Best Mac Apps for Developers


If you have a business or own your own site, it is more than likely that you hired a web developer. A developer is a programmer who creates programs and applications for the World Wide Web. A web developer knows how to build a website from the bottom up: they can create custom code to accommodate your unique needs, developing everything from the site layout to features and functions on the webpage. With technology taking over everything, this field is becoming extremely popular and important. I decided to look into this job function to see if it was something I could tackle or learn to do on my own. I soon realized that there are many resources and mac apps available to help you learn and make the job easier for you. There are apps available that can be used by those who are beginners all the way to experts. They simply would make the job easier. To make the research more interesting, I also came across the app Setapp. This app actually takes some of these useful apps and puts them all in one place for you to access. It gives you unlimited to these type of apps (and dozens more) only for a small minimal fee. Once you discover the functions of the apps included, this is a no brainer that is sure to be worth your while. Below I have outlined a few apps that I found helpful for developers that are available through Setapp.




Most developers can write HTML but if not, you are in luck. With RapidWeaver you can build the website that is your vision without writing a line of HTML. This makes website design achievable for anyone willing to learn. It can handle writing for simple personal blogs to complicated online stores.




One important aspect of developing a site is your server and its reliability. I am able to open Simon, an app included with Setapp, that allows you to monitor your servers at all times. It allows you to receive notifications if a server goes down or recovers. You can even watch sales or comment activities on new posts. All of the capabilities are beneficial to developers.




With the popularity of writing code and developing sites, it is important that your content can be interpreted across languages. With the help of CodeRunner, one of the apps included with Setapp, you can edit and run code in any programing language with just one click. It was built on the principle that you should be able to run code instantly, in any language.


There are so many resources available to developers, but it is so nice to find a resource that has so many apps available at your fingertips. Look into these apps and others to make your job a little easier.
