@peaky-crowd Totally cool that you inquired here but I would hazard a guess that you may have better luck on a phpBB support board, no?
Have fun! 🐕 🌻
@psychobunny I preferred the old version of github for windows. Was easier to find things. I use jetbrains php storm as it supports js etc and it also supports various plugins for my real world jerb, however I like trying new ones so may look at Sublime. Also use FF for testing, prefer Firebug over the dev console in FF though. And putty to connect to my server, naturally. Or FireFTP if I just want to throw a file somewhere from my computer.
Still trying to sort out which editor is my favorite in my environment. I use Sublime Text the most, but I love Bracket's easier extensibility and built-in folder browser. Haven't given Atom a spin yet but will very soon now that the Windows alpha is out.
I use AMPPS as my LAMP stack, pretty decent and it's from the guys who made Softaculous, so spinning up different forum scripts for fun and conversion experiments is easy.
And I still run NodeBB out of my downloads folder like a filthy casual.
