Best Web Development Tools for Windows 10

Best Web Development Tools for Windows 10

Best web development tool for Windows 10 varies based on the personal choices of a web developer. Professional web developers often do not like Windows 10 as their daily computer they prefer Linux or Mac, both are Unix based.  It is not always about catchy Mac experience or Linux security when it comes to software Windows 10 always ahead of others especially Linux. Linux is a great tool for web development but good luck to find more tools like WinSCP etc.  You should always get Mac rather Linux for daily productivity.

In Web Development few tools are must, a web server, a code editor, FTP client, and image editing tool like Photoshop or Gimp and we want all these FREE.  WAMP or XAMPP have been developer choice for a long time as an alternative to Apache on Linux/Mac for Windows computer. Both provide great stability and comes with MySQL database server.

Here is a list for our 3 best web development tools for Windows 10

1. WAMP or XAMPP

You can use any of them both are great but my personal experience XAMPP is better. I found it easy to make any changes in virtual host files. XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MariaDB, PHP, and Perl. Just download and start the installer. It’s that easy.

To download XAMPP on Windows or any other OS, just go here and download your desired version.

2. WinSCP

Over the years WinSCP becomes the leader as FTP client for Windows 10. I always miss it on Mac and Linux. Its latest version is more than a tool for FTP or SFTP. Now it supports a wide variety of protocol to connect to your remote server.

3. Visual Studio Code

This Microsoft open source code editor is one of the best editors for your web developments. I can not live a day without it on my Windows 10. Previously I was a big fan of Sublime Text 3 but I no longer use it, though I still find it faster than Visual Studio Code in some cases.

Visual Studio Code supports all programming languages you remember. It has a ton of extensions, my favorite extension is Git.
