Today, I decided that I wanted a PHP development environment. I went to the “Eclipse on Demand” site. Here’s what it looks like:
The browser looks a lot like Eclipse itself (it’s amazing what you can do with AJAX). I entered “php” in the filter text which exposed two different PHP options (1). For no particular reason, I chose PHPeclipse (2). Yoxos automatically figured out the other parts I needed to make PHPeclipse work (3). Finally, I hit the “Download now” button (4). At this point, it assembled all the components together into a single download and provided me with a link to a single “ZIP” file which I downloaded, decompressed, and ran.
As expected, it works like a charm.
