About PhpStorm

JetBrains PhpStorm is a commercial, cross-platform IDE for PHP built on JetBrains' IntelliJ IDEA platform.

PhpStorm provides an intelligent editor for PHP, HTML and JavaScript with on-the-fly code analysis, error prevention and automated refactorings for PHP and JavaScript code. PhpStorm's code completion supports PHP 5.3 & 5.4 (modern and legacy projects), including namespaces, closures, traits and short array syntax. It includes a full-fledged SQL editor with editable query results.

PhpStorm is built on IntelliJ IDEA, which is written in Java. Users can extend the IDE by installing plugins created for the IntelliJ Platform or write their own plugins.

All features available in WebStorm are included in PhpStorm, which adds support for PHP and databases. WebStorm ships with pre-installed JavaScript plugins (such as for Node.js), which are available for PhpStorm as well at no cost.

  • PhpStorm is definitely a reliable and steady web development solution that can compete with other high-end products as well.

  • While tools like Sublime Text might be good enough PhpStorm takes my daily workflow to an entirely new level helping me get more done faster. For the foreseeable future I’m hooked on PhpStorm for my real work and I’ll let Sublime Text do what it does best, act as the text editor on my machine.

  • PhpStorm is an IDE which is just a useful as the larger IDEs like Eclipse and Zend Studio but without all the bulk and unnecessary functions which make the other IDEs hard to learn and use.

    PHPStorm is one of the best PHP integrated development environments on the market. I use it very often, and it's an essential tool for my web development in PHP.

    It's written in Java, and it's based on IntelliJ IDE, so if you are confident with other products of the same JetBrains family, you will' be confident also with PHPStorm. I used PyCharm, and it's very similar.

    This software, from an IDE point of view, is fantastic, and almost everything works out of the box, without the need for a particular configuration.
    From an editor point of view, PHPStorm has probably the best autocompletion tool.

    Pros :

    • PHPStorm has an excellent editor with code autocompletion, probably one of its best strong point. Autocompletion works very well with frameworks like Symfony or Laravel and it's integrated with the composer.
    • It's multiplatform, so you can use it on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. I use it on Mac and Linux.
    • This IDE is also excellent with debugging tools, offering support for XDebug.
    • There are also great tools for refactoring and, in general, the editor is very complete. Probably one of the most complete editor around there.
    • VCS integration is very good, with support for the most used players on the market: GIT, Mercurial, and SVN. It also has a very good integration with tasks managers like Jira, YouTrack, Lighthouse, Redmine, Trac, Asana, Github, etc...
    • Project navigation is very simple, and the IDE automatically scans the project to permit the developer to navigate also through symbols. This is a huge time-saver because you don't need to configure software like tags.
    • There are a lot of plugins, officials and not, to extend the functionalities of the IDE and the editor.
    • Last but not least, a great plus is the database navigator: you can connect to a database (local or remote) and manage it. The query editor is fantastic.

    Cons :

    • PHPStorm it's written in Java, so it's heavy on memory and resources, you need a PC with at least 8GB of RAM. I don't think it's a big problem.
    • This IDE is excellent, I don't think that there are other cons.

    PhpStorm is one of many IDEs Jetbrains has released for programmers. This one specifically is for PHP. Overall, this is a modern and great program that allows for high-level coding in PHP as well as HTML and CSS. It has great customization features and is useful for experienced and inexperienced coders alike. I have used this for several programs, and it has not failed me in the slightest. I highly recommend it for every and all PHP coders.

    Pros :

    The User interface for PhpStorm is fantastic. It has great customization to allow for any user to make it look like how they want. Phpstorm also allows users to resize all the windows at will. This program features many extremely useful parts and plugins, one of which allows a user to organize all the files they have for a project in one folder, which can have many sub-folders. In addition, the program gives tool -tips about the program and language itself upon opening it each time. While coding in PhpStorm, the fantastic IDE will constantly allow for even better programming. It has a predictive function which can finish typing out functions, methods and even variables for you. This saves keystrokes and allows for more efficient and faster coding. PhpStorm also boasts a very impressive debugging software. This allows for any user to quickly zero in on what is causing a program to fail or operate incorrectly.

    Cons :

    Despite the many Pros that come with PhpStorm, it is not perfect. The full edition is fairly expensive, and the community edition which is free lacks many advanced features the professional edition has.(Although all students can get all of JetBrains programs for free by using their .edu email). It also is fairly complicated to turn on PHP formatting when editing an HTML file. This is a slight problem as for anyone that likes the formatting of text for a language(having certain objects, functions, etc. in different colors) this can be a very big problem.
