PhpStorm is an innovative, Java-based integrated development environment (IDE) engineered by JetBrains for PHP and web developers. It supports PHP 5.3/5.4/5.5/5.6/7.0/7.1/7.2, provides on-the-fly error prevention, best auto-completion and code refactoring, zero-configuration debugging, and an extended HTML, CSS and JavaScript editor. The IDE provides smart code completion, syntax highlighting, extended code formatting configuration, on-the-fly error checking, code folding, supports language mixtures and more. Automated refactoring treats your code with care, helping to make global project settings easy and safe.

Zero-configuration debugging makes it effortless to debug your PHP applications. Besides, PhpStorm provides numerous options for debugging your PHP code with Visual Debugger, so you can: inspect variables and user-defined watches, set breakpoints, evaluate an expression in runtime, debug remote applications, debug a page in multiple sessions simultaneously and more.

It brings an impressive set of features to your fingertips and allows you to add plenty of plugins to expand its features for increased productivity and convenience. PhpStorm is perfect for working with Symfony, Drupal, WordPress, Zend Framework, Laravel, Magento, Joomla, CakePHP, Yii, and other frameworks. PhpStorm utilizes ground-breaking front-end technologies and avails robust refactoring, unit testing, and debugging tools.

Make the most of the cutting edge front-end technologies, such as HTML5, CSS, Sass, Less, Stylus, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, Emmet, and JavaScript, with refactoring, debugging, and unit testing being made possible. See the changes instantly in the browser thanks to Live Edit. All the features in WebStorm are included into PhpStorm, with full-fledged support for PHP and Databases/SQL support added on top.

It provides tools and code assistance features for working with databases and SQL in your projects. Connect to databases, edit schemas and table data, run queries, and even analyze schemas with UML diagrams. SQL code can be injected to other languages or edited in SQL Editor, with syntax highlighting, smart code completion, on-the-fly code analysis, code formatting and navigation available.

PhpStorm provides a unified UI for working with many popular Version Control Systems, ensuring a consistent user experience across git, GitHub, SVN, Mercurial, and Perforce.
