    Web Developers: Share Your Setup

    Kind of new to Ubuntu and greatly testing the waters. I am dual booting with windows but I am forcing myself to use Ubuntu while I work on websites and such. If there are any others in the programming/web design/development field who care to share their setup/screenshots/etc it would be greatly appreciated. Goal: completely ditch Windows. Go!

    I used to use an Ubuntu box running Bluefish, but I've migrated over to my Win7 box running Dreamweaver...

    Of course, with that being said, I am still hand coding my site. CSS, HTML and PHP included.

    I am currently tempted to hook up a second monitor to my main desktop.

    When I was using Windows I used Notepad2 and thought things couldn't get any better. Now, if you put me in front of a Windows machine to do web developing I'd go insane

    Geany is my weapon of choice. Some of its features I particularly like are:
    - Save all button
    - Can remove trailing and other superfluous white spaces when saving
    - Can close tabs with middle click
    - Colour picker. Invaluable when I'm doing CSS. No more opening up GIMP for its colour picker!

    There's more features either built-in or via plugins like an FTP file viewer, HTML character code picker, etc. If you install Geany I recommend you also install the geany-plugins package.

    Another decent web-focussed text editor is Bluefish. I used it for a while but didn't find it to my liking.

    If you do a lot of file comparing, Meld is a great little tool for diff viewing. There's also an extension for Nautilus called nautilus-compare that lets you select two files, right-click and then launches Meld to quickly compare the files.

    I prefer jed because it's a bit more lightweight than emacs, but otherwise I'm with you. A text editor and a browser is all I've ever used for a decade now. Oh, and the psql PostgreSQL command-line client for interacting with the database backend.
