Zend Studio - the PHP IDE for smarter development

With 3X faster performance, Zend Studio allows you to code faster, debug more easily, and take advantage of the massive performance gains in PHP 7. This is the next-generation PHP IDE designed to create high-quality PHP apps while boosting developers’ productivity.  It automatically scales according to the DPI settings of the underlying operating system, and supports HiDPi displays. Zend Studio is everything you need to work with if you manage web and mobile applications written in PHP. Zend Studio is awesome when it comes to prototyping, developing, testing, debugging and running your critical PHP apps. If you develop mobile apps, Zend Studio handles both server and client side for you. A real time saver! I enjoy the wizards, which help to configure my cloud instances access and the Composer single click dependencies installation. My favorite is the Git/Gihub support! I also use YAML, and although Studio does not support it natively, there’s an Eclipse plug-in for that!
