Some Useful Web Development Tools

In course of working and learning, we all discover some useful tools that just make life easier. But the net is a big place. And usual venues of information sharing - meeting at conferences and swapping tidbits doesn't happen all the time. So am trying to write down a list of webdev tools, and other general tools that I found useful.

There is a lot of choice out there for most tools. So I have included the one we use, and a few others that we evaluated. To begin with,

General Resources
Web Frameworks
  • Django: This is probably redundant here, given that we have been talking of Django all the time. Basically, Python based web framework.
  • Ruby on Rails
CSS Frameworks
JavaScript Libraries
  • jQuery: Nifty JavaScript library that makes html document traversing, event handling and ajax simpler
  • YUI
JavaScript Frameworks
  • Backbone with Marionette: Backbone is awesome when you have a fairly interactive application. Helps you manage the client data display and event handling in a MVC fashion. Marionette is another library that makes backbone easier. Now, just to note, there are many more JavaScript Frameworks coming along. Back when we were evaluating, it was Backbone, Angular and Ember. But by the time I publish this post, this list will probably be outdated. :-)
  • AngularJS
  • Ember
  • Meteor
  • NodeJS
  • ReactJS
Code Editors

  2. There are many published definitions of software testing, however, all of these definitions boil down to essentially the same thing - software testing
    is the process of executing software in a controlled manner, in order to answer the question "Does the software behave as specified?"
