What do you like best?

Codelobster is versatile and has an elegant interface design. I like it because it supports a variety of programming languages. What struck me most is that its console and its autocomplete tool, which although it must be configured before use, is a very complete tool. I am also surprised with the ease of opening large files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am not at all happy with the add-ons of this editor, since they lack integration with git and the add-on that is installed is very limited. Another tool that does not work correctly is the debugger that takes too long to run. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Codelobster will help you address the problems of your lines of code very easily. I recommend it, especially if your work is related to PHP and HTML. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Codelobster has reduced the time I spent writing lines of code through its autocomplete syntax tool. Other benefits of this editor is its syntax highlighting, which allows better visibility of the item to be highlighted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Codelobster in my opinion is one of the most complete IDEs that exist. The best thing is that it supports multiple languages such as HTML, C, Java, Python, Javascript, PHP and others to mention. I like that it has an integrated code debugger. The user interface is what every developer needs in their development environment: order, color and compatibility. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In some cases, the software in its version for Linux may become slow and take time to run. You may also have errors with plugins, especially those related to proxy connections, so be sure to open a specific port for this IDE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It has a simple to use interface. You can create project files and also has autocomplete built in (obviously if it's an IDE). There are multiple plugins in the professional version. The syntax it supports currently is PHP 7.x, HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. The price is about mid-level (compared to other PHP IDEs) but they do it have for cheaper sometimes on software deals site. I found with other IDEs your having to pay to upgrade to the next "major release" (which actually is not much different than the previous version) and with CodeLobster, you're only paying once. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface could use an upgrade. As an example, you can rename files but you can't copy, move, or delete them from within the IDE. To do this, you have to open Windows File Explorer, copy/move/delete it and then go back to CodeLobster and reload the project (causing a one-step process to turn into a three-step process). On top of that, if you reload a project after updating Composer packages, it sometimes crashes (maybe a way to manage Composer from within the IDE?). Their website is also a bit outdated. There are the plugins for it but they're all from CodeLobster and it'd be good if third-parties could create their own plugins for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a product that gets the job done and doesn't need to be an over the top extraordinary PHP IDE, CodeLobster is the one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to code in PHP without having to break out more money every year for the same product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

II like how it does PHP, JavaScript, CSS, etc highlighting right out of the box. I like the different themes so depending on the place I'm at, I can change how it looks to make it easier to see with just a few clicks. Being able to pair this with Filezilla and locally editing individual files is awesome. I love how it will automatically put the ending curly bracket when you put down an opening one.

We do Joomla development and we have used the Joomla plugin to create the skeleton of Joomla components and Modules in the past and the skeletons are pretty useful for people starting out in creating custom Joomla extensions from scratch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Every time I upgrade (install a new version), all my settings get reset and I have to go in and re-set everything back up. This includes any custom theme colors, tool bars, panel positions, closed panels, etc. Basically it resets all the settings every time you upgrade to a new version.

The only recognition for Joomla calls is if you are in a Joomla Project created inside the premium plugin. I'd like to be able to add include paths or reference paths in general to make it easy to work on multiple sites easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Play with the free version and Trial before you buy. The free version has a lot to offer right out of box. But if you develop for some of the platforms they have premium plugins for, give them a try as they can save you some time starting out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us not make careless errors like missing a semicolon on the end of a statement or a missing bracket. inside the same file, it helps us make sure the variable is spelled correctly and has the proper case. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Some of the styles come with some annoyances built in and take some time and learning to tweak to be usable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As a full IDE it may be lacking some features, but compared to solutions like text editors it has more features. It fits a nice middle of the road product which is what I prefer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Project management, lightweight, syntax highlighting, support of multiple PHP frameworks, customization Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No ColdFusion support; little documentation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be aware that the free version comes with a Pro version trial. Unless you intend to subscribe to the Pro version in the future, don't develop your applications with the special framework plugins because you'll lose the ability to use those tools after the trial expires.

Used in the rapid development of intranet applications at work. Even the free version of the software outdoes Dreamweaver as an IDE in syntax highlighting, ease of use, CPU/memory usage and features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very much lightweight, easy to setup, easy to use. Supports my favorite frameworks which i work all the times. Price is very much lower than other IDE softwares. Support multiple payment method via AvanGate. Support all the major Windows OS. Giving free Life Time Update facility. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Free version does not have all the features. If you want all the features, you will have to order for Professional version that supports all the features what they written in their website. Free version has very much limited availability.

But for advanced developers, you will agree to purchase Professional version as because you wanted do some real time works.

Their user interface is very much normal. Would like to see advance development and better UI design. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They have lightweight and speed fast IDE which supports HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL facilities with Version controlling and FTP features. Also have popular framework supports which will give you snippets to work more fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They are best in their place as because they supports web development features with extra framework plugin like, Laravel, Yii, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, WordPress, Drupal, jQuery etc. This is the one tool that supports all the things.

By using this tools, they are very much lightweight. Speed, Reliable, Fast and good debugging facility. Although support version controlling system and FTP access as well.

I am not very much familiar with SASS and LESS but this software do support these kind of Cascading Style Sheets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
