Zend Studio is the professional PHP IDE designed to create robust PHP apps while boosting developers’ productivity. It is the only PHP IDE that combines mobile development with PHP and includes a sample mobile application with source code.
Why Zend Studio?
The advanced code editor features make you more productive with intuitive code assist, smart code completion, refactoring, real-time error validation and analyis, and more.
Black is Back - the latest version of Zend Studio has various theme options including the highly requested dark theme. It also includes split editor functionality and multi-cursor support.
Mobile App Development
Zend Studio facilitates the creation of mobile applications on top of your existing PHP applications and server back-end.
Integration with Apache Cordova, Ionic, and Angular JS makes it easy to create cross platform mobile apps. Write your app with HTML5/CSS/JS and compile it for the platform you need: Android, iOS or Windows.
Sample Mobile App w/ source code
Zend Studio goes even further. It includes a fully working mobile app with its source code. You can use the code to learn how to create mobile apps or leverage it for your own applications. Study it, copy it, edit it. It's all yours to work with.
Integration with various emulators for different environments makes it easy to see how you app will actually look and behave on a mobile device.
Debugging and Profiling
Zend Studio provides 2 options to debug your code. The robust ZendDebugger and Xdebug. With such a dual debugging option, you get more advanced debugging capabilities. For faster development, Studio will automatically detect and validate your PHP binary or local server settings.
Using Zend Server? The combination of Zend Server, Z-Ray and Studio takes debugging to a all new level. Z-Ray let's you identify hidden bugs and application performance issues that no debugger could ever catch. Open a debugging or profiling session directly from Z-Ray and use the tight integration with Zend Studio to fix the code and performance issues.
Source Control and Built-in Tools
Enhanced source control integration helps you work smoothly with SVN, CVS, Git, and GitHub. Import easily your existing repositories into your workspace, and collaborate with other team members.
Testing: Streamlined PHPUnit workflows for writing and executing unit testing help you write more reliable code.
Dependency management: The new Composer support lets you easily browse and manage project dependencies and repositories.
Code Documentation: The Integrated PHPDocumentor 2 facilitates a quick and easy generation of user-friendly documentation.
The richest library of plug-ins and add-ons
Based on the Eclipse platform, Zend Studio gives you access to the largest eco-system of add-on features and plug-ins. Add any plug-ins you need directly from within the welcome screen.
Web Server Integration
Zend Studio supports any and all servers. But if you need a server based on a certified PHP stack, Zend Server is the obvious solution. You benefit from application monitoring, manage server-side libraries. Whether it's on premise - Windows, Linux, Mac OS, or IBM i - or in the cloud, Studio provides seamless integration and unmatched hassle-free application deployment to Zend Server and other servers.
