I’ve been a fan of PHPStorm for several years. Before PHPStorm, I tried many IDEs and editors, including some very popular names like NetBeans, Eclipse or Sublime Text 3 but I chose with PHPStorm for the number of features and support for WordPress. It gets better and better over time. If you’re a Sublime Text user, you might argue that Sublime Text is more lightweight and more productive because of its keyboard shortcuts. I can agree with the “lightweight” term, but not the other. PHPStorm has a very nice list of productive keyboard shortcuts as you can see below.
