    I was just wondering what you would recommend as a good editor when creating your plugins. I use NetBeans but I am thinking of using something else.

    Hi there. I personally use PHPStorm. I'm also very sure majority of us here use PHPStorm aswell.

    I use NetBeans. I tried PHPStorm, and it was just too much of a transition for me. It's really just about personal preference, though. You can drop money on a JetBrains subscription, but that won't make you good at programming. You can buy a nice car, but it won't make you a good driver. It's more luxurious, sure, but it's not necessarily more practical for your personal use.

    I agree with you, I'm not a great programmer either :D

    You can use that if you know the PMMP API, which means you are good! If you're like me, then PHPStorm, NetBeans will be the best bet. I'd love to use Sublime Text 3 but the down part is that I can't really 'include a dir' to source the codes from..

    My point is that sublime text isn't much different from vim. Just a text editor anyway.
    BTW don't call phpstorm an IDE if you aren't using it to build or execute plugins. Most people are just using it as a text editor, which is a big waste.
    I wouldn't agree on the word "luxurious". You pay for phpstorm because it's better, not because you can show off to people that you paid.

    I get your point, but don't get me wrong. I do use PHPStorm to build and execute plugins with the integrated CLI and also other stuffs with Laravel and other Web related stuffs.

    I think NetBeans is the best personally.
    I have used PHPStorm but i don't like that i have to pay to use it.
    They are both nice and simple as well as well as NetBeans auto indenting on using format

    The correct answer is: Use whatever you feel more comfortable with.
    I have tried many IDEs and code editors, personally, PHPStorm is what suits me best...

    ... and you can get it for free with the GitHub student pack ;)

    Vim is one or the text editors with both the most lovers and the most haters in history. Try googling "vim Stockholm syndrome" :)
