Handy Shares Essential Web Apps Every Developer Must Have
Web Apps are getting more common and have more than enough resources to help developers in a pinch. Handy believes that you should make use of these resources to their fullest extent for more convenience and to get the job done. Here are some of the best web apps every developer must have:
- Stack Exchange – Stack Exchange is a quintessential web app that developers just can’t do without. This nifty group of Q&A sites has topics with abundant range and is a reliable resource to 11 million users. On Stack Overflow, one of the specialized sites with programming at its heart has a dedicated group of developers who answer your queries within minutes. For beginners and even intermediate developers, it is indispensable. Next time you are stuck, just hit the stack.
- Regex 101 – If you want to explore regular expressions, this app is the obvious choice. Based on your pre-defined regex, you can just paste a text and find its matches. However, that’s not the end of its functionality. It also offers a dynamic explanation behind the workings of the regex and displays errors, if any.
- GitHub – Any list of resources for developers is incomplete without GitHub. The web service allows you to manage and access Git repositories and features like project releases, wikis, tracking, and encourages more open source participation, unlike any other platform. It is a place that lets you manage, document, and even release a software project.
- Unicode Table – If you ever wanted a directory with Unicode for everything from emojis and currencies to Chinese characters, Unicode Table has you covered. For each character, you get the full pastable version of not just Unicode, but CSS and HTML codes as well.
Handy suggests that you make full use of these web apps to learn, improve, and cut down on some of the hassles in your coding experience. If used efficiently, they can give you a significant boost in productivity that would go a long way in your developing (pun intended) career.
