A Fantastic Resource From Smashing Magazine

Earlier this week, Smashing Magazine put together a fantastic resource for PHP developers. The post is a list of “50 Extremely Useful PHP Tools.” The categories covered in the post are:

  • Debugging Tools
  • Testing and Optimization Tools
  • Documentation Tools
  • Security Tools
  • Image Manipulation and Graphs
  • PHP Code Beautifier
  • Version-Control Systems (though, according to the comments, the tools listed in this section arguably do not belong there)
  • Useful Extensions, Utilities and Classes
  • PHP Online Tools and Resources
  • In-Browser Tools (Firefox Add-Ons)
  • Frameworks for PHP
  • PHP IDEs and Editors
  • Sources and Resources

The descriptions of some of the tools in the article could have been a little better, as I don’t even understand what some of the tools are designed to do. However, there are quite a few interesting items in the list. I will definitely be trying some of them over the next few months to see how they work and what they might be able to do for me.
