i was using notepad++ for my coding needs and was happy with that.
As i am practicing my php skills i found that notepad++ is not that powerful. i downloaded komodo edit and used it. it is very good IDE and i like it. but while reading some tutorial i came across debugging section and found that komodo edit does not support debugging. then i searched for IDE with debugger options. now i have 2 choices 1. aptana studio 2. eclipse PDT.
i have already downloaded them both and used them. they are very similar. similar because both evolved from eclipse.
i need help regarding which one is better. i am not knowledgeable enough at this stage to decide myself.
i feel very comfortable working with komodo edit. i have already created some snippets for me in komodo. it is also not very resource hungry as compared to aptana and eclipse.
should i go for aptana or eclipse? i am asking this because once you are used to one ide it is pain when you have to switch to something else. would i have some advantage switching to either one of these?
I just downloaded 'Zend Studio for Eclipse' trial and found that it has same interface as eclipse PDT but has many more features. it is 30 days trial so i will be able to check many features which are not in PDT and after 30 days revert to free EclipsePDT
