On the constant search for a better PHP IDE, I’m trying out the newly “opened” Maguma Open Studio.
(yes it’s free, and Free.)
The idea here I’m guessing is that by opening up the source for this version, you’ll get hooked and want to shell out the big bucks for the Professional “Workbench” version.
Not bad so far. It’s PC only but at first glance seems a bit lighter and faster than my current PC/PHP editor PHPEclipse. I’ve give it a go on the PC for a few weeks and see if I can make some sense out of it.
Update: I’ve confirmed that PHP5 debugging (using XDebug) does indeed work. Haven’t gotten code completion working yet, and I don’t see any sign of CVS in this version (probaby only in the pay version).
So I’ve finally have a fast, and very usable Fedora Core 3 desktop machine here at work. Been using it a couple weeks now along side my Windows machine. When installing things like mysql, I had a little difficulty adjusting to the SELinux rules, but I’m getting the hang of it. Other than that, it’s been super smooth.
If anyone out there has and “perfect apps” I should be using, please let me know. I’m also looking for ideas on personal home folder directory structures, and @work time saving techniques.
By the way, this is our new office space, and the view from my desk (taken before the new Fedora machine)
