I use Notepad++ run on my windows desktop, and then have winscp watching the a directory uploading whatever to a CentOS VM as I edit.

I've never found the tooling in IDEs for PHP to actually be any good, so I don't bother.

I use phpstorm, one of the features that I like that I haven't been able to find anywhere is that there no need to save your work, it does it in real time :)

Yes, although you'll have to set the option. Or enable the plug-in. Or whatever your editor needs.

Being a sysadmin for so long I've actually not liked a Linux environment for development personally. I love Mac OS X with PhpStorm and a Vagrant installation on the latest Debian (very quick deployment and it's an accessible Linux installation). For Laravel development, what you're doing, you could just use their provided homestead environment for Vagrant which is excellent.

Most important part: My customized bleeding edge fish shell, it's just so much better than bash (or any other shell I tried). Second most important part: Customized bleeding edge git.

Other than that I develop on Ubuntu Vivid using Docker. I switch regularly between Atom and vim as my editors, depending on the task. Font of choice is Ubuntu Mono.

Have you tried zsh TimWolla? I've never tried Fish, but I've used zsh for years now and found it to be perfect for my needs. I'd be interested to know how Fish compares.

Hi
Have you tried zsh?
No, but from what I've read zsh is inferior in that is misses the features that make fish so great (recordings done using https://github.com/icholy/ttygif):

Explanation for the for loop: Automated indenting for control structures!

Explanation for the completions: You can navigate using the arrow keys. example2.gif
And other than those mentioned in the GIFs:
  • Syntax highlighting

That does look very cool. Zsh has the same feature when you double tab to complete. A single tab makes the best guess for completion though

One of my favourite features of my shell is the simple Git status, showing the current branch and any uncommitted changes:

Syntax highlighting would be pretty nice I guess, but I'd have to convert all my dot files too...

That arrow navigation is for ambiguous completions only. It completes as far as the completion is clear.

I got another one for you: You can start typing when that arrow-navigable list appears to perform a fuzzy match:

My fish got that too (my bash did as well for that matter). I could not live without that :) Though I do only show the current branch. Running git status to check whether my working tree is dirty would grind my prompt to a halt on a few repositories (1G+) on my disk.

Interestingly it looks like fish ships with a port of the prompt you currently use (Robbyrussel, last but one):

Edit: I think I should explain the screenshot above. That's fish_config. It launches a small Python Webserver that allows to configure your fish from within your browser.

TimWolla - That was just a basic Symfony installation with the demo app loaded as a project to show off the IDE. Currently I am working with PHP 5.6.

I forgot to mention, I use SourceTree to keep track of my Git repos.

Pretty impressive feature set :) I might have to give it a spin and see if I can get converted across.

Ah yeah, I might as well mention that I use Tower for git management too, as well as the CMD and the Git management features built into PHPStorm.

I use Visual Studio, C#, ASP.NET, SQL Server for my online community which I have open sourced. I would like to re-write it to ASP.NET Core so it could run on Linux and not just Windows but there's no pressing need for it at the moment.
