Blueprint

This is a very simple web-development tool. It is a CSS framework that has a very user friendly interface. It has various interactive tools as well as simple plug-ins for buttons, tabs and sprinters. The best feature of Blueprint is the built in typography based on expert principals.

Other features include a grid system that can support almost all layouts, form styles for good looking user interfaces, and print styles that make any web-page ready to be printed on paper.

With it, the web-developer can focus on the content as much as he or she sees fit. It is an easy way to create web-sites, as soon as the person using it gets in the hang of it, of course.

BBEdit 10

The BBEdit 10 tool is developed by Bare Bones Software, and it is very similar to a word processor for coders. With it, a web-developer can have total control over the text.

This gives a web-developer the long desired freedom over the text. It is a simple and user friendly implementation, it helps a lot when copying and pasting text, it has a built-in intelligence that remembers almost all used blocks of text, and sometimes it gives useful suggestions to the web-developer.

It is important to note that this is an award-winning tool, which means that it definitely “doesn’t suck” (as stated in the picture).

CakePHP

This tool makes the web-developing process “a piece of cake”. Its name suggests that it is very helpful and easy to use. With it, the coding process and the process of implementation are done with greater speed.

A web-developer doesn’t need to configure this tool at all. Translations, database access, caching, validation, authentication, and more helpful tools are included. This tool is licensed under the MIT license.

This guarantees that you can use it for commercial apps (all this and many other features are listed in the picture above).

Mini AJAX

This is a tool that is a totally free gallery of DHTML and AJAX codes that can be used by the beginner web-developer, but it is also a handy tool for the experienced web-developer. It is very useful when you are writing large quantities of texts.

The SyntaxHighlighter feature that this tool comes with has proven to be of much help. It handles over twenty different languages, and it is probably the best way to format and highlight examples of code. Besides the three other features that can be seen in the picture, Mini AJAX has a lot more of them.

It is advisable for the reader to follow the link and check the web-site out. There is a free demo for every tool that is featured, so you can give it a try before you purchase it.

In conclusion, coding is a long and mentally exhausting process. Every tool that makes the coding process take up less time than usual is considered a necessity for any web-developer. In the text above, I have listed just the four tools that I found very helpful. There are many other tools that can be of help, when the coding process is concerned. The reader should feel free to explore the web and find the most suitable tools for him or her.
