Git extensions- Free GUI for git. Personally, more complete and closer to git's methodology than smartgit. Basically, it tells you everything and gives you a GUI for almost any function of git without doing anything on its own.

Geany works trough Fink so that isn't a real Mac editor.
There are free Mc apps like Komodo Edit, TextWrangler but I'll stick with SubEthaEdit.

I am using Visual Studio and the Extension "PHP Tools for Visual Studio", wich is somewhat really cool.
It is not free though. You can get Visual Studio if you are student for free, otherwise there is a new free version. Haven't tried it out yet.
And you also have to pay for the extension after a test period, but for me it is really worth it.

I really like the direct integration in the best IDE I've ever used. Maybe that's cause I use it at work, but since I use this, I've improved many of my development processes very drastically.
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Handy Linux command line tools:

A possibility to cleanup a repository. (with git-stripspace)

Code: Select all

git ls-files | while read file ; do
    git stripspace < "$file" | sponge "$file"
done
All empty spaces at the end of lines are removed and double empty lines as well.
git-stripspace does the cleaning, git-ls-files safely selects all the files from the repository (and leaves the .git directory alone). sponge from moreutils makes it possible to use a file as input and output at the same time.

A possibility to replace text in a repository. (with sed)

Code: Select all

git ls-files | xargs sed -i -e 's/search-text/replace-text/g'
Edit: I didn't take into account non-text files, like images, for this commands; so be careful.

My IDE of choice: NetBeans - Works great with BB and is awesome for project management and debugging...once you get it set up. Don't know how I ever lived without it.

MySQL manager: HeidiSQL - An open-source, super versatile sql editor. It's just so snappy and fast. It makes sql so easy and intuitive.

Now I wait for them to pay me...

Aptana Studio is really good. I used to use Geany, but now I wouldn't give up Aptana for anything... probably... well, ok, maybe for a robotic monkey that can cook, and accompany me on my quests to that dangerous place called 'outdoors'.

Aptana is a fork of Eclipse, trimmed down and polished up, focusing on web technologies almost exclusively. The built-in goodies like the SFTP using key auth is nice, as is the configurable syntax highlighting / coloring. My only complaint is that I haven't found a solution to adapt the syntax highlighting & code assist to play nicely with PHPBB. One would think that defining a few custom rules for syntax would be easy-peasy. Wrong. :roll:
