nWire for PHP was released about 6 months ago (read the original article) and it is already an indispensable tool for many professional PHP developers. nWire adds PHP code analysis and exploration capabilities to Eclipse PDT and Zend Studio.
The new release improves one major area: performance. The results are radical.
For example, a full Zend Framework based project takes less than 10 minutes to fully analyze on most machines. Once the analysis is complete, the unique nWire tools are ready to accelerate your coding:
- nWire Visualizer – graphically browse the system elements and visualize the associations between them. Filter the associations to produce different types of graphs. Exported images serve as a time saving enhancement for code reviews and developer documentation.
- nWire Navigator – a unique tool for browsing any type of association in the application code: type inheritance, file inclusion, method invocation and more. This view can be synchronized with the PHP code editor to provide instant context while reading the code.
- nWire Quick Search – search as you type for any element in the system, including methods and fields. Once a relevant component is found, a single click will reveal all its’ associated components.
Important Note: From the beginning of June, the base price for nWire will increase from $59 to $79. Until the end of May, you can still take advantage of the current price. Visit our download page to start a free, 30 day trial. Even if you tried nWire before, you are invited to try it again.
nWire for PHP is optimized for the new Zend Studio 7.x and Eclipse PDT 2.1 and it is developed with support from the Zend Studio team. nWire Software is an official Zend Studio Technology Partner.
