Gigarank Needs Your Input - Web Development Tools & Resources

#1
Hello ladies and gentlemen, we need a little input from yourselves!

Gigalicous are compiling a list of downloads that makes building websites easier and more fun. The list will be broken up into 4 categories.

1, Top 10 Web Authoring Tools (programs you use to build your websites and publish them online).

2, Top 10 CMS Scripts (Wordpress, Joomla, etc etc).

3, Top 10 File Transfer Programs (FileZilla, CuteFTP etc etc).

4, Top 10 Frameworks ( Bootstrap, 960 Grid System, etc etc).

The compiled data will then go to a poll to determine the top 10 list for each category. Once we have collected all the required data we will publish our findings with information relating to each resource. Please take a little time to think about this one as you may learn some new handy resources for you own projects.

We do not expect everyone to know 10 or more tools, CMS scripts or resources but every little helps.

Post what tools you use and why, so the Gigalicous staff and community can understand why you use it and if it would be of any beneficial use to them.

If you have any questions please do ask, and happy learning :)

Kind Regards,

The Gigalicous Team.

1. Windows: HTML Kit 292: good plugins, built in preview feature, customizeable interface, Notepad++: flexibility, regular updates, choice of plugins
Mac: SEEdit: easy to set up basic pages and sites, built in CSS generation, tools for site organization, TextWrangler: clean, simple interface with good doc type recognition. great search feature

2. WordPress: easy, easy, easy way to get a half decent site up and running in a minimal amount of time, more plugins capable of more tasks than anyone could think possible (quality varies), Joomla: reasonably easy to set up, nice template selection, getting started info included with basic installation, b2evolution: basic site created has good features including a built in decent looking gallery page, good back end/admin layout, Drupal: higher learning curve than Joomla (for me, anyway) but creates stable sites that are built for growth.
Without knowing precisely how to define it, I would put WordPress and b2evolution in one category and Joomla and Drupal in another. Maybe it's size, complexity, which features are needed, maybe it's just "Blog" versus "CMS" but those lines might be getting more blurred as time (and feature sets) goes on - something along those lines.

3. Windows: FileZilla: easy to use, frequent updates, good display of information about files and processes
Mac: Cyberduck: easy to use, clean interface, good integration with any file editor(s) you want to use, good bookmark page if you have a number of servers to access regularly
Okay, I'll admit it they both have cool names - but there's a lesson in that: good product + good name can pay off. If the name will get people to try it and it works well, you're ahead of the game.

4. Not knowledgeable enough to give an informed opinion - yet!

I may add more information to this as things come to mind.

Great question!

I use...

for tools
1. BBEdit (love) I use this at school it's great, I just haven't bought the program yet. It's not expensive at all though. It completes you tags for you like it's reading you mind.
2. TextWrangler (love) It's free and I use this most of the time from home. Only available for Macs. doesn't autocomplete tags but I use it almost everyday and it's cool.
3. Notepad++ I like the color coding and bracket matching that this program does. I use it very rarely when I'm working on my PC. Also a free download.

CMS
1. Wordpress and that's all I have to say about that...

Frameworks
1. Bootstrap
2. JQuery Mobile
I've only worked with this two frameworks maybe this forum will branch my thinking out a bit.

Web development:

1. Notepad++ for php, Javascript, CSS, and some HTML
2. Kompozer for fine-tuning CSS and HTML
3. Paint.net for image/graphic manipulation

CMS:

1. Wordpress
2. PhpBB
3. Coppermine
4. Tiki Wiki

File Transfer:

1. Core FTP Lite

1. I like Dreamweaver because of its efficient, visual GUI

2. Drupal and WordPress are both excellent CMS scripts (I've only used Joomla slightly and was not impressed). Drupal
supports most of the features I require to create blogs, applications, and themed websites. WordPress has everything too, but it is
somewhat unwieldy and complex.

3. FileZilla is the best FTP application I have used in a long time. Unobtrusive, intuitive, and up-to-date, it has a similarly efficient,
visual GUI.

4. Zend Studio is my favorite IDE for HTML, javascript, jQuery, and PHP development. It integrates an FTP client so files stay
synchronized. The debugging tools are primitive, but not invasive.
#11
I've always wanted to learn Dreamweaver. I'm using Notepad++ with Mozilla Firefox, as well as WordPress because they are for free. But hopefully one day I'll be able to use Dreamweaver and PhotoShop. I think both are essential for really great Website Development.

I don't have much to offer, but this is what I currently use.

1) One Note, Editor within the CMS/blog software. I tend to use One Note for actual writing of text and text editing. I also use it to store links when browsing, images, etc. It is really useful for content gathering and works across all of my devices.

2)Wordpress, Gimp (photo editing),

3)Filezilla. .

I have used Drupal and Joomla. I found that the learning curve at the time was just too steep. I have tried Serendipity, Geeklog, and Nucleus. They were ok, but don't seem to have the support that wordpress does. I tried MS Publisher which absolutely sucked. I am still learning, so I don't have a lot of experience with any other tools.

1, Top 10 Web Authoring Tools (programs you use to build your websites and publish them online).
PHPStorm followed by NetBeans PHP edition for HTML, PHP, and CSS / SASS. For SQL I use MySql Workbench since 99% of the time databases I work on are MySql.

2, Top 10 CMS Scripts (Wordpress, Joomla, etc etc).
I don't really use them. I use Slim as a front controller (link router), but that might go away soon in favor of using the database.

3, Top 10 File Transfer Programs (FileZilla, CuteFTP etc etc).
FileZilla or Linux tools like SSH, SCP, wget if necessary.

4, Top 10 Frameworks ( Bootstrap, 960 Grid System, etc etc).
Susy 2 is awesome even though I've switched to using flexbox (which is part of css3, not a framework).
Zurb Foundation is currently changing their grid system to use flexbox, and that's what I was using before.
I like Susy better than Foundation as they stand, because Susy is more flexible in that it basically just does grid math rather than constraining you to a particular grid.

Update ... For file transfer I think I'm going to be switching after many many years with filezilla in favor of bitvise, since I can also set up tunneling, ssh port forwarding g, and of course the ssh shell, but only for windows so it takes a back seat to filezilla.
