I love front end web development. I love software. This is simply a list that marries the two, and it’s for mac users only.
Sublime Text 2 – Amazing text editor vital to the coding process.
ImageAlpha (THE best png optimising tool I’ve ever used).
iTerm 2 – Great terminal app that extends the boring old terminal.
MAMP – Yes, sometimes you have to render php and mysql!
Github app – only if you just can’t handle the command line/terminal.
SourceTree – Wonderful diff and merge app.
Evernote – Save code snippets and retrieve them anywhere you have internet.
VirtualBox – to then run…
IE8 – for testing. Test IE8 as early on in the project as you can.
Compass – So you can Compass power your SASS!
ColorMaker – the best Mac color creation and organising app.
NodeJS – so you can install…
CSSLint – Run the CSSLint.com app locally on one or more css files.
Respond.js – When your media queries simply must work in IE.
