The best symfony IDE for Mac: Probably still Zend Studio

So in a recent symfony-zone article about “the best Symfony IDE: PHPEdit“, the author recommended using PHPEdit.   Problem is PHPEdit doesn’t have a Mac OS X version according to their requirements page as of this date.

Zend_Acl – Resource / Role / Privilege Viewer?

Today at work I made a Zend_Acl – Resource / Role / Privilege Viewer that I wish I could share, but can’t.  Pretty straight forward, globs the resources by their file names and instantiates all the roles on another glob.  Overrode the allow/deny in Zend_Acl to save the privileges and then use that to display a table of all the isAllowed calls for a specific resource for all the roles for their privileges.

Was looking around to see if there are any open-sourced projects and didn’t find any.
