Best Tools For Web Development

Hi guys! I am just a beginner in web development and don't know much, but I am sure these tools will help you a lot!

1. Glitch —

Glitch is a tool that you can use to host your websites. Just sign in, create a project, put in your code and it will instantly be available on the internet for anyone to view! Don't worry, you won't be stuck with the subdomain, you can easily add up to 5 custom domains to each project. If you want to make your code and/or hosted app private you will need to upgrade to their paid plan.

2. CSS Gradient —

CSS Gradient is an amazing tool for creating gradients for your websites. It also has a gallery of premade gradients for you to use in your web development projects.

3. GitHub —

GitHub is a tool you can use to share your projects online and allow others to contribute. It is also a great place to find code if you are someone like me and are very new to web development (or you're just lazy and you can't be bothered coding).

4. W3Schools —

If you are just like me and don't know much HTML, then you need to go to W3Schools! W3Schools is an amazing tool because it really helps us new coders to learn code that we can use in our websites.

That's all folks! I'll be adding more soon!

IMHO, you should probably consider checking out MDN Web Docs (usually more accurate) rather than W3Schools.

Some must-have resources among others may include DevDocs (for fast consultation of various documentations) and Can I Use (for cross-browser developments).

I agree W3Schools is often outdated and not really best pratice.
But still good for some silly search like syntax html attributes...etc.

Do you guys use any templating engine like handlebars.js. if so how did you learn and how much time it took you.

Codecademy is also a very good place to start.

I stumbled on CSS Gradient a year or so ago and it's an awesome tool!

W3Schools has several mistakes. MDN ( from Mozilla ) may the most curated resource for the web development.
