Here I am again. As promised, I’m going to talk about the tools I use to create Anima: UNICO. Without further ado…
Beyond jQuery, I started using jQuery UI as base for the user interface. jQuery UI is a framework with functions to create buttons, dialogs, draggable components, etc.
Modernizr is a small library which easies the design among different web browsers.
Gumby is a framework to create adaptative webpages, ehich adjust themselves to the screen size. Is the base I use to format the page.
3. Frameworks and PHP libraries: CakePHP
For the server-side, I’m using, in a very basic way, CakePHP, which offers me just what I needed.
4. IDEs: Jetbrains WebStorm, JetBrains PHPStorm
Also, through them I discover the technologies from the next point.
5. More: Node.JS/NPM+Grunt, SASS+Compass, Mocha
6. Version control
I started using Subversion as version control, but some months ago I discovered and learned Git, and never looked back. It is a really great VCS.
7. Tasks, general management, online repository: Assembla
I found several online repository options. In the end, I chose Assembla, which offered me a very nice free plan. It integrates with svn and git and offers task and ticket management, that I can integrate with PHPStorm.
8. Reports and web analysis: Google Analytics
That’s all for today. Next day I’ll start with the code structure.
By the way, you can find the code in GitHub. Go ahead, fork it!
