XAMPP is great as a localhost webserver, and you'd include alternatives for Mac and Linux. Not everybody use Windows. In my case (Mac) I use SmartSVN for SVN, Coda as my code editor and Filezilla (already listed) as my FTP Client.

I was going to ask about recommendations for programs on the Mac, but that seems to have answered it pretty well.
"The Book of Arantor, 17:3-5
  And I said unto him, thy database query shalt always be sent by the messenger of $smcFunc
  And $smcFunc shall protect you against injections and evil
  And so it came to pass that mysql_query was declared deprecated and even though he says he is not dead yet, the time was soon to come to pass when mysql_query shall be gone and no more."

This is for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
It is an IDE for PHP and other stuff.

So is Komodo Edit (not a full fledged IDE but close imo), which I prefer.

Not really sure if this was discussed in here yet.  Not really an application, but still a very nice link that lets your browser know how it stacks up with HTML5.  Simply point that browser to this url:  http://html5test.com/

Cheers :)

Nice one, shame that it has to be in the form of a file to check for PHP Syntax Errors, and can't be in the form of a string instead, same thing with the built-in PHP function:  php_check_syntax() which has been deprecated!  Honestly, writing out a file, checking it's syntax, and than deleting it (cause we really don't need the file, but only the string) is a bit redundant.  However, this is useful knowledge in any case!  FWIW, I managed to duplicate the php_check_syntax() function that is compatible with all PHP versions, without using the commandline and without running the script itself.

As for using PHP to access the commandline for syntax error checking and more:  Here's a nice topic on that:  Accessing the Command Line from PHP if anyone's interested.

I use the following regularly at work.  These are some (free) very useful programs that compliment Xcode very well.  Can find them all on macupdate:

TextWrangler
Programmer-friendly text editor.  Syntnax highlighting for nearly everything, as well as advanced grep find & replace.

SequelPro
Database browser.  Usual things included.

DiffMerge
File comparison.

CyberDuck and File-Zilla
FTP/SFTP clients.

SvnX
SVN tool.

Screenshots
If you didn't already know:
cmd+shift+3 (whole-screen capture)
cmd+shift+4 (selection screen capture)
cmd+shift+4, then hit space bar (allows you to click on a window, menu, dock item, icon, etc. and capture selected item)

Here on Windows 7:

Text Editor: Komodo Edit
Web Server: WAMP
FTP client: FileZilla
ZIPper: WinRAR
Screenshots: Lightshot

And on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04):
Text Editor: gedit
Web Server: Custom LAMP stack
FTP client: FileZilla
ZIPper: Ubuntu stock
Screenshots: Dunno, built-in crap I guess.

I prefer the Ubuntu environment since I modified the PHP and Apache config to the way I like developing with it.

FWIW I do crude syntax checking by taking the string, sticking 'return true;' in front of it, then pushing it through eval() and seeing if I get true or false back.

FYI:  Not exactly the best way to check for PHP syntax errors, mainly because eval runs the PHP script/string.  It's not a syntax checking function, although it has been used as such in many ways.  The best approach you can do using eval would be to put the code in a dead code sandbox to prevent it's execution and use output buffering to catch the errors.

It runs the code? You don't say! Like I hadn't already accounted for that, as described, by putting return true in front of it. So that if it returns true, it's probably OK, and if returned false, it had a parse error... you know, crude like. It would be a shame if I hadn't already made that statement in the first 5 words of my post, though...

Also, here's another:  (X)HTML 5 Online Validator.  This is awesome for validating documents in HTML 5.  You can select between 3 different types of input:  Address, File Upload, or Text Field (where you just copy and paste in the HTML).

Nothing, just providing another link for HTML 5 validation.

O:)

https://github.com/emanuele45/tools/blob/master/patch_to_mod.php

Nothing special, or better something that should be greatly improved to be really useful...but maybe someone want to try it and improve it! :laugh:

At the moment it only supports things like: git diff > afile.patch


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D
