6 Alternative of Adobe Dreamweaver for Code

Without contest, Adobe Dreamweaver indeed is a very proficient code editor tool in developing and customizing websites because of features that helps programmers and developers see errors as they type codes, or design site layouts with ease. However, because the said software is created by a famous brand, purchasing such program costs a hefty amount, something that makes some programmers awry.

How Adobe Air Works

Since John Warnock and Charles Geschke formed the company in 1982, Adobe Systems has made a lot of what we see on our computers and the information we pass around possible. The Portable Document Format (PDF), for instance, is one of the most commonly used compact file standards available. Businesses use it to pass documents around easily in small file sizes, and nearly anyone who owns a desktop or laptop uses PDFs to view photos or read articles — it’s like having an unlimited photocopier on your computer. On top of this, the company is also behind several important design applications, including Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign, products that allow developers and everyday users to easily create and manipulate everything from a single image to large presentations. Think about it — without Photoshop, there would never be such a thing as an LOLcat to share with friends, and the world would be a sadder place.

When it comes down to it, Adobe has changed the way we handle and develop content, both on the desktop and over the Internet. So it makes sense that Adobe’s next step is to make the connection between the desktop and the Internet as seamless as possible. In early 2008, Adobe offered up its 1.0 release of Adobe Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR). The company calls it a “cross-operating system runtime that lets developers combine HTML, Ajax, Adobe Flash, and Flex technologies to deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) on the desktop.” Adobe is marketing AIR toward developers, businesses and everyday consumers alike, and the company offers the program as a free download on its Web site.

What exactly does Adobe AIR do? What’s an RIA, anyway? What does it mean for people developing new applications, and what does it mean for you sitting in front of your computer?

The Latest Version of Dreamweaver is Out

I’ve been playing with the latest version of Adobe Dreamweaver for about a month now, and it is still one of the best web editors available. It has nearly all the features I look for in a WYSIWYG web editor for web design professionals. and it still ranks at the top of all the Windows and Macintosh web editors out there. but even with all that, this update doesn’t get me very excited. there are some interesting new features in Dreamweaver CS6, but ultimately I wish Adobe would go back in and take a hard look at the Dreamweaver base. what does it do? can it do it better? For one thing, HTML5 and CSS3, while 100% supported in CS6, should not be something you have to know in order to use. Why aren’t these features more integrated into the editor? Why hasn’t the CSS panel changed in years? It works, sure, but it’s not great.
