#1) does the yiic tool work on windows with tools packages like XAMPP e.t.c.
#2) what is the best editor to use when developing Yii applications
(obviously this is based on preference, but I'm sure some are
way better than others. Also I'm coming from a VS2008 background so
I'm a little spoilt because I use code refactoring tools with it and it is a
very good IDE for developing windows appplications)
I'm using Windows (WampServer) platform (not in production) and yiic works fine for me.
Regarding you question on the best IDE, this is a long discussion (as always) and you may find usefule to take a look to this thread : http://www.yiiframew…opic,483.0.html
I use Eclpise + Aptana (as a plugin) and code completion + contextual help are enough for me. As for refactoring … I don't think Eclipse + php plugin provides it…
Haven't used the feature myself, but Eclipse + PDT supposedly features some basic refactoring (files, classes).
how do I setup the yiic tool to run on vista with XAMMP?
I get below error (view image) when I try to run it…
It there any reason why the yiic tool is escaping every quote in the the code it creates (view attached image)
Nope, Yii doesn't do that. I guess your PHP installation has enabled some filtering mechanism that would automatically escape quotes.
Thanks! I cannot wait to delve deep into Yii…
