I am looking for a PHP/JS/HTML/CSS editor which has autocomplete function (like IntelliJ IDEA & Eclipse).

It would be also great if it supports themes :)

Dreamweaver is too heavy for me with a lots of unuseful stuff. Something light like Notepad++ and with the autocomplete extra would be just perfect.

I'm partial to NuSphere's PHPED. I was looking for an IDE with a PHP debugger and found PHPEd. In the process, I found it also supported what you're looking for. It's feature list is impressive given it's relatively low cost. I had also looked at using Eclipse with a PHP plugin, but, decided against that because the debugger was "kluggy" to use. I settled on PHPEd because it provided most, if not all, of the features you would expect from a major IDE with some unexpected features as well. For example, it also provides code profiling and unit tests.

  • Could you add a link and some personal experience with this tool? What makes it great? Imagine giving a personal recommendation to someone face to face. You certainly would tell the person more about the tool. Oct 16, 2014 at 9:41

SynWrite editor is little similar to N++ but has more features. It has autocomplete for:

  • HTML, CSS: built-in
  • PHP: needed plugin SynCodeIntel (install using "Plugin Manager" item in "Tools" menu)
  • JS: not tested, but maybe SynCodeIntel supports JS too
  • Python: needed plugin SynJedi (install in "Plugin Manager")

PHP completion:

PHP list

It supports theming via skins and color customizing.
