Programming tools

Posted 26 October 2014 - 02:20 AM

So guys, what tools do you use to edit your code, upload it to an ftp server etc?
I've been using Dreamweaver for a while but I wanna see what else is out there!

Share your opinions :tooth:

Btw, this could be for non-web languages too!

@tlhIn`toq Only 24gig?

I run more systems on my work computer than on my current home computer (until I receive my new workstation and mirror the systems).

What I use is dependent on what I am doing.
I run a Win 7 Pro with VM Workstation for Ubuntu 14 something and CentOS 6.5.

FTP: Linux terminal/ WinSCP
IDE: VS2013/ Zend Studio 11/ Eclipse/ IDLE/ Linux Terminal (vim)

Ah Zend Studio looks interesting!
What do you like about it?

For PHP development, I haven't seen anything that rivals it. Native support for almost everything I do, including testing. It's like Visual Studio for PHP.

Dreamweaver is a bad idea, FTP is far far worse (plaintext passwords anyone?)

Sublime is the editor I tend to recommend to people. Personally I use Vim, though I've been skirting around Emacs for jollies though they have a much steeper learning curve. I use SFTP for transfers, and tend to live in a command line.

Ah fantastic! I'm a PHP developer myself but I think this would be a more appropriate developing alternative than Dreamweaver, Next time I get paid this is where the money is going!

Hahaha! Sweet. Yeah i've heard a-lot about Subline and i've tried the free version so might consider purchasing that someday! I love how convenient and efficient it is!

Another vote for vi and/or emacs - I've come to a point where the two tools feel like two different hammers to me. Sometimes I want a roofing hammer, sometimes I want a finishing hammer.

Unfortunately, there seems to be no really useful PHP mode for emacs, which means it's not as unstoppably world-beating for that as you might like. But for real languages, you're generally going to have an lot of really useful stuff, and none of the distractions and inefficiencies of a mouse-driven editor, so for a long session I'm saying emacs is probably the way to go. That being said, I really like vi for editing code. The lack of meta keys is a real bonus for my terminally strained fingers.

As for getting the code onto the server, when you get tired of sftp you should look into scripting builds from your repository. It's a fun little project, worth a little tinkering in python. I'm sure you can find tools to do this for you as well, but it's one of those watchmaker things - you start out by building your own tools, and then later on you're allowed to get them ready-made.

Yeah. I need to update it once I have steady paycheck again. Its what the HP DV7t laptop came with. Easier to add memory than redesign a 1 HDD laptop to cram in a second. I picked that model for other reasons such as 2 HDD bays, BIOS that supported true visualization USB 3, bluray burner (for backups), and was a model recommended for doing Hackintosh install on. I figured I could could use one HDD for Windows and one for Mac, but that fell aside when I bought a MacBook for X Code/MacOS iOS development and dedicated the Windows machine for Windows.

I'm guessing you split it 4 gb per vm?

I don't generally run all the VMs at the same time. I'll launch one and do remote debugging into it, say Win7x32. If all goes well I'll close that and open the Win8 VM then remote debug into it. Sometimes I'll launch them at 12 gig to see if a function makes use of the added RAM. Sometimes I'll launch them with 2gig to expose problems with routines by running out of RAM faster. If I am doing a client & server project and need to run both, then I'll launch 2 VMs and have one be the client and one the server, and split memory accordingly.

+1 for this.

Myself, I've always used vi over ssh for my own projects. I've never worked on anything large enough to require it any other way. For employment projects, I use whatever is supplied or required.
