"It's DSV for PHP without the BS."

January 09, 2012  |  By RR1K

 |  Version: DSV PHP Editor 3.2.1

Pros

DSV PHP Editor has a great deal going on with marginal code completion, a quick connect feature for database and a lite embedded testing server with PHP pre-configured. It gets you rolling in no time flat and has enough functionality to keep your interest well past novelty.

Cons

The editing space can be a little annoying as it manages insertion using the old school column and row fixed width; simply, anywhere you click in the text editor is where your insertion point/editing cursor appears. The editor should also have a numb-skull editing mode like notepad in addition to the old school editor. Switch between editing modes would help out when commenting as opposed to rapid app dev.

Summary

DSV PHP Editor is one of the most feature rich and competent PHP editors/mini IDEs that I have had the pleasure of using. It's focus on PHP for the web developer is clearly evident, but it is designed in a way that anyone novice to the scripting grammar (PHP) will get caught up to speed pretty quickly. It's ready to go out of the box and the no muss setup means a great deal to new-bees programmers.

This tool with your favorite development server setup will have you web mastering in no time. Can't say enough good things about DSV -- it has always run for me on Vista 32 bit and Windows 7 64 bit -- it is definitely worth the download.

- Quick summary:
- SQL Connection manager
- Snippets library manager
- XHTML editing features
- CSS editing features
- embedded testing server (no setup, installs with the editor)
- PHP installs with the editor and can be upgraded without hassle.
- pretty configurable

I have Dreamweaver, Expression Web and a JavaScript Editor/PHP IDE and I still do my PHP with DSV; it's troublesome enough to do HTML in the other editors let alone discuss PHP support without headaches and overly complex site setup requirements for testing.

It's DSV for PHP without the BS.

"Excelent software!"

 |  Version: DSV PHP Editor 3.2.1

Pros

It works good, and I like the easy access to MySQL database and visual Query builder as well.

Cons

I miss a visual builder, so I could preview the layout of the project.

Summary

It is better than a bunch of commercial tools.

"IT FREEZES COMPUTERS, AGAIN!!! >.<"

November 03, 2010  |  By Lucien_Sabre

 |  Version: DSV PHP Editor 3.2.1

Pros

If I could have actually been able to use it...u.u

Cons

Within 15 minutes from installation, it freezes...and freezes the screen, too. v.v

Summary

I installed it but, after like 15 minutes, the program and everything else on my screen was freezed; I waited to see if that was temporary, but the problem lasted for at least other 15 minutes. o.o
To make everything work again, I had to end the process by force with Windows Task Manager; after that exploit, I immediately uninstalled the program.
No way I'm keeping a program who freezes my notebook screen!!

"At first glance a solid looking editor"

November 03, 2010  |  By dexteriot

 |  Version: DSV PHP Editor 3.2.1

Pros

i needed a php editor with autocomplete and distinct syntax highlighting. ive been using codelobster which i really like but sometimes it slows down for no reason, drives me mad. tried ALMOST ALL other free editors and this one is the best.

Cons

just started using it so none so far, will update if i bump into
