In August 2006, Eran Ifrah started an autocomplete project named CodeLite. The idea was to create a code completion library based on ctags, SQLite (hence, CodeLite), and a Yacc based parser that could be used by other IDEs. Later Clang became an optional parser for code completion, greatly improving its functionality.
LiteEditor, a demo application, was developed for demonstrating CodeLite's functionalities. Eventually, LiteEditor evolved into CodeLite.
CodeLite features project management (workspace / projects), code completion, code refactoring, source browsing, syntax highlight (see CodeLite Features page), Subversion integration, cscope integration, UnitTest++ integration, an interactive debugger built over gdb and a source code editor (based on Scintilla).
CodeLite is distributed under the GNU General Public License v2 or Later. It is being developed and debugged using itself as the development platform with daily updates available through its Git repository. See CodeLite website and the how-to compile "CodeLite from Source" section on the CodeLite source code page.
As of version 7.0 of CodeLite (Released on Feb, 2015) PHP support was added.
