In the current software industry, there are a number of software applications, such as IDE (Integrated Development Environment) available which offers extensive facilities for excellent software development. The developers use IDE to maximise their productivity and create a powerful software based on various platforms.
1. Increased PHP Support
The latest version Zend Studio 13 has combined with PHP 7 has expanded new opportunities for the developers. With PHP 7, the developers can easily work on the latest scripting concepts, such as Return Type Declarations, Group Use Declarations, Anonymous Classes, and Spaceship Operator. Moreover, Zend has introduced PHP 7 Express, a built-in migration tool that enables an easy transition to PHP 7. Through this tool, the developers can easily scan all existing projects for compatibility issues and can focus them to the exact code with issues, as well as provide solutions to resolve the issues.
2. Debugging Made Easy
The Zend Studio 13 has made debugging easy for the developers, as the tool automatically searches for the installed debuggers in the servers. This excellent feature is compatible with both servers, i.e., local and remote. Through this tool, the developers can easily configure the client’s IP, and once the IP configured, the debugging process will start automatically.
3. Eclipse Plugin
Additionally, the Zend Studio 13 is powered by Eclipse 4.5.1. This provides a developer with a support plugin for Eclipse, which makes them enjoy the advantage of Eclipse framework within their development environment.
4. Support for Docker & GIT Flow
The Zend Studio 13 offers to support the platform update for Docker images and tools. This update creates a favorable environment for maximum deployment experience within containers. Moreover, the developers can freely run, debug and test their PHP applications. In addition, it provides complete support for the Git Flow branching model, which is used in parallel to development by the PHP experts, to keep the new work confined.
