Apps Which Make A Developer's Life Easier

1. Koding


Koding (previously known as "Kodingen") is an Online Development Environment owned by Koding, Inc. which allows software developers to program and collaborate online in the browser without the needs of downloading the software development kits in multiple programming languages, including Python, Java, Perl, Node.js, Ruby, C, C++ .

You can also work with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and many others languages so it will give you a massive portability by developing only using your browser.

2. Aviary’s Image Editor

Providing a world-class photo editing experience for your users couldn’t be easier. Aviary integrates quickly and seamlessly into your existing codebase. You’ll be up and running in no time.

3. jsFiddle


Every developer has been in the situation where you have code or a design that you need to test quickly and possibly share with others. jsFiddle is the perfect solution; it provides a custom environment (based on user selections) to test (or fiddle with) your JavaScript, HTML, and CSS code right inside your browser.

4. CSS3 Generator

This CSS3 generator will help you create style sheets using a very clever system of questions.

5. Loads.in

loads.in gives you the possibility to see how fast your (or any) website loads in a real browser from over 50 locations worldwide.

If you have a worldwide audience, or your site is hosted in a different country from where your visitors live, it is useful to see how long it takes to load your web pages. With loads.in you simply enter the full URL of the page you want to check, and the page is retreived by a browser at a random location. For each subsequent check you can choose a specific location and browser profile.

As a result you will be presented with:

  • The load time of the web page.
  • Snapshots of the webpage at different times during load.
  • Errors or warnings if they occur.
  • A complete timing break down of all elements of your page in a waterfall chart.
  • The possibility to download the timing results in the Http Archive (HAR) format.

6. Resize My Browser

This simple yet extremely useful tool will help you to set the browser size by both Inner window and Outer window.

7. Are My Sites Up?

Monitor your website status and receive alerts via SMS, email, Twitter or more depending on the level of account you choose.

8. Kuler


Adobe Kuler is a web-hosted application for generating color themes that can inspire any project.

9. Pingdom Tools

Pingdom Tools is a collection of tools for testing page load time, ping and traceroute. You’ll get a breakdown of all sorts of information for each test that is very helpful for performance and error testing and more. You can even monitor website performance and uptime for free.

10. Typetester

The Typetester is an online application for comparison of the fonts for the screen.

11. Clickdensity


Clickdensity isn’t just another statistics or web analytics tool – instead it allows you to analyse user behaviour, and identify usability and information architecture issues that would have been missed without Clickdensity’s insight.

12. Twitter Profile Designer


This neat web app will help you create gorgeous backgrounds for your Twitter profile. It is free, easy to use and it has lots of patterns and colors.

13. Springloops


Springloops is a code collaboration and management tool for teams to work together more efficiently and prevent overwriting files or code. Easily manage, collaborate and deploy projects as a team.

14. Domai.nr
