Interest for a PHP IDE Plugin

Interest for a PHP IDE Plugin

Postby Devon Weller on Fri Apr 19, 2013 5:09 pm

I've been using Sublime for PHP coding for a while now. I have the SublimeCodeIntel and CTags plugins running. And they do what they are supposed to.

But I would like better, more intelligent code completion in Sublime. Think static analysis and code completion a la PhpStorm.

What level of interest is there for a more full-blown PHP IDE plugin for Sublime Text? Is this something the community would help with? Is this something people would fund on Kickstarter?

Let's discuss and perhaps we can make a great editor even better for PHP programming.

Cool. Anyone have any ideas for a name?

Let the brainstorming begin...

Here are some bad ideas, anyone think of any that are better?

Sublimelight
SubPHP
PHP-Phil (like auto fill... Get it?)
PHP-You-Complete-Me
PHPIntel
SmartPHPCompletionator

Maybe these will spark some ideas.

I would like to suggest to keep it simple:

- PHP-IDE
- PHP-ing ( taken from "Happy PHP-ing" - my favourite :) )
- PHP-Force ( may the Force be with you ;) )
- PHP-Sublimed
- PHP-Sublimated

I like your suggestion PHP-Intel too. Maybe expanded to PHP-Intelli-sense?

Cheers

I agree. I think a variant on PHPIntel is probably the most straightforward name that explains what the plugin does.

A quick search turned up this and this.

I'll need to check these out and see how far along these projects are. Perhaps it will be better to just contribute to these projects.

I just want something that works well and saves me time. I'm always opening class files and hunting for method signatures. I just want to save that time.

Good point!

I think SublimePHPIntel is in the good way, although it has nothing new for 5 months.

The other project only has the initial commit, a year ago.

I think SublimePHPIntel is a good reference for some of the Python code.

I couldn't get the plugin to work (see the github issue) but in looking at the source code, it doesn't appear to do much more than CTags for PHP would do. It doesn't appear to have any intelligence about which class you are completing. And I don't think it accounts for inheritance.
