I downloaded Netbeans week or two ago and I found all that. I thought there is something more advanced (these things have any decent editor/ide (for example eclipse + pdt also have all that)). We are talking completely different level of checks :-) In the end I may switch to non-free version of Codenizer (unless
someone points me how to check for at least non-initialized variables with
Netbeans, and save me 20$ :-)

Netbeans does have some sick fanciness...  Auto-suggest, leaving your
cursor over a variable momentarily highlights it everywhere in the code and define labeled folding points. You can press CTRL-R to rename that variable everywhere it is used in the code. If you can figure out how to set it up with xdebug (I'm working on it) then you can have step-by-step debugging. NetBeans is well worth giving a chance, in my opinion. You can check out
some videos if you don't want to risk the time. (

I have been using same program for some (not very long time), and I find it very useful, although it has some annoying things (inability to work with all kinds of include expressions). Still I think every serious PHP developer
should consider using something like this.

Hi guys,

Check out Netbeans IDE for PHP.

Your wishes answered.
Though it doesn't have "use strict" but it tracks variables for you.


Can you please elaborate on this (using Netbeans to track variables), I
know what Codenizer does, but I didn't manage to make Netbeans to do this "variable track"? Few guys also mentioned that but I couldn't really find
that feature?
