What You See is… Well, You Know - PHP

One of the things I hear from people and my friends is questions about the best way to work with PHP. They always want to know how to get started on a project, what software to use, how to plan it successfully, and so on. In this article I plan on revealing the “magical secrets” about how I do my PHP programming so quickly with so few bugs.

I regret to tell you that what you see isn’t always what you get. There are many different HTML editing programs out there; the top two are Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe GoLive.

Macromedia Dreamweaver is the choice of most people, mostly because of the dynamic language capabilities. However, as a true PHP programmer that should be no concern of yours, as true PHP programmers do all their PHP by hand instead of letting a program generate it for them. So basically it comes down to what you prefer. Until you actually take a look at both programs.

Personally after much time, use, and thought, I’ve found that Adobe GoLive would be the best choice for a PHP programmer. Due to the fact that it has a more familiar interface for those used to using Photoshop. I’ve also found that it has real time WYSIWYG capabilities while with Dreamweaver, you have to refresh after you make a change, and not to mention, it has real time rendering that will show you the HTML in small emulators of each browser.

However, like I said, it’s really up to you and your personal preference as to which HTML editor you use.
