Develop both with PHP and .NET?

If you’re a seasoned developer and work in both  .NET and also PHP – then you’ll be interested in VS.PHP from JCX Software.  They have 2 main products:

  • A Visual Studio Add-in for developing PHP
  • A stand-alone VS 2005 PHP Editor (using the VS 2005 redistributable wrapping their Add-in

If you’re used to the VS 2005 interface – you’ll find it a real boon with a familiar environment to work in.  It even understands and supports the development of Smarty templates. 

I’ve found it to be very performant and much less of a resource-hog than the Zend IDE – which, after running for long periods of time, tends to lock up and become unstable.

 It’s well priced (at 99 USD) – they’re not trying to gouge you like some development tools that charge high annual tie-in ‘subscription’ fees for development tools.

The current version of VS.PHP is 2.1 with a beta for 2.3 openly available.
