Mac OS X Web Programmers Toolkit

Free (gratis)

  • Fugu - Secure FTP. SCP etc. Hasn't really been updated in a while but it works pretty well. Allows you to edit remote files with your favorite local text editor.
  • TextWrangler - Decent text editor from the makers of BBEdit. Major deficiency is that it doesn't support nested languages (e.g. Javascript within HTML, HTML within PHP, etc.).
  • RegExhibit - Interactively test regular expressions
  • Locomotive - Ruby on Rails in a box. A single standalone application that includes Ruby, MySQL, a web server, and an application to manage them all.
  • MySQL 5.0
  • PostgreSQL
  • CocoaMySQL
  • Aquamacs Emacs - Holy union of emacs and Aqua. Normal emacs key bindings work (e.g. C-e end of line). Normal Aqua keybindings work (e.g. Cmd-a select all). Includes various elisp functions to bring emacs closer to the 21st century. All in a nice OS X native application with lots of polish.

Not Free

  • TextMate - Best text editor ever. (Sorry emacs).
  • Transmit - Best FTP/SFTP/SCP client ever. Allows me to edit remote filew seemlessly with TextMate. These days I'm often connected to the internet intermittently or with high latency. Editing files in this idiom (which seems to be almost unique to the Mac) is the best way around that.

I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means found any interesting
article like yours. It's beautiful price sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net can be much more helpful than ever before.

Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
