Wed Development

3 posts in this topic

I am looking for a FREE web development tool. Something that requires a little less technical skills. I have tried Aptana and Drupal. Both area very powerful tools, but I am spending hours just to learn my way around the basics. It took me a day of going through annoying stackoverflow posts just to get Aptana to run php files. (P.S I really dislike Stackoverflow).

 

 

Thank you for any advice you might have.

Aptana is a development environment. drupal's a content management system. They're not related.

 

If you want to run PHP code you need to install a web server on your computer and access pages from the browser.

 

If you want something easy, try a regular content management system, like Wordpress. My experience with drupal is that it's unnecessarily messy and complicated.

 

The problem is that if you want complete control over how your website looks and behaves you're going to need technical skills. The easier the tool is to use, the less control you have over what it does.
