"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Morgan, thanks for your reply but it doesn't make much sense.

I'm looking for some sort of visual software that I could use to map out the flow of a script, just very quickly, so then I would follow that Schema writing actual code

Personally I use Draw.io to visualize the flow - it does not have any scripting links but it does allow me to show the flow and interactions that I can there share with the role players and talk over.

There are wire frame tools out there - I personally haven't used them - I prefer to wireframe in code. Write the shells of the functions and classes - test them good testing methodology. Use API testers (Postman and my own homegrown version) to ensure endpoints work.

For visual I use libraries that handle a lot of the UI for me (Bootstrap, Material).

I am not convinced there is one tool that will do all of these as well as I would want. They seem to be more for those that don't have a lot of experience. When have been coding a while you build up boilerplates, snippets, tools, scaffolding scripts that do the repetitive stuff for you. The prototyping then parallels the coding process - which in combination with a good visualisation is the perfect fit for me - but I can't speak for all developers.

This is very subjective, as it depends on your 'style' of planning.

  • Project/task/bug management software
  • Flowchart or even Photo editing software (to sketch out your plan)
  • The good ol' pencil and piece paper/napkin method
  • etc.
