Are you a flash developer that occasionally has to dabble in php and hates the lack of strict typing and misses the ease of type-hinting like there is with actionscript? Well, any developer that is comfortable with Flex Builder will welcome Eclipse PHP Development Tools. Flex Builder, which is built on the Eclipse framework, functions almost identical to Eclipse with PDT. I’ve used Dreamweaver, Coda, Notepad++, jEdit, Komodo, PHP Designer — I’ve used almost all of them — to write PHP, and nothing is as powerful as Eclipse (in my opinion)! Plus, it is free! So, this is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a while and it should be short and sweet. There are a few features that took me a while to find that help greatly with writing PHP in Eclipse, so I thought I would document them here for those of you who wish they would have learned about these features years ago like I do.
