When I switched to Visual Studio Code 12 months ago from PhpStorm I was in love, it was great. However after using VS Code for a year, I see myself switching back and forth between WebStorm and VS Code. The VS Code plugins are great however I notice Prettier, auto importing of components and linking to the definitions often break, and I have to restart VS Code multiple times a week and sometimes a day.
We use Ruby here so I do like that Visual Studio Code highlights that for me out of the box, with WebStorm I'd need to probably also install RubyMine and have 2 IDE's going at the same time.
Should I stick with Visual Studio Code, or switch to something else? #help
There are many PHP IDE's currently available but PhpStorm just beats them all! It's availanle for every OS. Fast, Feature-rich, Customizable, etc etc etc. It just has it all! Highly recommended for any Web Apps Developer who takes his job seriously. This is the main tool that you don't want to miss.
Writing software, navigating code bases, and refactoring code. Intellisense and click through are heavily used features here.
Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.
Self taught : acquired knowledge or skill on one's own initiative. Platform: OSX 10.8 or later, Windows 7 & 10' Linux
The best PHP editor. Also is a great MySQL/SQLite datasource browser, text editor, and I think it makes coffee too.
The best PHP editor available. We really don't know how we managed to do anything before using this fantastic tool.
I use as Java IDE for Spring. A packaged eclipse version exists. It was called STS (Spring Tool Suite).
Mailer, forms; anything that I feel PHP can still provide advantages simply AngularJS/MEAN stack
