I'd like to ask a curious question...

How would I show a block of php code in a code editor such as Sublime 3 and show results as in console?(this would be for portfolio purposes as an example).

-Thank you

Sublime may have the ability to host a live server. Ie, show changes made in your code editor automatically inside of your browser. I use Atom code editor for this very purpose. I have Atom-live-server installed, which is an easy to find and install package inside of Atom. Save your .php file, and automatically any changes are reflected in the browser and therefore the browsers dev-tools console.

Best way to achieve what u want is to makesure php is installed on your developing machine, then pop up a new terminal window, navigate to your .php file and invoke: php <filename>.php

Altough there is a console feature in sublime-text I didn't get how it works... seems to be something to control things inside of sublime instead of running stuff, I may be wrong tho.
