Introducing PhpStorm: The IDE that Gives PHP Developers an Innovative Helping Hand

Working with clients from diverse industries with a wide variety of needs, Aztek is always on the lookout for the most innovative and helpful software that can make their lives easier and optimize their production. In this regard, we are proud of our partnership with JetBrains, a global company that develops many cutting-edge software tools and IDEs such as WebStorm, ReSharper, PyCharm and more. We license many JetBrains software tools exclusively in Israel, and the feedback we’ve received from our clients is highly satisfactory.

In this blog article, we will highlight another IDE from JetBrains, which has already made headlines all over the world: PhpStorm. As an official JetBrains reseller, we believe that PhpStorm’s array of capabilities can truly simplify the tasks facing PHP developers, in the smartest and most intuitive way possible. 


So, what is PhpStorm?

PhpStorm is an integrated development environment (IDE) that is a dream come true for PHP developers. The reason is simple: With PhpStorm, PHP developers can simplify most of their tasks. PhpStorm saves developers precious time, cleans up their code, increases their efficiency and provides a slew of added benefits. 

PhpStorm may be designed for state-of-the-art PHP development support, but that’s not all it can do. In fact, PhpStorm supports many programming languages and platforms, including CSS, JavaScript, HTML5 and more. PHP developers can use this advanced IDE as they work on platforms and frameworks such as WordPress, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, Laravel and others. 

So how does PhpStorm simplify PHP development? Let's explore:

  • Code inspections: Writing neat code is easy with PhpStorm, thanks to a slew of inspections, support tools and analysis features, which can be deployed on the fly.
  • Code navigation: The ultimate time saving feature, which helps developers move around in their codebase with ease and efficiency.
  • Code refactoring: PhpStorm helps developers refactor their code in a reliable and safe manner. With PhpStorm, changes are no longer daunting, because they can be executed quickly and safely. If required, refactorings can also be overturned.
  • Debugging and testing: PhpStorm comes with a built-in visual debugger that allows developers to locate and fix code errors with maximum ease. The visual debugger is complemented by powerful testing features.
  • Releases and updates: Every year, PhpStorm has three releases that include new features improvements. For example, PhpStorm 2023.2 includes innovative GitLab integration, built-in support for Laravel Pint, AI Assistant , and more.

We’ve tried to summarize the benefits of PhpStorm to the best of our abilities.
