I know I said that this lesson would be about links, file paths and how to organize your files but let’s move that to the next lesson so we can get you the tools that will make this entire process much easier for you. You need the right software now that you are getting really good at your HTML.
Here are my recommendations for you:
Windows & Mac
Text Wrangler (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/textwrangler/id404010395?mt=12) – A very easy to use text editor that will color code things for you as well. It doesn’t do code suggestions but it is VERY good at giving you only what you need. This app is free, there is a paid version called BBEdit that is available from the company’s web site.
Code Runner (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/coderunner-2/id955297617?mt=12) – Nice and simple like Text Wrangler, but it has code completion and is very easy to use. Text Wrangler supports FTP but this one does not. That isn’t important now but it may be down the road. This app costs a few bucks but it’s worth it.
Ok, those are my favorite tools. I know there are more but these are the ones that made me happy. We can pick up next time with your new tools and hopefully more practice under your belt!
