Free PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript editor - Codelobster PHP Edition

Codelobster-PHP edition has been a top of the line software tool to edit web languages for a long time now and has a lot of fans. In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know in order to get adequately familiarized with it. With Codelobster, you can edit PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript files with ease. The syntax highlighting feature along with the hints for functions, their parameters and tags make the coding experience efficient. If your file has mixed content then too you don’t have to worry because the tool deals with such files easily as well. For example, if you add PHP code to a HTML template, then Codelobster will accurately highlight both the functions written in PHP and the tags of HTML separately, allowing you to differentiate between them. The same is applicable to CSS or JavaScript code that is often contained within HTML files. The tool also comes with the auto-completion feature which makes your code error-prone and also speeds up the programming process.

By downloading the latest documentation from the official websites, Codelobster offers contextual help related to all supported programming languages. So, if you are working with a new JavaScript or PHP function or a HTML tag or a CSS attribute, then you can know more details about them by just pressing the F1 key. Users can execute PHP scripts step by step by sequentially traversing the code lines with the default PHP debugger that comes built-in with Codelobster. Viewing the loop work process, observing the variable values and assigning check points is all possible. The built-in template viewer allows you to view HTML templates from within the editor; you can highlight any element you want on the page or go through the associated CSS styles. The HTML and CSS inspector contains all the features of the famous FireBug debugging tool.
