I need a HTML IDE, which builds a full project (take Coffeecup Editor as an example) but for free.

I also need an auto-complete feature, and support for JavaScript and PHP.

My favorite editor is Visual Studio Code

It can work with JavaScript, PHP and many other languages. It is built using web technologies on top of GitHub's Electron and thus works on Mac, Windows and Linux.

It is free and open-source (MIT License)

  • It looks like it has auto-complete for JavaScript, but does it also have it for PHP? – Chillie Dec 29 '16 at 17:52

    Yes, it has PHP syntax highlighting and bracket matching, IntelliSense (code completion), and snippets out of the box and you can add more functionality through community created VS Code extensions. – timfredo Dec 29 '16 at 18:39

One of my favorite tools is NetBeans. It can work with Java, JavaScript, HTML5, PHP, C/C++, Groovy, etc. It has code complete for JavaScript and PHP. It's written in Java, so it works on Mac, Windows and Linux and it's completely free!

I use Brackets. It has autocomplete for some languages and you can add functionality with plugins. You can get it for free on brackets.io and its opensource. Before I switched to the Jetbrains tools, I used Brackets a lot. It has an active community, syntax highlighting and the posibillity to be extended eith plugins, like I already said.

  • Where to find it? Is it available for free? Have you used it, and thus can recommend it – or just heard about it? Please edit your answer and fill those gaps. Thanks! – Izzy Dec 30 '16 at 20:54
