This section covers the tools you will need to start your web development journey.
The two main tools you will need to follow along:
- A Web Browser
- A Text/Code Editor
Check the previous section if you still need to download a web browser
You can use a code editor of your choice, but I will be using Sublime Text.
Some editors for your consideration:
Notepad++ can be downloaded from the application download page.
Another tool that will be useful to you is the Browser Developer tools that's available in modern Desktop Browsers. If you have a Modern Browser installed (Firefox or Chrome), this is will be available to you.
The Developer Tools can be accessed in Firefox and Chrome Browsers using
Ctrl + Shift + I (for Windows OS) and
I (for macOS).
