Here Is a Nice Coding Editor For PHP, XML, HTML, CSS and Javascript

Its name is CodeLobster and it’s the editor used for most of the recent upgrades to the software on CalendarScripts (except those that was made under Linux). It’s a Windows editor for editing text files, CSS, Javascript, PHP, HTML and XML.

The basic version of the editor is free. There are some plugins form Drupal, Joomla, Smarty, WordPress, JQuery and CodeIgniter at reasonable price. I never needed those so I haven’t tried them, but for someone who us coding a lot on these platforms it might be a good option.

Before CodeLobster I used CrimsonEditor for years but it really had a lot of problem and even it’s inheritor Emerald Editor still has most of them. CodeLobster is far more advanced, has Class and Functions view, good cross-file search, auto-complete, excellent syntax highlight and good auto-indentations.

At this point the main problem with it is that it crashes often without any reason. Hopefully the guys will fix that in some of the next version.

Overall rating: 8 out of 10.
