Modern web development frameworks & tools

I’m learning how to edit and work on websites, mainly for work, and a bit to keep up to date with modern practices. Here’s a selection of a few tools I heard about recently that seem promising:

  • Sublime Text 2 – Awesome text/code editor, with an impressive collection of plugins and add-ons to make development so much easier.
  • Twitter Bootstrap – Scaffolding and utilities to build/design elements quickly.
  • Less – More horse-power for your CSS (variables, function-like and other tricks).
  • Emmet (ex. Zen Coding) – Quicker syntax for HTML structures and tags.
  • Laravel – Advanced PHP framework.
  • Git – Using git push to deploy a website makes FTP look like an old dinosaur.
