Web Design and Development on Ubuntu

February 9th, 2009   Posted by Ted in Code, Reviews, Uncategorized

For years we’ve supported open-source development and creative commons, building some of the first instances of ecommerce on Linux machines and JRun. Now that we do less hosting and more design/development so we primarily use Linux machines as desktops. One favorite flavor of *ix we like is Ubuntu, both on Windows boxes and many more as virtual machines on MacIntel. Here is a collection of tools we use for web dev and design:

Creative Tools
Wonderful 2D drawing program called Xara Extreme.
Inkscape is similar to Illustrator or Xara.
An easy to use 3D modeling app called Art of Illusion.
Full featured 3D modeling app: Blender.
A very powerful 3D Rendering Engine, PovRay and its Modeling app twin: PovModeler.
Of course there is the The Gimp which comes with Ubuntu and can be installed on many flavors of *ix.

Programming Editors and Tools
Aptana makes a full suite of tools (especially nice for Ajax).
Komposer is a Dreamweaver type WYSIWIG editor.
Amaya is a very solid HTML/CSS editor from the W3.
