PHP IDE Eclipse PDT (PHP Development Tool)
Eclipse PDT (PHP Development Tool) is a helpful tool for creating PHP web applications easily. Features that I fond most in Eclipse PDT are syntax coloring and auto complete syntax. To create a simple ‘Hello World’ PHP website, you need download and install the tools below:
Eclipse PDT does not need any installation, its a portable PHP IDE (intergrated development environment), something like a package that allows you to create PHP projects and debugging them.
After double clicking on that executable, you would need to wait few seconds for it to boot up. If you have not set up your workspace (the place where Eclipse stores your project files), you can do so now.
I have created a folder called ‘Eclipse Projects’ in the folder where the Eclipse executable is located. Tick ‘Don’t ask me again’. Click OK to proceed.
