    What tools do you use for developing?

    Hello guys,

    What tools (editors, optimizers, validators, whatever else..) do you use for developing html/php/css pages?

    I also use most of what Daniel said, except for Eclipse and the Zend Framework, which I haven't dealt with all that much before.

    What more important than the tools is how they're applied. Consider that I'm trying to put up some drywall and all I currently have to hand is a paintbrush. It can be done, but recognising the best tool for the job really helps a lot.

    When coding, it's important for me to have the HTML work from the point of view of progressive enhancement, and follow that with simplified javascript code so that it's easy to follow not just now, but many months down the track after I've forgotten all about it.

    The book Clean Code has been very helpful with that.
