I think that Light Table looks pretty neat but not everyone agrees. Going through the comments most people seem to be excited about Light Table and disagree with the post. I haven’t used Eclipse so I can’t really speak to the truth of the post but at the least it’s always worth taking a step back and looking at a contrary opinion.

Honestly, that article reads more like someone taking offense at a kid poking fun at his favorite toy. I’ve used Eclipse. I’ve used PHPStorm. I’ve used Notepad. There is a use for every tool and a tool for every use case.
Personally, I see things in Light Table that I like and things that I don’t. But I also see where it fits in the landscape of all the other tools I use. Will it replace PHPStorm? Not for me. But I’ll happily use it all the same.
