      There are many Text Editors and IDEs available for PHP. Sublime Text is the best of all. Super lite-weight.

      My favorite code editor. So much power and elegance in one package, and more plugins than you can shake a stick at! And the Package Control package manager makes it easy to keep up with them all.

      It's simple and very malleable. You can use it anywhere. You can customise it to behave as you want it to behave, look as you want it to look. And you can use it on any desktop operating system.
