Today, I want to bring to your attention Codelobster PHP Edition – a completely free and extremely powerful PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript editor.

codelobster reviewSo what exactly does Codelobster PHP Edition do?

  • All code highlights depending on a type, the also mixed code is thus supported, so the area of HTML will be highlighted as HTML, PHP as PHP, and Javascript as Javascript in the same file. You can choose color schemes, including popular IDEs.
  • Powerful auto completion for HTML, PHP, CSS and Javascript, including HTML5 and CSS3. For PHP, the structure of the project is fully recognized, and the complete list of methods falls out in the proper places.
  • HTML/CSS inspector similar to Firebug, which allows easily to correlate the selected elements of page with a code and proper style.
  • Context help on all supported languages. By pressing F1 key the page with detailed description for current tag, attribute or function will be opened.
  • PHP debugger. PHP debugger allows to execute PHP scripts incrementally, watching the values of all variables in every line.
  • SQL manager allows to produce all necessary actions with a database – to add, delete, edit a structure and records in tables, to export data, execute SQL queries. Highlighting and auto completion works for SQL files too.
  • Support of FTP allows to work from a remote server and to do all necessary file changes via FTP;
  • The portable option allows to use editor without preliminary installation.
  • Other useful utilities: pair highlighting, possibility of blocks selection, collapsing, tooltips, navigation on descriptions of functions and included files when holding CTRL key, viewing file and project structure, preview in a browser, bookmarks, and many other features.
