Sublime Text for PHP

Sublime PHP

Matt Stauffer has a new post out with instructions for setting up Sublime Text for PHP developement. He sets the stage by showing all the features he feels is a “must have” that PhpStorm offers and then shows related packages to achieve the goal:

A lot of folks in the PHP community have been checking out PHPStorm lately, including myself and most of the developers I work with. We love the code intelligence we get from PHPStorm, but still miss the speed, quick boot-up, and convenience of Sublime Text.

Before I blindly assume PHPStorm is the only way to go, I wanted to see: Can I bring the things a PHP-focused IDE provides PHP developers back to Sublime Text and get the best of both worlds?

I personally keep switching back and forth depending on the project, but I’m so spoiled by shift+shift or search anywhere in PhpStorm that it drives me crazy you can’t duplicate that in Sublime. It’s like comparing boxers vs briefs. There is no “right one” for everyone.
