A Lovely SailBoat

I'm just finishing to develop a low-budget web project ( read: based in PHP ), which is driven by the wonderful and popular CMS WordPress.

When one is developing this kind of applications, that one usually performs the work by hand, using  a simple text editor, that, at most, allow to debug and preview the changes real time without the use of a local engine.

Honestly, I must admit that of the most exhausting and boring tasks in any level of a web application, one is to deploy the demo in localhost. Localhost is where the heart is, as you dearest reader know.

However, thanks to this link, I learned that you can develop web applications based in PHP and WordPress too, using NetBeans.

To me, working with NetBeans, from a MAC OS X platform, becomes a rewarding experience; convenient and simple. It has a clear and elegant interface that facilitates and encourages the programmer to develop its task with more impetus, even after hours of work.

A suspected professional reader, would notice that NetBeans might not be a development platform as broad or as professional, such as the Eclipse IDE, or even SpringSource are. I might agree to that suspicious one.

NetBeans, at first sight, does not seem to have all the resources other software has. To develop a simple CMS application, I do prefer the speed and visual beauty that gives a sailboat, rather than the strenght and tools provided in a vessel.

Net Beans IDE is, the sailboat that I will bequeath to fruition in this project. And now reaches version 6.8.

Although is the wish of this yours truly, to clarify this in a future post.

The NetBeans IDE is an award-winning integrated development environment available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. The NetBeans project consists of an open-source IDE and an application platform that enable developers to rapidly create web, enterprise, desktop, and mobile applications using the Java platform, as well as JavaFX, PHP, JavaScript and Ajax, Ruby and Ruby on Rails, Groovy and Grails, and C/C++.
