    What languages/platforms do you use? (Everything from javascript to flash)

    What Editors/IDEs do you use? (from notepad to netbeans)

    And, why?



    I use HTML, CSS, PHP, minor Javascript (maybe an "onclick()" here and there), GD, AJAX, and Java. I find PHP easier to use and more suitable for me than CGI. Since javascript is entirely client-side and not very well persistent from browser to browser (or OS to OS), I wouldn't get to fancy with it. GD is great. Ajax is my substitute for Javascript. And Java is good for very interactive material, and even though it is client-side, it won't mess up my entire web page if the viewer doesn't have the correct version of Java.

    For editing I use Programmer's Notepad. Can edit more than one file at a time (in one window using tabs), syntax highlighting for many many platforms (form ASM to HTML to Python to Batch Files), expandable code, etc. Not quite an IDE, though.

    I have a question for you about java. I thought jsp was serverside and applets were client side. Is there another form of java that is client side other than applets? I may sound stupid but I am quite new to this stuff.

    Well, applets are just Java applications that are embeddable into web pages, so I guess another form of Java that's client-side would be just normal java.

    Right now I've been experimenting with Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition....Mostly because we use the professional version of Visual Studio at work...Recently started coding in C#, using ASP.NET and the .NET2.0 framework.

    When I first started out I used everything from Notepad, (still do when I'm in a hurry or on a machine with nothing else) TextPad (great for scripts and manipulating text...I love their block select feature) to Frontpage (gag..this app creates some of the ugliest code ever...My only defense is that i didn't know any better at the time.)

    PyScripter for Python, and just moved up to Flash CS3 from MX 2004 Pro (I like to use Navicat 2004 for MySQL - which is part of the web design, isn't it?).

    go here: http://www.pnotepad.org/. It's very helpful when you're programming more than one things at a time. Especially when they are different languages.


    BTW: I use MSpaint for very simple pixel images, and Gimp for more complicated images.

    Notepad++ occasionally, but Microsoft Expression Web Designer is pretty good. Easy to make consistent sites.

    HTML, CSS, Javascript, AJAX, Flash/Actionscript (those last 3 are practically the same), PHP, SQL, perl etc

    I use: notepad, phpeditor (for colours and bracket matching), phpmyadmin (for SQL/table management), mspaint & adobe photoshop CS2 for graphics, adobe audition 2 for sound (it's like a new version of cool edit with more features)

    I use PHP and MySQL for server-side, HTML and CSS for markup, and JavaScript for client-side.

    The IDE I've been using for a few months now is Programmer's Notepad (link on previous posts). So far it's the best lightest text IDE I've used. For some reason I just hate visual designers.

    For testing purposes I use an XAMPP installation. Lightweight and simple, just how I like it.

    I use phpDesigner 2007 Pro for Windows, Notepad for Windows, and "nano" on linux, great text-based text editor (for use over SSH).

    I code XHTML, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, ASP.NET, CSS, and maybe sometimes ASP.

    For a Development Environment I use Apache 2.0.59 and MySQL 4.0.22 w/ SQLYog and phpMyAdmin.

    ASP & ASP.NET is just "gotta hope it works" ;).
