Install a free PHP system function lookup for Xcode Apps
Objective Development have created a freeware extension bundle for Apple's XCode which adds functionality for making PHP development more comfortable. Currently implemented are a PHP system function lookup (including parameter hints) and a shortcut for looking up the PHP online help for a given function.

[robg adds: This plug-in worked fine when I tested it on Xcode 2.1, and could be a timesaver if you do PHP development in Xcode.]

Install a free PHP system function lookup for Xcode
Authored by: gaoshan on Aug 05, '05 06:02:22PM

Just FYI...

I'd like to point out that this sort of capability also exists within BBedit, Eclipse and probably in other text editors (TextMate, jEdit, Smultron, TextWrangler?). Regardless, you can use PHP Function Index as a convenient way to look up functions outside of any program and even offline.

Becaused of its lack of a PHP debugger I personally don't see any reason to use Xcode over any other editor available. Certainly not over a real IDE like Eclipse.

LOL.... good point. However, as a vim user I am required to remind you that emacs is second in excellence to vi. ;)

For those of you seeking information above and beyond the aimless commentary of those driven by shallow emotion, Xcode is definitely a "real" IDE and makes a finely tuned, robust addition to any developers tool set.

PHP widgets

There are also a number of PHP reference widgets out there, including my PHP Function Reference, which includes a function lookup, some cheat sheets, and an interactive date format string tool.
