This entry is the remix of old entry which I wrote September 24. 2005.
I heard a tool of VS.PHP from Tom formerly. I tested it for a while and got the best conclusion.
“This is development environment most superior for PHP”
I had been continuing looking for the best PHP IDE all the time. I don’t like Microsoft, but evaluate VisualStudio highly. My life cannot miss VisualStudio and CodeWarrior. VS.PHP is plug-in for VisualStudio, which has power to be able to sting a programmer happily.
I had wanted a supporting function such as “intellisense” of .NET. However, I could not get such function in various IDE. Both Eclipse and Peggy aren’t enough for my hope. But, VS.PHP realizes true “intellisence”. That’s really exciting!
Nobody will think to want to type all “$description”. If you use Eclipse3 or Peggy, “Word Supplement” function will help you. However, “intellisense” of VisualStudio helps you in this scope precisely. “intellisense” simplifies “practice of a cord rule”. A programmer is not tormented by a name of a long variable. Therefore a name of a variable and a name of a property are always appropriate.
You should know one more. “Intellisense” of VS.PHP is higher-speed than “Intellisense” of C/C++. Perhaps quantity of a library is related to this phenomenon. Plus, the reason is that Intellisence of VS.PHP works automatically without CTRL+SPACE. “intellisense” of VS.PHP does not help PHP only. You can watch its high-power in here. When you have finished watching this, you will get impossible to endure excitement to programing.
