Web Developer Tools app Review

Web Developer Tools interface..
This post is over 3 years old, so please keep in mind that some of its content might not be relevant anymore.

WDT is a suite of many different tools for web developers.
As said, it has many tools for all tastes.

Not all of them are useful to me but they might be to you… ;-)
For instance, I find interesting how quickly/easily you can produce the CSS code for buttons, layouts or simple text formatting. Very useful if you are not too experienced with CSS (Or maybe you are a WEB developer and you don’t want to get too into design stuff).
There is also a Javascript compressor and a CSS minifier.
Image manipulation. Automatic creation of rounded or squared images, resizing and compressing.
Lastly, there are plenty of resources found on the Internet all divided by categories. Image galleries, Javascript charts, Ajax form, menus, Lightbox viewers etc…

It’s a nice tool. Unique downside for me is that it seemed to be running a bit slow.

Next step? Go on and give it a try. Under Ubuntu (I tried it with Lucid) you can add the repository with:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:petrakis/wdt-main 

and then you will find the package “wdt” in your repository.

Have fun!
