Hello,

I just brought new MacBook Pro 2011 computer. This is my first Mac. I'm trying to develop/design websites for Joomla, WordPress like CMS.

Question:
Can anyone suggest me best applications (prefer open source, free, commercial) for these scenarios? Web Design -- Editors: To edit PHP, HTML, CSS3 etc.


Note: Actually I likes new Dreamweaver CS5 for Mac, but it's too expensive. I welcome reviews on this product too.

Thanks.

Hi SrinathS,

You sort of need to make a choice here.  Do you need a design tool or a code management tool?

The problem is you won't find a good free tool that does both code management and design.  Dreamweaver is the best option for an all-in-one.

For code, I suggest Aptana.  For design, SeaMonkey

Is Dreamweaver CS5 really worth? It seems to be Aptana is good, but never used it before. Since I user CS3 in Windows.

>> Is Dreamweaver CS5 really worth [it]?

For advanced users who don't mind using a couple of different tools or if you can't afford DW, then no...it isn't worth it.  

If you don't have a good handle on HTML or CSS, DW is worth it for the automation it can introduce.
