When you build a web site, even using the CMS, sooner or later you will need to edit the source code of pages – to give the site an individual look and functionality. Every webmaster should understand HTML, CSS, and preferably, PHP code. But knowing and understanding the code is only one part of the good skill.

The other part is to be able to choose and get used to a proper and convenient tool for working with code. Choice is huge – from simple virtual notebooks to multifunctional IDEs (Integrated Development Environment). CodeLobster PHP Edition belongs to the latter class of programs. It is easy to use, has intuitive interface and, what is most important, provides a wide range of supporting features facilitating work with the code.
