CodeLobster: PHP Editor & Portable IDE

CodeLobster is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for PHP distributed for Windows OS that allows you to easily create web projects with almost any framework or CMS such as ZEND, CakePHP, WordPress, CodeIgniter, Joomla, Symfony, Yii, Drupal and, of course, Laravel as due to the plugin integration it counts with. Additionally, it is possible to rapidly develop projects based on AngularJS, handle databases with SQL Manager, and manipulate templates with Twig.


Moreover, CodeLobster includes several themes or color schemes that can be customized while installing it, and later modified inside the application featuring ones like Monokai, which is very comfortable and you’d know what I mean if you often use a code editor like Sublime Text.


  • Counts on syntax highlighting for common languages like HTML, JS, XML, PHP, Python, Ruby, PERL, SQL, and CSS
