NuSphere PhpED - New Features

Nusphere PhpED 6.1

PhpED 6.1 comes only a couple months after the release of PhpED 6.0. New Features in 6.1 version of the IDE build on top of JavaScript enhancements made in previous versions making the programming of JavaScript as easy as programming with PHP.

New in PhpED 6.1

JavaScript Code completion for HTML DOM objects
Used in every serious JavaScript programm the properties of DOM objects are now at your fingertips, compliant with the standards.

Auto Highlight variable for JavaScript
As it is the case for PHP and HTML, Auto Highlight variable marks occurrences of a JavaScript variable in the Editor

Full support for JsDoc in IDE
The IDE also provides full support for JsDoc, letting you add descriptions for functions, variables, classes, methods, and properties. Also JsDoc in PhpED supports type hints with the information about the correct type of variables, properties, and values returned from methods or functions. In this regard this feature works similar to PhpDoc type hints in php files.
