I’m old fashion student who use phpcoder as tool for coding php until my friend suggest aptana editor with php support. When everything configured properly I’ll have php interpreter for immediate debug purpose and I think it’s suitable for new php user 🙂
I decide to give this software a try and here it goes.
Aptana studio available from their website, I use free version. (1.5)
After download it I run installer to get installation work.
Welcome to Aptana Studio 1.5 setup, click Next to start.
License agreement, push I agree button.
Choose Install Location
Aptana will choose destination folder automatically, by default it will install on :
C:\Program Files\Aptana\Aptana Studio 1.5
Click Browse button to change or click Next to continue with selected folder.
Select Start Menu Folder
ClickÂ Next to continue.
Select default file type associated with aptana studio
click Next to continue.
Click Install button.
Installer will extract and start install to selected folder.
Setup has successfully installed Aptana Studio 1.5 on your computer.
Click Close button.
Add php support to Aptana Studio
Install Additional Features
New window will display for plugin.
There are 5 plugin categories :
- Web application platforms
- Ajax Libraries
Click + sign to see sub plugin that Aptana studio support.
I choose :
- Aptana PHP
- JQuery Support
Click Install button and new window will display ‘progress Information’ as shown on the picture.
All programs from selected will downloaded from Aptana studio, click ‘Always run in background’ and wait till finish.
I’ll post PHP section in other post.
