How to Build PHP 5.4 Applications with Visual Studio
Jun 29, 2012 @ 08:26:08

On Dzone.com today there's a new post showing you how to build PHP applications with Visual Studio based on PHP project templates.

Developing web applications with PHP is cool, especially when you have the right development tools and even with more features added in PHP 5.4. But each time I left the comfort of Intellisense in Visual Studio to develop PHP applications using Zend or Netbeans for PHP, I was not always satisfied with those IDEs' code complete features. Thus, I decided to search for any available plugin that will provide this feature in Visual Studio.

The plugin used is on from Jcx.Software Corp. It adds in the PHP templates and Intellisense support for PHP code completion. He also shows how to set up an IIS server to work with it to make it easier to test your application.
