NuSphere PhpED - New Features

Nusphere PhpED 7.0

PhpED 7.0 is a major point release for NuSphere. It delivers on 3 major goals:
  • Provide PhpED user community with kick -ass PHP Refactoring functionality in IDE
  • Maintain our user's technological advantage by fully supporting PHP 5.4 in our PHP Editor
  • As always, make working with our PHP IDE fun by giving it faster search, new look and feel and Find Usage features

New in PhpED 7.0

PHP Refactoring in PHP IDE
Code Refactoring is an integral part of Agile development. With PhpED 7.0 you can refactor your code and "pay technical debt" in a matter of seconds. With new Refactor tool bar you can:
  • Extract any selected block of code into a method or function
  • Rename and identifier - variable, function, class or method and the system will update all usages of that identifier in the project
  • Display Side by side differences of the code before and after refactoring operation
  • See all occurrences of the identifier you want to rename or the code to extract to a function or method
Find Usage functionality
PhpED is used on the projects comprised of hundreds of PHP files. Changing a function or a class methods in these project is not an easy task. With Find Usage menu you can see all usages of selected function, method or class in your Project right in the PHP IDE window. Combine this with phpUnit in PhpED and you can tame any Project

Side by Side Diff viewer
Taking even further our support for remote development PHP IDE now has a difference viewer. Use it to see side by side difference between files copies in the editor and on local or even remote disks. Side by side difference is also available for before and after views in php refactoring
