CodeLobster has released CodeLobster PHP Edition 3.8.1, a free portable Windows IDE that makes it quicker and easier to develop full-featured, PHP-based websites. CodeLobster PHP Edition lets software developers, webmasters, website designers, and computer consultants build PHP programs, without having to purchase an expensive PHP IDE.

CodeLobster PHP Edition includes all of the features that you would expect to find in a pricey software package. You don’t need to memorize the names of functions, arguments, tags, or attributes because the software has autocomplete coding for PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and even SQL. With its powerful PHP debugger, color-coded highlighting, and context and dynamic help files, CodeLobster PHP Edition lets you create solid PHP programs in less time.

The program’s HTML/CSS code inspector makes it simple to locate code and styles anywhere in your web page. The debugger is easy to configure. Debugging functions include Step Into and Step Over, and you can watch user variables, local variables, and the Call Stack as you step through the program.

CodeLobster PHP Edition contains dozens of additional features, including code folding (collapsing), a portability option, highlighting of paired tags and attributes, tooltips that display the values of variables marked with your mouse cursor, class view, and a project manager.

Whether you’re a website designer who needs an efficient IDE for your PHP development projects, a network administrator who needs an easy way to build PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript pages quickly, or a computer consultant who needs a consistent way to build PHP code for customers’ websites, CodeLobster PHP Edition has the tools that you need.

CodeLobster offers a powerful Professional version of its PHP IDE which includes plug-ins for the most popular content management systems (CMS) and frameworks. In addition to all of the features in the free version, the $99.95(US) Professional version includes plug-ins for the WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal CMS environments; plug-ins for the CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Facebook, Symfony, Smarty, and Yii frameworks; support for the JQuery JavaScript library; and a SQL Manager.
