    Eclipse vs PhpStorm opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Eclipse is a great alternative to PhpStorm.

    Eclipse (plus xDebug & xampp) works well and is completely free. Eclipse itself is easy to install but tracking down the correct php items to install and configure for php and xdebug is at least time consuming if not difficult.
