Good free PHP IDE for linux
I am looking to see if anyone recommends a good free php ide in Linux. I use Zend at work and love it, but i'm not really looking to spend $300 for personal use.

I been googling, but nothings really caught my eye... anyone have any personal experience with anything??

Personally, I like Komodo Edit. It's "free as in beer", if that matters to you, and is more of an editor than a full-blown IDE, but the PHP parser is quite good and it's my favorite so far. I used to use Quanta+, which wasn't too bad and had the advantage of being KDE-based, so it integrated with the rest of my desktop. One of my co-workers swears by the PHP plugin for Eclipse. I believe it's fairly popular, though I didn't care for it myself.

Depends what you want really. I don't personally like a full-blown IDE myself, I just use Kate or Quanta Plus. But then I've not used Zend, so maybe I don't know what I'm missing.

Just load the PDT plugin for eclipse and use that, it works well for me, granted it won't create Zend Framework projects, other than that it is a good plugin and I use it all the time.

i checked out komodo edit.. it seems pretty nice. i'll play around with some more, but might just end up biting the bullet with zend. thanks for the suggestions

I use Geany (very nice editor), SWMBO uses Quanta Plus (aka kdewebdev). Bluefish is another worth looking at, not my cup of tea but might be yours.

Netbeans also good for linux and perhaps there are many more freeware IDEs for PHP. I suggest you have a look on this site:

Zend Studio 7.1
Zend Studio 7.1 is the next generation of professional-grade PHP IDE
