CodeLobster PHP Edition 5.3
Since it comes with auto-completion features, even novice users can master the application, considering that CodeLobster PHP Edition includes a wide range of code completion listings and makes it easy to find HTML elements and styles, regardless of their location.
Support for several file formats and frameworks
The main window of the program is intuitive and easy to work with. Once you launch it, you are able to easily create a new PHP, CSS, HTML, SQL, XML or YAML file and start working at your projects.
Also, the application comes with support for Drupal CMS, Joomla, JQuery library, CodeIgniter framework and WordPress blogging platform, so you can simplify HTML traversing, event animating and Ajax interactions for rapid web development no matter the platform you choose to work for.
Pick the proper encoding
An important aspect when you create or edit such files is that some non-Latin symbols might appear unreadable. In such cases, you are required to change the character encoding so each time you open or save the files, you can easily choose the proper encoding option from the drop-down list.
Preview files and their properties
The Explorer section allows you to move around the directory tree, preview specific files and view all of the available folders, along with their properties such as creation time, size, full path and type.
However, the most important function of CodeLobster PHP Edition is the Debugger tool that contains a set of utilities in order to debug apps during the development process. This way, you are able to find if any bugs, errors or warning messages appear when you run the current project. Still, before pressing the ‘Debug’ button, you need to make sure that the ‘php.ini’ file is available, otherwise the function won’t work.
Check out the console for any errors
The Console section, located in the bottom pane of the program will display all the errors and warning messages that might appear if the PHP file is not properly configured. Because the Debugger function contains several tools such as ‘Breakpoints,’ ‘Locals control,’ ‘URL Debugging’ and ‘Call Stack control,’ you can manage the debugging process the way you want.
All in all, CodeLobster PHP Edition comes in handy for users who need to develop PHP scripts for their webpages in order to make all the available elements responsive.
