Web developers need various kinds of tools to help them develop their websites. It is very important for every web developer to have these tools. The web developers use these tools to help them create a site, make modifications, troubleshoot, and so on. There are various tools available for a web developer and the following are among the most popular ones:
Back end developer tools let web developers to inspect and test their applications. They are quite different from web builders and applied development environments in that they don’t help in the actual creation of a site, but they are tools primarily used for inspecting the current user interface of the site or web application and for testing it. The back end developer tools inspect the HTML source code. They can be written in any programming language, but most popular ones are in C/C++ and Java. A front end developer uses these tools to create the graphical user interface for your site.
The inspector view allows you to see how elements are connected and how they behave together in a page. In the “page” portion of the inspector, there are two types of elements – the visible elements and the invisible elements. The visible elements are those with a focus label such as a Text node, a Label, or a graphic. Elements with a none label are the ones that do not have focus. When you move your mouse over an element, you get a preview of what it will look like when that particular element is clicked.
Another popular tool among the various types of developer tools is the debugging browser. This tool enables the user to view and manipulate the HTML source code. This feature is commonly referred to as the developer tools engine. It is used to debug regular expressions and various parameters.
Other popular features of the different types of developer tools include error checking, code folding, and navigation. Error checking enables the user to make sure that the program follows standards and does not have bugs. With the code folding tool, developers can quickly find and evaluate functions without having to navigate through each function. Navigation makes it easier to locate functions by navigating through the menu and selecting the function or subfunctions that you want to examine.
Browser checkers play an important role in the debugging process. These tools allow you to test your website’s compatibility with the major browsers. For example, the “web browser checker” found at the “Tools” menu bar of Internet Explorer can allow you to compare your site with the latest version of Internet Explorer. There are other web browser checkers that can help you do the same thing in Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, and Android. There are also a few that are designed specifically for Mac OS X. Web developers often refer to these programs as a “web inspector”, because they enable you to see your web pages as they would appear in a particular web browser.
