Aptana Studio 3.7

It allows you to develop and test your entire web application

Aptana Studio provides you with the necessary tools that you might need whenever you want to create websites or other web projects. It proves to be a powerful application that helps you create websites from scratch; it also offers you the opportunity to select from a large number of predefined templates, depending on your needs.

The most important aspect about Aptana Studio is that it’s an open-source program. It’s quite surprising that such a powerful and feature-rich application can be used for free. Aptana Studio is able to handle a great deal of programming languages, as follows: Capistrano, CoffeeScript, CSS, HTML, PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Rails, XML and many others.

Althouhg in its initial state, the graphical user-interface looks dark, and can be tiring for the eyes, Aptana Studio offers a lot of theme customization options. Also, it should be mentioned that Aptana Studio requires additional programming knowledge in order to be properly used. Beginners might have difficulties in understanding the functionality of the application, as the Help manual proved to be quite complex.

If you are a web developer in need of an alternative programming platform, Aptana Studio will prove to be a fresh start.
