PHP an acronym for Hypertext Preprocessor is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most popular open-source scripting languages. It is not only easy to use, but it’s development tools offer speed and ease that transcends any other programming language.

Apart from these appealing benefits, for an amateur or a developer with little to no technical knowledge, hypertext preprocessor is the best place to start.
What makes PHP different from other languages is that it helps simplify and make the web application development process relatively easy. Yes, it’s being implemented for some of the most significant projects and has been in use for years, but it’s chiefly interesting because it is enhanced on a daily basis.

Another exciting aspect is that all this is being achieved without increasing memory consumption. Ideally, this will allow developers to hasten the development of web apps and custom websites with ease by taking advantage of full-stack and lightweight PHP frameworks.
Enough about how excellent PHP is, let us look at some of the PHP development tools that any developer shouldn’t lack.
