Essential Software’s for Aspiring Web Developer(PHP)
Everyday web is growing tremendously, Based on its growth many peoples want to become a successful web developer and framework builder. There are huge number of freelancers are doing it as a self employed service and business. Even I am also one among the freelancer.
So here I just gathered few Software’s for beginners to use while come to learn web design.
A web developer must know certain things compulsory. Here I listed few combinations,
- PHP /mySQL,
- Java Web server,
- Pure HTML And CSS
- Js and etc.
Here most of us love to choose PHP/mySQL. Which requires to install a web server and database server. Web servers are popularly known as Apache and IIS.
Apache server is a best choice for PHP Developer, We can use any of the following softwares to create Web server on your local machine.
- XAMPP (Apache, MySQL, Mercury, Filezilla, Tomcat, )
- WAMP( Apache, MySQL, ).
It is most commonly used Web server for many website development. IT contains the pack of Apache, MySQL, Mercury, Filezilla, and Tomcat. this most convenient one for Windows developers.
WAMP or LAMP :
Here its have combination of several softwares and packs,
M- MySQL, MariaDB or MongoDB, and
P – PHP, Perl, or Python,
This is widely used one, most convenient one for linux developers.
With that, few supporting softwares also required.Such as
- FTP (FileZilla is most popular one).
- Mercury ( Email server to take care of Email settings).
- Tomcat( Web Server and Servlet Container).
- Composer,( Dependency Manager for PHP )
- Git( Helps, to create Repositories )
- Text Editor ( Coding work , Notepad++ is my choice).
Most of us, dont care about the Composer and Git, We used to build PHP websites, without utilizing the entire features. Composer help us to include necessary libraries by defining it. Git Also helps to create our Repositories for our websites.
Now , composer and git is available for Windows and Linux OS.
