Entorno de desarrollo web con Eclipse

Ultimamente estoy mirando de encontrar el mejor entorno de desarollo multiplataforma que me vaya bien para llevar los proyectos de webs. Finalmente el que me ha convencido ha sido Eclipse con los plugins para PHP/HTML/CSS/Javascript y SVN:

  • Aptana: HTML/CSS/Javascript. Update Site: http://update.aptana.com/update/
  • PHPEclipse: PHP. Update Site: http://phpeclipse.sourceforge.net/update/releases/
  • Subclipse: SVN. Update Site: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.0.x

Lo unico que hace falta para instalarse todos los plugins, es bajarse el ultimo Eclipse e ir a “Help->Software Updates->Find and install…” y añadir los “Update Site” de cada uno bajo “Search for new features to install”.
