Chrome has a decent UI-faker as well as some preset screen dimensions that include DPI. To get to these great tools: Open the Developer Tools in Chrome by pressing F12. Open the "drawer" by clicking the icon located top-right of the Developer Tools (it's a greater-than symbol next to three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other). Or by clicking esc ...

Short answer: All of them. Long answer: As a web developer you won't get around testing and debugging your applications regularly with multiple browsers. No matter how much you like BrowserX and dislike BrowserY, when the bug only occurs in BrowserY, you need to debug it with the tools BrowserY provides. So as a web developer you need to relinquish the ...

If you're willing to put a bit of work into the setup and handle a learning curve, Vim might be an option. It has autocomplete plugins for many languages, including Python, JavaScript, etc. (disclaimer: I haven't actually tried most of them, but I know they exist). There's even a blog post for using Vim as a Python IDE, including features like debugging. ...

You don't run a forum on apache alone, you need a php and mysql install too. You aren't going to need phpmyadmin unless you're directly working on the database or for initial install. I used phpmyadmin for my first install but I do it correctly these days. Simple Machine Forums is what I tend to use - it's freeware with no ads, works on shared hosting, or ...

I have to say that I think this option is better than my original recommendation; my original recommendation was great for quick looking, this is better for making release packages. UnCSS and specifically what I'm basing the recommendation off of is The Grunt wrapper for UnCSS; that of course integrates into the Grunt build system for great automation. ...

I would recommend you to use Virtual Machine (VM), Windows Virtual PC & Browserstack | Modern.IE which is available for OSX, Linux or Windows. As far as the instruction goes, Download the EXE and all RAR files for the VM (smaller VMs may not have files with RAR extension). In each set below that contains a split archive, a provided text file (....

I have a great option - at least I totally love it - although it is neither a web-app or a Linux application. I recommend the Firefox addon CSS Usage - it does require Firefox and the Firefox addon Firebug. Usage: just load page (via web, localhost (as in my picture) or even just filesystem, open firebug console and click css usage tab Click SCAN review ...

As there were no recommendations, I've ended up using LinkChecker. While most of the cons I've listed with my question remained, using the newest version from the author's site went better than running the version that ships in the repo. LinkChecker GUI and CLI (source: LinkChecker; click images for larger variants) How it matches my requirements Must ...

A dedicated editor for web dev is Adobe Brackets, an awesome piece of open-source software. Here's some features it has you won't find in other editors: Live preview: You can set it up so that when you make a change in the editor, the change will appear immediately in the browser Quick edit: You can access the CSS styles affecting an element by simply ...

Friconix is my favorite Font Awesome alternative All the icons are free it uses CDN Easy to customize (explanations on the home page and Quick Started Guide are clear) I already requested an icon, it was updated in less than 24 hours !

Jan 2017 Update Sadly, Nitrous.io is no more. There is no longer a company and infrastructure behind it. In 2016 one of the founders mentioned a possible open source release of their platform. Nitrous.io Minimal usage is free. More serious usage starts at around $20/month. There is a point system. If you do certain things, you get more points. Points ...

Easy to use is a requirement, but it's very subjective. For the purposes of this question, I will presume that easy to use is influenced heavily by the learning curve. I cannot go past brackets as a tool that would meet all your requirements. Brackets has some very nice features which include the following: Using a hot key to see exactly what CSS impacts ...

You can use GNU wget: free and open source Linux, Windows, Mac (brew install wget) CLI To download all remote assets js,css into local machine in a batch, you can use wget --page-requisites http://turbo.themezilla.com/memo/ --page-requisites: This option causes Wget to download all the files that are necessary to properly display a given HTML page. ...

My recommendation won't fit all your must-have requirements, but as far as I know its the best thats out there that comes close so I want to show it anyway. I've used Balsamic Mockups in the past to mock up web applications, so I think it will be good to mock up websites as well. But keep that in mind, I'm not a web designer but a web app developer. ...

Is URLColors perhaps the extension you're looking for? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/urlcolors/jjccpcminoppplpmcfghflolejbdkekm

I've always like PHPBB (from a management standpoint - though I haven't dealt with more than hmm 3 or 4k registered users (ie a max of a hundred active users)) To run down your features: No ads: Yep none of that ugly stuff. Fully customisable or an option to choose from various themes Open-Source and fully customizable - and has a massive amount of themes/...

Have you looked at Osqa? I've noticed a few sites that have been using it for similar purposes. Out of the box it seems a pretty good stackexchange clone. Given a little styling to look more like a suggestions site and some adjustments to the settings to do things like turn off answers and enable comments only could make it fit your requirements a little ...

Bit Web Server seems to be that. Lighttpd PHP MySQL PHPMyAdmin It costs about 2USD though. There is a free version with a documented limitation "Cannot access MySQL database", which sounds like a big limitation.

Notepad++ already has an option to do that. You just need to activate it under Settings -> Preferences -> Auto completion Check Enable auto-completion on each input (optional) Check html/xml close tag The screenshot is taken from Notepad++ version 6.5.1 (unicode)

Maybe you could have a look at NetBeans. It is Java based, but it's much, much smoother than Eclipse. works everywhere fast (startup takes a few seconds but no slowdowns after that) HTML/CSS/PHP/JS including Angular, JQuery, RequireJS, Knockout, etc. Support for LESS/SASS compiling nice to look at (light blue) powerful refactoring (e.g. Ctrl+R to safely ...

I'm sure you have looked into PhpStorm. Even though it's not free, it's still one of the most used IDEs in the world. It's fast (in my experience) It's great at code recognition/completion (based on IntelliJ IDEA you can even manually set chunks of code to a specific language within a file) Good PHP and JS support (including AngularJS and even Meteor -- ...

PHP Storm is very likely what you will need. (please see the video link at bottom...can't recommend those enough) - Extremely fast -- there's nothing more annoying that a slow/stuttery IDE IMO phpstorm is very fast. It might not start up inside 0.01sec, but once loaded I notice no lag. - Excellent at code completion -- very smart at understanding what ...

Test Browsers In Virtual Machines You can fire up a virtual machine with a specific browser installed and test against that.

Using Live Preview, Brackets pushes code edits instantly to the browser to present an updated page without having to reload. However, Live Preview currently works only on Google Chrome (not even Chromium!). ...

There are many options that would work: Git may be a good option even if (currently) it is only you working in the project (personally, I would go with this one) SVN (but, why? git is better even if you don't use the distributed part) Dropbox (or the like). If you are always (or frequently) connected, is a good option. Beware of name clashes if you use a ...

The problem with "trustworthy" is that trust isn't something one can be recommended to...it's something that you gotta have. (I didn't watch the video but I'm sure you can technically do a rant about just any application/OS developer based on some mess ups...) But what I would suggest is taking a look on some of the more popular browsers based on the ...

I have always liked MyBB as a free forum board choice. It combines a great default UI and an excellent looking Admin Panel. I prefer MyBB over others because of the easy to use UI for myself, the administrator, and the users. Features Nope, no ads Runs on php 5.1.0+ and phpmyadmin compatible (so yes on apache assuming you have php, and MySQL 4.0+ ...

I have made this browser based online unused CSS remover tool. Features: Browser based. Nothing to install. Checks CSS against multiple urls.
