A php, html and css editor

Right i’m running Linux Suse 11.2 with Gnome 2.28 and i want to install a php, html and css editor but i don’t know which one to use or how to go about installing it on linux

Is there any tutuorials or guides on installing software on linux suse 11.2 and which editor would you recomment?

I like/use bluefish 2.0 (http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/) from the
editors repository. Just press the one-click and follow the
instructions, however ensure you “uncheck” the box ‘remain subscribed
to repository after installation’ the reason is to ensure you keep the
active repositories to the minimum.

Hi thanks for the suggestion! It look good. When you say just “Just press the one-click and follow the
instructions” i’m lost, sorry i’m new to linux…

I’ve recently been using NetBeans](http://netbeans.org/) with the PHP](http://netbeans.org/features/php/index.html) and Database](http://netbeans.org/features/ide/database.html) plug-ins. It’s allowed me to modify the database and the php/css/js pages in one IDE.

I like it because I’m in the process of teaching myself PHP, coming from a Visual Studio and ASP.NET (VB.NET variety).

Another possibility is Aptana Studio](http://www.aptana.org/) which is either an Eclipse plug-in or a stand-alone app. It also is supposed to be pretty good with Ajax and Ruby on Rails, though I haven’t gotten into either one of those yet. I’ve found Aptana to be a little heavy for my system (1.6GHz Pent. M w/512 MB Ram).

Bluefish](http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/) is supposed to be pretty good (for Gnome) and Quanta Plus](http://quanta.kdewebdev.org/) is supposed to be a very good IDE even though it’s built for KDE.

Of course there is Eclipse](http://www.eclipse.org/) with it’s extensive list of plug-ins, which may be a little trickier at setting up.

Kompozer](http://www.kompozer.net/) is a MS Front-Page-like application and while pretty good, is not necessarily the best tool. I think it focuses more for the WYSIWYG type programming.

Another thing to remember is the Text Editor (gEdit) allows for color syntax for PHP, CSS, JS and a wide variety of other programming languages. It’s included in the base installation so you should have it already.

Many of these should be found in the repositories so they are available through Yast’s installing software feature. You can read more on installing software via Yast at http://en.opensuse.org/YaST_Software_Management](http://en.opensuse.org/YaST_Software_Management)

I generally like to use geany… small and lightweight IDE/text editor.

Here’s the link :slight_smile:

Geany : Home Page

I like the sound of netbeans and i’ve used aptana before so i’ll try get these two installed and take it from there.

Thanks for your help guys.

I have a couple of other questions regarding software for coding.

Is there a good local server enviroment like Xampp or Wamp for windows avaible for linux

And what a good FTP manager where you can store the ftp details as a site, like in dreamweaver. & have a local copy which stays permanent.

Thanks For Your Help!

What’s wrong with setting up Xampp](http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html)? I started off with this for my PHP work before saying the heck with it and installing the full LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) stack.

Changing the permissions to the actual /www folder I am able to directly place the updated PHP files there. It may not be the best method, but it works for me at this point.

Could start with looking at what Xampp includes, though I haven’t a clue what 1/2 of them are for.

What’s wrong with Kate? I find it quick and no unnecessary visual pollution.

Isn’t Kate usually a KDE app? Since he’s running Gnome then I think gEdit is the close equivalent.

I’m not trying to start a KDE vs Gnome issue here, though.

Hash: SHA1

Yes, but you can run it under Gnome if you have both environments installed.

Good luck.

Version: GnuPG v2.0.12 (GNU/Linux)

Yes, but if there is a Gnome-native application already installed, is there any benefit Kate has over gEdit?

@Luminosity, FWIW here’s the address of the editor’s repository [e.g. for Bluefish]


You can add it in Yast → Software → Software Repos → Add → Specify URL

Thanks for your help guys!

I’ll start with the software off the repositories link and learn my around linux then choice my prefrence from there :slight_smile:

And i’ll go with xampp didn’t realise it was on linux. to be fair i havne’t looked :frowning:

For local server environment you could

Yast > Software Management > from the View Drop Down select Patterns > scroll down to Web Development and check it then Accept

From Yast > System > System Services ( runlevel) > Enable Apache > Save. This will get Apache and PHP running at boot each time.

This will install Apache web server and basic PHP. Your site files will store in home folder public_html.

gFTP or FileZilla are both Good FTP clients.

There are currently two versions of Mysql Ajax Table Editor available. A free version which is released under the GNU LGPL license and a paid version. The paid version has some new powerful features such as file upload support, browser forward and back functionality, bookmarkable searches and a new user friendly filtering system.
