I'm evaluating PhpStorm 8.0.2 for a large team deployment; I'm ~ a week into it ...
In many ways, it's the best IDE (for PHP) I've seen so far; trying hard to 'like' it.
For local-only use, on my desktop, it's clean, simple and functional.
But, for 'real-world' large & multi-client projects, there are some serious deal-breakers that get in the way; current examples include:
No flexible project management
Project management feature: Usable "known projects list" for reopening them in any supported way
No connection to HTTPS remote sites
WI-3033 Support HTTPS connection to server
NewProject create fails @ "HEAD method failed for "https://test.MYDOMAIN.com/" with HTTP status 403."
No support for advanced/modern SSL ciphers/algos
PhpStorm 7.1.3 and 8.x.x - Deployment feature (SFTP) - Algorithm negotiation fail
Poor font/look-n-feel on Linux
IDEA-57233 Editor font antialising/appearance problems on Linux
We currently use Eclipse. It's fully functional -- none of those ^^^ issues are a problem. But it's fat & clunky, and the UI/workflow has a steep learning curve.
We're looking also at Netbeans & Komodo.
What are 'your' experiences with large-team / multi-site deployment of PhpStorm?
Are these ^^^ issues/limitations present in the 'full' IDEA IDE?
I'd appreciate comments, opinions, insights.
