Ide.php is a web-based editor for PHP, and any server-side scripting like SSI, ASP, JSP, SSJS, even CGI. It offers a rapid prototyping environment, letting the user test and save snippets of code with minimal overhead. Whether an experienced programmer or a novice, there is often a need to try out smaller pieces of code during program development. Ide.php makes this very easy. Ide.php eliminates the need to use several separate programs (text editor, FTP program and web browser) for PHP development, since all work is done directly through the browser. This helps to shorten development time, and is also very helpful when learning to program with PHP. Ide.php requires PHP version 4 or higher.
