I truly love VIM – it’s one of only a handful of applications I’ve every come across that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. However, for PHP development, I still use PDT Eclipse although I would love to switch.
The reason I can’t quite at the moment is the CTRL+SPACE code-assist functionality that I rely on so much – it’s so useful, especially when type hinting, or using PHPDoc variable comment blocks.
I know there are cool plugins for VIM out there that can probably replicate this functionality and then some – but what are they?
Look at SuperTab for making tab-autocompletion in Vim a bit easier to use than the standard bindings. You may also want to look into ctags, if you’re into code indexing. Google “php vim ctags” and you’ll see plenty of articles describing how to set it up.
The official Vim Wiki has a PHP section with some good tips, like integrating the official PHP documentation.
I’m going to mark this ticket as solved. In case there’s anything else you’d like to know, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help!
