Looking for a web dev environment for Windows 10

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read  

I am starting to get into web dev, and I want to experiment and understand how things like bootstrap and all fit together. I was wondering if there was a clean way for me to start doing that.

Things I am looking for:

  1. Live reloading
  2. Clean text editor
  3. A disposable container within which the web server would run and serve files.

I would really appreciate if there's a way to go back to completely clean state if I mess up or just need to get rid of all the packages

  1. Webpack with its dev server is really useful for that.

  2. Get VS Code. It's free, fast and has a lot of useful extensions.

  3. You could try docker. For development purposes, running the server locally (see 1.) might save time, though.

About messing up: use git as version control software and commit as often as you like.


id recommend virtualbox + xubuntu vm + theai IDE create an OVA

save all code on github/gitlab and restore from your gold OVA every morning
