Web development tools comparison

For any web developer having efficient web development tools and debugging tools makes a lot of difference on how quickly the development can progress. If you are a new developer and are looking for various tools that are freely available and are quite efficient then take a look at the list below. This list provides top recommendations from a huge list of tools available today.

Comparison and list of best and free web development tools and Integrated development Environments (IDE) – The Top 3

Based on user comments over the internet and personal use the following 3 web development tools are the best out there. They are being used professionally due to their ease and extensibility. If you are a novice or a pro these IDEs provide for most of your needs.

Eclipse IDE for web development

Eclipse Web development tools and PHP Develpoment Tools

Eclipse is an excellent tool or IDE for any kind of development. With it’s plug-gable architectureEclipse can support many different languages and tools for editing and debugging. There are both commercial as well as open source / freeware plugins available for Eclipse.

Eclipse provides a Web Tools Platform (WTP) that extends the Eclipse platform with tools for developing Web and Java EE applications. The primary focus for WDT here is Java. For PHP developers however eclipse supports PHP development tools (PDT) which can provide a host of functionality for coding and debugging PHP code.

Eclipse can sometime bog down novice developers since it requires installing and trying out different plugins based on the use. Some plugins may not be as user friendly as others. None the less this is the most used tools for web development.

NetBeans IDE for web development

Netbeans web development tools and IDE

Netbeans IDE is and open-source and free tool than can be used for JAVA, PHP development. Compared to eclipse the NetBeans has a very small learning curve and start up time is very low. It requires minimal configuration allowing users to get to coding tasks quickly.

Aptana studio IDE for web development

Aptana Studio web development tools and IDE

Aptana studio is an open-source development tool which has flexibility and plug-gable architecture  similar to eclipse. This IDE provides very nice interfaces and great integration with integrated debuggers. This might have the least amount of learning curve as screens and options are quite intuitive. It has been built from ground up especially for the web development. This is the platform that novice developers should first try before starting with eclipse.

Other Free web development tools and IDE

Quanta plus web development tool and IDE for KDE

Quanta plus web development tools and IDE

From initial research it looks like Quanta plus may not be the best option today. There has not been any new release since a long time for Quanta plus. It is mainly used for for HTML, XHTML, CSS, XML and any other XML-based languages or scripting languages. PHP is also supported.

Web development tools and debuggers from Firefox – The Top 4

If you are looking for quick debugging without the hassle of installation of tools on your computer, Firefox provides a host of options. These not only help to debug your code but also help in understanding code of other websites and how they are implemented.

In built web developer tools from Firefox

Firefox has started to provide built in web developer tools. These are really great tools for web development that are part of every new release of Firefox. Since they are part of Firefox core they provide excellent compatibility and future support. The following video provides an overview of Firefox web developer tools.

Firebug add on for Firefox

Firebug tools for CSS HTML debugging

Firebug is a must have Firefox add on for any web developer. It allows very easy debugging of HTML and CSS. The best feature is inspection of  HTML and modifying it to see output in real-time. It also integrates with Page Speed from Google which can help determine what is slowing down your web pages.

Web developer add on for Firefox

Web developer toolbar for firefox

Web developer is another excellent add on for web developers. It provides easy debugging via integration of various debugger tools. It creates a toolbar on your Firefox with various options such as CSS, Images, View Source, Validate – DOM, HTML etc. The options might be little over whelming as compared to Firebug. It may take some time to get used to it.

Live HTTP Header add on for Firefox

Live Http Headers

Live HTTP headers is a great tool to view HTTP headers of a page and while browsing. This helps in identifying your web page behavior under various conditions such as 301 redirects, page not found etc. This tool is a must to understand the exchange of information between web pages and the browser. A great tool for developers and SEOs alike.

Ninite: Ο καλυτερος βοηθος για καθε νεο υπολογιστη

Πρόσφατα έκανα format τον υπολογιστή μου και εκτός από τις χιλιάδες ενημερώσεις των windows έπρεπε να εγκαταστήσω από την αρχή όλα τα προγράμματα μου. Κάπου εδώ έρχεται το ninite.com το οποίο μπορεί να αναλάβει όλα όσα πρέπει να κάνετε και να σας γλιτώσει από πολλές ώρες αναμονής.

Ο τρόπος χρήσης του site είναι πολύ απλός, ο χρήστης επιλέγει όσες εφαρμογές θέλει να εγκαταστήσει πατάει το κουμπί «Get Installer» αποθηκεύει και τρέχει το αρχείο και μετά απλά περιμένει, δεν χρειάζεται ούτε να πατάτε συνέχεια επόμενο, επόμενο, επόμενο  ούτε να αποδέχεται όλους τους όρους χρήσης των προγραμμάτων. Το πρόγραμμα κατεβάζει τις εφαρμογές και ταυτόχρονα τις γράφει, μια – μια όπως είναι και το σωστό, στον υπολογιστή παραλείποντας όμως όσες εφαρμογές έχουν ήδη εγκαταστημένη την τελευταία έκδοση.  Το Ninite υποστηρίζει προγράμματα για Windows αλλά έχει και μια beta έκδοση για τα Ubuntu, με πολύ λιγότερα προγράμματα.

Τα προγράμματα για Windows, χωρισμένα ανά κατηγορία, που υποστηρίζονται είναι:

Web Browsers: Chrome, Opera Chromium, Firefox

Οι δυνατότητες όμως δεν τελειώνουν εδώ, το site προσφέρει δύο ακόμα επιλογές η μια είναι ένα updater το οποίο τρέχει στο background και κάνει ενημερώσεις στα προγράμματα μόνο του χωρίς να σας ενοχλεί με ειδοποιήσεις. Η υπηρεσία αυτή είναι διαθέσιμη με 9,99$ το χρόνο για ένα υπολογιστή και υπάρχουν διάφορα πακέτα για περισσότερους υπολογιστές. Η άλλη δυνατότητα που προσφέρει είναι για όσους χειρίζονται πολλούς υπολογιστές, ουσιαστικά τους επιτρέπει να βλέπουν σε πραγματικό χρόνο ποιοι υπολογιστές χρειάζονται αναβάθμιση και μπορεί να κάνει τις αναβαθμίσεις χωρίς να ενοχλεί τους χρήστες τον υπολογιστών και χωρίς να χρειάζεται ο χρήστης να εγκαταστήσει κάτι επιπλέον. Το κόστος για αυτή την δυνατότητα είναι ανάλογα με το πόσες μηχανές χρειάζεται να επιβλέπει ο διαχειριστής και ξεκινάει από τα 20$ τον μήνα όπου αντιστοιχούν για χρήση μέχρι 100 υπολογιστών. Παρακάτω παρατίθενται τα προγράμματα, η λίστα των οποίων ανανεώνεται σε τακτά χρονικά διαστήματα, προσθέτοντας καινούρια και αφαιρώντας ορισμένα, οπότε μπορείτε να την επισκέπτεστε και για να βλέπετε τι νέο υπάρχει για σας.

Πρόκειται για μία ιστοσελίδα, που πρέπει να γνωρίζετε, καθώς θα σας φανεί ιδιαίτερα χρήσιμη και θα σας γλιτώσει αρκετό πολύτιμο χρόνο. Μπορείτε να τη δείτε εδώ www.ninite.com.
