Use the tools you love
Whether you're an experienced PHP developer or just getting started, with Zend Studio you can fully explore the benefits of popular tools in the PHP ecosystem:
Composer - Dependency management made easy
Looking to use your favorite features from different PHP frameworks in one project but worried about the complexity of managing dependencies? By integrating Composer, Zend Studio lets you easily add, remove, update and browse project dependencies as well as effortlessly manage repositories. You can declare your dependencies within a configuration file, and then run a single command to immediately pull them into your project.
PHPUnit - Build reliable and bug free PHP projects
The sooner you detect your code mistakes, the quicker you can fix them. Zend Studio has seamless integration with the PHPUnit library, making tests easy to learn, write, read and execute. Don't write test infrastructure from scratch - just write the unique parts and reuse the plumbing.
PHPDocumentor 2 - Create comprehensive code documentation effortlessly
If you've ever tried to read code written by someone else - or even your own old code - you know how difficult it can be to understand its logic. Don't be "that guy": document your code! With PHPDocumentor integrated, Zend Studio makes it easier to generate user-friendly documentation from start to end. Easily document code blocks using DocBlocks and also define, select and switch between different configuration profiles.
Build apps using your favorite framework
Whichever framework you choose, Zend Studio will enhance your productivity: from fetching dependencies, learning new APIs, coding and unit testing to documentation and deployment.
Zend Framework users can benefit from extra features like automated creation of modules, view helpers and controllers and enhanced content assist for services and variables
Develop in the Cloud
Zend Studio allows you to seamlessly deploy code in the cloud using a Zend Server runtime environment designed for developers. Why do that? You'll get a certified and tested PHP stack, app monitoring and advanced debugging, performance tuning, and more.
Zend Developer Cloud: this free cloud-based PHP stack based on Zend Server is ideal for team collaboration and is agnostic about the production environment.
You can also deploy similarly onto any on-premise using Zend Server.
Create web-based mobile applications with ease
Zend Studio is also equipped with a visual drag-and-drop editor for quick UI prototyping.
