

In a new post to his blog Sasa Stamenkovic compares two of the most popular IDEs PHP developers are using these days - Eclipse and NetBeans and how they stack up on various criteria including configuration, navigation, version control support and debugging.

I was happy Eclipse fanboy for quite a long time, and I can say that I still am. I like to try out new things, but this IDE was doing perfect job and I stick to it for PHP development. But few months ago I have tried NetBeans 7.0, and boy, after few hours it felt like home. At the end of the day, with all respect to Eclipse, I decided to switch. I will try to compare this two, but before we start I must say that they are both very good at what they do, and no matter which one you choose it will do great job for sure.

He includes descriptions and screenshots for quite a bit of the features, comparing the interfaces as well as the bundled functionality for the following:

  • configuration options
  • code completion abilities
  • general application navigation
  • code formatting abilities
  • version control support
  • debugging integration
  • testing support (unit tests, etc.)
  • plugins
  • and perfomance
