recommend an IDE?

I have been using phpStorm for the past year. But I am having some trouble doing remote debugging and think that it might be a phpStorm/xdebug bug. What other IDE's have CI people used successfully while working on remote servers?

You need to do the following to set this up for PHP development

In Tools -> Plugins > Settings you need to add the plugin catalog from version 8.2


Then you can install the PHP development plugins.

After that  you can do 2 things to enable autocomplete and hints:

1, set up namespaces and everything will work fine

2,If you do not want to fool around with namespaces and setting up composer, etc.. then in the folder of your project there will be a "nbproject" directory. In this directory create another one called "ci_autocomplete" and create a file in there called autocomplete.php with the below contents

PHP Code:


 * @property CI_DB_forge $dbforge
 * @property CI_Benchmark $benchmark
 * @property CI_Calendar $calendar

i use phpstorm - but i know alot of devs who are using vs code https://code.visualstudio.com

Thanks. I have come to the conclusion that my phpStorm is working fine. It is my Apache config under Linux that is screwed up; works fine under Windows.
