Hey hey! Fresh stuff again! 🙂 This time it is symfony again!
Lets cut the chatting and get straight to the point!
What IDE are you using? Is it fast, is it comfortable, does it have plugins for Symfony?
You are saying, yeess, NetBeans has it, though it is not very fast 😦 All that Java is eating my memory…
If you have it a lot, that that is not a prob, but what if you are short with that resource??? Lets say you have, oh I don’t know, a virtual machine, which you use for developing. You don’t want all that projects, files and junk to be in your sweet home and to look it every day in your spare time :D. So you make virtual machine and use it to do all the work, then shut it down, and the nightmare is forgotten. YEY! But in case you do not have a resource monster computer, or some kinda super computer, virtual machine will have less RAM than host on which you are running it. That is the main part, where you might have the problems with NetBeans or Eclipse. They are sooo sloow on virtual machines… Or I am not well informed, and I do not know some hints to make them faster. If you do, please inform me below 🙂
CUT THE RAMBLING 🙂 GET TO THE POINT!!! silly me 😀
I went some googling about php editor which has support for symfony. There were NetBeans (newest version), Eclipse (with its plugins), PHPEdit (which is shareware, and being a student, I don’t have too much money to spare on software), Komodo IDE (shareware), but WAIT! Komodo Editor!?
That is free, as in speech, dynamic languages editor. Mmmm nice? PHP, Python, Shell, Perl etc. Mmm nice!!! Built in C++!? Weeell, it is based on Mozzila Framework, which among all includes C++ libraries. Faster than NetBeans or Eclipse, which are Java based… Has some plugins for symfony… WOW! You must be dying from wish to try it! 🙂
Here you go http://www.openkomodo.com/ Komodo Edit
So you download it, and what? How, to use if for developing Symfony projects??? That is the right question! And, since this post took me some time, I’ll describe basic project generation in this post.
I’d be very interested in reading your comments, because I see some interest in symfony… Bye 🙂
