Richard Davey's Blog:
PhpEd vs Zend Studio
Nov 15, 2006 @ 14:03:00

On his blog today, Richard Davey has posted a review he's done comparing two of the major PHP IDEs offered - NuSphere's PhpEd and Zend's Zend Studio.

A few months back Nusphere emailed me to say that version 4.6 of PhpEd was out, and did I want to trial it. I figured what the heck, and here is what I found out when you compare the two ...Wow, things have changed in PhpEd land! Being a stalwart Zend IDE user I figured it would be only fair to give you a break-down comparison of the two.

He looks at a few different topics:

  • The Editor Itself
  • PHP IDE GUI Designers = Extinct?
  • How do they handle my projects?
  • File Uploading
  • HTML Support
  • Source Control
  • Debuggers
  • Other Tools
  • PHP 5.2

Since he's really trying to find out more about this latest version of PhpEd, he tends to be a bit heavy on the comments towards that (and less of a comparison), but it's definitely a good look at two different IDEs and some of their strengths and weaknesses.
