Codelobster is a portable integrated development environment (IDE) primarily for PHP, which also supports HTML, CSS, and JavaScript development.[1] Plug-ins are available for Drupal, WordPress, Smarty, Joomla, JQuery, Facebook, Codeigniter, Yii, and CakePHP.[2] Free registration by email is required after 30 days of use of the program,[3] and there are paid versions also ("Lite" and "Professional") for additional features.[4] The program is missing a help system as of its latest version.[5]

The program features syntax highlighting and auto-completion for SQL, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and XML, as well as automatic syntax checking.[1] There is a HTML and CSS inspector like Firebug.[6] It also includes Drupal support. All plugins are paid, but they offer trial periods of varying length.[5]
