nwire for php is an eclipse plugin which accelerates php development by helping developers navigate through their code and better understand the architecture of their application. nwire was designed for developers who get lost in large and complex applications. it dramatically shortens the time it takes to read and understand the code and reduces the learning curve for new developers ( watch a 4 minute demo ).
since its' release, about 6 months ago, it has become an indispensable tool for many professional php developers. 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.
