"Big tool with intuitive interface"

What do you like best?

After job change I needed to switch to PhpStorm. In my previous workplace I was using on Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code. I thought that change will be hard, but to be honest I hadn't any bigger issues with this change. To sum up, the best thing in this tool is that PhpStorm is very user friendly.

Other nice thing is that PhpStorm has built-in dark mode. In my opinion this is very comfortable when you need to coding for whole days.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion key shortcuts were better in Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code. Other thing is that search has sometimes problems with find something.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need tool with lots of possibilities in programming, thing about PhpStorm. Nice interface, not to heavy, works quick. Good tool for front-end developers. Easy to dive in. Additional plus - built in emmet support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My daily work is connected with big project, which has hundreds of different files written in languages like SCSS, handlebars.js and JavaScript. PhpStorm goes smoothly with all kind of these technologies, so I can be focused on programming work and don't need to worry about other things, like syntax colors or right code formatting.

"The PHP developers choice"

What do you like best?

PHPStorm is an IDE built for web development in PHP, CSS and HTML. It is providing so many features that makes a web developer's life and work much easier and therefore improving development speed, team's morale and productivity, which in the end translate to faster time to market and stakeholders happier. It is not free, however the investment is very small comparable to the time saved during regular development tasks like: code refactoring, finding dependencies, going through different implementations of the same function for debugging etc. The ROI in dollar amount goes higher as your developers paycheck grows. :)

What do you dislike?

Built for web development - this comes both ways, a positive and also a negative because I would like to have this IDE used by all my teams, developing in different programming languages, not only the PHP guys.

Also, given its complexity, to fully use this IDE as its full capabilities, one must spend time to learn it first.

Some performance issues may be there if the machine where you run it is not properly sized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a web developer using PHP, CSS and HTML you should consider buying this for yourself, it will make a big difference.

If you are a web development team's manager you definitely need to consider buying this for your developers, the ROI is very good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Buying this for the team helped getting the product's new features released faster, it improved the web development team's focus and happiness.

"Excellent IDE for Php development - a real pioneer"

What do you like best?

- supports multiple operating systems

- quick start and easy on memory

- full-featured web development IDE

- Intelligent PHP, JS, HTML and CSS editor

- supports code completion, documentation and lint

- has native ZenCoding support

- can be extended with plenty useful plugins (e.g. VimEditor)

- can synchronize files from local to server and back

What do you dislike?

- require Oracle Java to run properly

- costs money

- too complex for some developers

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those who didn’t have any prior experience with JetBrains IDEs and applications, I can say that they are always top quality and very well known among large groups of developers. In this article, however, I’ll be focusing just on their web development IDE called PhpStorm (or the second IDE without PHP support called WebStorm), its advantages, disadvantages and usage cases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The IDE helps me by providing me with various powerful tools such as JS debugger (also can be found in many modern browsers), code completion and intel with documentation and other things. For the full list refer to the Pros/Cons section below. I really recommend buying or at least trying it (like me) because I think it’s totally worth it.

"Best IDE? PhpStorm!"

What do you like best?

Its simple user interface makes coding much easier . It contains lots of tools and it is compatible with many plugins . It inspects the code and shows you if you have committed an issue and where it is . I like the new keyboard functions that have been added recently and the auto-completion , error prevention and search functions . The program includes Github, SASS support.

What do you dislike?

The program takes high memory usage and sometimes it gets a bit laggy on my comuter, usually when I am working with large files. I find it a bit expensive and it hasn't got a very good support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best IDE I have worked with so I really recommend you. Although it is a bit expensive it is worth buying.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using this program 2 years and I mainly use it to deal with PhP files for some customer projects.

"PhpStorm Review: IDE for PHP development"

What do you like best?

For my use, the best feature of PhpStorm is database browsing, Remote host browsing, and all the deep-seated customizations for both the UI and Technical feasibility are the result of an amazing integrity and compatibility with most components and technologies. Furthermore, it has a built-in shell which is helpful for traversing code for debugging purposes with ease.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about PhpStorm is its high memory usage. Also to keep in mind that it requires a learning curve for utilizing all of its core components and extensible features are steep. So if you're coming from Sublime or Atom you might have a tough time getting used to IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend PhpStorm for PHP development it's well suited for any PHP development. It also integrates well with Symfony and Laravel. It has a plethora of plugins support from JetBrains and the community are available, like support for Docker, Vagrant, Angular, Vue.js and more useless (but fun) like a Nyan cat progress bar. It can be expensive for some but it's worth the price you pay.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use PhpStorm for debugging PHP web-apps. It's great IDE and helps in pinpointing errors in the code via compilation, syntax highlighting and various other code inspection features. It allows me to connect remote host, pulling files directly from company servers to the IDE and putting edited files directly back on servers.

"PhpStorm:A software packed with features"

What do you like best?

PhpStorm is built on top of the open-source IntelliJ Platform. To Enjoy the fine-tuned, highly customizable experience it provides to fit your development workflow.PhpStorm provides a unified UI for working with many popular Version Control Systems, ensuring a consistent user experience across git, GitHub, SVN, Mercurial, and Perforce.

PhpStorm provides tools and code assistance features for working with databases and SQL in your projects.

It provides a streamlined experience for the full development cycle with new languages such as TypeScript, CoffeeScript, and Dart.

What do you dislike?

For freelancers, it is very costly to purchase the license and in the end the left looking for the alternatives.

PhpStorm requires a RAM with a great capacity for its optimal operation, A 16GB RAM is recommended.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it is perfect for the development of JPhp, JavaScript I recommend it widely if you are willing to pay the expensive license. This IDE saves a considerable amount of time in software development and improves developer's productivity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool at the business level could implement various internal projects for the organization. It is the time best IDE in my opinion to develop Php applications. Its Live Edit feature gives us an opportunity to see all the changes instantly in the browser without refreshing the page.

"El mejor IDE del momento para PHP"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de PHPStorm es la facilidad con la que puedes construir aplicaciones. La empresa que hay detras, Jetbrains, es muy buena con múltiples soluciones para todo tipo de lenguajes. Tiene una opción para instalar plugins que da una facilidad enorme a los desarrolladores para diseñar sus propias apps. Soporte Composer, terminal embebido, Git, Plugin con Symfony... Hay una gran comunidad de developers que ayudan a resolver tus dudas. El precio me parece ridículo para lo que se ofrece.

What do you dislike?

Cuando tu proyecto es demasiado grande y manejas muchísimas dependencias con composer, algunas veces se hace insoportable trabajar, pero son muy pocas veces. Ocurre lo mismo cuando trabajas con un entorno en docker o vagrant, cuando tiene que indexar gran cantidad de datos... Se vuelve un poco insoportable trabajar, desespera.

Recommendations to others considering the product

El mercado de las web apps van en aumento, PHPStorm aporta de bastantes funciones para hacer el trabajo muy ameno. Va super rápido, actualizan constantemente el IDE, el terminal embebido es una maravilla ya que no te mareas cambiando de ventana en ventana.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mi equipo de trabajo se sincroniza correctamente ya que soporta Git. Es estupendo no tener problemas de coherencia en el código, siempre estamos actualizados. Además, cada cierto tiempo lanzan actualizaciones, es facilísimo actualizarse y nunca me ha producido ningún problema. La facilidad con la que se instalan plugins, no te hace falta ser un gran experto y un gran informático para configurar el IDE a tu gusto.

"Best IDE for PHP"

What do you like best?

The best feature of PhStorm is that it is reliable, has an intelligent coding assistant that includes all the CSS HTML and JS benefits of JetBrains Webstorm.

It also supports other technologies for web development like CSS, SASS,HTML,SCSS,CoffeeScript,LESS,Jade templates ECMAScript and many more.

Furthermore, it comes with a smart Javascript editor and lives edit functionality which is quick in changing the views.

And finally, it's interacting graphic diff tool displays the difference in an easy and readable format enabling you to effortlessly move changes from a file to the other file with the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about the PhpStorm. There are very few IDE like it in the market providing support with multiple languages for web development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this IDE to those who are into web development using Php. There are few IDE like Phpstorm in the market providing support for languages like SASS, HTML, SCSS, CoffeeScript, LESS etc. It's pricey however the price decreases after 3rd year and remains constant for the coming years. It can be expensive initially but it worth every money you pay.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We build PHP websites at out company henceforth require a well-structured IDE for Php with support for other web development languages like SASS, HTML, SCSS, CoffeeScript etc. It's fast, robust, supporting GIT integration which is very helpful. Big projects can be completed faster thereby increasing productivity.

"Gran software para desarrolladores"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de PHPStorm es la facilidad con la que puedes construir aplicaciones, en mi caso lo uso con Symfony y tiene un plugin que facilita muchísimo el trabajo. Da una facilidad enorme a los desarrolladores para diseñar moverte entre tus dependencias de ficheros, además, la integración con Git está muy conseguida. Dispone de un terminal embebido para no marearte entre ventanas.

What do you dislike?

Algunas veces, cuando tu proyecto es demasiado grande en cuanto a ficheros, va un poco lento. Le cuesta indexar el contenido, hacer búsquedas, etc. Otra cosa que no me gusta es acerca de la sintaxis del código en Español, no he conseguido hacer que al escribir de forma natural en Español me la reconozca como correcta. Le falta autoreconocer el framework que estás usando para activar los plugins respectivos que se pueden activar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PhpStorm no va a defraudar, está detrás de una gran empresa "Jetbrains" que tiene múltiples soluciones para todo tipo de lenguajes. Es fácil de manejar, una gran comunidad que ayuda, múltiples plugins para ayudarte con tu lenguaje favorito.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mi equipo se sincroniza correctamente ya que soporta Git. Es estupendo no tener problemas de coherencia en el código, siempre estamos actualizados. Además, hay una gran comunidad de soporte que puedes resolver cualquier duda en minutos/horas. Es un software ligero y fácil de manejar.

"PhpStorm es el mejor IDE para PHP sin dudarlo"

What do you like best?

Actualmente el mejor IDE para programar en PHP es sin dudarlo PHPStorm es mi opinión sincera, las grandes empresas y los buenos programadores usan PHPStorm por que nos hace la vida un poco más fácil, tiene un auto-completar que es la hostia herramienta de bueno, con Symfony se adaptata de maravilla.

What do you dislike?

Realmente no me disgusta nada ni de PHPStorm ni de ninguna de los IDE de la familia Storm, pero como muy bien he indicado más arriba con symfony, laravel se adapta de maravilla cosa que con codeIgniter no lo entiende y hace un poco más difícil el desarrollo

Recommendations to others considering the product

No lo dudes, instálalo y no usarás nada más que PhpStorm, ofrecen una licencia para los estudiantes de 1 año o simplemente prueba sus 30 días gratis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

La refactorizacion es la clave del éxito para que todo un equipo de programadores puedan entender lo que ha hecho uno y el otro,, el código limpio, la configuración de los PSR, la rapidez con la que sacamos los proyectos tanto al IDE como a los frameworks

"Uno de los mejores IDES para programar"

What do you like best?

Utilicé en su dia Atom y Notepad++ para el desarrollo de PHP, hasta que encontre el que luego iba a ser mi mejor amigo PhpStorm a principios de este año y estoy enamorado, cada vez que necesito desarrollar algo uso PHPStorm, no sólo para PHP, incluso con CSS, y JS ya que incluye soporte para ellos, es increíble cómo funciona... La búsqueda de clases, y los métodos con parámetros en el "Popup", todo es asombroso

What do you dislike?

Hasta ahora, lo único que me molesta es que no puedo tener los archivos de control en una carpeta separada, pero esto es algo menor y no me preocupa tanto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aproveche la prueba de 30 días.. Mira algunos vídeos de YouTube como al buen Carlos Vinos. Y ya por ultimo no se arrepentirá de adquirir una licencia de phpstorm y es mas comprara mas licencia de la familia "Storm"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PhpStorm es un IDE moderno, su forma de integrarse con GIT es excelente incluso para analizar las versiones de los ficheros, para ver sus diferencias, es perfectamente para su equipo de programadores, ademas de que los proyectos irán mas rápidos

"Muy avanzado PHP IDE para tus proyectos"

What do you like best?

PHPStorm está muy bien organizado. Ofrece inspección de código, que te ayuda a identificar problemas desde el principio, como falta de una coma, punto y coma, errores ortográficos, declaraciones vacías e incluso errores lógicos. Ofrece la finalización de código para ayudarte a terminar más rápido.

Tiene una interfaz de usuario muy agradable, que te permite navegar fácilmente y encontrar lo que estás buscando. El menú de configuración está bien diseñado y es fácil encontrar la configuración que está buscando. La configuración de un servidor FTP, SFTP o FTPS es rápida y sencilla, por lo que se conecta a una base de datos. También ofrece SQL completado, si lo tiene conectado a su base de datos SQL, y también inspecciona tus consultas SQL en busca de errores.

What do you dislike?

Al buscar usos de una función o método, no hay una opción para filtrar los usos encontrados por los argumentos utilizados en las llamadas (con frecuencia busco usos de un determinado argumento opcional que necesito cambiar o eliminar del declaración de la función), así que para encontrarlos tengo que hacer clic en cada uso, incluso si hay docenas de ellos además de que he notado que utiliza bastante memoria ram y puede ralentizar otros procesos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pruébalo. Tómate el tiempo que necesites tiempo durante la prueba para configurarlo correctamente para sus proyectos y explorar sus utilidades. Te acostumbrarás fácilmente.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PHPStorm ha sido una muy buena experiencia y ha ayudado a completar proyectos relacionados con PHP de manera más rápida y efectiva minimizando así los costes.

"Mejor IDE para programar en PHP"

What do you like best?

Este IDE hace que sea muy fácil para nosotros programar en PHP. PHPStorm es muy fácil de usar y tiene funciones de auto-completar que nos permiten escribir código de una manera eficiente y factorizada incluyendo las reglas del PSR para que todo el mundo pueda entenderlo.

What do you dislike?

Si hay algo que no me gusta, es el alto uso de memoria del software (ya que *todo* está indexado por el IDE.) Pero en una máquina de desarrollo fuerte con suficientes recursos, esto es un pequeño problema.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si usted está familiarizado con cualquier producto de la familia Storm no tendrás ningún tipo de problema a la hora de programar con este IDE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PhpStorm hizo mi trabajo escribiendo código aun mas fácil. El IDE ofrece características muy útiles como la finalización y generación de código y la validación de sintaxis. También tiene un excelente depurador, y tiene fuertes características de cobertura de pruebas también.

"Mejor IDE para trabajar con PHP"

What do you like best?

Code Refactoring - ayuda a hacer cambios en el código, entendiendo los alcances del código y alertándole cuando haga cambios que puedan afectar a otras partes.

Resaltado de sintaxis - ayuda a ver diferentes partes del código (clases, funciones, constantes) coloreándolo de forma diferente en un modo único.

Modo Oscuro - funciona perfectamente y hace que la vista sea mucho más clara

Depurador - la depuración dentro del IDE hace la vida mucho más fácil (opción de depuración remota) conectándose directamente al apache de MAMP.

Integración de control de versiones - la integración de los productos Jetbrains con sistemas de control de versiones como git está haciendo la vida mucho más fácil a los desarrolladores, porque hace que el proceso de empuje de código sea mucho más fluido e integrado en todo el proceso de desarrollo.

What do you dislike?

Desempeño de tareas en segundo plano - algunas tareas en segundo plano como la comprobación de cambios en el código hacen que el programa se atasque, lo que perjudica la experiencia.

Cambio de extensión de archivo - a veces se atasca o tarda demasiado en hacerlo porque el IDE comprueba los usos de ese fragmento de código.

Los cambios de código llevan tiempo - a veces, cuando hay un fragmento de código que se utiliza en muchos lugares, hacer cambios en el nombre del archivo de ese fragmento de código lleva mucho tiempo, como 30 segundos, lo que puede ser frustrante.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PhpStorm es el mejor IDE para el desarrollo de PHP, sin dudarlo. Se integra con todas las herramientas necesarias (git, debugger, etc). Altamente recomendado.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muchos de los sitios web de mi empresa utilizan PHP, lo que lleva a la necesidad de un IDE PHP bien estructurado. Usar PHPStorm nos ofreció el mejor IDE que pudimos encontrar. El software rico en funciones ha llevado a un aumento de la productividad y a un desarrollo más rápido. También ha ayudado a identificar errores de sintaxis.

"Best PHP editor exists"

What do you like best?

Code Refactoring - helps doing changes to the code, by understanding code scopes and alerting you when doing changes that might affect other parts

Syntax Highlighting - helps to view different parts of code (classes, functions, constants) by coloring it differently in a unique mode

Dark Mode - works perfectly and makes the view much more clear

Debugger - debugging within the IDE makes life much easier (remote debugging option) by connecting directly to MAMP's apache.

Version control integration - the integration of Jetbrains products with version control systems like git is making life so much easier for developers, because it makes the code pushing process much fluent and integrated in the entire development process.

What do you dislike?

Background Tasks Performance - some background tasks like checking code changes make the program to stuck, which hurts the experience

Change of file extension - sometimes gets stuck or takes too long to do because the IDE checks for usages of that piece of code

Code changes take time - sometimes when there is a piece of code that's used in many places, making changes to the file name of that piece of code takes lot of time, like 30 seconds, which can be frustrating

Recommendations to others considering the product

PhpStorm is the best IDE for PHP development, no hesitation. Integrates with all required tools (git, debugger, etc). Highly recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Development of server backend

Development of CLI

Maintenance of legacy code

"PHPStorm IDE"

What do you like best?

Lo más destacable de este IDE desde mi punto de vista es la capacidad de simplificación, búsqueda, organización y presentación que posee. Puedes configurar prácticamente todo a tu gusto y así facilitar las tareas a la hora de trabajar por ende ahorrar muchísimo tiempo al final de la jornada laboral

What do you dislike?

Pues a día de hoy la única "pega" que puedo destacar es su precio, pero teniendo en cuenta la calidad del software que se adquiere, no es para nada caro.

En el ámbito del desarrollo de software, hace que la programación sea más cómoda y ayuda enormemente al desarrollador dándole infinidad de atajos y acciones automáticas de las cosas más comunes en la programación.

What do you like best?

Me gusta el hecho de que PHP Storm resalta partes de su código y da atajos para cambiar el código para mejorarlo. es muy fácil de usar y tiene funciones de autocompletar que nos permiten escribir código de una manera eficiente y factorizada para que todo el equipo pueda entenderlo.

What do you dislike?

Los modos de depuración son difíciles y complicados de usar

No tiene un soporte muy bueno para un framework PHP muy usado como es Laravel.

La licencia se paga cada año, preferiría pagar una sola vez.

Usted puede tomar su tiempo durante la prueba para conocer las características y todo lo que ofrece y ver por sí mismo lo grande que es.

"Powerful yet user friendly IDE"

What do you like best?

Functionality and integrations. With PhpStorm you can integrate many helper plugins like syntax highlighters, boilerplates for extensions and plugins. I am happy that PhpStorm is getting better from version to version and the community is really large. Another good point is PhpStorm's plugins repository which includes more and more plugins to making each aspect of the development process more effective and time-consuming.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes 99% of a processor usage which makes pc to become very slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am using PhpStorm for web development purposes and so far it has all the major integration into IDE by few clicks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The development process from A to Z can be easily managed by PhpStorm it has all major instruments to allow developers to organaize their codes and to send data into the cloud version control systems like Github, BitBucket, etc.

"Best PHP IDE out there"

What do you like best?

I've been using PHPStorm for years now and it is by far my favorite PHP IDE.

It offers code inspections, which can help you identify issues with your code, which can be helpful narrowing down the semicolon or comma you might have forgot to put in. It also checks your HTML and CSS. It allows you to connect to a remote host, pulling the files directly from your server to the IDE and putting your edited files directly on to the server.

The database integration is great too! It allows PHPStorm to check your SQL syntax.

PHPStorm has a plugin manager, allowing you to add more features to this, already, feature-rich software.

What do you dislike?

It can get pretty memory intensive, but that's a lot of the IntelliJ IDEs. Indexing files can also take some time as well.

PHPStorm is pretty slow to start up, but again, in my experience that's a lot of the IntelliJ IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PHPStorm is a feature-rich PHP IDE. I've found it increases productivity and helps narrow down syntax errors. While it may not be free like some of the IDEs out there, it is definitely well worth the price!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A lot of my company's websites utilize PHP, which lead to the need for a well put together PHP IDE. Using PHPStorm offered the best IDE we could find. The feature-rich software has led to increased productivity and faster development. It has also helped with identifying syntax errors.

"PHPStorm, siempre es mi primera opción para el desarrollo en PHP"

What do you like best?

Lo que encuentro que son las mejores características de PHPStorm incluyen acceso SSH, acceso FTP/SFTP, y las sugerencias de autoc-ompletar el código, colorear la sintaxis, y una comunidad respaldada detrás de ella que crea plugins. PHPStorm es extremadamente personalizable.

What do you dislike?

No me gusta el sistema de control GIT/versión que tiene PHPStorm. Si no tienes cuidado, podría volverse bastante desordenado. Aparte de eso, no tengo mucho más de qué quejarme.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PHPStorm en general tiene una interfaz gráfica de usuario con muchas características. Las funciones de auto-completar combinadas con la facilidad de uso realmente le permiten desarrollar con rapidez y concentrarse en el código en lugar de intentar que el programa funcione.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con PHPStorm puedo ver todos las carpetas y archivos en una barra lateral y administrar muy fácilmente nuestro marco de trabajo y sitio web, ahora puedo desarrollar más rápido.

"The best IDE ever!"

What do you like best?

I'm using PhpStorm for more than 18 months!! it's my favorite PHP IDE ever!

It provides the most tools the developer may need for development! Database browser, Remote host browser, and all customizations amazing integrity and compatibility with most components and technologies.

I like the kaymap and new features for the keyboard! like multiple lines selection

You don't have to worry about missing features or tools! because thousands of plugins is available in the repository

What do you dislike?

it costs a lot of memory and it takes some time to index project files!

every time you start the application you have to wait for indexing it depends on the hugeness of your project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use PhpStorm if you want fast coding, high integrity and compatible software! supporting almost all web development technologies! let you focus on the code not the environment!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Things are much simpler with PhpStorm, debugging PHP code using xdebug wasn't that easy without PhpStorm! now you can inspect a specific line of code and check local variables, not to mention the intermediate window!

using PhpStorm you can perform your tasks and code faster, without paying too much attention to the configurations and deployment, all you need set your configurations and go

"Best PHP-oriented Web Stack IDE One Can Find"

What do you like best?

PHPStorm provides a useful toolkit for search, that understands the code logic. Also, code inspections (if set up correctly) can save your nerve by making sure you don't omit commas, semicolons, or even spell your variables right, as well as checking CSS/HTML code compatibility. Built-in shell allows to debug scripts easily, and the plug-in system makes this software quite extensible. In addition to these, I find the variety of options and settings (divided into global settings and per-project settings) very comfortable, especially the fact that I can export and import them, and effortlessly move to a different computer while maintaining my code style, spacing & indentation, inspection patterns and syntax coloring.

What do you dislike?

A few things, which are fairly minor:

- When searching for usages of a function or method, there isn't an option to filter the usages found by arguments used in the calls (quite often I'm searching for usages of a certain optional argument that I need to change or remove from the function's declaration), so in order to find those I have to click through every usage, even if there are dozens of them

- Javscript, HTML and CSS validation is not always working correctly

- Javascript variable and function usage search often yields unrelated results, as if it were plain text search (my guess is, the software doesn't follow JS logic as professionally, as it does PHP logic); also, finding declarations is not always easy

- the software was written in JAVA and while it does perform fairly well on a machine with 8 GB or more RAM, it's still not as fast as I'd like it to be; particularly, I'd be willing to pay up to twice as much for an analogical piece of software written in C++ (which I'm sure would just fly like a rocket even on a poor old computer)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have to choose between Eclipse and PHPStorm, choose the latter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Minimizing software refactoring costs, saving time spent on text manipulations. I have realized the benefit of PHPStorm's smart logic that does some of the routing work for the developer.

"phpStorm Changed the Way I Work"

What do you like best?

I like that phpStorm gives me access to all the basic features I was used to having in my old IDE such as terminal, remote file browsing, database tools but phpStorm offers all that and so much more. I primarily do Magento development so the Magento plugins with auto-complete was a total game changer. Built in VCS for git and hg also streamlined the way I manage our code repos.

What do you dislike?

Its has a bit of a learning curve. Leaning what plugins to use and what works best for your projects takes some time. I develop on the Mac and the interface feels almost Windows-ish if you know what I mean.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it. Take time during the trial to get it properly set up for your projects. You won't regret it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

phpStorm has streamlined my development process. The time from dev to staging to production has decreased. My code is cleaner and the Magento plugins has increased my productivity.

"Effective, well-featured IDE for PHP development"

What do you like best?

All of the usual IDE features work well, good error prevention, auto-completion and search functions. Code quality analysis and code reformatting are very useful, especially for quickly cleaning up contributed or old legacy code to newer standards.

Automatically checking the server status of files on startup is useful, and the accurate deployment sync is very useful for us as we control the RCS from the server, rather than from the IDE.

What do you dislike?

PhpStorm doesn't like that our web root is below our project root. This is a minor irritation and doesn't affect us as we don't use the features which rely on a correctly set web root. Sometimes the SVN integration doesn't quite generate useful output, but again this doesn't affect us much as our workflow is better served using SVN on the server side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend PhpStorm to anyone looking for a good PHP IDE. After years of using nano because I found all other IDEs to be worth less than the hassle of using them, I'm pretty happy with PhpStorm. There are some quirks down to how our software is structured, but those are probably specific to us.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Switching to PhpStorm from nano provided immeasurable benefits, mostly to accuracy and avoiding silly syntax bugs that PhpStorm picks up. As you'd expect, the usual autocompletion is a huge time saver, especially for complex and rarely-used project-specific functions.

"One stop solution for all PHP project development"

What do you like best?

I use this software with the Laravel framework and clearly, this is the best tool I have used now. I have been using Adobe Dreamweaver before and I am very happy that I have migrated to PHP storm. The features that I like the most are:

1. Easy integration with PHP frameworks (like laravel)

2. In-built terminal, so you don't have to CD to the project directory to run your commands.

3. Highly configurable syntax highlighting and code-completion.

4. One of the best integration with Git.

What do you dislike?

I really miss the Dreamweaver's site manager like UI. However, PHPStorm does support FTP and SFTP, but the workflow is not same as Dreamweaver's site manager.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best IDE I have seen so far. Far much better than eclipse or eclipse based IDEs. If you are working on a large-scale project, then PHPstorm is the tool for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use PHPStorm for the projects development. The best benefit is PHP error detection. Not even of syntax, but semantics.

"Nice PHP IDE"

What do you like best?

This is the best PHP IDE I've worked with in years! Easy to use, fast and supports the new trends quickly in contrast to Eclipse etc. And the Github, SASS support is already included, that's just awesome! The Built in terminal and CI are a must for all apps, in combination with autocomplete, it's a next step. There aren't many companies that can say they have that.

What do you dislike?

It's a java program, like Eclipse, that causes a high memory usage, but that also makes it easier as cross platform. It's pricy indeed, but if you are a full time (PHP) developer. It's really ok. With an upgrade of the mobile device client, designer and memory usage, it can become one of the best IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very easy! If you only need to code it's ok. But if you use it in combination with Adobe, design programs, It's better to use a free program (eg. Atom) or Adobe Dreamweaver (if you use Adobe already).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy PHP Coding. Editing PHP files, version control. Drupal site building made easy. Cross platform development.

"PHP Storm"

What do you like best?

I like the fact PHP Storm highlights parts of your code and gives shortcuts to change the code to improve it. Like I had HTML in my code that could be done with CSS and it had it highlighted and marked depreciated, telling me to pres command-F1 to change it.

What do you dislike?

The down side to PHP Storm, like most coding programs is the out of the box intimidation, it can seem a little complex at first especially after coding with TextEdit and DreamWeaver for so long.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PHP Storm from what I have seen thus far is a very insightful program in helping write PHP code. It catches little depreciations and things that dreamweaver lets by and TextEdit just flat ignores.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PHPStrom has resolved a few issues I had with mark up on PHP with other coding programs. I realized that the other programs were falling short on aiding me in my PHP code and I was looking for something more.

"PhpStorm - Really good IDE for experienced QA / dev's "

What do you like best?

PhpStorm works really good with many file types, not only php. For example - json, twig framework, and even front-end files like .js, .css, .sass, etc.

While working with project locally we can quickly check app in different browser clients - at the right top corner we can see small icons of browsers, when editor is active.

Large base of plugins.

What do you dislike?

I really like this IDE but I think it's a little bit too expensive. At least for new developers. Also for just starting QA or developers it can be too much. You need to invest not only money but also a time to better meet PHPStorm and be more efficient.

I think also there should be a better other languages support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are beginner tester, QA or software developer, price of this software can be too high. Also, you maybe don't need all of tools that PhpStorm provides. But if simple and free editors like atom or sublime text are not enough for you, and most of the time, you are working with php, json, js, css files, then you should consider buying PhpStorm. It's really good, fast and solid tool.

Generally i will recommend this tool for mid and senior QA / developers, not necessarily as the best choice for beginners and juniors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Writing unit and automatic tests in PhpStorm is much easier than in normal editors like atom or sublime. If I cannot do something with pure version of PhpStorm It is easy to implement necessary plugin

"PHPStorm - Good IDE for PHP"

What do you like best?

IDE make it really easy for us to code. PHPStorm is very easy to use and has autocomplete features which enables us to write code in an efficient and factored way so that full team can understand it. There exsits other IDEs for PHP too but this is the best one.

What do you dislike?

Github integration would be really great which isn't there right now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth the money. There is 30-day trial too and education pack for students too. Go for it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

People in teams use PHPStorm to write modular code so that everyone can write one module at a time and the work division is top class. It's different than other ones in many ways that one can imagine of. It has ready made templates that you can directly use to kickstart any small or big projects, etc. Overall so many benefits that it's worth the time and money that we invest in it.

"Excellent IDE. can't work efficiently without it"

What do you like best?

Code completion, quickly able to jump to functions/methods through the whole project with a click, GIT integration and showing me my changes in any file and any line. The IDE starts quickly and even has a built-in database interaction.

What do you dislike?

The debugging modes are hard and complicated to use. Wish the spell checker/changer was quicker to access. Quickly renaming files would be nice. There are sometimes where I will click out of the IDE to a web browser (mostly Chrome) or email client and back the PHPStorm and my cursor will not show up and I can make any changes edits. To correct this I have to click out of the IDE and back in. Not a huge deal and it doesn't happen very often. If you can tell there is a lack of dislikes and needed to find something.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PHPStorm is worth the subscription. It has really helped me develop code efficiently and reliably.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing code for our site mostly all oh PHPStorm. The IDE is pretty solid and I can quickly edit & upload/commit code changes to get features/fixes to our site fast. I love to be able to quickly open a terminal with the direction already loaded and all within the IDE.

It also integrates well with Symfony and Laravel. It has the smart features which increase the developer's

efficiency and productivity in a lesser amount of time.

"The most complete IDE for PHP and Frontend"

What do you like best?

This IDE provides a lot of utilities to work on PHP projects. It gives a very good support for well-known PHP frameworks such as Symfony 2/3.3, Yii and a limited support on others frameworks such as Laravel (It could be better). It gives you an almost entire support for Symfony framework giving features such as navigations between routes and controllers, services, auto-completion in the Symfony annotations feature and much more.

It gives you an easy way to write, implement and run tests with PHPUnit.

It has a tool very useful to implement the git flow methodology on your version control system.

It gives you support for frontend frameworks such as Angular.js, Angular, React.js, Vue.js, jQuery, Bootstrap, Fontawesome and much others.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have a very good support for a very used PHP framework such as is Laravel, because it could have navigations between routes and controller actions as we can do it in Symfony,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives you the ability to work with Jira and manage your task registered on Jira it was very useful in the business of the company I'm working right now.

"PHP Storm Goes With PHP Perfectly"

What do you like best?

Finding bugs is key to any software, and the ability to plug in a PHP debugger is a prerequisite - especially for someone new to PHP. I found the installation and use of a debugger simple.

What do you dislike?

There are so many preferences and options, it can be quite overwhelming at first, but further down the line - as you get used to it, you will want most of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You could use any of the myriad editors out there, but PHP Storm will save you a lot of grief when you're trying to hook it up to all the other tools you will need if you want to write, version and publish software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been writing a cloud based app, and needed to ensure everything was saved to my CVS of choice, and propagated all the way to my live server. So I now have a fully integrated publishing system.

"Hands down the best PHP IDE on the Market"

What do you like best?

PHPStorm is extremely powerful and feature packed. The quality of the software is amazing too. A lot of PHP IDEs are shoddy and don't have a "professional" grade feel to them, but PHPStorm is definitely a pro-tier tool.

What do you dislike?

Like all good IDEs it can be intimidating to try to understand or even know about all the features, but I've yet to want a feature I wasn't able to find backed into PHPStorm.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You might not like the subscription based pricing model at first, but it's cheaper than Visual Studio and you always have a fallback license. There are regular updates as well. Don't balk if you're not used to such a pricing model

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is main development tool. I used to do .NET and after switching to PHP I tried VS Code with plugins, but it just wasn't what I needed. PHPStorm fit the bill

"Helps me work smarter"

What do you like best?

The best aspect of PHPStorm in my opinion is the thoroughness with which it's developers sought to address common programming dilemmas. This IDE not only checks your syntax, but your semantics. For example, when I was programming with Javascript, I mistakenly set the width of an object to the height of another object. To my suprise, PHPStorm realized my error and warned me that I should probably not be assigning "height" to "width". This is just a microcosm of the overall usefulness of this program.

What do you dislike?

One slight annoyance with PHPStorm is the duplicate function (Command + D). It works as expected for one line of code, but when I want to duplicate multiple lines I need to select 2 extra lines above the block of code I selected for the function to work as desired. This would be great thing to change in a future update.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get to know key features of the editor before starting. The more you know, the more you will be able to truly make use of the immense power at your fingertips. Even after years of using the editor, I am continually discovering new features that boost my productivity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PHPStorm's comprehensive support for PHP, Java, and MySQL has enabled me and my coworkers to modify our entire application seamlessly. The quick keyboard shortcuts and common-sense design principles of PHPStorm enable us to work quickly, efficiently, and to the utmost quality.

"Good All-round IDE for Php Developers"

What do you like best?

I have found that the code completion and automatic indentation helps me format and present good code. Its handy that it has a dark mode which really helps while coding. The colour scheme really is useful with code highlighting.

What do you dislike?

I have found while working with php storm that when you create a new project you have to remember to select automatic upload when dealing with remote projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with one project get a feel for the tools and features

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building web applications and linking these with apps. PhpStorm sits well in a suite of applications. It is also very similar to the IED for Android based on the same base applications which makes switching to Android development very simple.

"Awesome IDE"

What do you like best?

The user interface is very beautiful.There is a free version so you only need to pay for professional support if you need.You can use it on linux, Mac, Windows, and export-import the settings in one second. If you can't find the language support or feature you need, there are lots of downloadable plugins, or you can make a request to the developers via their issue tracker

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it gets a bit slow but it isn't really imortant. There's nothing I disliked about the program so far

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a worth buying. You should use the free veersion and if you like you can buy the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"If you work with PHP in a developer capacity you need this"

What do you like best?

PHPStorm collects all of the tools I would use for my job into one application. Everything from terminal windows built in to the ability to run different code linters. The interface is easy to understand and you can get working pretty quickly after getting into the software. I particularly like being able to just click and run vagrat, npm, and gulp tasks right from a toolbar without having to enter a single command.

What do you dislike?

With all of those features baked into the app, the thing is heavy. If you have multiple instances running at once it will definitely start to affect the performance of your machine. The built-in version control is nice, but stuck somewhere between useful and not quite useful enough.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is expensive, but the amount of time it will save your developers is definitely worth it. This is especially true for full-stack developers as this offers a wide-range of very needed tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of our development team is using PHPStorm after years of using other IDE's. It has saved us a lot of time over the years as we have further taken advantage of the features it offers. We are able to better integrate with tools because we can run commands through the GUI. We definitely are developing faster thanks to it and the code sniffing is great. Many bugs are found long before executing the code so that we can avoid the little mistakes that can plague a project.

Helpful?
