    Question



    Hey,

    I'm thinking of changning my standard editor. I'm looking for a cool asp, php and jsp editor that runs on both Linux and Windows. Nothing fancy needed, syntax coloring and ftp-support.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks...

    I really like EditPlus, but it does not run on Linux as far as I know. It has all of the other features you wanted though. Check it out at http://www.editplus.com

    Full Featured editor I use is PHP Coder Pro from ST software. Not sure of their URl.
    Freeware version available at download.com
    I beleive they have windows/linux/mac versions available as well as open source.
    The software has a dreamweaver type setup with code and browser display on one screen(must have PHP engine installed).
    Does not support ASP or JSP. Dreamweaver UltraDev does but its not cheap.
    Best of luck

    asp can't run on linux cuz it require IIS to run...and IIS will only run on Win32 systems...dunno about jsp cuz i dont use it, and php will run on anything that has php installed on it, but you won't find a single program that will run on both platforms (if you do let me know so i can see how they accomplished it

    Well... I'm not looking for an editor that uses a script engine. I'm looking for a "text editor with syntax highlighting and ftp support" for JSP, ASP and PHP.

    And, you can run ASP on Linux with ChiliASP. ;-)

    the editor i mentioned does not require an engine but wont be able to test view your work.i highly recommend adding an engine and a http server. they are both free and easy to use.
    good luck

    I test it in a broswer... might be a slow way to work.

    I might try an editor with an engine.

    Thanks.

    I use vim (vi - improved). I supports dozens of programming languages(JSP, PHP, PERL, many more) I did not see ASP though. My version is about a year old, I would it has been added. I work on many platforms I have both UNIX and windows versions. For UNIX I use vim -g (open in its own window). On windows its call gvim. It has excellent syntax highlighting. I modified the syntax.vim file for the highlight I like, then copied that file to all the computers I use. Now every computer I use and every language I use has the same syntax highlighting. I don't think you can ftp from it, but what do you expect for free.

    Thumbs up Cool editor for PHP et all


    Try UltraEdit32 for Windows - I'm not sure what other OS's it supports, but it's a damned good program if you need colors when editting, like me:

    http://www.ultraedit32.com

    You can build your own dictionary files to define what is highlighted and how it's highlighted... there's a great chatter board on the site to help you if you get stuck, and it even handles editing of pages that you suck down by FTP, rather well.

    I like it. I use it all the time
