Hello all. I believe I posted a thread about this topic a few weeks ago but it seems my account was deleted and I cannot find the original thread. Also, I was sure whether to place this thread here or in the scripting forum but I thought I would start here.
Anyways, I have recently begun coding PHP for web content in Linux and I was curious as to any good editors out there. I have searched for a while and came up with nothing. The two suggested to me originally were Quanta+ and Bluefish. Unfortunately I cannot use Quanta+ as the desktop I am using is not KDE and I'm using Bluefish now but I don't really like it because the syntax highlighting is not very good.
That said, features I am looking for are syntax highlighting and line numbering mostly for debugging purposes.
Thanks in advance.
You might look at gedit, emacs, gvim, vim, jEdit,
You can still run Quanta even if not using kde.
Libraries are not exclusive to certain desktops. Quanta can be used even if you don't use KDE.
Having said that, I used to use Bluefish. You can press F5 to refresh the highlighting if it fails (as it does fairly often), but I've been a fan of that program.
You might also check out your choice of vi and Emacs. Both have the full gamut of features, and if you're familiar with either, you'll find PHP to be easy to do.
You can also take a look at SciTE to see if it does what you need:
