Emacs and PHP: There’s more than one way to do it, of course

| emacs

The PhpMode page on EmacsWiki lists five options for developing PHP in Emacs. I’m currently using the php-mode maintained by Aaron Hawley, and I’m quite happy with it. I’m curious about the php-mode maintained by Ahmet Usal, though, as it has extensive templating support and electric behavior. It seems to have abbreviations and argument lists for every PHP function, and I might borrow the code and convert it to a yasnippet file if I don’t end up using this. I’ll switch to Ahmet Usal’s php-mode today, see what it feels like, and post my notes. Has anyone else tried both?
