I’ve been use the following, to write codes, managing codes, drawing DFD, etc.
- Notepad++. I use the following plugins
- XML Tools – to linearize / beautify XML
- FileZilla / WinSCP
- SQLYog Community
- Agent Ransack
- Tortoise SVN
- Firefox Mozilla
- Firebug – Set Net > Disable Browser Cache to true
- Putty Connection Manager
- Evolus Pencil (Drawing architecture, DRF, etc)
All these tools are the most convenient for me, and it’s fast to load up rather than using some other tools, even more, it’s free.
