Web Development Software





Web development software is used to create websites for both the Internet and intranets. Software can be either locally installed or operated through a cloud interface, and ranges in complexity from simple text editors to full-fledged integrated development environments (IDEs) that include graphics, video, audio, scripting and database support.

I have received an offer to do a web based 3D model for demonstration purposes. I have som experience from working with Solid Works (25 years ago) and a lot of experience from Illustrator and Photoshop. I have googled a bit and it seems Blender in combination with Verge3D can be an option.

I would highly appreciate any input on this topic.

Best regards

Is there an easy way to set up shortcuts using your own domain (but not break or involve the existing website)?

Say the domain is mydomain.com.  People currently can type mydomain.com or www.mydomain.com and it goes to the website.

I'd like to be able to set up shortcuts / redirects so  something like time.mydomain.com would redirect to a specific website (in this case, maybe www.time.gov).

This is for someone else.  A long time ago I found a perl script that I put on my website, called it index.cgi, and it had this info:

$mainpage       = "index.html";
%domains = (      
'www.mydomain.com'          =>  'https://www.mydomain.com',      
#enter shortcuts here      
'time.mydomain.com'         =>  'http://www.time.gov',

#end of shortucts

'www.mydomain.com'          =>  'http://www.mydomain.com/index.html'      
$server = lc($ENV{'HTTP_HOST'});if ($ENV{'HTTP_HOST'} =~ /(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)/){$t='/'}else{if ($server !~ /^www./){$server = '' . $server;}}@domains = keys(%domains);foreach $domain(@domains){if ($domain eq $server){print "Location: $domains{$server}\n\n";$match="yes";last;exit}}unless($match){print "Location:  https://www.mydomain.com/index.html\n\n";exit}exit;      
That does what I'm asking about - enter loads of shortcuts and you can enter that subdomain and it takes you to the appropriate webpage.

Are there other ways via the DNS zone record or something else?  

Are there simpler ways to do this redirect of …

Can anyone recommend a good book regarding the development of SaaS packages? Not from a technical standpoint, but more from an administrative/costs standpoint. And yes, I know I have posted a simple question to a very complex issue, but I am having to start somewhere.

Also, I am interested in anyone who wants to work on the project. It is basically a report generation project with a little math. The reasons for going SaaS are simple: (1) maintaining one piece of software; (2) not having to deal with multiple versions of the software; and (3) piracy.
Hello, and thank you for your assistance!

I would like a graphical design interface to edit and dress up some web pages that I will create using Microsoft C# MVC Code First migrations, which create CSHTML files with Razor code within them.  Is there a tool that will let me drag & drop, etc., move things around visually and let the tool change the file as I design it?  And if there are several, which one or ones are the easiest to learn & use?  I am also in a time crunch with this project.  

Many thanks!

Hi All,

I am evaluating an existing on premise finance application vs an alternative online based application. This will be done via technical assessment of both applications and decide which meets business requirements and present a better overall business value.

I need your help in adopting a "Scientific" approach in selecting the best fit application. Are there any comparison frameworks I can use? The board wants "evidence" of why chosen solution is better than other one.

How do you go about such exercise in a structured approach?

Your help is much appreciated.

Does the old or deprecated web design framework has affected on a new web application functions, performance or even compatibility?

about 15 years ago, I used Dreamweaver to easily deploy dynamically updated forms on the web. The connection to my in house SQL db was intuitive and we were able to deploy quickly. Fast forward to 2018. The Current version of Dreamweaver no longer has this feature readily available.

Before I break open my PHP books, is there an application that can connect to a db and publish data to web browser easily?

I apologize for the broad question...I'm hoping the your feed back will help dial in my much needed research.

This position needs specific skills and knowledge so, I will be happy to receive your advices about :
-      Best practices of communication with vendor
-      Procedures of development web application and templates or other resources and tools I should use.
-      I do not want to let the vendor to build architecture of applications and DBs without get back to us.
-      improve Response time , traffic and web application performance.

what are the best methods to build a free web site without knowledge of html & other programming stuff?
When using ExpandPath, I will occasionally get something unexpected. For instance, I'm trying to move a file from one directory to another.
<cffile action="MOVE" source="#ExpandPath('/tmp/bloop.jpg')#" destination="#ExpandPath('/final-images/bloop.jpg')#">

Open in new window

This is the error I'm receiving:
An exception occurred when performing a file operation moving a file to another filesystem on files /var/www/vhosts/[sitename].com/tmp/bloop.jpg and /opt/coldfusion10/cfusion/bin/redirect:/final-images/bloop.jpg.The cause of this exception was: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /opt/coldfusion10/cfusion/bin/redirect:/final-images/bloop.jpg (No such file or directory).

You'll notice that the expanded base of the source is /var/www/vhosts/[sitename].com (which is what you'd expect it to be) while that of the destination is /opt/coldfusion10/cfusion/bin/redirect:

What's going on here? This isn't the first time I've run across this issue, but I can't seem to Google anything up about it. We're running CF10 on a Linux server. Thanks!

Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Is it possible to customize the "look and feel", layout, etc for Amazon AWS's SAML Federation Landing Page?


When we signin to our company "federation page" it redirects us to "https://signin.aws.amazon.com/saml" (as it should), which displays all of
our AWS accounts/AWS Roles to sign into. However, it's ugly and not really organized/categorized in any way (so you have to always scroll up/down
to find the account you want or do a "Ctrl-F").

I know we can customize our first landing page (company federation landing page), but can we change anything for the redirect/second SAML landing page?

We are creating a product page and this product has 2 configurable types, I will call them LONG and SHORT. We have implemented a double swatch extension that does a very good job of allowing using to configure a product with various options.

We are trying to figure out if we can have the image swatch sizes for LONG set to 100 x 20 and the swatch image sizes for SHORT be set to 20 x 20.

Is this possible in Magento 2 to have 2 swatches, but different sizes. I only see a single place to change swatch image size in the file: vendor/magento/module-swatches/etc/view.xml
Hello, I  have a Wordpress theme, on this theme I would like to reorder the some front page Widgets.  For a visual representation of the Widgets please see Webpage.jpg.  I would like to swap A with B.
