PhpStorm vs RequireJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe PhpStorm as "Professional IDE for PHP and Web Developers". PhpStorm is a PHP IDE which keeps up with latest PHP & web languages trends, integrates a variety of modern tools, and brings even more extensibility with support for major PHP frameworks. On the other hand, RequireJS is detailed as "JavaScript file and module loader". RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

PhpStorm can be classified as a tool in the "Integrated Development Environment" category, while RequireJS is grouped under "Front End Package Manager".

"Best ide for php", "Easy to use" and "Functionality" are the key factors why developers consider PhpStorm; whereas "Open source", "Modular script loader " and "Asynchronous " are the primary reasons why RequireJS is favored.

RequireJS is an open source tool with 12.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RequireJS's open source repository on GitHub.

Lyft, 9GAG, and Typeform are some of the popular companies that use PhpStorm, whereas RequireJS is used by Uber Technologies, Coursera, and Asana. PhpStorm has a broader approval, being mentioned in 646 company stacks & 502 developers stacks; compared to RequireJS, which is listed in 916 company stacks and 185 developer stacks.

    No real definitive reason, I find it to be the most natural way to import libraries and code in nodejs (prior to ES6 / import).

    Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.

    Writing software, navigating code bases, and refactoring code. Intellisense and click through are heavily used features here.

    The RequireJS package manager is used by various web applications and services to manage dependencies on 3rd party libraries.

    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.

    Mailer, forms; anything that I feel PHP can still provide advantages simply AngularJS/MEAN stack

    Very nice way to structure a project, as long as you know it will not be a hybrid app.

    RequireJS is the main component until Magento 2.2.x for frontend development.

    It's really the only PHP IDE to bother with in our experience.
