    Being a switcher I am unsure how to debug PHP on Leopard. In Windows I used Eclipse PDT with the ZendDebugger.

    What is the best development environment and debugger to use on Leopard so I can do this?

    I like the look of Panic's Coda but not sure if you can debug with this.

    Stick with what you know, use Eclipse PDT with the ZendDebugger ;)

    Coda is awesome but it won't actually Debug anything -- its just an editor.

    Is Eclipse the only editor/environment in which you can debug PHP on the Mac? With all the nice looking software to develop web applications I would have thought there were nicer ones than Eclipse?

    Zend Studio and Komodo also debug PHP. They're all multiplatform, like eclipse, so if you get used to any of those, you can transfer your across multiple OS easily.

    However, IMO, the best all-in-one package with debugger, is PHPED, which I use through fusion (no mac version).
